I don't know what sour patch kids are, but sugar itself shouldn't have gluten issues. Domino is gluten-free. I suspect it's something else in there if it's a processed candy. Good luck. Hopefully others will post.

If sugar bothers you, you may have a Candida yeast overgrowth. Candida feeds on sugar, and causes a host of physical symptoms. There is a home test that you can do, called the saliva test. Search under "Candida saliva test" or "Candida spit test. That should tell you how to do it. If you do have it, the best product out there to get rid of Candida is called Threelac. It's expensive, but it works very well. It could just be that sour patch kids are not gluten-free, but that I don't know. Good luck.

Do Sour Patch Kids contain gluten?

No, Sour Patch Kids do not contain gluten. Manufacturing lines and ingredients may change from time to time. As such, it is recommended that you carefully review the product packaging for ingredient declarations prior to each use.

from Schweppes FAQ page.

I guess those little sour patch kids are on a gluten-free diet :P

Oh man, I was wondering the same thing!

I've had a sugar obsession as of late and all my favorite candies have been making me miserable every time: swedish fish, sour patch, gummy worms, all of it. I got to thinking sugar was gluteny too...

That Candida business is scaring me. I can't tell if I'm a hypochondriac or if I've really got multiple issues.

sugar doesn't give me gastro problems as long as there is no gluten in it, however I DO have a serious problem with sugar. Whenever I eat sugar, even if it isn't very much, I become depressed the next day. The more I have, the worse the depression is. It's terrible! Even before I discovered my gluten intolerance I knew that sugar negatively effected me and I try to avoid it at all costs!

I'm not sure about the situation in North America, but here in Ireland jelly sweets (candy)

can be dusted with flour to stop them sticking together.

In most cases they use cornflour (starch) but a few use wheat flour!

Even if cornflour is used, and it was milled alongside cereal crops there could be cross-contamination, so accordingly we are all very careful.

Also Coeliac (celiac) Disease is linked to Type 1 Diabetes.

In general sugar is a horrible thing to ingest. As a human, it's impossible to avoid or not have a craving for it. I react similarly to you. yesterday I ate a bag of swedish fish and a half hour later i was irritated, tired, achy and thirsty. I'm not sure if it would be a candida problem but it's definitely sugar related. This is a link to what sugar does to your body (and it'll make you want to avoid sugar altogether!):

I have terrible problems when I injest sugar. Some digestive problems, but mainly problems with my moods and emotions. I actually have these problems when I take in too much of anything sweet. I avoid honey, cane sugar, maple syrup, fruit juices, or any other concentrated form of sugar. I feel so much better both physically and emotionally when I eat this way.

If you have candida and don't get rid of it, you'll never get better. It's definitely worth checking out. Just a side note, Threelac works well for many people, but it made me worse. Not really sure why.

    • Hi, No, I do not have celiac  disease. I have an ankylosing spondylitis which is an auto-immune disease provoking an inflammation of the joints. Under the advice and supervision of my doctor and the professor at the hospital I follow a gluten free & casein free diet, which is extremely successful in preventing inflammatory events. And I've been doing so, strictly, for more than 6 years. So I'm not Celiac, but I can tell you that I react strongly every time I take gluten even in small amounts. Even soya sauce, which according to this website has an almost zero dose of gluten, is a lot too much for me. Nevertheless I allow myself to eat food which has been processed in a factory which processes gluten. To conclude, I would say that when you are travelling, especially in a country where celiac disease is scarcely known, you should be twice as careful as when you're going out at home. In the end you can never guarantee that the cook has cleaned his pan after using soya sauce and so on... You can only bet

    • No!  Once you fill the tub, if you sit in it for 3 minutes or you stay for 10... It doesn't change the amount or cost of the water.  That's only relevant if you have 3 kids to cycle thru that same water.  Is your hub bathing in the same water after you? Lol  And even if you add some more hot and stay longer....well...it's much cheaper than perscription meds, vodka or a substance that is legal in a few states.     Of course this only pertains to those of use with running water.... If you make your hub haul water from the creek or well and heat it over a fire....
    • Whether it is bona fide dermatitis herpetiformis, or severe eczema or hives or what have you, we all want to know how to stop the incessant itching.  Through all my research, the solution comes down to one thing: a good long soak in the tub-- with baking soda or Epsom salts or some kind of herbal tea, followed by a rub down in thick expensive lotion.  I don't know about you, but I was brought up to "get in, get done get out."  A long soak in the bath was a frivolous luxury, and a waste of time and hot water.  So now I'm having this awful breakout from forgetting to read a label and got wheated.  And every night I've been soaking in a baking soda bath to relieve the itching and aid my recovery.  And it's been hard! (But it's been very helpful too)  It has been hard to reconcile this "frivolous luxury and waste of time" as medically necessary!  Fortunately I've had no judging, and only support from my husband, who has had a similar upbringing.  Does anyone else struggle with this?

      I have celiac disease and have been gluten-free for almost 10 years.  I am extremely sensitive to gluten, noting that I react within 15 minutes of contact and in fact the doctor suspects that there may also be an actual wheat allergy at play but have never bothered to be tested since I avoid it like the plague!  I am curious to know if anyone else reacts to flax or inulin?  My symptoms with those two are almost identical to gluten so I have to really watch for that in gluten-free breads and baking and recently discovered after the fact that flax was in the juice I was drinking. I know that people with gluten issues can have other problems as well and in fact I also avoid milk products.  Even after 10 years, and although it has become a way of life, it's still frustrating to have to read every ingredient on every label.😞
