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.

    • So I've been glutened....
      That sounds like a plan JMG.  If things aren't working then make a change, hopefully a positive change.  It seems to me we have more noticeable symptoms sometimes after being gluten-free a while.  I made a mistake last night and ate some tuna canned in water.  It definitely wasn't boring.  I usually have more sense than to eat tuna canned in water but screwed up last night.  They canned  it in broth of some sort.  Ingredients say vegetable broth and soy.  Yuck, not good for me.  It sure tasted good though, just ouch.  I am not saying it had gluten in it, but it does have soy and some kind of unnamed veggie monsters.  So it could be soy, or carrots or some other disgusting vegetable that got me.   Not all celiacs have additional food intolerances beyond gluten, but some do.  My gut could testify to that.  Anyway, if you have bloating, cut out all carbs and sugar for starters.  And try peppermint tea or Altoids.  Over here we have something called Pepto Bismol that helps soothe gut pain and another neat thing called aspirin.  And gluten-free beer as needed.  
    • Gluten free apparently not helping entirely
      Jean, Maybe your boss can find you a job in the office for a while?  It's worth asking maybe? It's not easy being on constant travel with celiac disease but it can be done.  Your effort to find safe food is going to be harder than most but it is not impossible.  But if you can't manage it you should really think about getting a non-travel job.  Your boss may be willing to work with you on an office position, even if it's temporary.  That would give you some time to look for a local job and also eat a safer diet. It's really up to you to control your diet and make sure it is safe.  If you can't figure out how to  do that while traveling you owe it to yourself to figure a way out of the travel. Celiac disease isn't always fun and games.  Not always.   I hope you find a way to improve your circumstances.
    • Gluten Free baby food pouches?
      Anyone know of any baby food pouches that are gluten free?  We love to have them on the go for our kids (not just baby), but I have no idea which ones to get now!  We used to get Meijer brand and Plum.   Thanks!
    • gluten free, oat free, egg free breakfast ideas needed for 6 year old
      Thanks for everyone's suggestions!  I think I felt at a loss when we had to cut oats- we used to do cheerios and oatmeal regularly and now those are out.  She has a sensitivity to oats as well as wheat/barley/rye. 
    • So I've been glutened....
      The bloating has, if anything, got worse. It seems better when I'm lay down, when I stand it gets worse. Although the lymph swelling has gone down so maybe I'm through the worst. Hope so anyway... I never used to get a great deal of GI symptoms. Certainly not so serious as the other stuff. It's making me wonder if I just react differently now having been gluten-free for some time. I've noticed lot's of you saying that reactions seem to change over time. Of course its possible the other stuff was masking the GI things. I almost dont trust my memory of those times anymore because a whole chunk of my life seems to have been lived through a brain fog. Tomorrow I'm thinking of going away for a couple of days, maybe just taking some ultra simple food with me so I can try and settle my stomach by boring it into submission

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
