When we first went gluten-free, Nesquik was safe. I just went to buy some nesquik the other day and found a cc with wheat warning on the label. So I checked their website, and they didn't indicate it. I emailed them, and this is the response I got:


Dear Mrs. *

Thank you for taking the time to contact us about Nestlé® Nesquik® chocolate. We welcome questions and comments from loyal consumers such as yourself and appreciate this opportunity to assist you.

We have read your email and researched your inquiry. All Nesquik Powder flavors, including the No Sugar Added, are made on equipment that also processes wheat. There is no direct addition of gluten, but there is cross-contact potential. For this reason, no flavor is considered gluten free. A cross-contact statement is being added to all packaging.

At Nestlé, we are dedicated to you and your family throughout every phase of your lives. Your feedback is valuable to us, as it helps us to improve our products and services.

We appreciate your interest in our products and hope you will visit our website often for the latest information on our products and promotions.

Sincerely,
Samantha Winckoski
Consumer Response Representative

I am emialing them back to lodge a complaint. I suggest we ALL do this to hopefully get thier attention.

The cost of independent facilities throughout the manufacturing process are *very* high, and in many cases, the cost/benefit analysis will *not* put dedicated lines or facilities as the winner. It's good for them to have the data, but we do need to keep in mind that the business case is not on our side. (1% is not a big enough market, and "just gluten intolerant" isn't solid enough to be factored into business cases with heavy weighting.)

I eat things made on shared equipment.

I watch for a reaction ... and if something causes a reaction, I don't eat it anymore.

I know some people don't want to do it that way, which is fine. This method wouldn't work for someone who didn't react to small amounts of gluten.

Nesquick said the product had no gluten ... possible contamination. Pretty much everyone says that. We have a sue-happy society, I'd say that, too if I manufactured food.

I actually do this as well, and I do not use Nesquik but I am not a milk drinker so that is my reason. I use many items that have the CC warning and have not had an issue.

There are many products I use that have this type of CYA warning and, given the extreme reactions for some nut allergies, I can appreciate why they would do it.

BTW, if it's just chocolate milk you're after, Hershey's Syrup Special Dark has no soy in it. I just happened to have a bottle near the computer (thanks to Hubby) and it lists the following ingredients:
Sugar, high fructose corn syrup, corn syrup, water, cocoa
Processed with alkali: contains 2% or less of salt, mono- and di-glycerides, xnathan gum, polusorbate 60 and vanillin, artificial flavor

It could be hiding in the artificial flavor but they would be required to list it as an allergen and there is no listing for soy.

I agree. I'll buy stuff that's made in a facility with wheat products, but if it says "may contain" I stay away.

I was just reading about the Nesquik may have a cross contamination issue. My 6 year old was diagnosed with celiac disease in Oct. 2006 through blood work and Nov. 2006 through the scope. I have hopefully kept him on a gluten free diet since the blood work. I give him the Nesquik ready to drink bottles. Do you know if there is that chance with those as well? I looked on it and did not see anything.
Thanks for any information you may have.
Diana


I am new to this so I hope I did this the correct way. :rolleyes:

I also give my son food made in shared facilities. The way that I look at is that nearly all non-specialty foods are made in shared facilities and likely on shared lines, and some companies are upfront and honest about it. If I only gave my son foods made in gluten-free facilities that would severely limit his diet and life style. If my son has a reaction to a food then I will throw away that item, but I may buy it again in the future because cross contamination seems to be a hit and miss process (mostly miss thankfully). It's just my point of view. I want my son to be happy and healthy, but I cannot keep him in a bubble.

My kids love both the Rich Chocolate Ovaltine and the Carnation Instant Breakfast Chocolate powder. Now both probably have the same CC risk since both products have other flavors which contain malt, but they don't ever seem to have any issues with either product and they are all pretty severe in their reactions when they do get glutened...

Neither product has soy in it, (I also have a soy allergy so I avoid that particular contaminate!), but they do have milk in them (which I also avoid), so I don't drink them. I do use the Hersheys Special Dark syrup on occasion though! No dairy or soy in that!

I love Carnation Instant Breakfast! Alas, it's got a lot of lactose in it...add milk to that, and it's dangerous stuff...even with Ultra Lactaid. :lol:

I know what you mean. I am casein intolerant and try to avoid all dairy all the time. So I can't even take Lactaid to help...The breakfast shake mixed with milk would just be pure torture!

I know this is an old post, but I'm glad I found it!  Had a few sips of my husbands Nesquik last night, woke up feeling awful with joint pain and have spent most of the day in the bathroom.  That explains it!  I'm always very careful because both my son and I are extremely sensitive to any gluten content. 

 

Thanks for the info!

I see many people here use or would use this. However, I will avoid it. Blenderly, you saw possible reaction to this, others say they have not. It seems some people may react even when others do not. I would be cautious about waiting for a noticeable reaction. That is, many don't exhibit a noticeable reaction to gluten. But what is happening really in your body? I am very sensitive myself. While many things can have a risk of cross contamination, when I see that something is made on equipment shared with wheat especially - not worth the risk! A reaction for me is a horrible experience! I tend to avoid processed foods as much as possible except where specifically gluten free (I prefer the companies that focus on this). I know this is a challenge for parents. I would be particularly careful if my child was sensitive though. 

I apologize if that sounded preachy. I was just surprised at the posts. Usually in this forum I see everyone being extremely cautious of any risk, even when obvious symptoms are not present. I love chocolate, but will avoid Nequick.

These original posts are 6 years oldThe products may not contain the same ingredients any longer.  Please look at the ingredients, company websites, maybe even email the company if you feel the need.  Just don't make any assumptions based on such old info.
