Does anyone know if the milk chocolate chips made by Nestle are gluten free? Also the white chocolate chips?

Thanks Stephanie

My work was looking into buying nestle chocolate so I tried doing research on any allergens. I tried calling them and never got a response back. I'd love to know too!

Nestle chocolate chips are gluten free. They will clearly list gluten, so always check the labels. :)

Thanks Jenny, :) I did check the label, however in the ingrediants it states there are artificial colors. According to the unsafe food list on this website, artificial colors may or may not contain gluten. So how do you know for sure without contacting the manufacturer? This isn't always so easy since it always seems you need to know after they are closed... :rolleyes:

Since I am so new to this maybe I am going about this all wrong....

new too and have a hard time getting a straight answer from manufacturers too, when i do get a hold of someone. is it that they legally can't say "gluten-free" on some items? i have gotten - we can't say it's gluten-free but the ingredients do not specifically contain gluten - or something like that. but there are those questionable ingredients like natural flavors where i don't know what to do.

Some companies will not hide gluten at all--even under natural or artificial flavors. Nestle is one of those companies, as is Kraft. So, if there is gluten in the natural flavors, it will read something like Natural flavors (barley). If it's Nestle or Kraft, and you don't see wheat, oats, barley, or rye at all, then it's gluten-free.

There is a list somewhere on this board of all the companies that plainly list gluten and won't hide it under anything (food starch, natural flavors, artificial flavors, etc.). It's a useful list to have, as it saves some time from calling companies and such.

It can be so difficult in the beginning, so please let us know if you have any other questions!

Here's the list. I bookmarked it. Thanks to who ever posted it! I called all the companies and I suggest that you do the same. One of the companies (Blue Bunny???) just did not have products that contain gluten, but they did not have a gluten policy. Everything on the list was fine, but it's always a good policy to call yourself. :)

This is great. It's always hard to know which companies you can trust. Do you know if the same goes for these companies in Canada?
