Hydrolyzed Yeast Extract, Hydrolyzed Whey? Gf?
0

3 posts in this topic

On the non-gluten-free food list on this site it only says Hydrolyzed Wheat is not gluten-free, but in another article I read stay away from the word "Hydrolyzed" period.

I have two products. One is Trader Joe's Whey Protein Powder and one of the ingredients is "Hydrolyzed Whey". Another is Anderson's FF Split Pea soup, listing Hydrolyzed Yeast Extract in the ingredients. Can't seem to contact either company and I'm not sure how I'd ask the question anyway.

Anyone know about these two "hydrolyzed" items?

Oh, how I would hate to have to give these products up.

Thank you.

Hydrolyzed means to undergo the addition of hydrogen (or water), yeast is a fungi, and whey comes from milk. These items by their definition wouldn't contain any wheat; however, cross contamination could still be a potential issue. Protien powders are made in factories that also make protien bars and many of these bars contain wheat. This doesn't necessarily mean that the powder will have wheat in it, but could be a concern.

You definately need to be suspect if the ingredient says, "hydrolyzed vegitable protien" as vegitable is too general of a term.

This said, I use a whey protien powder myself on a daily basis, although not TJ's, and I have had Anderson's pea soup once with no problems.

Hope this helps,

Mike

Thank you Mike for your reply and precise description. It all makes perfect sense. My concern was more toward the yeast because of being suspicious of how it was produced, say on bread, which I had read somewhere. (Am I nuts?) Whey was my least concern however, I had to DC the TJ's whey protein because it did list wheat, an initial oversite on my part. I've since gone to using Solgar's "Whey to Go", in hopes that it is ok. (I'm still researching it, since I bought it before being diagnosed gluten intolerant). Good point about the factories making protein bars that contain wheat and thus a set up for cross contamination.

I'll watch out for hydrolyzed veg protein. Thanks for the tip. I'm just about to throw out some veg broth powder for lots of suspicious ingredients, and I believe that was listed as one of them.

I contacted Anderson Soup company and they informed me their soup was in fact gluten-free....Ahhh, I'm in heaven again, and without fear.

Thank you again--- and Happy Holidays,

Kandee

    • Weird things people have said
      I've had people say strange things about celiac to me lately... Like someone said, "Oh I'm just a mild celiac so I don't have to worry about cross-contamination." And then someone else said that they're celiac but things have calmed down now so they can have a bit of gluten here and there. And I told my doctor that back in 2014 I thought I had been gluten free but I actually wasn't because I had been repeatedly glutening myself with an old colander. And he just looked at me like I was insane, like a colander?? Sure... I'm not crazy, right? Even if you have no symptoms you have to avoid cross-contamination because you can be doing damage internally right? You can never have 'just a bit'. And a colander is a big source of cross-contamination right?? I know all this but why do these other people not? Why does my doctor not know? So confusing and spreading misinformation... And then they look at me like *I'M* crazy.

      Look up FODMAPS.   That might clarify things for you.  There really are a lot of diet recommendations so make sure you bring a list of questions regarding foods to your doctor's  and dietician's appointments.

      Thank you for sharing those web sites. I will look at them. We have been gluten free since December so it's been a while. Once, he had a gluten free beer, the kind that they take the gluten out, and his legs felt very heavy and had a more difficult time walking. I really don't want to experiment.  Although I am very careful about what we eat, I am concerned that some of our medication could contain gluten. Is there any easier way to tell if medication has gluten. I did find a website which listed drugs and known gluten but every drug was on it or was determined to be gluten free
    • fructose malabsorption and gluten intolerant
      I don't have celiac but doctors or amazed I don't so they told me to fallow the gluten-free diet like I have it... any way I was wondering if one can have corn, corn starch if they have fructose malabsorption. I am so confused on what I can and can't have.. i have an appt next week hopefully with a dietitian... also can you have sugar free stuff since it's not sugar.. I'm reading online and I'm getting a bunch of mixed info on both.

      Hi all.  Still feeling the same way this past week. I'm thinking of dropping dairy starting from today, I don't know if I have a problem with it or not, but I drink 2 coffees a day with milk. I'm just constantly tired all the time, and getting trough the day is pretty hard, I noticed a couple of weeks ago that my sleep was improving but the last couple of days I have been waking up at least 3 times during the night, then when I get up in the morning it feels like I have been hit by a bus, like I haven't slept at all. I keep waking up during the night needing to drink water as I feel dehydrated, I don't know why as I drink 2-3 litres of water everyday

      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.
