Smarties Candies

5 posts in this topic

Does anyone out there happen to know if Smarties are gluten-free? I am very new at this and cannot find if some of the ingredients are allowed. I want to put these in the goodie bags for my son's birthday party tomorrow. Thanks.

"Smarties contain none of the following common allergens: gluten (from wheat, barley, oats, and rye), soybeans, milk, eggs, peanuts, nuts, seeds, fish, shellfish, or mollusks."

This is from a posting by Connie R-E in Baking and Cooking Forum under "Valentine's Day". She is talking about the Smarties Valentine Hearts, but I have seen Smarties on gluten free candy list before. They should be fine. You could always call the company to double check.

What are the ingredients you are questioning anyhow? Maybe we can figure it out that way. We want your son to have a great birthday party, right?

God bless,

Mariann :)

The one ingredient I cannot find on any lists is "calcium stearate". Also lists "artificial flavor and artificial colors.

I think the only way to really tell if natural and/or artificial colors/flavors are gluten-free is to call the manufacturer.
