Recently I've noticed that the containers of Yoplait yogurt do not say gluten free on them. Does anyone know if they changed the ingredients?

Yoplait is gluten free with the exception of the ones with cookies and granola. There have been reports of random gluten free labeling, but I don't believe it has anything to do with the contents.

Today I just brought some new Yoplait's and they all say Gluten Free and are all new stock. I heard that a lot of the "fat free" and "Light" yogurts (including Yoplait and Dannon and Breyer's etc) are NOT Gluten Free, but the "regular" and "low fat") ones are.

Today I bought Yoplait Thick and Creamy, Yoplait Whips Light and Fluffy (not the Fat Free version) and Yoplait Original. All have expiration dates out in Feb or Mar and all say Gluten Free.

I generally go by the ingredients (watching for the notorious "starches" to be cornstarch or tapioca starch specifically). However, recently there was the Dannon issue, where Dannon came out and said that NONE of their yogurts could be considered gluten-free - I think there was a thread on here with a quote from Dannon.

So, now I buy Breyers Fruit-on-the-Bottom and Yoplait (as above).

I'm going to go to their site (Yoplait) and see what they say - if anything I'll post againl.

According to the Clan Thompson Food Smartlist (recent entry):

Yoplait has stated that all new products as of Sept 12 2007 that are gluten-free are labeled gluten-free. If it does not say gluten-free it may have CC. Since Sept they have changed their formulas and mfg processes apparently and will label those that are gluten-free and also Cross Contanmination Free.

SO, buy only those that say gluten-free and discard those that do not.

<sigh...>

I just bought a bunch of Yoplait this weekend- I've been eating more of it lately because my guts have been "off". I now wonder if it was the yogurt giving me that feeling!

I checked my fridge yesterday and actually had two of the same flavor- one labeled gluten free, the other not. The un-labeled one has a later date on it.

And I'm assuming this applies to gogurt and smoothies too...? When I was shopping today, the only Yoplait products labeled gluten free were some of the thick & creamy and some of the originals. None of the "fun" things like whips or gogurt. :(

Yoplait is gluten free with the exception of the cookies and granola whether they are labled gluten free or not. If you read the ingredients, there will be no gluten listed.

Too much yogurt will give me bathroom issues, but it's not gluten related.

This is an email from Yoplait

Dear Valued Consumer:

Thank you for contacting Yoplait regarding gluten in Yoplait yogurt.

It is our goal to help our consumers determine whether or not they can include our products in their diet. To accurately accomplish this, we believe it is best to refer to the specific ingredients listed on each product package.

However, we do understand that ingredients can be confusing, so we want to assure you if the ingredient label does not list wheat, barley, rye, oats or gluten containing ingredients sourced from these grains, then the product would be gluten-free. Sources of gluten are listed on the label even if the source of gluten is part of another ingredient (such as flavoring or spice). Because ingredients may vary from one package to another due to product reformulation, you should use the product's ingredient label to provide you with current and accurate information.

Additional information regarding gluten may be obtained by contacting your health care professional or:

God, I love this forum. when ever I type into Google is this or that Glutenfree, I can be assured that Celiac.com always pops up and that I will get the right answer. I love you guys, it's so wonderful to see thast there is always somebody else who already aksed the question I was going too! I just bought Yoplait kids Banana for my son, but decided that today was the morning my 15 month old daughter was gonna get her first Yoghurt.due to Celaic she hasn't dealt with any milkproduct well at all, allways got sever stomachcramps, but she just started tolerating Mozzarella cheese, it might be time to see if she is able to take Yoghurt , now that she's been off of gluten for aobut 2 month

I just talked to Yoplait and she said that they dont say gluten free any more, but she said to look at the ingredients and look for wheat ect. There will be no hidden gluten in the ingredients. Just look for all the grains we cant eat. It mostly looks safe so enjoy

Don't be so quick to assume that since your stomach has been acting funky now that you're eating more yogurt that it's a gluten reaction. Yogurt is utilized to help bring good bacteria into your body to fight off the bad bacteria...that's why they make that digestive tract help yogurt now, because it's supposed to help get your body more regular. I can't eat a lot of yogurt because of a texture problem :) (same reason why I can't eat bananas...yuck!!) The yogurt might actually help you feel better in the long run :) ones your body gets used to the influx of good bacteria!!

Does anyone know if the new Dessert Selctions are gluten free like the strawberry chantilly and the raspberry crumble? Has anyone tried them? It does not indicate any gluten sources in the ingredients so I am guessing that it is gluten-free if they have said that they clearing identify gluten.

Hi Everyone,

I asked Yoplait my question about their Desert Selections such as Rasberry Crumble and for anyone who is interested, this was the response:

Dear Consumer:

We acknowledge receipt of your question concerning gluten, namely our Yoplait Source Dessert Selection yogurt, and would like to thank you for taking the time to contact us.

Please be advised that we carefully analyze all of our ingredients (presence of wheat, rye, barley, triticale, spelt, oats and malt) to ensure they do not contain gluten. The only Yoplait product containing gluten is our Yoplait Source Muesli Selection yogurt. This product is constituted of two separate components, which are a 130g yogurt container, manufactured and tightly sealed in our production plant, topped with a dome of crunchy cereals, sealed properly and provided by an independent supplier. The yogurt containers and dome of cereals are delivered in other premises for assembly purposes. Therefore, we can assure you that there are no cross-contamination risks with any other Yoplait products which can therefore be safely consumed by people with celiac disease.Consumer satisfaction is always high on our list of priorities.

Thank you for your interest and be assured that Yoplait is continuously working to be the first to offer consumers innovative products of the highest quality.

Sincerely,

Consumer Service

YOPLAIT

    • Hi, No, I do not have celiac  disease. I have an ankylosing spondylitis which is an auto-immune disease provoking an inflammation of the joints. Under the advice and supervision of my doctor and the professor at the hospital I follow a gluten free & casein free diet, which is extremely successful in preventing inflammatory events. And I've been doing so, strictly, for more than 6 years. So I'm not Celiac, but I can tell you that I react strongly every time I take gluten even in small amounts. Even soya sauce, which according to this website has an almost zero dose of gluten, is a lot too much for me. Nevertheless I allow myself to eat food which has been processed in a factory which processes gluten. To conclude, I would say that when you are travelling, especially in a country where celiac disease is scarcely known, you should be twice as careful as when you're going out at home. In the end you can never guarantee that the cook has cleaned his pan after using soya sauce and so on... You can only bet

    • No!  Once you fill the tub, if you sit in it for 3 minutes or you stay for 10...

    • Whether it is bona fide dermatitis herpetiformis, or severe eczema or hives or what have you, we all want to know how to stop the incessant itching.  Through all my research, the solution comes down to one thing: a good long soak in the tub-- with baking soda or Epsom salts or some kind of herbal tea, followed by a rub down in thick expensive lotion.  I don't know about you, but I was brought up to "get in, get done get out."  A long soak in the bath was a frivolous luxury, and a waste of time and hot water.  So now I'm having this awful breakout from forgetting to read a label and got wheated.  And every night I've been soaking in a baking soda bath to relieve the itching and aid my recovery.  And it's been hard! (But it's been very helpful too)  It has been hard to reconcile this "frivolous luxury and waste of time" as medically necessary!  Fortunately I've had no judging, and only support from my husband, who has had a similar upbringing.  Does anyone else struggle with this?

      I have celiac disease and have been gluten-free for almost 10 years.  I am extremely sensitive to gluten, noting that I react within 15 minutes of contact and in fact the doctor suspects that there may also be an actual wheat allergy at play but have never bothered to be tested since I avoid it like the plague!  I am curious to know if anyone else reacts to flax or inulin?  My symptoms with those two are almost identical to gluten so I have to really watch for that in gluten-free breads and baking and recently discovered after the fact that flax was in the juice I was drinking. I know that people with gluten issues can have other problems as well and in fact I also avoid milk products.  Even after 10 years, and although it has become a way of life, it's still frustrating to have to read every ingredient on every label.😞
