Milk Duds

Hershey's has one of the least helpful websites I've ever visited! Anyone know if milk duds are gluten-free or not? Their ingredients look okay...but...(my son has a box and is bugging me this morning rather than yesterday when consumer affairs might have been open. Aargh!)

Hershey's is actually a wonderful company. All you have to do is read the label. Things are not hidden, if it comes from a top allergen it will be listed as such.

FYI-

I've found that Hershey's, Kraft, and Oscar Meyer have said that they list "top allergens" clearly on their products (according to their websites and to phone-reps. that I've talked with recently). -Julie

Good luck! B);):)

Actually, all of the companies mentioned here don't just list top allergens, they list any gluten. BTW, Oscar Meyer is a part of Kraft.

Here is a list of companies or brands (some are subsidiaries of the bigger companies) that list gluten or wheat. On the bigger companies, like Kraft, Unilever, General Mills, or Conagra, go to their web site to see all their brands. There are more than this, but I've checked these myself:

Aunt Nelly's

Balance

Baskin Robbins

Ben & Jerry

Betty Crocker

Blue Bunny

Butterball

Breyers

Campbells

Cascadian Farms

Celestial Seasonings

ConAgra *lists wheat only

Country Crock

Edy's

General Mills

Good Humor

Green Giant

Hellman's

Hershey

Hormel

Hungry Jack

Jiffy

Knorr

Kozy Shack

Kraft

Libby's

Lipton

Martha White

McCormick

Nabisco

Nestle

Old El Paso

Ortega

Pillsbury

Popsicle

Post

Progresso

Russell Stover

Seneca Foods

Smucker

Stokely's

Sunny Delight

T Marzetti

Tyson

Unilever

Wishbone

Hey Richard-

Nice list! Oscar Meyor/Kraft are the same (good call, my mistake)...I was just sitting here at work yesterday and was racking my brain for companies/products that I remembered clearly listing gluten on the labels. (Especially products that a child might beg for or enjoy eating...i.e. candy and hotdogs) :P;)

Hey Freya...

looks like you've got plenty of options...and a happy 10 year old! ;)B)

Take Care all-

Enjoy the holidays

-Julie :)

Very good list indeed. I've tried to buy more from the companies that list allergens whenever given a choice. But i was pretty dismayed a few wks ago when i found a Kraft product w/ an obvious gluten source and no allergen warning on the pkg. It was Louis Rich brand pre-cooked seasoned chickenstrips. I took a picture w/ my Palm but it didn't come out clear enough to read the details, unfortunately.

I remember which store and tho it isn't close i go by there occassionally so maybe i'll go look again and write down the info instead of relying on a camera in a device for which taking pics isn't its primary function.

I'm not sure that Kraft does allergen warnings, at least I don't remember them doing it. What they do is what you saw -- they clearly list gluten in the ingredients.

    • Gluten ataxia...?
      I was explaining that some people have other trouble that is immune related and caused by eating gluten, but doesn't effect the gut in a noticeable way. According to the paper that I quoted there are some people which have different types of brain problems but don't have inflammation when tested by a biopsy.  The author used the term "non-Celiac gluten sensitivity" to refer to anyone who has any brain trouble that can be traced to gluten but without obvious gut inflammation.  There are a lot of different possible ways gluten can effect the brain some may not be related to the gut.  It could still be an immune system problem.  Normally "non-Celiac gluten sensitivity" refers to just a food intolerance.  Withdrawal symptoms are not normal and could be indicative of an immune system response of some sort, but I don't know for sure.

      Hi Richie I've put the above in quotes as you have described in the first and second sentence how I felt six months prior to my DX.   In my own case, in the end I concluded it was anxiety after consulting Dr Google!  It was such an alien feeling to me, I couldn't even think what it was, particularly as life was pretty good at the time.  Anxiety is a problem for a lot of celiacs prior to diagnosis, and often after glutening after going gluten-free. You mention breathlessness, this of course can be for reasons such as anaemia (again a common celiac problem, I had this prior to DX) but of course also can arise if you are anxious.   Re 'gluten free' - Flowerqueen is right, from what I have read on this forum some people really do seem to react with less than 20ppm.    But perhaps some other things to consider...  could there be something wrong with the batch you have consumed?  Might it be worth contacting the manufacturers?   That said, you could , as Flowerqueen suggests, have a problem with another ingredient, in the product or something else you consumed. In the past I have had a terrible reaction - fever, trembling, diarrhea, stomach cramps that lasted up to three hours the last three times I ate..... broccoli, of all things.    Who would have thought that possible?  I have often thought I should try it again, just to be sure it was the broccoli, as it is a 'super food' that I ought to have in my diet, that I like very much, but the thought of having such a reaction again has put me off. I do hope you will find some answers soon.

      Hi Richie,  I've not heard of this drink before, as I live in the UK, but any drink made from barley is something you should avoid.  There's a brand in the UK that makes lemon and barley water and orange and barley water and Coeliac UK say it is not safe for people with Coeliac disease.  (Our labelling laws in the UK changed a couple of years ago).  You say the drink you had was under 20 ppm, which is acceptable (usually) for coeliacs, but a lot of people are super-sensitive to gluten even in very small amounts.  I recently had a similar problem with something which was supposed to be okay for coeliacs, but when I checked the website of the product, for all it said there were no gluten containing ingredients, it was produced in an area where gluten was present, which was enough to put me off and must admit, the symptoms you describe sound very much like I experienced at the time.  (Personally I'd be avoiding that particular drink like the plague from now on). One other thing though,  have you checked the ingredients to see if there could be anything else in it which you may be intolerant to?

      Hello! I am new to this Celiac website... Is there anyone out there with Celiac AND extensive food allergies? My allergies include shellfish, dairy, eggs, cantaloupe, kiwi, mango, nuts, oranges, red dye, and more I can't think of. I went to the allergist about a year ago to see why I wasn't feeling well, and once everything was eliminated, I still didn't feel well. We did more testing to find out I had celiac as well as allergies to cattle as well as rye grass (I live on a farm basically). This was back in January 2016. I recently had my endoscopy with the gastroenterologist a week ago. I have no idea what to do or what to eat... So fish and potatoes for me!

      Week 4 of the gluten challenge- wheat cereal every morning, regular bread every day, and wheat tortillas for my lunch wraps. Right now, body aches that seem exercise related (weight lifting and running), even though I am doing the same intensity of weight lifting and running I've always done.  Just a few more weeks until my blood test. Counting down the days.
