Hello everyone,

I am having the worst craving for "Rice Crispy bars" and have been on the mad search for marshmallows. I just can't seem to find any that happen to be gluten-free. :( Does anyone know of such a thing or a good substitute?

Also, I was told that I should change my toothpaste due to the fact that it possibly contains gluten, can you tell me what you use (gluten-free)?

Thank you for any help you can give!!!!!

I've never found a marhsmallow with gluten. Ever. With the Kraft marshmallow all you have to do is read the ingredients as they will clearly list any gluten.

In more than three years I've found exactly one toothpaste with gluten -- I think it was Sensodyne (I know it was one for people with sensitive teeth). Crest, Arm and Hammer, Colgate -- all gluten-free.

Hey Richard, I agree on the Marshmallow front, however I do use Sensodyne every day and don't have any problems. It may be a difference between their paste and gel however, or even Canada and US having different manufacturers?? I don't like the paste and have not used it since being gluten-free, I'm strictly a Gel type of girl! :D I did contact Sensodyne when I went gluten-free and they said that the products did not contain gluten but they could not guarantee it since they bought their ingredients from other places... vague I know, but pretty standard reply I find! :blink:
Is there another "sensitive" teeth paste that is confirmed gluten-free?

Thnks Richard!

Ok, I have to admit...The bag of marshmallows that I buy are store brand and they contain modified food starch. I just assumed that if the store brand did, they all did. :(

Geez, I remember my parents telling me as a kid..."whenever you assume things you make an *** out of you and me". lol They were right, I feel silly that I did not even bother to check the other brands.

I do use Crest, so I am ok. Thanks agaian :D

You do need to check MFS but in most cases it's gluten-free.

I might have been wrong about the Sensodyne or perhaps I was just remembering their CYA statement.

I make rice krispy treats with Kraft marshmallows and a gluten free rice cereal. You do need to check with MFS though but Kraft does not hide anything so I use their products a lot.They taste really good...you should make your own if you have a craving for it .:D

What rice cereal do you use for your rice crispy treats. I noticed Kelloggs Rice Krispies has malt falovoring in it.

I use a brand called Erewhon(manufactured by US Mills). I got it at a health food store. It says gluten free crispy brown rice whole grain cereal. It is also organic.

This is a link to their site with gluten free cereals they have. :D

Tammy, what is your location? Nature Path's rice cereal says Gluten Free right on the box and is found in most stores in Western Canada. I believe it's made in the West of the U.S. It makes yummy bars :D

Are the Nature's Path rice crispies more like the regular rice crispies? The Erewhon were a little too different when we first tried them for my kids to accept them (though they'd probably like them now.) Just wondering before I go and buy another box of cereal (so many rejects! :( )

They are different when they are by themselves. I don't know if I'm used to it but when I make rice krispy treats they taste pretty normal. My relatives who are not celiac have these rice krispies too and don't even know the difference. Envirokidz has a lot of gluten free cereals that are good...haven't tried natures path but they sound like something that I might like to try.

They are a little different. A little more bland. Unfotunately it seems to be the malt flavouring that makes them nice and crisp. But when they are done in the bars it does make them pretty close.

Just got a thought... would it help if before the gluten-free rice crispies are made into marshmallow bars, they are lightly toasted in the oven to make them more crispy for the receipe?

Husband has Celiac Disease and
Husband misdiagnosed for 27 yrs -
The misdiagnosis was: IBS or colitis
Mis-diagnosed from 1977 to 2003 by various gastros including one of the largest,
most prestigious medical groups in northern NJ which constantly advertises themselves as
being the "best." This GI told him it was "all in his head."
Serious Depressive state ensued
Finally Diagnosed with celiac disease in 2003
Other food sensitivities: almost all fruits, vegetables, spices, eggs, nuts, yeast, fried foods, roughage, soy.
Needs to gain back at least 25 lbs. of the 40 lbs pounds he lost - lost a great amout of body fat and muscle
Developed neuropathy in 2005
Now has lymphadema 2006
It is my opinion that his subsequent disorders could have been avoided had he been diagnosed sooner by any of the dozen or so doctors he saw between 1977 to 2003

Hey Sarah,

I found some marshmallows on the glutenfree list for the USA. The brands are:

- Campfire marshmallows
- Fireside marshmallows - Walgreens Drugstore brand
- Jet Puffed
- Peeps
- SAFEWAY

Oh, and I just found Hain Kidz Marshmallow Crisp Bars: regular and chocolate chip are gluten-free. I don't know, if that's what you're looking for.

Hugs, Stef
