Is There Such Thing As A Gf Marshmallow?
0

25 posts in this topic

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?

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

Glenny's makes Rice Crispy like bars that are good. Both plain and chocolate. Daughter liked the plain better. Not good if you have a nut allergy though due to cross contamination. Alas, she does have a nut allergy so can't have them.

Hmmm, GLUTEN MARSHMELLOW?

I didn't realise they have gluten in them. I thought they are pretty much gluten free!

That's why I've been thinking of indulging on them today lol.

Most sweets are gluten free.

Like Haribo jellies according to their labels are suitable for vegans and vegetarians.

Jelly beans are the same!! One of the main reasons' I've fallen in LOVE with them lately.

Plus since they come in various flavours, I get to taste all the other things I can not have lol.

Or other junk sweets like flying saucers and stuff like that are usually gluten free.

Wine gums, etc.

If you have a thing for chocolates, most dark chocs are suitable for vegans too.

Green&Black's small dark choc's vegan & vegeterian friendly + gluten free

but then the bigger one has whole milk powder in it so you still have to go through the ingredients lists.

But then Lindt big chunk 'may' contain gluten but I find them alright.

Hope this helps.

On the toothpaste front:

As far as I can gather from my experiences w/ Sensodyne, calling them, and what people have posted here, they *used* to use an ingredient that could contain gluten. Not a CYA statement, but rather a rotating, "where can we get this cheapest" ingredient that meant the produce really did have *trace* amounts of gluten in it from time to time. This was something like five years ago? (My memory isn't precise on this - it could have been seven for all I remember. Suffice it to say, it was a *number* of years ago.)

Since then, however, they have changed their sources and now - if I recall what someone wrote here about calling them - really do have only gluten free ingredients.

Of course, I just use Crest's sensitivity toothpaste. 'Cause I like it. :P

    • Most New Celiac Patients Show Normal Bone Density
      Some doctors recommend that patients with newly diagnosed celiac disease get scanned for bone density. Several researchers recently set out to assess the bone density results in a cohort of patients with celiac disease. View the full article
    • Kidney disease question
      Hi all,   I don't know whether kidney disease is celiac related or not but hopefully someone here can advise.
      I recently had a general blood test as I'd been feeling unwell. I think I've been glutened tbh but I also felt lethargic and out of sorts. I asked for thyroid and other levels to be checked. Frustratingly they didnt run the TTG - something I'm really down about. Anyway, The doctor looked at my test results and told me (via the receptionist) there was nothing to worry about. Given past experiences I requested a paper copy of the results and I found the following under the renal profile section:

      Renal profile 142 (135-145)
      Serum Sodium 4.7 (3.5 5.3)
      Serum potassium 5.5 (2.5 - 7.5)
      Serum urea 93 (62 - 120)
      Serum creatinine 93 (62 - 120)
      GFR 77ml/min/1.73m^2 - STAGE 2: CKD only if other evidence of renal damage

      The doctor is presumably happy with this but I'm a little concerned. Should I ask for a doctors appointment and perhaps a urine test? Is the GFR result on its own not sufficient reason to investigate further? 
      Many thanks for any advice you can offer

      Matt 
    • Test Results
      Thank you, guys. I will let you know how it goes sometime after 8 a.m. on Tuesday morning. 
    • New to this gluten-free life
      This site has a lot of good info.  And you can get a free " care package"  which is fun. http://www.cureceliacdisease.org   this thread has some useful info -       
    • New to this gluten-free life
      So I just got diagnosed with celiacs and I felt like after all the testing and stuff I would finally get the information my fiancé and I so badly needed about what is wrong with me, but the doctor came in the room at our appt and spent about 15 minutes with us talking a little bit about cross contamination, then said I need to avoid gluten like i would arsenic then sent us on our way! So I guess I am looking for some good tips and information about what is really wrong with me! I know own it's an auto immune disease. I just feel scares because I am so uneducated about it and it's such a big change. I just want to know what to do and do it right so I feel better!

      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.
