Sams Club Soft Serve Ice Cream Gluten Free?
0

8 posts in this topic

Hello, I was wondering if anyone can tell me if the soft serve vanilla ice cream, that you can get at the Sams Clubs snack bar, is gluten free? I did eat, about 1/4 of one, and it was really thick, so I stopped, just to be safe, and sure enough, stomach issues. Could it have been from that?

I don't know if it has gluten in it. Could it have been the dairy in it that gave you issues? That happens to me sometimes.

Hi! it could have been, although sometimes I can eat a small amount of dairy and be ok, I can eat yogurts, but I was really curous about the ice cream. I thought I read somewhere that Dairy Queen has gluten, so I thought that was interesting....Im gonna call Sams and ask them, hopefully they will know what Im talking about!

For some reason I can eat yogurt and some cheeses with no problem. I cannot drink regular milk. I have to drink the Lactaid kind. Also, if I do eat ice cream which is rare, I take a lactaid pill before. I don't know why some dairy gets me and some doesn't. For me, it's trial and error to see what works.

Probably depends on the lactose content . . . milk has more than cheese . . . yogurt can be lower or higher but the "active cultures" can help you out. Here is a table just for a little info:

http://www.nationaldairycouncil.org/NR/rdo...6/0/TABLE10.pdf

When my daughter had her endoscopy, I asked if they could tell if she was lactose intolerant. They measured the amount of lactase (the enzyme that processes the latose in milk) she was producing. She had a low reading (based on the "normal" scale) but she was still producing it. She was like you. If she sat down and drank milk, she drank the Lactaid kind or she took a chewable lactaid tablet (which is just providing the lactase enzyme that the body is no longer making). If she was just having a bit of cheese, we didn't worry about it. After a couple of months gluten free, she didn't need to supplement anymore.

Thanks for the info. I never really thought about how each product would have a different lactose level. Unfortunately, I still need the lactaid. But, I'm so much better than before!

      Hi Chris, haven't had a chance to read the whole conversation but regarding dairy, if you are suspicious of something, drop it for some time and see. You are still healing so maybe dairy is bothering you now. Also look at the nightshades, corn, dairy, soy, and eggs. I had a horrible time last year. I had muscle twitches, brain fog, pain, was tired,etc. I searched online and decided to drop all of those things I mentioned above. I am not sure what bothered me since I dropped them all at once but i slowly began feeling better. Now, i reintroduced eggs again and sometimes have lactose free milk with my coffee. I recommend eating salmon, tuna, bone broth soups, using olive oil and coconut oil and not eating much or not at all processed food even if it is marked gluten free.
    • Weird things people have said
      I've had people say strange things about celiac to me lately... Like someone said, "Oh I'm just a mild celiac so I don't have to worry about cross-contamination." And then someone else said that they're celiac but things have calmed down now so they can have a bit of gluten here and there. And I told my doctor that back in 2014 I thought I had been gluten free but I actually wasn't because I had been repeatedly glutening myself with an old colander. And he just looked at me like I was insane, like a colander?? Sure... I'm not crazy, right? Even if you have no symptoms you have to avoid cross-contamination because you can be doing damage internally right? You can never have 'just a bit'. And a colander is a big source of cross-contamination right?? I know all this but why do these other people not? Why does my doctor not know? So confusing and spreading misinformation... And then they look at me like *I'M* crazy.

      Look up FODMAPS.   That might clarify things for you.  There really are a lot of diet recommendations so make sure you bring a list of questions regarding foods to your doctor's  and dietician's appointments.

      Thank you for sharing those web sites. I will look at them. We have been gluten free since December so it's been a while. Once, he had a gluten free beer, the kind that they take the gluten out, and his legs felt very heavy and had a more difficult time walking. I really don't want to experiment.  Although I am very careful about what we eat, I am concerned that some of our medication could contain gluten. Is there any easier way to tell if medication has gluten. I did find a website which listed drugs and known gluten but every drug was on it or was determined to be gluten free
    • fructose malabsorption and gluten intolerant
      I don't have celiac but doctors or amazed I don't so they told me to fallow the gluten-free diet like I have it... any way I was wondering if one can have corn, corn starch if they have fructose malabsorption. I am so confused on what I can and can't have.. i have an appt next week hopefully with a dietitian... also can you have sugar free stuff since it's not sugar.. I'm reading online and I'm getting a bunch of mixed info on both.

      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.
