What ingredient is in sprinkles (like the multi colored one you'd find as icecream or cupcake, etc. topping) that is gluten? I glutened my dd today with no idea that there was gluten in sprinkles. I guess I can't take those things for granted.... Thanks!

Generally, nothing in sprinkles has gluten. Here is a typical ingredient list:

Sugar, corn starch, confectioner's glaze, Yellow #5 lake, Red #3 lake, Blue #1 lake, carnauba wax, red #40 lake, Yellow #6 lake, Blue #2 lake.

"Confectioner's glaze" is made from corn protein.

Some people are sensitive to those artificial colorings. Or, there may have been some other gluten source. But I doubt that the sprinkles had gluten in them.

From the few google searches I did it sure seemed like people believe they do so I assumed they did but I have had some trouble finding any ingredients that showed that. She definately had gluten poop and I don't know of anything else that she had that would have done that but who knows....

The sorbet she had I just looked up and it has some "natural flavors" and "modified food starch" so that could have gotten her too, depending is that right? I keep finding she is more and more sensitive as time goes by.

In the US the MFS would have to be declared if it was from wheat. Barley malt is ususually the culprit in natural flavors and does not need to be declared.

I've never seen sprinkles with gluten but I have seen sorbet that was made with glucose syrup (from wheat). There is always a chance of cross contamination though. So that could be a factor.

The sprinkles I have seen look gluten free but on the bottle they've said that they were processed in a facility that also processes wheat. I have only looked at the sprinkles though at WalMart, after seeing that I just haven't looked at other brands in other stores.
Does your daughter have problems with items that are processed in facilities that also process wheat?

Yes, she can be bothered by things that were processed ina facility..... So it looks like sprinkles and sorbet are out for us as a general rule :(

Thanks everyone for your thoughts!!

You could try to make sorbet yourself. I haven't tired yet but I want to. I have seen a lot of gluten free recipes online and in cookbooks for ice cream and sorbet. Below is a link of one recipe:
http://www.leaisglut...cream/#more-106

There are a lot of gluten free blogs out there with some really good recipes (some are hard and some are easy to make). Below is a link to one blog but on the side she has a list of Favorite Food Blogs:
http://www.gingerlem...l.blogspot.com/
A lot of the sites are nice because the person took pictures of the food, so you kind of know what it should look like before you make it ha. Maybe you can find something that would sub for the sorbet/sprinkle dessert?
If you like to cook... this site http://killthegluten.blogspot.com/ has some really easy/simple recipes =)
Good Luck
