Thank you for posting this! It's good to know I can buy regular frosting now, instead of going through the hassle of making it! :D

Not to be a PITA but did you ask about barley malt in flavorings? The reason I ask is because she mentioned the top allergens and since barley malt is not considered an allergen. I would love it if they are gluten free as I really hate to make frosting.

No I did not ask specifically about malt.

I will grab a can tommorrow since I want to make chocolate cupcakes and give them a call. It likely is a safe product but I am so sensitive that I like to be sure.

Can I offer up my uber-easy chocolate frosting that is out of this world amazing (plus it doesn't have all the crap that canned frosting has in it):

2 c cream-heavy or whipping

2 c chocolate chips--you can use milk, semi-sweet, dark-whatever (white doesn't work as well)

microwave cream just until it starts to boil, dump in chocolate chips and let sit for 2 minutes. Whisk well and either dump over your cake (and serve warm-OMG delish) or put in fridge. Keeps for 2 weeks or so. If you refrigerate, you can just soften it up by popping it back in the microwave for a bit.

That sounds so good and so easy, thank you!!!! My Mom used to make frosting with just powdered sugar milk and vanilla but I can never get it to come out as good as hers did.

Thanks for posting this info. Pete.

I've been using the Duncan Hines Classic Chocolate and am grateful for an easy/tasty alternative for when I can't make my own homemade frosting. I tried one of the dedicated gluten gluten-free frostings and it was terrible.

Raven, let us know what they say about barley malt. My daughter is quite sensitive to CC and so far has not reacted to Duncan Hines at all, so I trust it. Of course, we must always re-read labels regularly for changes.

    • by the way, I do find the lab who does the gluten sensitive test Gluten Allergy IgE Test This test is used to determine if a person has an allergic reaction to gluten, a protein found in wheat, barley, and rye.  Roughly 1 in 30 adults and 1 in 40 children suffer from a Gluten Allergy.  An IgE test looks for antibodies which develop in a person who has a particular allergy.  Gluten Allergy can display symptoms similar to other conditions such as Celiac Disease.  Unlike an allergy, Celiac Disease can do permanent harm to the body if left untreated.  Allergy testing when a person is experiencing symptoms can help identify or rule out an allergy as the cause.

      Gluten Allergy is typically less severe than other Gluten related conditions like Celiac Disease.  People with Gluten Allergy will often experience abdominal discomfort, bloating, gas, constipation, or diarrhea when they eat products containing gluten.  These symptoms usually stop when a person cuts gluten out of their diet.

      A Gluten Allergy IgE test can be ordered to help determine if someone allergic to gluten.  This test can also be ordered when a person is testing for Celiac Disease and has had negative results on Celiac specific antibody tests.  An allergy test can also be ordered prior to Celiac testing to rule out Gluten Allergy as a likely cause for a person’s symptoms.
    • so does it mean a person who carry dq2 or dq8 gene will have high chance to develp celiac disease if they continue to eat gluten or some other stuff trigger it??      
    • I just wanted to share my experience. I started with the endoscopy because I was having symptoms of a hernia + I had a colonoscopy at the same time to test for Chron's. While getting the scope the doctor noticed damage of the small intestine and did biopsies and they came back positive for Celiac disease. We followed up with the necessary blood work to confirm and those all came back like yours, negative, however my genetic testing was positive. So although rare, it is possible to test negative on the blood work and still have damage and be a positive. I don't know why my blood work was off, but I am glad I had the scope first because I would have never known the damage I was doing if I relied solely on the blood work. 
    • You're welcome. Good that you're having the gene test as well. If you DO have the gene(s) then you realize one can present with celiac at any point in life -- any age -- so you would need to be tested like you were, every 2 years in the absence of symptoms. If one develops symptoms then they need to be tested right away instead of waiting for the 2 yr. mark. It's not common, but is possible to test negative on the blood and still have villi damage on endoscopic biopsy. So depending on the results of the gene test....... you might see if your doc will do a endoscopy for you OR you might be what they refer to as something like a pre-celiac where you're not testing positive yet but most likely will soon.
    • Just don't give up.  Good luck and best wishes to you.  Let me know how it's going for you.  Been there, done this.  It ain't fun.
