Does anyone know if Hersheys or Smuckers Caramel Dessert Toppings are Gluten Free? I emailed Smuckers and never heard back and haven't found either of them listed in my shopping guide......I thought I would try here! Thanks!

Generally, they do not contain gluten.....what does the label say? Shopping guides are a poor resource because things change so much and many are not current by the time they are published. I am not familiar with these brands of toppings but the ones I have bought were gluten-free. Is there an ingredient you are worried about?

I actually don't have one on hand to look at (the label) I remember trying them last year thinking they were ok, but then started having stomach issues. I have since discovered that my stomach issues were related to something else and wanted to try them again. You mentioned buying them yourself? Do you use another brand?
Thanks again.

Never found one that isn't gluten-free. If it doesn't list wheat or malt, it's almost certainly gluten-free.

I cannot remember the brand name of the one I bought but it was sold in Whole Foods market, if that's any help. They have lots of gluten-free options so I do my food shopping there. Funny, I never look at brand names anymore as I concentrate on label reading for ingredients! :lol:

Gemini, shopping guides are a great resource. For instance Gluten free grocery shopping guide by Matison & Matison is wonderful and the website has a update on any things that change gluten contents. Just saying

I just contacted Smuckers regarding their fat Free Caramel flavored topping and was told that it does contain barley. see response below:

Thank you for your inquiry regarding the presence of gluten in one of our Smucker's® products. For over 110 years, providing our customers and consumers with the highest quality products has been of paramount importance to The J.M. Smucker Company. Quality products begin with quality ingredients and we employ comprehensive procurement procedures to ensure our products contain only the finest ingredients from reputable suppliers.
The product for which you have requested information, Smucker's® Caramel Flavored Topping, contains gluten from barley.
It is important to note that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has not yet defined the term “gluten-free” or established rules for making a “gluten-free” claim on a food product. However, “gluten-free” claims are permitted and each manufacturer is responsible for determining whether or not its products are “gluten-free”.
The J.M. Smucker Company has established the following stringent criteria based on the FDA’s proposed rules for making “gluten-free” claims.
• Ingredient Screening - The ingredient cannot contain gluten sources such as wheat, rye, barley or their derivatives or hybrids. We also review for the presence of oats.
• Testing - While there is currently not a commercially available test to detect the presence of oats, the product must be tested to verify that it contains less than 20 parts per million of gluten.
• Manufacturing Procedures - In addition, facilities that manufacture verified “gluten-free” products must have a comprehensive gluten management program. All equipment used in the manufacture of products containing any gluten or oat source must be thoroughly cleaned prior to producing a product that is “gluten-free”. These procedures must be validated and inspected after each clean-up.
We would like to thank you for your inquiry regarding this product. If you have any further questions, please feel free to contact us at 888-550-9555.
Sincerely,
