The m&m's bag has dextrin on it. Does anyone know if this is wheat or corn?

Yep...M&M's are fine...their dextrin is not a concern. As Jessica said..the only ones that are not gluten free are the crispy ones :D

the dextin is corn. M&M's are a great gluten-free treat! (except for the crispy ones of course!)

What do you mean by "crispy" m&ms? In canada we only have plain and the ones with peanuts.

-amenorhea (all my life)
-high prolactin levels
-major bloating ("Are you pregnant?")
-swollen ankles
-possible DH: had the rash on my elbows and scalp (gone now)
-joint pain
-childhood arthritis
-all dairy allergy
-dry skin
-fat in stool sample (no connection was made at the time...I was being tested for something else...When the doctor told me of the fat I replied by saying: "I eat alot of olive oil". DUH!!!!)
-mother is allergic to wheat
-ravenous appetite: I eat for 5 people
-light coloured stool
-pass stool 7 times a day sometimes
-hemorrhoids
-get the hiccups alot (not sure if this is related)
-some reflux

I'm sure there are more that I don't recall at the moment. SIGH.

At least in the US, there is a blue bag that says Crispy on it...it's not gluten-free. The yellow one with peanuts is gluten-free as is the original brown bag.

Yes, they're gluten-free. And they're a division of Hershey's so they should list gluten clearly.

This is my first post; sorry if it comes out looking funny or something. Also, I realize this is an old post. I just read what you said about Reese's peanut butter cups being gluten free... as far as I know that is acurate and I have been eating them just as much as I always have. But beware of the Reese's peanut butter egg things that are wrapped in foil!! They have wheat flour. I was surprised when I read the ingredients, but they are not the same as the cups.

Yes, this is a very old thread. And I don't think MARS even makes the crispy M&Ms anymore? I sure have not seen them around.
