you have to read the ingredients. Different recipes and different brands have different answers.

Edys/Dreyers ice cream has a list of which ice creams have gluten & its the ones with the obvious ingredients like cookie dough or brownie pieces. I have found from reading ice cream containers that most seems to be gluten-free, especially the simple flavors. Probably wouldn't get it any where they scoop it out as cones tend to break & fall in. They only rinse the scoopers off between scoopings.

There really are a lot of calories out there that we can still consume. ;)

YES TONS of Ice cream is gluten-free. You can eat the soft serve at Dairy Queen like the peanut buster parfait (my favorite) or flavors at Baskin Robbins and Ben and Jerry's! Make sure if it is scooped ice cream they use a clean scooper and change their gloves, avoid machines that mix multiple items like (blizzard machines). You have to look up the flavors and brands but even generics have gluten-free options like Publix brand, Safeway, and Lucerne. Before you go shopping or eating check websites and print out flavors that are gluten free! Another favorite of mine is Edy'd Fun Flavors Reese's Peanut Butter CUP!!!

I found that even gluten free ice cream makes me sick. I think it is the gar gum. I can eat soft ice cream though at stands without getting ill. Just watch what you put on it and if you get a blizzard like treat have them whip the mixer arm off because the person before you may have had something gluteny in their treat. I leave a tip so far no one has complained.

I found a good home ice cream replacement is italian ice.

Usually, but you have to read labels. Brownie, cookie, cheesecake, and cookie dough flavors usually have wheat in them. Chocolate chips and fudge are usually OK.

I agree that Breyer's is really good about labeling and the labels are pretty simple too. I also eat some of the Ben & Jerry's, Haagen-Dazs, and Safeway flavors.

    • Back to Dr. Google for you!   A histamine intolerance is not a true IGE mediated allergic reaction.  Read up!  It does often (like many intolerances) occur with celiac disease because the small intestine is damaged.  It can resolve once the gut has healed.   celiac disease antibodies can take time to build up (in your blood stream for the test or skin).   That's why the gluten challenge is 8 to 12 weeks.  In the case of DH, you can eat something and days or weeks later, the DH rash will appear and you'll go crazy trying to figure out when you got "glutened" (but don't take any serious gluten advice from me because I don't have it).   You can have several things wrong with you and a wheat allergy and celiac disease can occur at the same time.  Add on something like Mast Cell Activation, Autoimmune Hives, Histamine Intolerance.......the list can be endless (at least that is how some of us feel.)  Of course your high school could be making you ill.  Think of all that stress!  Who knows what lurks in your building, but let's face it, you ate some gluten.  Best of luck to you on your challenge!  
    • Hi, I need help understanding these results please. Can anyone help me.  DQ2.5 (HLA1*05 DQB1*0201 AND OTHER NON-RISK ALLELES CATEGORY# 4 DQ GENOTYPE: DQ2 HETEROZYGEOUS INCREASED RISK: 10X RELATIVE RISK: HIGH My doctor is out on vacation from now until the end of August and I couldn't get an appointment until the end of September.  
    • Ugh!  So, you have early stages of celiac disease and that was after being gluten light?  It is a shame that your doctor is not comfortable about giving you a formal diagnosis because you don't have enough damage!  Time for a new GI.  You can also as for another pathologist to read your biopsies, but seriously....... Have a conversation with your current doctor about the reasons why he is hesitating.  He would rather you continue to become more ill or improve your health?   Are you going to be scarred for life with a celiac disease diagnosis? Maybe he is one of those people who think it is impossible to live with wheat, rye or barley!   I don't get it! 
    • Thanks for the comments. With Dr. Google, I have seen mast cell disorder pop up.  It seems like I need to eliminate some basics before heading in that direction. So, another question...is it possible that symptoms of celiac need time to "build up" over time? For instance,  I started reintroducing gluten and coffee last week to prepare for my GI appt.  However, nothing really seemed to happen except a little knee crankyness (which I can easily attribute to hiking).  Yet, yesterday I had a huge bagel at work, had itchy forearms, and then had two huge hives appear later.  Today, I had another bagel and in a few hours I had a few red fingers that were itchy and numb feeling in the tips.   I know histamine intolerance is a possibility, but wouldn't that show up as an extremely large hive with my allergy skin test? Also, I had to go into work today and yesterday. I'm wondering if that environment could contribute to the issue (I'm a high school teacher).
