Is Malt Powder Gluten Free?
Posted 19 April 2010 - 05:17 PM
Just found out to my dismay that Bryer's Carbsmart Fudge Bars
contain Malt Powder.
Missed it on earlier checks.
Good luck trying to find it on a Unilever site.
They do claim to list gluten stuff but one would expect the
usual wheat,rye,oats,etc at the bottom-this is just another
ingredient in the list.
Have had no reactions.
BTW,have an extra box,free to a good home <G>.
Thanks in advance...ron

I LOVE malt, so this is pretty exciting. I'm going to have to find some rice-based malt to load up on!

Can you tell me if Breyer's Carbsmart Fudge Bars are gluten free?
We recommend consumers read the label each time before buying our product. If gluten is present, it is clearly listed in plain language on the ingredient label (i.e., wheat flour, rye, barley, oats, and malt). Malt is a barley based ingredient.
We do not publish a list of gluten-free flavors.
That's an important piece of info. To me it implies Unilever is now clumping malt directly into the wheat, rye, barley, oats category. So watch your malt on Unilever and don't eat those fudge bars!!

That said, I have never seen malt from rice in any product, I would love to know what had rice malt in it? That sounds yummy.

recovering from the fudge bars.
Special thanks to Celiacmom for finding the info on their website.
I was unable to find a Unilever-Breyers FAQ,phone number
and my letter to them was returned today as undeliverable
(sent to adr on box).
Have never encountered a company who just did not wish to
hear from their customers.
Doubt if I will ever try Breyers again...rtc
