Kraft Marshmallows

12 posts in this topic

I was wondering if Kraft Marshmallows are gluten free. My son got extremely hyper after eating them. He only does that when he has been glutened.

Just went and looked at the bag I have. The first 3 ingredients are sugar, sugar and another sugar. Kraft lists at the end of the ingredients any gluten including barley. They have nothing listed. However, my half open pack is like full of gluten because the kids were making some mores with real Graham crackers. I'm sure they are full of little crumbs. This keeps me out of them :)

Janet - if mine were not crumb free, I would have eaten them. I think this will be my new diet strategy.

Could it be the sugar hit that is responsible for the hyperactivity?

Another possibility.....it may be the artificial food dye. My son gets extremely hyper within a short while of consuming anything made with it. He's been artificial dye free for almost a year now. He was a completely different little boy from day 1 of being dye-free. He's 7 now.

Isn't it outrageous that they have toput blue dye in marshmallows?

The question would then be . . . Piglips ( :lol: like the screen name), does your son react to other foods with dye in a similar manner?

He doesn't eat much junkfood so I'm not sure. I think I'll try keeping a food journal to see if he reacts to anything else. Oh and my screenname is a childhood nickname! :o)

Acid reflux is one of my major issues with gluten... I consistently have acid reflux with Kraft marshmallows... Not sure what "modified cornstarch or natural & artificial flavoring" consists of...

Even tho this thread is over 3 years old, Kraft marshmallows are still gluten-free. Kraft has a good policy about listing items made from any gluten - not just the federally mandated wheat, but also barley ( can't imagine rye is in much but bread)

    • Biopsy confirmed?
      Thanks for the replies. I have been trying since Friday tohave my results emailed to me and I am still waiting. I've rung four times now and each time they say they are going to email them. I will post them once I receive them :-) I have a feeling that the test I had in 2014 was just a screening test as it was six months or so before my endoscopy. I am assuming this one would be the full testing but you never know. He didn't really give me information just that he was ordering a blood test for Celiac and an ultrasound on my gallbladder and I didn't know what questions to ask. He read the histology report to me but that was like a different language lol and there were a few little things that he mentioned like duodenum cells in stomach(?), still the severe reflux even though I am on two lots of medications, Barretts unchanged and melanin throughout my colon - which he said was due to the overuse of laxatives ... I've never had laxatives and of course the lymphocytes in the duodenum but I can't remember if he said there was damage to the villi!   Anyway, fingers crossed the elusive email comes through soon!  Thanks for humouring my lack of knowledge and supporting me through my impatience this week - I only have a small time frame where my husband is home and I want answers so I can get organised before he leaves xxx
    • amalgam dental fillings - remove or not?
      My dentist removed mine as he discovered problems with them.  He used a rubber dam to be sure no mercury would be lost down my throat.  When I had just a couple Amalgams left, he decided to remove them .  He felt they likely had problems he couldn't see yet, as the other old fillings all had  decay. As he worked, those two were also having decay.  The deal was that insurance would cover the replacements IF the fillings were bad, but if there was no noted problem, they would not cover it.  I would consider having these removed by a dentist trained in using the rubber dam IF I were having health trouble that might be related to them.
    • Menstrual Pads for those with DH
      I use to react possibly because of the plastic, I don't really know why.  I use naturo-care which is made from bamboo fiber.  I don't know what the price per pad is. 
    • Lots of symptoms and just got a rash but is it DH?
      Forgot to mention - I've also been very tired these past 2 weeks.  Pretty much sleep, eat,  and sometimes go to work if I'm up for it.  I also lost 6lbs since December when my symptoms started.  I'm 5'9 and usually 128. 
    • Lots of symptoms and just got a rash but is it DH?
      Hi   So now I'm 95% sure I have celiacs.  I've been going through so much pain and sickness for the last 3 months.... Feeling like I'll never get better.  I'm a 25 year old otherwise healthy,  active female.  I finally had a colonoscopy Thurs. Waiting on results.  My GI wants to rule out crohns.  I have yet to talk to him about celiacs.    I have a rash on inner thighs by vagina and goes around to butt,  slightly itchy,  burns,  some look like pimples, some red dots,  almost perfectly symmetrical.  Other current symptoms - alternating constipation/diarrhea with black specs,  neck pain like whiplash,  ears constantly popping/clogged (about a year) ,  vision flickering like I'm blinking but not - multiple times an hour,  left knee pain when pops,  low platelets (128), nausea/stomach pain after eating certain foods usually vomit, sharp pain bellow belly belly button &  to the left, pins and needles in legs/arms when sitting multiple times a week,  bright red dots like cherry angomas,  confusion with thoughts.  Thanks for your input

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
