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)

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)
