Chocolate Chip Ice Cream
0

7 posts in this topic

Hi

I've checked the ingredients of my favourite Chocolate chip ice cream from Baskin Robbins and I think it's gluten free. These are the ingredients that I got from their website:

Ingredients: cream, nonfat milk, sugar, corn syrup, semi-sweet chocolate chips (sugar, chocolate liquor processed with alkali, butter oil, cocoa butter, soya lecithin), whey, natural and artificial vanilla flavor, cellulose gum, mono and diglycerides, guar gum, carrageenan, polysorbate 80, annatto color.

Just wondering if it's safe to eat? I've read previous threads on Baskin Robbins and understand that most of you avoid their ice creams as they do not guarantee being gluten free. But if their ingredients do not contain gluten, it should be okay to eat right? Or is there a risk of getting cross contaminated (even if I buy the pre-packed ones)?

Thanks!

I don't know either, but was going to post a similar question about ice cream too. Mine was Bryers, choc chip mint. Which everyone has told me is an OK ice cream to eat. When the ingredients say 'whey' in a dairy product, are we to assume that is is from the milk whey??

Whey is just part of whole milk. I worry about places like B R because piece of ice cream cones could be broken in the ice cream. Not sure where they pack the pre made containers. You might ask.

There may be risk of CC. Someone who knows will hopefully reply.

However, there's always the gluten-free, dairy-free products such as Purely Decadent and Coconut Bliss.

I have called several companies (including Bryers, Tillamook, Haagendaz) about the risk of CC in the non gluten containing ice creams. The answer I got from all of them was that they couldn't guarantee that there wouldn't be any CC, because all of the ice creams are produced on the same equipment.

Thanks for all your replies. So I guess the risk of cross contamination would be for any ice cream since the gluten free flavours would be packed/made in the same facility as the gluten flavours.

RiceGuy, the gluten free ice creams look great - too bad they aren't available where I stay:(

3 cheers for Purely Decadent and Coconut Bliss! I'm very dairy intolerant (it seems to have gotten worse over the past few months...). Those two brands are the only ones that work for me, and don't taste like ka-ka! Good luck! Read labels, and call and bug manufacturers! They love it when we do that! ;) I do it all the time! If I'm in a grocery store, odds are, I'm on my phone at least once calling "random company # 35" to verify their gluten-free status! :0)

    • Below is copied & pasted from this thread:   My celiac doctor is Dr. Syed Jafri, in Webster, TX (just south of Houston -- basically the Clear Lake City area), saved my LIFE.  I would recommend him to the whole, entire world.  I was desperately ill, and am still struggling, and he's a wonderful, sweet man who listens and is very proactive in helping you solve whatever problems you're having.  I wish all doctors were like him.  I have to fight and struggle with too many doctors to just listen to me and what I live with, day in and day out.  He's not like that.  Good luck to you.     There are recommendations on this thread too:  
    • I never worried about cross contamination because i was originally told i was just intolerant. after going gluten free i felt so much better up until this last march. dairy and fructose have been giving me problems but both lactose and fructose test came back negative.  this is what my gi doctor emailed me today 
    • Any place you know of to find more info? Seems like I am still in so much pain/bloat, I am not even sure if I would pick the right 5 foods!
    • Don't freak out worrying about other maladies yet. You would be absolutely amazed at the things that can/will resolve on the gluten free diet. Some take longer than others -- neurological seem to take the longest for most people but really, I guarantee, there will be things you had no idea or expectation of resolving will. There were tons for me and then there were things I sort of "woke up one day" & said, "hey, that's gone and that & that & that". Other, larger things had taken my attention so I hadn't paid attention to the smaller things until...... On the other hand, not everything is related to celiac but I bet you wouldn't find a handful of celiacs who didn't say something very similar to what I said above. Yes, thyroid problems are common with celiac but I'll also tell you there are/have been people on here who were hypothyroid before dx but after being gluten-free for a while they actually went back to normal thyroid numbers. My husband is one (yes, we both are celiac - it happens). He was on synthroid for 20 years or more. Guess what? He's not on it anymore. We've had his thyroid panel done several times since about a year gluten-free & he is no longer hypothyroid. 
    • Yes please, that'd be awesome Having a fun time trying to reply on my phone due to broken screen but will be back on tomorrow after results of doctor appointment to get to the bottom of why they've given me seemingly wrong advice re: next steps. Yup I'll admit to pity, anger, frustration and outright fear, been through the mill of emotions in this first week that's for sure. One thing before I go for that; back when I was self-diagnosing I wanted a full thyroid panel (T3, T4 etc.) and also ESR & CRP checks for vasculitis and similar maladies. Now it seems from my reading they can often follow celiac so my worry level of those has gone up a notch, more blood tests ahoy it seems? Main reason for worrying about those is the nearly constant tight / tender head I have at the moment. Top and sides of scalp. Could be the stress tensing the shoulders and occipital muscles at back of head but after the celiac diagnosis being missed I'm fearful of anything else being missed. Did anyone else have this tight head feeling at the start? Feels like the skin is being pulled inwards, sometimes goes down for a few minutes here and there and gets worse when sitting I think. I see the term "brain fog" a lot but luckily don't seem to have too much of that at present, this is more a physical sensation.
