Colorings, Red #40, Yellow #5

After being diagnosed a few weeks back, and getting advice from others and my father who is gluten intolerant. I do get conflicting views of what is good or bad.

One of the ingriediants my Dad had mentioned to stay away from seems to be in LOTS and LOTS of things, especially candy. He had said he remeber that Red #40, and Yellow #5 both could contain gluten. But now he doesn't remeber where that was, and I haven't been able to find much reference to it on the web.

Does anyone know, is Red #40 and Yellow #5 ok? I'm thinking it could be one of those "depends" cases. As I see Gobstoppers and Nerds both have the above ingrediants, but Wonka phone support says they are both gluten free.

I don't think you'll find that either one of these dyes ever has gluten. I've never found an artificial color with gluten.

Many ingredients that you are told to be careful about are actually always or nearly always gluten-free.

Both of those candies are gluten free. 99.9% of the time these flavorings are gluten free but you still have to check when you see that unless it is a brand that will not hide anything, like Kraft.

I forgot what company it was, but I remember reading that they put gluten in a few of their colorings. You just have to be careful.

but Wonka phone support says they are both gluten free.
If the info is fairly recent then I don't think there would be any problem eating those :D Enjoy.

article Gluten-Free Candy, as of October 2011 on about.com listed:

The following Nestle candy products are NOT gluten-free:

Wonka Nerds

Everlasting Gobstopper

now i don't know what to believe. i talked to someone who studied gluten free at college and he said that if it doesn't' say Gluten free on the package it probably has gluten. even lunch meats have gluten. So far i only know of Boar's Head meats that are gluten free

Welcome to the board. You are replying to a very old thread and things do change. If you have doubt about a product call the company directly. There are many lunch meats that are safe. Hormel has many that are safe as does Oscar Meyer and others. Best to get prepackaged rather than from the deli slicer since the slicer can be a source of CC. Some companies are very good at labeling, Kraft and Unilever products are a good example, if you don't see a gluten ingredient it is safe. If you are having trouble figuring out whether a particular item is safe for you start a topic about it here and perhaps someone will know.

As ravenwood just said, nearly every deli meat out there is gluten-free.

As for the Nerds and Gobstoppers, the ingredients themselves are gluten-free, but they are made in a facility that also makes things with gluten. Some folks don't eat things made in shared facilities; many do. Your choice.

Really? a college course is being offered on "gluten free"?? wow--that's new.

And that is not necessarily true--many, many packages of food items in the stores do not have a "gluten free" label and they are naturally gluten free--like boxes of oranges and packages of beef, etc.

    • celiac disease is psychosomatic
      ...and CoQ10 deficiencies can occur in those taking statin drugs.  Really important to monitor that if you are on statins.

      I guess you must have to be a member then. I don't know because I am a member. It doesn't cost anything & I've never gotten any junk mail from them or anything unpleasant.  Gee, I didn't even think about that when I posted the link. OOPS! Let me know if you need me to copy & paste it because I will if you want.

      Hey, do you have to be a member of Medscape to see the article?  I could not get in pass the sign-in page.  
    • Starting out
      Ugh!  Run from that doctor.  Are you located on Mars?  Kidding aside, here's the deal.  If you go gluten free just to test it out and you feel good, then you might think you have a gluten issue.   A few months or a year go by and you realize that this is HARD.  REALLY HARD.  So, you start to cheat.  You get sloppy.  You start sharing a toaster.  Your symptoms come back, but you don't worry about it or maybe you start to get violently ill.  Symptoms so different from your old symptoms that you think you must have something else.  (You could be the type of person who makes a decision and sticks with it.  But those are rare folks.)   I could go on with more stories, but type in lymphoma in our forum's search box.  Look at member's who were misdirected by their physicians and who have had celiac disease all along.  Now they are dealing with cancer.   It is not my intent to scare you into thinking you have cancer.  The odds of you having it are slim and none.  I am trying to scare you into finding another doctor who really CARES about you and follows a normal standard level of care (like reading currant medical journals or checking Dr. Google, like my ER neighbor doctor does because he can not know everything!) It's just a simple blood test.  So easy.  If negative, then give the diet a try!
    • "Celiac disease prevents absorption of iron"
      Well, you are no longer anemic, so that's great!  As long as you are healed, you should be able to absorb iron easily.   Of course, there could be other issues that would prevent you from absorbing iron as villi damage can occur from many things other than celiac disease.   Want to know for sure where you stand?  Ask your doctor to check your iron and iron store levels the next time you have a physical.

      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.

      Hello! I am new to this Celiac website... Is there anyone out there with Celiac AND extensive food allergies? My allergies include shellfish, dairy, eggs, cantaloupe, kiwi, mango, nuts, oranges, red dye, and more I can't think of. I went to the allergist about a year ago to see why I wasn't feeling well, and once everything was eliminated, I still didn't feel well. We did more testing to find out I had celiac as well as allergies to cattle as well as rye grass (I live on a farm basically). This was back in January 2016. I recently had my endoscopy with the gastroenterologist a week ago. I have no idea what to do or what to eat... So fish and potatoes for me!
