Skippy Peanut Butter
0

9 posts in this topic

So me and hubby are suppose to be going gluten free. He grew up loving Skippy Peanut butter. So we were just in the grocery store and found through our triumph dining grocery guide...a few peanut butters that are gluten free..awesome..but...he would LOVE to be able to have skippy again lol But it wasn't listed in the book. I could care less most of the time peanut butter is peanut butter to me but he would love to be able to have skippy again. So we looked at the ingredients and it seems only one of the skippy containers said gluten free...it was something with a honey nut flavor or something? I can't remember now but along the side it specifically said "gluten free" then i looked at the regular skippy and it didn't say that so I told him to hold on and I'd check what some of you have to say? I dunno why the other type of skippy didn't say gluten free when one did..shouldn't they just put it on all of them if they are? lol

Skippy is owned by Unilever, and they will label all forms of gluten on their labels. If you don't seen wheat, barley or rye, it contains no gluten.

They are a Unilever company and that company is very good about labeling.

Are all Skippy Nut butters gluten free?

Information available: Ingredients that may contain any of the top eight allergens as defined by the FDA:

Peanuts, tree nuts, soy, fish, seafood, wheat, eggs, and milk or dairy, as well as any ingredient that may contain gluten, are always listed on the label.

Since product formulations change from time to time, the best advice we can give you is to check the ingredient list on the label.

Good! They confused me by putting gluten free on one and not the other it made me second guess! lol

We use the plain & chunk. There is nothing in the ingredients to suggest gluten.

I about freaked when I saw skippy come up in a topic. Especially after that BBQ fiasco, which really got me going. I'm glad this got corrected quickly cuz I live on Udi's and skippy. Thanks. Be well.

    • Did Jennifer Esposito Leave Town Amid $43 Million Gluten-Free Bakery Lawsuit?
      Wasn't this some gossip rag nonsense from a few weeks back?  I think it's been proven false.  But, even so, why is celebrity gossip from unreliable sources here?  And I can't leave a comment on the actual article, because he approves and often edits the comment.
    • Recovery?
      Hi PLB, If he hasn't been gluten-free very long, he might still be able to get blood testing done for the gliaden (gluten) antibodies.  More than a couple weeks may be too long tho. As far as recovery, it varies from person to person.  The condition associated with celiac that you are thinking of is probably gluten ataxia.  Gluten ataxia is an antibody attack on the brain cells that can cause problems walking and controlling muscles.  Generally it seems people consider nervous system healing / recovery to be a fairly slow process.  Although it sounds like your husband is experiencing some recovery already, which is great! I've read about coconut having benefits for people with alzhiemers disease, but don't know if it would help him.  I doubt it would hurt though.  The B-vitamins including B-12 are supposed to be very important for nervous system health.  Vitamin d is also important but make sure you take a supplement that is tested and reliable.  Check out https://labdoor.com/  for their review/test results.  Dr. Hadjivassiliou has done some research on gluten ataxia and you might find reading his information helpful. Nuerological symptoms without gastro symptoms
      http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/20170845 Dietary treatment of gluten ataxia
      http://jnnp.bmj.com/content/74/9/1221.full Ubo's, Epilepsy And Celiac Testing for celiac disease usually starts with a blood antibody test and then a endoscopy to check for gut damage.  If a person has been off gluten for a while though, the tests are not much use.  The antibodies in the bloodstream start to drop off and may not be detectable anymore.  They usually say to eat gluten for around 12 weeks in that case before trying testing again.  I can understand why he wouldn't want to do that though considering his symptoms.  I am not sure it would be a good idea. Welcome to the forum and congrats on finding  away to improve his condition! If you turn on the notify me of replies slide button near the bottom left of the reply screen you can get an email when you receive responses to your thread. There is some helpful info in this thread about celiac disease.             
    • Genetic Results
      I have been looking for an explanation to what exactly I have, as my doctor just said that I have the genes that cause Celiac. They never went any further than that.... The wikipedia link makes some sense, but at the same time it does not. It almost seems like I have 1 full DQ2, and half of a DQ2?   Test: DQ Alpha 1 - 02:01,03 Test : DQ Beta 1 - 02:02,03:02 DQ Serologic Equivalent: 2,8 Method: Molecular typing of HLA antigens performed using reverse SSOP and/or SSP methods, reported as serological equivalents and low to medium resolution molecular values

      Maybe check if they have any local gluten free/ Celiac Facebook groups?  Someone just posted on ours for this same thing and got some responses.
    • Quinoa Well Tolerated In Patients With Celiac Disease - Science Daily (Press Release)
      Maybe not true for you....but that doesn't mean all Celiacs can't eat it.  Does it?

      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.
      https://youtu.be/IU6jVEwpjnE Thank You,
