Choceur Chocolate Gluten Free, Not Gluten Free, Huh?
0

5 posts in this topic

Riddle me this, Batman:

Choceur Strawberry Yogurt Milk Chocolate Bars have a "gluten free" symbol (the one with the wheat) on the back, but ALSO list WHEAT as an ingredient.

Can someone explain that one to me?

These bars are made for Aldi's (where I shop) in Germany. They have a variety of bars that are labeled "gluten free" but don't list wheat as an ingredient like this specific bar.

Thanks.

Different rules in different places. Without actually seeing the label, I am speculating, but the product could be considered gluten-free under European rules while containing Codex wheat starch. Under Canadian rules, such a product can not be labeled gluten-free. In the United States, there is still no rule defining "gluten-free."

Would you consider it "safe" to eat their other bars, also labeled "gluten free" as this one is, but that do not list wheat as an ingredient? This particular bar is the only one of their selection I see with this peculiarity. They do have other chocolate bars that are NOT labeled gluten free, so I thought I they were safe for us Celiacs.

Yes, I would. Since you are buying the product in the US, any wheat content must, by law, be clearly disclosed.

    • Hi Aly and welcome You may want to repost this in a new thread, that way more people will see it and can advise you.  I think you would be much better off getting the celiac test now, if you stay off gluten you will need to go back on it and that can be much harder. That said, loads of your symptoms look like they could be gluten related.  I had a persistent 'trapped nerve' for instance under my eye which would twitch like crazy. Since I went gluten-free doesn't happen any more.  Best of luck! Matt
    • Your scalp sounds like seborrheic dermatitis. I have that and although its better after going gluten-free its very persistent. The dermatologist recommended Nizoral shampoo for it and it does help. I think dairy has a big part to play with skin problems, for me at least. 
    • I was diagnosed this year and I live on Oahu. I have yet to meet another celiac, so that tells you something about our limitations here. I work in Waikiki and do frequent Rouffage. It is nothing fancy, small place, but keeps me fed when I need something. I also like Greens and Vines. It is a vegan restaurant and worth every penny. Greens and vines sets up at the KCC farmers market on Saturdays too. Places in Waikiki that do offer a gluten-free menu include, PF Changs, Dennys, Big City Diner and California Pizza kitchen. I do not trust those places due to the risk, but they "offer" gluten-free options. I did try and order a beer at Yard House in Waikiki. They label clearly states that it contained wheat, so yeah sent that back with the waiter. I have also tied Doraku in Waikiki. I called ahead and spoke with management. That went well and they offer gluten free soy sauce. There is a deli at Down to Earth Grocery store in Honolulu that has gluten-free options, but the whole foods here do not offer hot food that is gluten free. They do have a hot food bar, but you have to stick to the whole plain salad and veggie options. It's good to hear the hotels here are getting better, beyond Waikiki hotels there is no one really interested in being gluten free.
    • Just found this site today. Did you ever find one? I was diagnosed this year and I live on Oahu.
