Heavy Whipping Cream Gluten-Free?
0

9 posts in this topic

I just did some searching around about this and saw a reply on Wiki Answers about this at: http://wiki.answers.com/Q/Is_heavy_whipping_cream_gluten_free The only reason I ask is because of the reply on Wiki Answers, but I am sure they were using a different kind of Heavy Whipping Cream...

Anyway, I have a Great Value brand in front of me and it has no milk and I have checked the ingredients with the ingredients to avoid on celiac.com Everything seems to be fine. Here are the ingredients: Ultra-pasterized Heavy Cream, Carrageenan, Mono and Diglycerides, polysorbate 80.

I have used this in the past to make Fettuccine Alfredo - which is one of the foods I eat a lot. I'm thinking it should be fine...

It is gluten free. The person referenced in the wiki answer sounds like she might be dairy intolerant.

No need to avoid dairy unless you are finding you are having trouble with it - some folks need to avoid dairy when first gluten-free because it is hard to digest when the villi of the small intestine are damaged.

Milk, cream and butter are naturally gluten-free. If something is added to them, it is possible that gluten could be present. The only case I can imagine would be chocolate flavored milk, which could possibly contain barley malt.

If you have decided to avoid milk...you do realize that Cream is milk?

Or, at the very least, contains lots of lactose. Churning it into butter would remove most of the lactose (although not all)

Just read your post regarding giving up milk. This would mean you need to give up cream as well. You can make sauces with rice milk, almond milk or coconut milk.

Yeah, I am finding I am having a ton of trouble with milk products. So right now I am definitely dairy intolerant. I honestly had no idea. I just found out a bunch of products have milk in them and this is why I am feeling so terrible. I am glad that I am finding out so much in such a short time-frame from being diagnoses with Celiac.

BTW, I did some research on milk alternatives and did find out about rice milk, etc. I am thinking about trying rice milk at this time, since I have read some reviews claiming to taste similar to regular cow's milk. Of course I'll have to supplement the Vitamns, etc from cow's milk with other foods.

Rice milk doesn't really taste like cow's milk, but to pour over milk and cook with it is a great substitution. You might want to grab one rice and one almond at the store. I have one son that prefers almond and one that prefers rice - no telling which you'll prefer.

or try So Delicious Coconut milk. Tastes great, has lots of calcium and works well in just about every recipe that calls for milk.

    • Hi Laurabella, Yes, you could have celiac disease!  It is important to keep eating gluten until all testing is completed, including an endoscopy with biopsy samples if the doctor recommends it.  The doctors usually do want the endoscopy.  The biopsy samples of the small intestine lining (4 to 6 samples) are checked for microscopic damage that indicates celiac disease.  Gall bladder problems can happen with celiac disease.  Your pain could also be from intestinal damage in any part of the small intestine. Some things you could try while you are waiting for your tests to be completed are stopping all dairy, and taking peppermint tea for gas in the stomach.  Celiac disease damage makes it hard to digest dairy sugar (lactose) and that can cause bloating and pain.  Constipation and diahrea are also possible fun symptoms. Welcome to the forum!
    • Hi Beachgrl, We have had members with microscopic colitis before, usually in addition to celiac disease.  Have you been tested for celiac disease?  The reason I ask is, it is much better to be tested for celiac before starting the gluten-free diet.  The primary tests for celiac are to detect antibodies to gliaden in the bloodstream.  Those antibodies start to decline when a person stops eating gluten, so the tests become useless. There is no reason a person can't have more than one digestive system disease.  So it is smart to be tested for celiac disease if you can get the testing arranged.  Any change in symptoms after stopping gluten is an indicator that gluten is causing a reaction of some kind.  It could be celiac, or it could be non-celiac gluten intolerance, (NCGI).  There aren't any reliable tests for NCGI yet. Welcome to the forum!
    • I have microscopic colitis. Having a bad flare of D.  On Budesonide for first time for this. It's helping some- only on it a week. Do you think gluten free would help even if tested negative a few years ago?  Was gluten free yesterday and no BM changes. Even had cramps this AM that wasn't really having before. Thank you!!
    • Do you want to tell us the name of it ans where it is located.  maybe someone else will be looking for a restaurant there. Also, it is very helpful if you go to Find me Gluten Free and review it.
    • Hi. Im currently under consultants at my hospital,  and have just been for a blood test to test for celiacs. My symptoms are.... Low weight (8stone and 5ft6tall) Joint pain,particularly my hips and lower back  Severe pain in my gall bladder area which happens spontaneously... Especially after eating foods containing gluten.  When i have foods with wheat in i pain in my  right side just under my bottom rib, i become a bit spaced out and cant focus on anything. Also get diahorrea aswell. I recently contracted C-Diff and was in hospital for 4 days very poorly. Im 29years old (female) and the doctors r trying to work out what is wrong with me. I have always struggled to gain weight,  even after having 2 children i am still only 8stone. I was just wondering if u think i could have celiacs?  The pain in my side has been on and off for 7years! And the last 3years its been severe. And it definitely comes on as soon as i have gluten/wheat.
