Strawberries From Sharis Berries?

Does anybody know, if strawberries from this company are gluten free?

I just receive a box of them. I can't have them because I have allergy to milk, but my husband can eat them, if they are safe ....

I bet they are gluten-free but I would call and ask.

I just called them. The person didn't even knew what I'm talking about, so I told them I have allergy to wheat. She didn't knew, so she asked her manager. After wail she gave me the answer that it is gluten free.

So I think, it is safe.

I know this is an old thread but found it after I just received a box of Shari's Berries yesterday and one of the responses here is wrong as of 5/2016.  There was no ingredient info on their website so I called.  I was on hold for twenty minutes (it was Mother's Day!) and was finally told - after the person checked with her supervisor - that they are NOT gluten free.  If you search gluten free on their website - you get fruit baskets not the chocolate covered berries - another clue.  Would it have been so hard to include ingredient information? Or list in FAQs?

My husband and I received a box of these from a family member and the complete ingredients list was included in the box of strawberries, along with allergy warnings.  It appears that some of the dipped strawberries are gluten free and some are not.  There are versions that have a lot of stuff on the berries and some are just plain chocolate dipped.  I did not eat any because it was a mixed box so some of the berries were not gluten-free. 

I find it does not always pay to talk to someone at the company because they can be just as clueless as anyone else. I want to see ingredient lists myself. Then I can ask about shared lines, cleaning equipment, etc.  If I had been shipped a plain chocolate dipped version, I would have tried them but not when they are all mixed in with non-gluten-free versions.

    • They didn't suggest any probiotic support. Ultimately the side-effects of this drug stabilized approaching the end of the course of treatment, though after it was finished, I was perhaps a bit improved, but no profound symptom resolution for me. Darn! The search goes on.
    • Thankyou I have found that I became intolerant of dairy and having cut it out feeling better but if I come into accidental consumption the symptoms are similar to that of gluten but not as severe .. Patience ay ?
    • I checked the Gluten Free Watchdog (I subscribe) and did not find this  particular product, but found the company's oat bran flakes which did not list any gluten ingrediants, but barley was found in testing well over 20 parts per million.  I would stick with certified gluten-free cereals, personally.  I think it is "hit or miss" on grain products.    
    • It is normal for other intolerances to become apparent once you remove gluten. I don't know why, perhaps as the immune system is free'd from chasing gluten it finds new targets? A lot of coeliacs find they have to cut out dairy as well for example. It's certainly my number one culprit for skin issues.  It also can take time for removing gluten to have its full effect, as antibodies will remain in the body for up to 6 months. So the reaction could still be to gluten in a way. 
    • I did not re-test my antibodies for a full year after diagnosis but I think your daughter should be checked again in 6 months.  If she does have celiac, and I really am sure she does regardless of what this doc seems to think, they should decrease in 6 months.  If she is fast healer, they could potentially be in the normal range but it varies from person to person. She did show damage in her small intestine but at 4 years of age, damage would not have progressed to the point where this doctor could be convinced it is Celiac.  They set the bar way too high. Kind of silly to require you to damage her insides further to prove it to the AMA. I think she should go gluten-free, as you have stated, and re-scope her in 6 months to see how the original damage looks then. If it is gone, then maybe that would convince them. The 4 out 5 criteria is not done in kids because, I am convinced, of liability issues. They just do not want to get sued if by some small chance, they diagnosed someone who did not have Celiac.  I think the odds of that are pretty slim, when you think about it. Even with a misdiagnosis, eating gluten free will never harm anyone. But as children are minors and cannot legally make medical decisions on their own like adults can, that rule is out for them.
