In Topic: Are M&Ms Gluten Free?

15 June 2010 - 09:06 PM

Hi! I have a 4yr old son with Celiac. He is extremely sensitive to gluten, and eats M and Ms all the time with no reaction. The peanut and plain are both safe, but not sure about ant other types. Skittles are gluten-free too! Enjoy!

I have some confusion over M&Ms.

M&Ms candy contains Dextrim, but according to a post I read online, the writer, who had celiac disease, contacted M&M/Mars and was told the candy was gluten free as the Dextrim is not gluten containing. I'm curious, then, why in the bestselling book Raising Your Celiac Child by Donna Korn, she lists hundreds of gluten free candies and manufacturers, everything from Hershey's to Cadburys, and does not list M&Ms as an approved candy for celiac kids. Can anyone clear this question up for me?

Thanks!

Emily

In addition to the previous post, I also have a 2 year old son, no signs of Celiac at this time and NO night terrors either!

Yes. I have a 4 year old son who was diagnosed w/Celiac about 6 months ago. He has had frequent night terrors since he was about 2 years old. He would wake up screaming and talking with his eyes open, but he was not really awake, and he was nearly impossible to comfort. It seems his night terrors have gotten better since he's been gluten free, but still has them rarely. Never thought the two were related until I saw your post. Very interesting!
