In Topic: Ice Cream

Except for ones with obvious issues, like Oreo or cookie dough,  almost all ice creams are gluten-free. Read the label, as always, to be sure. The ice cream itself will almost certainly be gluten-free, you just have to worry about added content. Mainstream stuff like vanilla, chocolate, strawberry and the like do not worry me.

And keep in mind that our furry friends get it on their feet and track it all over the house. If this litter is in use, it will be everywhere. The suggestions for disposable gloves and masks are excellent.

If the product is tested for gluten content, there will be a detection level for the test. Levels less than that amount will not be picked up by the test, so if the manufacturer makes a statement, it will be qualified, as in, contains less than 20 parts per million (ppm). 20 ppm is a common test level. Zero ppm can not be proven scientifically, and although tests more sensitive than 20 ppm exist, the cost goes up dramatically as the threshold goes down.


Personally, I am more comfortable about a food with such a statement about testing, than one that just says "gluten-free." At least they tested for possible contamination.

I don't consider name brand products to be of any different risk than store brands.

It is likely glucose syrup. That is a highly refined sugar that is gluten-free even if made from wheat as the original source.
