Edy's and Dryer's ice cream cross-contamination

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I am diagnosed Celiac and am really new to the gluten-free diet. I am confused about cross-contamination. I wanted to get opinions on Edy’s/Dryer’s ice cream (They are the same brand. They just have different names depending on where you live). I emailed Edy’s/Dryer’s and asked about gluten. They said that it’s usually only the obvious flavors that contain gluten, but sometimes it can be in other ingredients. They use shared lines and make no claims about how well they might clean them between flavors (if they do). They emailed me a list of flavors and indicated only two they felt they could claim are gluten-free: slow churned french silk and slow churned neopolatin. I do not care for those flavors. The obvious ones with gluten (cookies, etc.) had a definite for containing gluten. The majority of the flavors on the list were listed as TBD: “We currently cannot make any claims about gluten-free for this product.” The flavors I am interested in eating are the cup size version of slow churned mint chocolate chip and the cup size version of grand peanut butter cup. I did not see any ingredients in those two that looked like they might contain gluten. Would you eat the products or would you be worried about cross-contamination? I don’t know how picky I need to be about cross-contamination. Thank you.

Why?  I like ice cream that contains the fewest ingrediants.  Just my thing.  Hubby and kid consume most of it.   Not sure if this helps you.

Thank you for your reply, but that doesn't really help me. I am interested to find out if anyone eats Edy's/Dryers specifically. Thank you again for your reply though.

I would call and talk to them. Sometimes you get better response from them if you do.  You could also always add peanut butter cups/mint flavoring and chocolate chips to the vanilla slow churn if you are that concerned.

I gave up eating ice cream. I had been eating Blue Bunny All Natural Vanilla for YEARS without any problems but one batch was contaminated from someone not cleaning the line well enough. From now on unless I find certified gluten-free ice cream I will do without. And believe me, I loved my ice cream! I was addicted. It took a while to get over the cravings, but I am now 100% sugar free and don't miss ice cream at all.

Drastic? Yes. But I won't take another chance.


gluten-free since June, 2011

It took 3 !/2 years but my intolerances to corn, soy, and everything else (except gluten) are gone!

Life is good!
