Is vegan pate gluten free?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi all!

I'm new to the forum, my diagnosis is in process ( waiting for ttg and EMA results ).
Since I have severe symptoms for almost ten years, I decided to go on a gluten free diet, it's becoming unbearable.

So my question is are vegan pates found in stores gluten free?
Content description on them says they have yeast and yeast extract but it doesn't specify gluten free.
Eating them would make my diet easier and cheaper, but I have to be sure.

Thank you in advance! :)

Are you planning on having an endoscopy?  If you are, you should continue to eat gluten until all test are finished.

in the US, wheat must be labeled.  So yeast and yeast  extract are gluten-free unless it says something like " brewer's yeast" or lists wheat somewhere.  It might say it in a statement at the end of ingredients " may contain wheat" or " contains wheat".

Well, as I understand, complete blood test is enough for diagnosis and since I really can't wait couple of more months due to the severe pain and fatigue, I'm not planning  endoscopy.

This product is from Germany, it doesn't say it has brewer's yeast or wheat.

If your results aren't very high, they may want to do an endoscopy to make sure it is actually Celiac causing them to be slightly elevated.  There are other reasons for a slightly elevated ttg.

 

As for the food, in the US, it does not matter where the food is made, it must adhere to the U. S. labeling standards.  I believe that is true for Canada, too.  If you are in Germany,then I don't know what their gluten-free labeling laws are.  Then your best bet might be to try to contact the manufacturer by phone, email or Facebook.
