Modified Food Starch-all Bad?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

ok, I am learning more here everyday. If I am understanding correctly,not all modified food starch has gluten in it, is this correct? if the product comes from one of the "trusted companies" than can I rest assured that it is gluten free? If it is from a company that is not trusted, then can I call them and simply inquire if their product contains gluten?This will seriously expand what I can purchase, so I really need to have a proper understanding. Thank you.

Hi--not all MFS is made from wheat. It could also be corn. There are a number of companies that will not hide gluten under the name modified food starch. Kraft, for instance, will list wheat if it is there. If you don't see gluten listed on a Kraft product (and some other companies), it is safe. Until you feel comfortable with knowing which brands will openly list gluten ingredients, it is best to call the companies to be sure. If in doubt, don't eat it. There are many lists to be found here, too. eeyor fan has done a lot of research and has posted many company's lists of gluten-free products. You can look up some of her posts to get you started.

It is one of those ingredients that can be questionable. As mentioned, a brand such as Kraft will have wheat,rye,barley,oats listed on the label if it has any and will not hide anything. So if a product has MFS and then doesn't say anything else it is gluten free. You only have to look for wheat,rye,barley, and oats for brands like Kraft(if you do not have the list of those companies let me know and I can send it to you)

If it is not one of those brands you have to call and check on it.

Thanks everyone, I think I understand the MFS thing a bit better now. And it greatly increases what food is allowable. Thanks.
