Caramel Coloring

Recommended Posts

the info that we got from our ped gi stated that caramel coloring is most likely not to be made from anything containing gluten----so i have not been worrying when i see it on a label. has anyone had a problem with caramel coloring?

I would be very interested to find out more about Food colorings as well. I have heard that some colorings contain gluten,red and blue particularly, but I have not been successful in my research to support this theory. I have heard others shoot down the caramel coloring theory, Things like coke and pepsi are gluten-free and I believe they have caramel coloring??

My understanding is that in the US carmel coloring is safe (based on gluten-free Living magazine and I think this site). However outside the US carmel color can be questionable. Sometimes safe sometimes not.

this is what the info the doc's office gave me said---it is from gluten-free living 2002---

according to the FDA code of federal regulations(CFR), caramel color can be made from wheat. but US companies use corn because it makes a better product. wheat could be used to make caramel color outside the US, but it is reasonable to assume corn is more likely.

Caramel coloring in the U.S. is fine. In more than four years I've never found caramel coloring with gluten.

The same goes with the red and blue dyes -- the reason the research hasn't supported these dyes having gluten is because they don't

Do we assume that everything we buy in the us is manufactered here? What about food items made out of the us, does the FDA code still apply?How do you know where the food is coming from? Can I safely assume that anything I buy in the US with caramel coloring is fine?

thats great news! My MIL has celiac disease and states that the red and blue dyes, along with caramel coloring and MSG all contain gluten. Then I come here and find out that they don't. Then my husb and i get court marshalled when she discovers us eating something she thinks we shouldnt. I then am left to try and convince her that I am correct.!!

It makes learning about this even more difficult when you hear contrasting stories.

MY MONEY IS ON YOU GUYS!!

THANKS!

kathy, i am finding that some people haven't kept up with the new info. i have a firend that has had celiac disease for 8 years-----she still thought vinegar, and quinoa were not safe and didn't know that buckwheat isn't wheat.
