Hello Vincent,

Thank you for taking the time to contact us. We always welcome comments

and questions from our yogurt lovers and are grateful when someone takes

the time to let us know what they think of our Company and products.

Though we don't add gluten, there is an immeasurable amount of gluten in

our flavored yogurt that contains natural flavorings. A distilled grain

alcohol is used to extract flavors from spices. Our nonfat plain, low

fat plain and whole milk plain do not contain any natural flavorings.

If you have any doubts on whether to consume these flavors, please

contact your doctor. We are in the process of learning more about

Celiac disease and have been told that some individuals are sensitive to

miniscule amounts. We have difficulty answering questions because we are

concerned about giving out information to individuals who have unique

and sensitive health issues without the person going through their

doctor. Especially since the outcome can be serious.

We are passionately committed to producing the best tasting, healthiest

yogurts available, and trying to do some good in the world while we're

at it. Please visit our web site at Stonyfield.com to learn more.

Sincerely,

Fil Kovisars

Consumer Relations

FROM THE FOLKS AT STONYFIELD FARM!

So sounds like thier stuff is fine? Distilling removes gluten right?

Stoneyfield has confirmed that the "gluten" they talk about comes from distilled alcohol and only distilled alcohol. I agree with the experts who say distilling takes the danger out, so I would eat it.

Even if you didn't agree and believe that none of the "gluten" is eliminated, extracting flavors using alcohol isn't anything like drinking the alcohol because the amount of alcohol left in the flavor is so miniscule. The amount of gluten almost certainly wouldn't even be measureable.

Vincent, like I told you before, my daughter and I both eat their yogurt without any problems. Currently I only get the French Vanilla from them because I like that Cascade Fresh clearly labels their product, but before I started using Cascade Fresh, I ate Stoneyfield products with no effects whatsoever.

My daughter loves the tubes of their yogurt, I freeze them and she eats them like popsicles.
