I use Log Cabin original, Aunt Jemina Origianl or Mrs. Butterworth's original. All 3 are gluten-free. Be careful about other varieties though, such as butter flavor, Lite or sugar fee. I have not checked all of those out, but maybe someone else has.

I eat Van's gluten-free waffles everyday for breakfast! :)

WHOA!! check your sources on those syrups again!

Aunt Jemima syrup IS gluten free.

Log Cabin & Mrs. Butterworth syrups : A Pinnacle Foods consumer services rep. reported that these syrups are NOT gluten-free (they consider barley a natural flavor, and therefore it is not listed in ingredients). Pinnacle says the exception is Log Cabin Country Kitchen Syrup, which IS gluten-free.

I use 100% organic pure maple syrup. There are different brands available. But at least there are no added ingredients. However, for a family it could get expensive.

Grandmother died of malnutrition b/c everything made her sick... sounds like celiac to me.

Gluten-free since June 2005

Dx with IBS February 2005

Blood tests both negative (or inconclusive?) for celiac (in 2002 and 2004)

i agree that 100% pure maple syrup is the way to go... but if youre a single mom, currently not working like me- gotta take the shortcuts and get what you can afford!

Rache & Jaimi--If you have a Wegmans nearby, their store brand pancake syrup w/2% maple syrup is marked on the bottle gluten-free. It's $1.99 a bottle!

I have no idea what Wegmans even is! Yeah, I live in the middle of nowhere. But that price sure isnt bad!

:D Rache--That's so funny! I thought that maybe, because you're from Western Pa., that you had one. We have them here in NJ and Eastern Pa and up in NY. They're a huge grocery store--and very special-diet friendly, for a major chain. Oh well, gave it a shot! :D

I looked it up... There is one in Erie PA. which is like an hour away from me. I was actually thinking about heading to the mall up there sometime soon, so if i do i plan on checking out Wegmans. Thanks for the idea!

Yes--If you're going there anyway, definately check it out. They mark their own brands gluten-free, lactose free, vegan, kosher, etc. They have a really good selection of natural toiletries, teas, produce--I think you'll enjoy looking around there. :)

Is the Mrs. Buttersworth barley new? It was gluten-free before. When did you call?

I had been eating Mrs Butterworths b/c it has been listed as gluten-free before. I had recently read in a couple places that it was no longer gluten-free. I'm going to look for something i can find for everyone as proof.

I had seen somewhere also that Aunt Jemima is gluten free too. I read it somewhere and was happy about it b/c it was the one on sale. I have eaten it a few times (almost thru with the bottle) and I havent had any problems. I am going to check the label again.

I just picked up Krogers "Honey Maple Syrup", all thoguh I MUCH perfer 100% pure Vermont Maple Syrup, cant realy afford it all that often. Gonna have to call Kroger later and check gluten-free status on it, but since its a "new" falvor, it should have the new labling and does not mention wheat so I am fiarly confident they will say its gluten-free.

Sorry to not have done the right research (NO TIME!!!) but could you tell me what the "new labeling" is for Kroger? I have not read about that. I shop at Fred Meyer here on the West Coast & they were bought by Kroger so that is their store brand now.

Thank you!!

Thank you!!

FDA passed a regulation that went into effect Jan 2006 that says you HAVE TO disclose the top 8 allergens in all foods, and that includes wheat. However, they are allowing manufacutres to use up old lables first.

EDIT: Oh Jami forgot to say, your gonna like haveing Kroger! Most Kroger brand products are safe, and if you call thier toll free number on week days, in middle fo the day, you can usally get right through to a registered dietation that cna looke up the gluten-free status of any of thier products for you. They are VERY easy to work with.

Okay, here is some info that I found.....

Delphi List lists Log Cabin, all varieties gluten-free as of 3/25/2004. I did send another email off to them today, as the phone number I had was not good. I will update here when I hear back.

They also list Mrs. Butterworths original as gluten-free and I have an email into them as well.

I think that is where I got my original info. I knew that I had found it somewhere.

Sorry again for any confusion.

I had an email from them listing the information i had posted before, but i cant find it! so i emailed again yesterday. if i can find the other email (which was just sent to me a couple months ago) ill post it! i get very worried trusting foods that are gluten-free 2 years ago, so much can change in 2 years with ingredients!
