I bought a trail mix from walmart (Mountain Trail Mix) and it seems to bother my stomach...looking at the ingredients it appears safe, but then I am new to the gluten-free diet and I may not be picking up on gluten ingredients. Here are the ingredients:

Raisins, peanuts, M&M's (milk chocolate - sugar, cocoa mass, milk ingredients, cocoa butter, lactose, soy lecithin, salt, artificial flavours), sugar, corn starch, corn syrup, gum acacia, color (tartrazine), dextrin, carnuaba wax, almonds, cashews, peanut oil.

Can someone help with this? Unless I am lactose intolerant (which I have not been tested for), then I don't see why this would bother me. Maybe because it is manufactured on the same equipment as other trail mixes that contain oats?

Thanks for listening!

Cheers

Hi Carrie--Have you been gluten-free for long? Sometimes after being on the diet for a while, other intolerances come up. Also, many Celiacs have trouble digesting lactose before the intestine has a chance to heal. If you think it's the lactose, you could try cutting it out--and if it helps, don't try it again for 6 months. That may give your system time to heal enough to digest it. Another possibility is CC--there are a lot of ingredients in there--most likely, it was produced in a facility that processes other foods. Dried fruit bothers some in the inital stages of healing. Best to try individual foods first to see how you do with them.

I just pinned your topic--topics go to the end of the forum until a moderator reads and pins it in the proper forum. :)

Oooh, now I understand, thanks :P

Thanks everyone for the replies, I will probably just avoid the trail mix, or even make my own basic one.

but it obviously don't agree with me! :(

My boyfriend and i buy this trail mix alot. being that its the only one of their mixes that i think would be gluten-free (some of the others contain choc. chips, or sesame sticks, or seasonings). i had problems with it too at the begining of my gluten-free diet. now i seem to handle it fine. i would think its ok being that M&Ms, nuts, and raisins are all okay to eat. i had noticed that i have a problem with nuts sometimes- they make my stomach gurgle a little.

Walmart is now labeling all their gluten-free stuff. I had noticed this was not labeled as gluten-free and just assumed it may have CC issues or the dextrin or artificial flavors may be the problem.

Great Value is labeled, but Sam's Choice (which makes the trail mix) does NOT label gluten-free
