    Do you have questions about celiac disease or the gluten-free diet?

I wanted to try Schwans Foods because we are moving deeper into the country and further from supermarkets and these people deliver. I just wondered if anyone has used their foods? I did go on their web site, they don't have a gluten-free list but you can read the labels. Has anyone experienced any cross contamination? I appreciate your input.

I use their asparagus spears, the broccoli-cauliflower-carrot mix, and I have tried the tamales which do not seem to bother me, but please be careful with them. The vegtables are very good. I haven't tried too many of their other items though. Good luck.

Judy05,

I called Schwan's headquarters after I was diagnosed to ask about their modified food starch and they stated it is from corn. So far I haven't had any trouble with CC, but I am still new and feeling icky some days (been on the diet for 2 1/2 months and got glutened for sure once). Thankfully most of their ice cream is gluten free - other than the brownie and confetti cake. :)

I have found a great replacement for the confetti cake - it is a Dryers light slow churned special edition (edys in some places). It is an American Idol flavor (you vote for your favorite) and it is called Take the Cake. It's cake flavored ice cream with frosting and sprinkles and it is not only light but AMAZING! I was so excited - if you look on the website and look up the flavor under ingrediants it actually says gluten free. My whole non gluten-free, non dieting family loves and that is too bad for me!

Schwans is still around? They used to be here in Manitoba, but I believe they got bought out I think almost 8 years ago. From what I remember is their food was delious. The vanilla ice cream is the best ice cream I have ever tasted. What part of the continent are they still in?

I know this most likely is a dead topic.

But.......

I order from Schwans all the time. They do not have a Gluten Free list, but will let you know about any product. Just call them and tell they that you are asking about the possible gluten in a product. They will have to transfer you to a "product specialist," I think they are called. They have me marked as someone that has called before and they aways seem to know why I am calling.

About the ice cream. When I called about it, they told me that ALL the ice cream is made in the place. That cross contamination is a big problem. They recommended that I do not eat any of the ice cream.

Anyone know about Schwan's ice cream bars currently??

You can read ingredients on line. I don't think they make any gluten-free claims.
