Breyers Ice Cream

Recommended Posts

Last night i ate some breyers - all natural , lactose free vanilla ice cream. I put a little strawberry jam in it for some flavor. Almost instantly after finishing it my stomach acted up. The pain was horrible.

Now it is supposed to be gluten free-- Is there a chance it had some in it anyway?>

Any time you eat any processed food there's a chance gluten slipped in, but I would think with the vanilla ice cream the chances would be very slim. Any chance there were bread crumbs in the jam?

Breyers makes lactose free ice cream? :o:lol: Yay!

Perhaps you are sensitive to casein as well as lactose? Or it could very well be the bread crumbs as Lovegrov suggested.

I had written to Breyers this week, I thought I would share their response. -Jessica :rolleyes:

Dear Jessica,

Thank you for your recent inquiry about gluten in Good Humor-Breyers products.

We currently do not have a gluten list, and are recommending consumers read the

ingredient label on our cartons.  If wheat, barley, or rye were used in a

product, it would be clearly listed.  The flavorings may contain ethyl alcohol.

However, we cannot guarantee from which grain the alcohol was derived.

Because the alcohol used in our products is distilled, there are no proteins

present and would not pose a threat to anyone who is gluten intolerant.

Thank you.

This is just a theory, but perhaps the lactose free variety is not gluten-free? I had read somewhere to be very careful of the sugar-free, low-fat or otherwise different varieties of safe foods because their formulations are completely different. I know that the regular Breyer's full-fat stuff is gluten-free because I have eaten them (and the label is VERY simple on those - no big words!) but not so sure about the "altered" ones.

Cass, if you're going to try to convince us that beef and milk are causing brittle bones, I think you need a better source that The Truth Seeker. I mean there's some flat-out nutty, tinfoil hat stuff there. Israel was founded not as a Jewish state but as an occult state? It wasn't a plane that hit the Pentagon on Sept. 11?

Is Earth still round or is it flat again?

Gimme a break.

I think the person who posted the anti dairy anti meat statement may be a "troll"...look at the date they signed up..one day prior to posting. Someone's on a mission, me thinks.

BUT....also, I'm not so sure I'd take a doctors advice as gospel either. Look at how long it's taking the medical profession to understand gluten intolerance. They also USED to claim that calcium based kidney stones were from eating too much dairy when in fact it's just the opposite.

I take everything under advisement and do my own research to come to my own conclusions. Sometimes they coincide with the docs...sometimes they don't.

-------

Back to the main question regarding the ice cream. I'd be inclined to think that perhaps the contamination came from the jam as well. I've never had trouble with Breyers ice cream.... Sometimes when I eat something for the first time, I have an adverse reaction to it as well.....Along with being lactose free, it wasn't sugar free by chance was it?

Somebody who goes to forums and writes inflammatory posts to stir up trouble. On political web sites conservatives will troll liberal sites and vice versa trying to sow dissension or just make the site look dumb. This troll might or might not actually have celiac but apparently DOES have some sort of dietary agenda.

I agree! This person is on just about every thread preaching a ridiculous "eat hardly anything" diet to people who are looking for positive ways to deal with a difficult disease. I've never heard of a Troll before, but it makes perfect sense...and gets on my nerves!

Back to the original thread ...

I too have had an awfull belly almost immediatley with breyers ice cream but only when I had it on an empty stomach. When I've had a small serving as a dessert, I have had no problem. Unusally have about a 1/3 cup serving as not to push the issue and that helps me.

Yes, I figured that she had an agenda now that she's avoided posting. Oh well, we don't need four-letter-word people on this message board! The community is perfect the way it is :)

I bet she didn't really have Celiac anyway.

Beat the Wheat (barley, rye, oats and malt),
