Natural Flavoring

Recommended Posts

Guest j_mommy

Am I correct? I can have something that has "natural flavoring" if it is made in the U.S.????? I have just been DX'd with celiac disease and am finding the "rules" a little confusing. The"natural flavoring" is throwing me off!!!! Help

Natural flavourings and colourings can be made from wheat, as it is considered natural. But if it is derived from any of the major allergens etc it needs to be labelled as such.

I have also seen barley malt hidden under "natural flavoring". Wheat has to be listed on the label now by law, but barley does not. You should verify all products that have natural flavoring on the ingredient list or stick with products whose manufacturers will not hide gluten on their label (Kraft, General Mills, Unilever, etc).

Welcome! :)

It can be very overwhelming at first...we understand.

Wheat in any form must be listed now on all food products. That covers natural/artificial flavorings, modified food starch, etc. etc. etc. So unless it lists wheat, it does not have it. This does not cover rye, barley, and oats though.

These companies have a policy that they will clearly state any source of gluten and will not hide it, so you can read their labels with confidence. (hint-turn over the back of many products at the grocery store...you will see who processes them...MANY are on this list!)

Arrowhead Mills, Aunt Nelly's, Balance, Baskin Robbins, Ben & Jerry, Bertoli, Betty Crocker, Blue Bunny, Breyers, Campbells, Cascadian Farms, Celestial Seasonings, ConAgra, Country Crock, Edy's, General Mills, Good Humor, Green Giant, Haagen Daz, Hellman's, Hershey, Hormel, Hungry Jack, Jiffy, Knorr, Kozy Shack, Kraft, Lawry's, Libby's, Lipton, Martha White, Maxwell House, McCormick, Nabisco, Nestle, Old El Paso, Ortega, Pillsbury, Popsicle, Post, Progresso, Ragu, Russell Stover, Seneca Foods, Skippy, Smucker, Stokely's, Sunny Delight, T Marzetti, Tyson, Unilever, Wishbone, Yoplait, Zatarain's.

Best of luck, and let us know what we can do to help.
