Oddest Places That Have Gluten

Recommended Posts

This has always bothered me. How could the frozen stuff NOT have gluten? It would seem they would use the same "milk" and turn it into the frozen stuff. I don't let my daughter have it because I think it is suspect.

If you feel uncertain, it's probably better safe than sorry.

Here is the link that I am going by in considering the FROZEN vanilla Rice Dream ice cream substitute to be gluten free:

I hope that's correct info. I don't eat it very often, but hasn't seemed to bother me when I do eat that stuff.

Here is a weird one we ran into:

some (but not all) latex gloves are dusted with "something" that made my daughter sick. We also stear clear of balloons that have the same dusted appearance for that reason.

Did some research on this and it seems that 9/10 times it is cornstarch but it is hard to know what it could be the 10th time and one usually does not see the package and when I did, there were no ingredients.

I am completely surprised about all of this information!! Thank you all for posting these, I thought all I had to worry about was eating or drinking gluten!

I am looking up the lotions and face creams that I use, and was curious what the names of the ingrediants (sp?) that I should look for. I don't think that it will say "gluten" on a facial moisterizer will it? Anywho, thanks again!!

Does anyone know about the rubber bands they give you for braces? My ortho says their OK and they don't even use gloves that are dusted but I always worry about that.

Tea. Had to toss a box of lemon tea once. Good thing I looked.

Only "flavored" tea is suspect. Plain black or green tea is okay. So are herbal teas if they haven't added a flavoring. Mint teas seem to be only mint leaves. Teas with lemon seem to have added flavorings. Best to just add lemon juice.

Are you serious about the charcoal? We grill out ALL the time and I never thought to look.

Stephanie

Here are a few discussions in the past about charcoal -

Thank you for the links. I would have never thought of our charcoal... EVER! Is wheat taking over the world!? :wacko:

I know... It makes you want to pitch a fit doesn't it?

!

as far as i know, there is no gluten in glucose syrup from wheat - have read this on numerous "safe foods" sites from coeliac assns around the world.

How could there not be? My daughter got sick from Mentos, although what she has is an allergy and not celiac. Hmmm...

it is so processed that there is no gluten, but it is still wheat, so if she has a wheat allergy, it would obviously still be a problem for her.

goldfish food flakes contain wheat. I got myself good with this one several times before I noticed they did. I haven't found any yet that are "safe"....ridiculous. fish aren't supposed to eat wheat :P

What? You don't remember your grandpa talking about the olden days and the herds of wild goldfish roaming the plains...?

Tropicana OJ isn't safe?

I drink it, and to my knowledge it's never made me sick. But I'm usually VERY sensitive.

I'll stop drinking it, if it's not safe, I don't want to press my luck.

Does anyone know for sure?

- Hydrolyzed Protein (if derived source is not indicated, could be wheat protein)

- Artificial flavoring (often includes (Barley) malt)

- Dunkin donuts flavored coffees :-( (regular formula seems to be ok)

- Stoneyfield Farms Organic yogurt with fruit (best to eat plain yogurt and add all fruit jelly, fresh fruit or sugar)

- Vitamins/supplements - there are so many hidden places, some examples:

Choline - primary vegetable sources are wheat and oats

Wheat germ - found in most supplements

Barley grass - found this in the ingredients on vitamins labeled "gluten free"

Hot tip: be sure to check the "derived" source of any supplement

- dried fruits (sometimes dusted with flour to keep them from sticking together)

- when dining out, if you order broiled or grilled meat/fish be sure to specify that they not use grill baste (gluten free menu at Carraba's states this)

hiyas

over here in australia at least, m&ms, mars bars and snickers All contain wheat starch or Wheat Glucose Syrup! i thought i would mention it Becuz i have seen threads where ppl say m&ms and snickers are gluten free. i do realize things are made different in different countrys sometimes!

gluten free since 25th april 2007 (2 days so far ! yay lol)

I too live in AU, but I thought it was only the peanut m&m's that had gluten in them, dont have a bag around to check it but thats what I remember from looking in the past.

Kelloggs Corn Pops cereal, used to be gluten-free, Id eat sooo much of it until I started feeling ill. Rechecked the ingredients and found out there was wheat added. I called company.....yes, they have a new formula for the cereal, and added wheat!!!!! I was shocked. I couldve avoided this if I checked the label.....got lazy in doing this bc they were always gluten-free.

So, beware!!!!

Also, I've noticed products labeled gluten-free, only to read on and notice the warning that the product is made in a facility that uses wheat..........so how can that product be gluten-free???? Obviously there's contamination!!!!!!

Ladies..........check label when buying LIPSTICK!!!!! I dont use the ones that have wheat germ listed. Who would ever think G would be found in cosmetics? But, now Im aware to look for wheat......putting something directly on your lips with wheat, is asking for trouble!!!!!

Facial moisturizers too, check label....

Facial moisturizers too, check label....

I attended a Celiac conference today and the doctor from MacMaster Hospital and the nurtitionist (Shelley Case) both said that the gluten molecules are too large to penetrate the skin so moisturizers, shampoos, etc. are fine. The only thing they said to watch for was gluten in lipstick.

I was surprised to hear this. After everything I read on this forum, I pitched my "hydrolyzed wheat protein" items for "gluten and wheat free"....

Thoughts?

This is true. However, you have moisturizer on your hands, then you eat with them ... or facial moisturizer, you touch your face or just get it too close to your mouth .... shampoo/conditioner, well, I know what mine tastes like!

I don't worry about my toenail polish though!

That's what many of us in the crowd were saying too....

To me, I will continue to buy the gluten-free just to be on the safe side...one less thing to worry about!! :)

Seventh Generation Maxi pads. Who woulda thunk it? I never would have known had I not been bored while in the bathroom and picked up the package to read it. The absorbant material is made of wheat! Must remember this as daughter has a wheat allergy.
