I haven't got the slightest idea how to change people, but still I keep a long list of prospective candidates just in case I should ever figure it out.

Yay Fage!

It IS daunting, but, trust your own body and its reactions and only search for the answers YOU need. Everyone's experience with this "condition" is not the same. "...just dropped in to see what condition my condition was in....."

Good health to all,

I'm going to copy and paste an email I received in October 2009 - I am in Canada - not the US

.....

Thank you for taking the time to write to us.

Danone has only 1 lines of yogurts that contain or may contain gluten: Activia.

Some Activia flavors contains gluten and nuts, consequently, even if we do two complete rinsings between flavors, its may contain trace of nuts. This is only for the multipacks. On the other hand, the 650g containers are manufactured on different lines (no cross contamination possible between flavors).

The Activia 650g: plain, vanilla, strawberry and prune are gluten and nuts free.

All the other Danone product are gluten and nuts free.

As a guideline, we always write on the ingredients list if a yogurt contains gluten or nuts.

You can be assured of Danone's consideration for all comments and questions from its customers.

so im eating my breky this morning and i bought my self some dannon activa yogurt, ive been eating yogurt from the health food stores with no probs, but this morning i have gone to the bathroom twice allready. now im reading some conflicting stuff on the web about this yogurt but i did find a site that states it is no longer gluten-free as some of the natural flavors may accually have gluten in them. anyone have problems with this brand of yogurt. im lactose intolerant and yogurt is one thing that i can handle without having to take a lactaid so im hoping that its just this brand as yesterday i ate my stuff from the health food store with no problems.

Why is that so different from their website?

Q: Is Dannon yogurt gluten free?

A: We no longer use the term gluten free with respect to our yogurts. Instead we separate our products into gluten safe or not gluten safe categories, depending on the specific brand of Dannon yogurt. Dannon Plain yogurts (Lowfat, Nonfat and Natural) and Dannon Plain Activia (in the 24 ounce container) are all gluten safe. However, all other Dannon yogurts cannot be designated as gluten safe because we do not specifically test every ingredient or the overall finished product for gluten.

Q: Is DanActive gluten free or gluten safe?

A: No. DanActive cannot be designated as gluten safe because we do not specifically test every ingredient or the overall finished product for gluten.

I eat Yoplait. It says "gluten-free" right on the container with no wiggle words anywhere.

Dannon has more than one website depending on what country your in. That may account for the difference.

I go with Yoplait or the Wegmans brand also.

I just found Dannon Activia Desserts. I emailed the company and have yet to get a reply. I have a feeling the yogurt I bought will be going to my co-workers. I won't take a chance given what I have read. :unsure:
