Jelly Bean/candy Help!

Recommended Posts

just had a TON of sweettart jellybeans and my legs are covered in hives. are they gluten free?

also - is there a candy list that lists everything that has gluten in it? didnt know that skittles or cadbury mini eggs in it!


- gluten free since August 2007

- endoscopy came back negative for celiac in December 2007

- bloodwork confirms egg allergy

- allergy testing confirms only banana, apple, melon, egg and environmental allergies

i get hives anywhere on my waist down and less bloating/constipation when i do not eat wheat.

Rice Krispies have barley malt, so yes that is probably it. Also skittles are fine, though I don't know about the jellybeans


Gluten Free since 10/07

Mildly Lactose Intolerant, slight intestinal symptoms after eating milk products, but easily corrected with lactase enzyme

Endometriosis- DX'd 5/07

Gluten Antibodies- "negative"...don't know exact numbers, am highly suspicious...

DXed celiac 12-19-07 via genetics/elimination diet- DQ2 allele

Brother with Celiac, aspergers...his tests were all negative (he didn't have genetics done), including endoscopy, but he definitely is at the least gluten intolerant...highly suspect my mother has it as well- she has hyperthyroid, fibromyalgia, hemochromatosis, and now colon cancer, and she has been weak and exhausted and just generally sick. She's going to get tested.

jelly bellies are fine; rice crispies are right out due to barley malt.

Rice Crispies are not gluten-free. I was pretty sure Skittles were. Daughter eats them all the time. Not sure about the Cadbury. We're allergic to other ingredients in most chocolates. I think (but am not sure) the Jelly Beans you bought are subject to CC.

As for gluten-free Jelly Beans, we get the Starburst or the Jolly Rancher.
