Minute Maid Products

Recommended Posts

I emailed Minute Maid asking if their juice boxes and pouches are gluten free for my DD. This is the response below, they can't guarantee they are 100% gluten free. I don't know much about Codex yet, still learning. Would you avoid anything not listed in the first paragraph that is confirmed gluten free?

We are able to confirm that Coca-Cola classic, caffeine free Coca-Cola classic,

Tea, Simply Orange Juice Country Stand Medium Pulp with Calcium, Simply

Lemonade, Simply Limeade, POWERade Mountain Blast, POWERade Grape, and our 100%

juice products (without added ingredients) are gluten free.

Additionally, we can tell you that all of our other products meet Codex's

definition of gluten-free, which is currently less than 200 ppm (parts per

million) (0.02%) gluten. Codex is in the process of reviewing this standard and

we are monitoring the progress closely. At this time the U.S. Food and Drug

Administration does not have a regulatory definition of gluten-free.

We can assure you that the exact amount of gluten in all these other products is

very low - perhaps even zero. Some minor ingredients in these products are

manufactured from plants that gluten-sensitive people could react to, so we are

unable to state categorically that they are totally gluten-free even though they may have undetectable levels of

gluten in them. The Codex guideline provides a very low threshold for gluten

content. However, extremely gluten-sensitive individuals should discuss

consumption of these products with their health care provider.

We hope this information is helpful. If you have additional questions or

comments, please feel free to contact us again.

Well, I like it when a company can state gluten-free, but what about buying 100% juice in a large bottle, and fill a thermos for your DD? Cheaper, and it stays cold. Healthy too!
