Name That Gluten!

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

My dd are sick today, and I'm trying to figure out just where the source of gluten came from. We've tried several new things this week, with school starting and all...and that always gets me. Anyway, here is the small list of new things we've had that may have glutened us.

Hershey's chocolate syrup

Pop Weaver microwave popcorn (from walmart)

Planters honey roasted peanuts

Dr. Pepper, cherry vanilla (we hardly ever drink soda, but I had a craving, lol)

It's been a bad week, we never eat this much new food, b/c I usually know better. Ugh, back to eating white rice and jello for a couple of days. I'm eliminating all of these things now, and my guess is the Hershey's syrup, what do you guys think?

I no longer use Hershey's Syrup, but it never glutened me.

How about the pop corn...was it labeled gluten free?

Some roasted peanuts do contain gluten, but I don't know which ones.

Planters is a Kraft brand. If there is gluten it will be clearly disclosed in the ingredient list.

Yeah, the more I think about it...I think it's the Hershey chocolate syrup. It may just be a trace amount, that has built up over the course of the week, and finally made us really sick today. Two days ago, I was getting heart palpitations, that is usually my first sign of a glutening, even before the stomach issues pop up.

My dd has been cranky and pale this week, but I just attributed it to school starting, until today. Darn, we were loving our chocolate almond milk in the morning. I bought the syrup for a special treat on the 1st day of school, and it's cheaper than buying the actual chocolate flavored almond milk. Oh well, that sure backfired on me!

I suspect it could be any or all of them! I have to be VERY careful with microwave popcorn. If the box says "manufactured in a facility that also processess......." then you have a cc problem. I wouldn't think it would be the syrup, but I can't do dairy anymore either, so it's been forever since having chocolate syrup.

We eat Hershey's chocolate syrup all the time and have never had a problem with it.

I vote for the syrup--I've reacted to it myself, and Hershey's is less than forthcoming on the source of their natural flavors. Sounds like it was a build-up of small amounts over the days.

I can relate to adding too many new things at once--that almost guarantees me a reaction.

Hope you both feel better soon :)

I doubt it is the pop weaver from Walmart. I wrote the company last month and this is the response:

Good afternoon Heidi and thank you for your email! Popcorn represents our company's only business and we take a great deal of pride in the products we produce and that leave our plant. We are very committed to bringing our customers the highest quality of popcorn at the most reasonable price and, we also want to produce products that meet the health concerns and needs of all of our customers. We continually search for ways to improve our products and always appreciate it when we hear from our customers! There is no wheat, barley, rye or oats gluten in any of our Pop Weaver Popcorn products or in the raw material ingredients. Thank you again for your inquiry and we hope you will continue to enjoy Pop Weaver Popcorn products. Have a good day! Shelli

Hope this helps!

ALL of these items are gluten-free. As for CC, always hard to say.

I have had Hershey twice this week with no problem at all, but everyone is different. I would think of the peanuts myself. I grabed a bag of sunflower seeds and it said right on it that they contained wheat. Go figure in sunflower seeds I never would of guessed.
