Gluten Free Peanut Butter

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I searched for information on here re gluten free peanut butter and saw a lot of posts that mostly say peanut butter is gluten free....but not one that mentions cross contamination because peanuts are often processed in facilities that also process gluten/wheat....can anyone address this. I find most nuts are contaminated...are peanuts not? I'm starting wonder if I can't tolerate the nuts themselves. I would love to hear from folks who have had peanut butter without any issues...thanks

We love Skippy Natural PB. My son and I are getting more sensitive by the day, and have no issues with Skippy. We have both reacted to both Stater Bros and Ralphs store brands,

Thanks Rachelle and Wolicki....This is good to know, I'm always looking at peanut butter in the stores but afraid to get them...I have so many food sensitivities...I never heard of Adams....I'll check these brands out, thanks a bunch!! :)

I have not had any problems with this one peanut butter.. MaraNatha Organic Crunchy & Roasted Peanut Butter it is 16 oz and this one is with salt.. if you have a problem with soy it says it may contain traces of soy and tree nuts..

I hope this helps..

I had issues with many peanut butters but it turned out to be the soy oil and/or high fructose corn syrup that was the issue. I go for a peanut butter now that is just peanuts and salt. I use Wegmans brand but other organic brands that are just peanuts have been fine.

Thank you all again. I do react to soy so the MaraNatha Organic won't work for me, but thanks for your input Backboneexecutives...:)

Lovegrov....I bought some nuts from nuts online dot com, they were raw and out of the shell....spent 120.00 bought a bunch....started eating them every day...and began to notice subtle symptoms....that continued each day....I felt like I was being glutened, but knew I wasn't eating anything with gluten...symptoms of malabsorption were back, full blown...I couldn't figure out why....so I began to review everything I ate, and the one thing I was eating everyday was those nuts, a variety of them....so I sent an email to nuts online dot com and asked them if they process their nuts on the same lines as gluten and they wrote back....YES....after that I wrote to several online distributors and they all told me the same thing!

I love peanut butter and thought there must be someplace to get it gluten free, without cross contamination...because one speck of gluten makes me sick, obviously....I couldn't see gluten on those nuts....anyway when I came here to find out about a brand, not one person mentioned cross contamination and that surprised me...:)

I would go for the peanuts and salt only versions also Ravenwoodglass...Sarah? :) It's been a while...I don't do anything with high fructose corn syrup, and I am sensitive to soy...I'll look for the Wegmans or Skippy Natural brands....thank you all again...just having a few good things makes you feel so much better, my latest treat is frozen bananas....yummmm...thanks again everyone, much appreciated! Happy New Year

I eat skippy natural with no problems.

If they are produced on the same lines as wheat, it should be on the label-not so for barley and rye.

It also could be the nuts themselves. I have GI problems after eating almonds, all other nuts are fine.

Yes it took me a while but I realized that that's why some labels say 'no wheat' and others say, 'no wheat, gluten' very important to say both, since barley and rye contain gluten too. And yes, it could be the nuts, but the nuts from the place I mentioned were contaminated. I had all the same symptoms as when I ate gluten...and of course the company confirmed that for me. Yes, it should have been on the label....but it wasn't. Thanks Jennifer....:)

Unfortunately there is no regulation that says that they have to disclose even wheat if there is a chance for CC. Like with a shared line or facility. That labeling is totally voluntary as of this time. Hopefully that will change. Some companies have good policies about labeling CC risk but many don't.
