Mccormick Neon Food Dye

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I just woke up from my nap and ate a sugar cookie that I made but used food dye this time in the frosting and feel bloated.

Here are the ingredients:

Water, Propylene Glycol, FD & C Blue 1, FD&C Red 3. FD&C Yellow 5, FD&C Red 40 and Proplparaben (Preservative)

the Better Crocker Decor selects which are a 6 pack of sprinkles has the following ingredients

Sugar, caranuba wax, confectioner glaze, yellow 5 and 6, red 3, blue 1

I made the sugar cookies last week without the dye and sprinkles and did just fine so it has to be something in one of these ingredients.

Does powdered sugar have wheat?

If powdered sugar had wheat, the law would require it to be listed.

Nothing in the ingredients you listed would seem to have gluten. In addition, you mention McCormick in your title. McCormick clearly lists any gluten in its products.

Bloating is not always caused by gluten, there are lots of foods that can cause bloating, especially sugar. Just because you didn't feel bloated the last time you ate cookies doesn't mean you won't ever feel bloated after eating them. There are lots of other factors that go into feeling bloated too, what else you ate today and even yesterday, how much water you've had, etc. I don't think you got glutened by the food dye or sprinkles.

Thanks all. This was bloating due to gluten, I know the difference. My daughter slipped me one bite of her muddy buddy which is rice chex, melted semi choc. morsals and p-nut butter all mixed together. I figured out that one little rice chex I had was contaminated since she used her p-nut butter. :o We learn as we go!

I have the Gluten allergy and I would not eat anything with that many dyes in it.  I try to avoid dyes as much as possible.  Even if they say they are gluten-free, you don't know what other chemicals make them up.

The info on this thread is from 2009.  Some ingredients may have changed during that amount of time.

 

Dyes are not a gluten concern.  You may not want to eat them for other reasons.
