Ice Cream A No-No ?

One of my weaknesses, prior to diagnosis, has been Blue Bell Ice Cream (a Texas brand). I hate to think about giving it up. What is the verdict on ice cream from those of you with more experience at gluten free??? thanks in advance for your reply.........

Most regular ice creams are safe. Generally, it is the obvious ones - like cookies and cream, that have wheat/gluten in it. That being said, always best to read the label. Wheat is required, by FDA labeling laws, to be listed. And, if any questions, call the company!

Hi Don, and welcome :)

I'm in Houston, so I completely understand about the Blue Bell! :D Their Homemade Vanilla is the best!! It's safe, as are many of their flavors--basically most of them except the obvious ones with cookie pieces or similar baked goods stirred in and -- very important-- their Chocolate ice cream has wheat flour among the ingredients so you definitely need to stay away from that one.

I eat Breyers Ice Cream all the time! Choc/Van/Straw ... And Edy's! Yummmm! :)

Just no cookie dough, cookies & cream, oreo cookie, etc...that kind of thing. Just read the labels or call the company to be safe.

Thanks Kathy! I wish I could say she was mine, but because of my allergies I really can't have dogs. I do have two cats though & they don't bother me too much. I would pick a dachshund if I could! I just love them! I photographed her during a photography session. I mostly photograph animals. She was so sweet! :)

Anyway, not to change the subject.... I had some ice cream last night! Breyer's Strawberry! Yummmmm! :)

Hello from the Pacific Northwest. I am, however, a graduate of Macarthur HS in Irving Texas and from Texas Tech. They have Blue Bell Ice cream up here now. It showed up a few years ago.

My question is about Costco's Kirkland brand Premium Ice Cream. I get my celiac symptoms with it (Loose stooles, brain fog and pain in my feet from activation of my celiac induced neuropathy). the cheapo brand we bought last week did not do this. I tried the costco ice cream a bit last night and a bit tonight (1/2 c) and had the same reaction both nights. Hmm. the cheapo brand to which I did not have a reaction has all the same ingredients as the costco brand, but has some the costco brand does not.

Any ideas?

thanks,

Frances

Hi Frances, welcome to the board!

I have two thoughts--one is that you could be sensitive to one of the ingredients in the Kirkland brand. The other, more likely in my opinion, is cross contamination as in made on the same lines as a flavor that contains gluten like cookie dough or something similar.

I've had reactions to some ice creams and not others also--if you're very sensitive it can be pretty frustrating sometimes.
