My son has recently been diagnosed. In doing research, trying to learn what is and isn't safe, yogurt has a big question mark. Big picture- it seems to be safe, but I'm finding some information that says that all yogurt isn't necessarily safe.

Is it a brand issue? From this site, it seems that Stonyfield Farms yogurt is safe. Are there any brands that are NOT safe?

I'm obviously checking labels, etc, but being new to this, I don't want to miss anything important!

Thanks.

Sarah

I emailed our local brands. They were very nice and told me that all of the flavors are gluten-free. One told me that at one time, they had put Graham crackers into the "pie" flavors but didn't work well so they stopped. Also, told me about their ice creams, etc.

Yoplait is labeling the new Greek yogurt as gluten-free.

Plain yogurt is usually a safe choice. Add your own fruit and sweetener. I have seen a few yogurts in the market with wheat clearly listed on the label. I'm sorry I don't remember what brand, so do always check the label. They were flavored yogurts. The Fage Greek yogurt is safe.

I eat the Greek yogurts because I like them better--Fage and Greek Gods are both gluten-free.

I can't eat yogurt right now. The forum suggested I go gluten-free a bit longer before trying it again.

We're a Yoplait family. Containers are marked gluten free.

I've heard Dannon won't guarantee gluten-free with their yogurt, but I've never seen anything in the ingredients to indicate otherwise. But, Yoplait has a good labeling practice so they get my business.

I have had quite a time with this stuff until I figured out that a lot of the brands with added milk solids were not low enough in lactose for me, apparently it was not getting aged out. I'm eating greek yogurt right now, so far, so good (keeping fingers crossed.)

I've yet to see a yogurt clearly listing gluten (except a few that have a packet of granola to add). Some yogurts in the past have either said their product was not gluten-free or they wouldn't comment one way or another because grain alcohol was used to extract some of the flavors used. Stoneyfield was one of these (they finally admitted this was the only reason they told people to stick with plain) and Dannon still refuses to say its yogurt is safe. We now know that extraction of flavors with a grain alcohol is not an issue for us and this is NOT a reason to avoid a yogurt.

Hi!

My father is from Iran and he buys Aravian yogurt, and it only has three ingredients, milk, pectin and 5 probiotics. You can buy it at any persian store as far as I know! And persian yogurt is always very nice.

Best,

Amelia

Yoplait, Stoneyfield Greek yogurt, and Lifeway kefir are all good... I don't purchase Dannon because they have been so evasive about their ingredients.
