I have always loved Swedish fish and they are gluten free (according to the company) and since I've cut out gluten and dairy they have been my go-to sugary snack. I bought some yesterday and ate them but felt sick to my stomach. I just ate some more 2 minutes ago and now feel sick again :P does anyone know if they are for sure gluten free? Im not having a reaction like I usually would to gluten so idk if it's gluten or something else....

Ingredients: sugar, invert sugar, corn syrup, modified corn starch, citric acid, white mineral oil, artificial flavored, red40, and caranauba wax

Thanks for any help..... It might just be too much JUNK!

No gluten ingredients there. Mineral oil seems kind of weird to eat though.

I'd bet on the junk factor if it doesn't feel like gluten. :lol:

mineral oil is used as a laxative so that may be why you are feeling sick...But for sure Swedish Fish are gluten-free....I will repeat myself from other posts.. A new person on the gluten-free lifestyle should stay away from processed gluten-free foods , give you intestinal tract a chance to heal ....

I'm feeling more nauseous than the other end...lol!

Thanks for the replies....well I've been gluten free for almost 2 years and eat a good amount of processed foods, so I'm wondering if maybe one of the ingredients don't agree with me? Idk...but that's super interesting about the mineral oil!

I have been trying to eat less processed foods (which by the way I lost 12 pounds in the last month!) so maybe because I ate those processed Swedish fish, it bothered me more than usual?

They are gluten free, I eat them all the time. I have found though that if I eat or drink anything at all that is sugary by itself I get very nauseous so I avoid doing that. (You would not believe the size box of those things you can buy at Costco!)
