Vanilla Extract

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I baked muffins using "pure" vanilla extract- I looked at the ingredients and one of them was alcohol, but my mom said it was safe and that I was just being paranoid, so I made the muffins and ate two of them. I was up all night with a bad stomach. Was the alcohol in that vanilla extract gluten containing? I have no idea how to tell. The brand was Durkee Pure Vanilla Extract. I would love any information anyone could give me. Thanks!

I don't know about that brand. My vanilla said the same thing so I called to ask what the alcohol was made from, they told me it was from corn. Get the companies # and call them. It might be safe, but other brands I have called about are gluten-free but not made in a designated gluten-free line, so their is the cross contamination thing also.

Good luck

I know that McCormic's Pure Vanilla Extract is gluten-free.

I use it all the time! :)

Hi,

I've been using "flavorganics" vanilla extract with no problems. It's labeled gluten-free. I just visited their website to see if I could find out if it's made in a gluten-free facility or on a dedicated line, but there was no mention of gluten anywhere. It's too late to call because they're on the east coast and I'm on the west coast. I'll either call another day or e-mail them and post what I find out.

Shanmac - "When it doubt, do without" is definitely the way to go to avoid accidental ingestion of gluten. There's no way for you to know if Durkee Pure Vanilla Extract is gluten-free without contacting the company. Be safe. Call or e-mail them and then let us know what you find out! Thanks.

Good day, all - Toni

does anyone know of the best place (or website) to get gluten free vanilla extract? I know the McCormicks vanilla extract is gluten free, but if there is a place I could buy clearly labeled gluten free vanilla extract, that would be great. :rolleyes:

I ordered gluten-free vanilla powder from one of the companies listed in the back of a Bette Hagman gluten-free cookbook and it is great. However, I made my own by filling a small jar with potato vodka and putting a vanilla bean in it. After about a month, I had great vanilla flavoring. I was delighted to read about Mccormicks however. I just always assumed that all of the bought vanillas were made with alcohol distilled from grain.

Be careful if making your own gluten-free vanilla... I have noticed many whole vanilla beans are preserved in bourbon. Wouldn't that effect the gluten-free-ness of it?

I'm glad to know that McCormick's pure vanilla extract is gluten-free. I e-mailed them and they never got back to me, but I did see on a gluten-free food list that all their extracts are gluten-free.

I just ordered some gluten-free vanilla powder. I am hoping it works good. They said it gives a more true vanilla flavor. I hope so. I really don't care for the alcohol flavor of the extract when I mix it with certain foods.

I decided to make Chocolate Chip Cookies from the gluten Free Pantry it calls for gluten free vanilla. Does anyone know of a company that we can trust. Thanks Loretta

I can't seem to find any info on this. I found a wonderful recipe for cheesecake (no flour) that calls for vanilla extract, but I have no idea if it's safe. Could someone who cooks please enlighten me?

    • I agree 100% but in that disclaimer they said in a restaurant setting. They sell canned chili in the local stores so I would think that I should be okay. I've tried to make my own chili but the problem is that I suck. I'm a horrible cook. Gordon Ramsey would probably slap me in the face. Cincinnati style chili is different from most chili out there too. There is chocolate, cinnamon, and some other ingredients that you won't find in other chili recipes out there. It's different and if you screw it up, not good. Give it a try. Like I said, if you make it right, the best you've ever had.  
    • Hi Nikkster, They often call the celiac testing a celiac panel.  There is also a celiac screening test they sometimes do first, the ttg.  You want to get the full celiac panel if possible.  Not everyone shows up on just the screening test.
    • Maybe get your vitamin D levels checked.  And take some K-2. K-2 is supposed to help vitamin D absorb into bones.  Oh, and skip the Dominos next time! We all make mistakes at times,.
    • I am actually trying to bulk up and body build with this disease. I go with a keto diet of fats and protein, I use vegan protein powders throughout the day. I used to use nutrakey V-Pro and now mostly use MRM Veggie Elite, blend, and do my own mixes with Naked Pea, Jarrow Pumpkin seed, MRM Sancha Inchi, and various blends from Julian Bakery pegan line. I use them in shakes with almond butter or sunflower butter sometimes using macadamia, pecan, etc. If I can get them and drink it throughout the day. I found large omelettes and quiche made with coconut flour and almond flour with leafy greens mixed in every day for breakfast works out great. I found some nut based breads (found online then started making my own in my bakery) and eat them toasted with avocado. And I always have 1 scoop pumpkin protein (great for recovery) and 1 scoop pea protein before bed. I sometimes take extra BCAAs from Jarrow to help prevent muscle break down Try adding a bit of coconut oil to everything to get in more fats.   <.< recently trying some T boosters but not seeming much from them.
      Keto Fat bombs...look them up made with nut butters, coconut, coconut oil, and protein powder versions great way to stack on the calories.
    • I'm from the UK so I can't help you on the recommendation, but  instead of canned chili have you tried making your own? It's super easy to do, far nicer and cheaper than any  pre-made  variety and you can make a big batch and freeze small portions so its always available if you need a quick filling meal? There's no reason a chili should include gluten btw, but if they're telling you that there's a high probability of cc its best not to eat there in any case!   Edit: checked their site:  https://www.skylinechili.com/special-dietary-options.php#glutenfree They're basically telling you there could be cc
