as far as I know, most peanut butter is gluten free, especially if the only ingredient is peanuts. However whenever you are in doubt about a product, always remember you can check with the manufacturer!

Never seen a peanut butter with gluten, and definitely not one that has nothing but peanuts.

We only buy "natural" peanutbutter, that has only peanuts in it, and not all that extra junk and chemicals like Jiff, and etc. That kind never has gluten in it. We typical by the store barnd of it for cost reasons of course (kroger in this case)

Vincent--I used to love Kroger products when we lived in GA! I thought they were as good and a lot of times better than the "national brands". We're in NJ now, so no more Kroger :( --I use Smuker's Natural now.

I've wondered about peanut butter too. in most of the Natural brands I've seen, the only ingredient I don't recognize is "palm oil". I'm assuming this is safe because it's not on any "unsafe ingredient lists, but I want to double check. does anyone know for sure? Also, I noticed most of these posts on PB are pretty old- so i just wanted to double check. thanks!

Palm oil is coconut derived and is gluten free.

Thanks! that is helpful. that was the only ingredient in a jar of PB that I reacted to twice (the first I thought it was something else). I've now realized that there must have been CC (from a knife or something before I was living gluten-free). (I know that sounds like common sense-- i think we all agree this is a learning process). I gave that (fairly new) jar to a friend and will try a new one. Thanks again!

It's a fallacy.

Hi All,

Peanut butter is basically gluten free by nature. What can ruin that is if it is manufactured in a facility where it could be contaminated by other gluten products. A friend of mine is so sensitive that she's got to hide the peanut butter in the house so that none of the kids get into it. After spreading it on the bread and dipping it back in the jar for more, that's enough gluten contaminant to upset her body. My advice is read the label to see if it says its been processed in a place that has no cross contamination.

    • It makes a difference if you are Catholic. Don't want to get into a debate about why, but Catholic's must use some form of wheat in the host.  There is no such thing as a gluten free communion wafer at a Catholic Mass. The solution for a celiac is a LOW gluten host made from wheat starch.  That is not a solution that works for many celiacs.  You could also just take the cup, if it is offered, provided it does not have any of the host broken into it.  You do run the risk of cross contamination unless you are the first person receiving from the cup. Spiritual Communion is sometimes all you can do if you don't have a priest that understands or will work with you. My daughter has become very sensitive after a recent accidental high exposure to gluten. Her symptoms are neurological (loss of use of right foot and right arm, loss of balance, heaviness of limbs, loss of sight).   We spoke to our priest and he ordered a special small cup just for her. He leaves it covered during the consecration so there is no cross contamination.  My husband and I are Eucharistic Ministers and give it to her after we receive so the priest doesn't have to juggle so many things.   So, that is the Catholic solution. There is information on the USCCB website to provide your priest if he needs guidance.  http://www.usccb.org/prayer-and-worship/the-mass/order-of-mass/liturgy-of-the-eucharist/celiac-disease-and-alcohol-intolerance.cfm
    • So great to hear! Actually makes sense with the iron, as vitamin C helps in the absorption of iron. Sounds like a good theory that it is either the vitamin C, or vitamin C aiding in the absorption of the iron. Thanks for all the feedback. Going to try adding iron as well. Hoping this will help us both feel better and worry less  
    • Hello and welcome I don't have celiac. I do have several symptoms in common with you and I do have a problem with gluten, so NCGS for want of a better term.  A celiac response to gluten involves the immune system so there certainly can be a delay between ingestion and the body producing the antibodies. That would correlate with your tongue aching progressively through the week. Some of the weirder symptoms of celiac occur because those antibodies that have identified gluten proteins as a problem then attack different parts of the body, maybe that's the more delayed reaction in your case. Last time I was glutened definitely I noticed some reaction in a few hours but it was a couple of days before I was certain. After effects can last for weeks or months even.  Wheat allergy is the one with the instant response, it's IGE mediated and so you can have an immediate surge in histamines and in extreme cases anaphylaptic reaction. NCGS is less well understood, some dispute it's existince or question if gluten is the cause. The symptoms however are similar to celiac as far as I know and that includes response time.  You've been through a miserable time but your still young and you need to decide whether you want to pursue a diagnosis or not. If you do, then it will require a gluten challenge of probably 6-12 weeks. See the links below for more details.  If you don't I suggest you go strictly gluten free, keep a food diary and see if the improvements you noted before continue. I think you've probably found your answer. Best of luck!   Further reading https://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/announcement/3-frequently-asked-questions-about-celiac-disease/
    • This is why many of us stick to our own "Trusted Brands" of things we know are safe, and only buy stuff with the offical certification for gluten free. NOTE also in the US they do not HAVE to tell you their facility also processes wheat on the label, just if the actual product contains it in the ingredients. But many will just to avoid legal mumbo jumbo if they somehow have CC issues. Saying the facility also contains/processes wheat is just them covering themselves if people get sick from it.
    • I make my own mini loafs of a simple almond,coconut,apple sauce blend for dense, bland bread gluten free, and have my pastor bless them. I then keep them in the freezer and bring a piece with me for communion.
