The "Almondy" Original Swedish Almond TOrte with DAIM from IKEA is unbelievably good--and it's gluten-free!!!!!!!!!!!!!

You can eat it by the slice in their restaurant, but it's quite inexpensive to buy the whole thing frozen and bring it home.

I wonder how many more IKEA products are gluten-free? I had actually bought this before I knew I had a problem with gluten, just because it tastes so good.

You mean like desks and coffee tables and stuff like that? :lol:

You don't know how right you are. A "proper" torte, according to a Martha Stewart Living rerun I was watching recently, is made with nut flour. They aren't meant to contain any wheat flour at all. So what's really good about these tortes is that they aren't gluten-free because someone made them for a specific dietary market, they're gluten free because they're better that way.

I have two of those in my freezer! Thet are very good. I think you can get them at either Sunnybridge or Whole foods. I can't remember where I purchased them at but they might be cheaper than at Ikea. I also bought a choc.decent dessert at Trader Joe's in Ohio when I was there. I'm not a choc. person but it looked so good...I will get the name of it of the box if anyone wants it.....

Visited Ikea, today. YUM!! Three varieties of the torte -- chocolate, caramel(more like toffee), and almond. All free of gluten. Guy behind the counter showed me the box so I could read the ingredients and saw website almondy.com I haven't checked it out yet. Also box indicated they were connected w/ Kraft foods.

Very yummy, I thought a small amount went a long way. I might break mine into mini - bite size pieces and freeze them.

Lucky me, Mom decided to serve it for dessert on Easter -- it was that yummy! (I'm the only gluten-free one in the bunch!)

I know this is an old post and I hate to be the bearer of bad news...but...I recently was at IKEA and looked at their nutrition binder for something there that I could eat (it is available upon request) and the almond tortes contain WHEAT STARCH! I was very upset because they prominently display that they are GLUTEN FREE! I pointed it out to the cashier who suggested I ask for the binder, but I'm sure it won't go much further than that. My only supposition is that since its a European company, their standards must be different for classifying 'gluten free' and I think I read somewhere that in Europe, wheat starch is considered gluten free.

Pure wheat starch is inherently gluten-free, but there is a risk of cross-contamination during its extraction. I believe that in Europe, some wheat starch is produced with the intent of using it in gluten-free products, and this wheat starch is tested for gluten content. Many cakes and cookies labeled as gluten-free in Europe include wheat starch as an ingredient. There must be many people on the gluten-free diet in Europe who consume these (and when I visit Europe, I am among them), but you'll need to decide for yourself whether you feel safe.

Watch out for the Blueberry or Strawberry Cheesecakes in the Freezer Cabinets (can't remember the name, Swedish of course) it's also Gluten Free. They Normally have a list at the food checkout which lists Gluten Free items maybe also other allergies.

Best Regards,

I'm slightly confused. I went to the website of the company that at least used to make them (almondy) and I don't even see wheat starch listed as an ingredient. Did the manufacturer they use change? Because these are the ingredients I see on the website:

Sugar, egg white, water, vegetable fat, glucose syrup, cream, almonds, apricot kernels, egg yolk, condensed milk, cocoa butter, skimmed milk powder, buttermilk powder, cocoa mass, butter, whey powder, stabilizer (sorbitol, carboxy methyl cellulose, pectin, gellan gum), cocoa powder, emulsifier (soy lecithin, lactic acid esters of mono- and diglycerides, mono- and diglycerides of fatty acids), salt, freeze-dried coffee, flavouring.

Contains milk, egg, soy lecithin, almonds.

May contain traces of peanuts.

Contains Marabou milk chocolate (12%)

and meringues (6%).

    • Hi Whitepaw Your question about what was I eating before I fell ill is a good one.  I had given a party the previous month and there was a lot of cake left over and what is more, it was all gluten free because I had made it!  So I was eating maybe a couple of slices a day...  I was taking soluable aspirin when I shouldn't take it, really.  I was also taking iron supplements.   And adding chilli to a lot of my food - normally not a problem.   And I had a huge amount of stress going on having just completed a project and also having tests on a lump on my tongue. Oh yes - and  I ate some marshmallows which may have contained gluten?  And my son had a stomach virus at the time. High fat food + aspirin + iron supplements + chilli + stress+ possible glutening + stomach virus?  = gastritis!! I also ate quite a lot of walnuts the days before it got really bad so maybe they didn't help. I need to be much more careful - it has taught me a lesson. I'm particularly cross with myself about the aspirin and also not checking the marshmallow ingredients as I am usually so careful. I know exactly what you mean about dreading the next meal - last night I had chicken and potato again but added a tiny bit of bolognese and I actually enjoyed the meal, which I think meant it sat easier in my stomach.   I think that there is a psychological element to acute gastritis, too.  I think if one is stressed it can hang around a lot longer.  I have read a few posts from people who found after trying to do all the right things to get better it was going onto medication to help with stress that actually helped them get better in the end.  I can see that - because if I could hear the children fighting, or had a stressful conversation with someone, I could actually feel my stomach react. Anyway - thank you for your help, I am so grateful. And great idea about the food diary.  Perhaps, also, worth making a note about stress factors on a particular day, and what meds one was on.  I think ompremazole was a great way to stop the gnawing pain for me but since I have lowered the dose I have to say that a lot of the bloating and feeling of nausea has gone. I think if I ever get gastritis again I'll stick myself on a gastritis diet first, just for a few days.   If that doesn't help I'll probably check with my doctor but take ompremazole for maybe two to three weeks til the gnawing stops, then taper down.  I hope it won't happen again though!  There is no doubt about it, it is a drug to be taken with caution, but I have to say I have heard some success stories too of people who took it short term and were helped tremendously.  I think tapering off it is probably a good idea, though, because I do have a friend who I think is suffering from rebound at the moment by coming off an inhibitor cold turkey.
    • Well thanks everyone seriously. I'm sure this will get better and I'm thankful this reaction is normal. So guilty when I think of others worse off than me. I will read and read and read until I've taught myself to feel better. And then help others ((((hugs all around)))
    • I'm curious to hear updates on your EC condition.   Thanks
    • @Larkie how are you lips doing now? Have you found something that worked for you yet? I'm curious and eager for updates from anyone who overcame this condition. Thanks
    • The fullness of the Eucharist is found in the wine alone. However, glutenfreewatchdog did an article on the low gluten hosts recently. She tested a single host from the Benedictine sisters and found it to contain 0.0017 mg of gluten. Compare that to the 0.57mg found in a piece of gluten free bread. The amount of gluten you are exposed to is negligible if you take a low gluten host Here's a GOOD article to read.... http://www.catholicnewsagency.com/amp/news/gluten-and-communion-whats-a-celiac-to-do-72220/ And, finally, I would strongly encourage you to review the articles you are posting and using legitimate news sources. The National Catholic Reporter is widely known to be a source of inaccurate Catholic news and most Catholics disregard the information that comes from their paper. The Catholic church is not excluding anyone from receiving Holy Communion.
