Does All Pancake Syrup Have Gluten In It?

I read to stay away from syrup. I get a little reaction from my sugar free pancake sryup. Aunt Jemima. Is it gluten free or are there any syrups that are gluten free? I'm confused!

100% pure maple syrup is gluten-free (all it is is maple syrup). If there are other ingredients involved, that could be a different story. Stick with the pure stuff if you can and you'll be fine.

I think there's a really long thread on this somewhere. I"ll try to find it.

yep, stick to pure maple syrup and you're good. I prefer to use fruit preserves on my pancakes personally, or just plain fresh chopped fruit! :-)

Aunt Jemima Original is gluten-free, not sure about the Sugar Free version. If it is, it could be the artificial sweetner you are reacting to. I know that I have a problem with splenda and nutrasweet.

I am going to give 100% pure maple syrup a try once I run out of this bottle of AJ.

I use pure maple syrup, too. I use it as a sweetner on other things in addition to pancakes.

Gluten Free Pantry has a really yummy one, but there was a thread while back where a couple of people posted their own recipes for pancake mix--that would probably be a heckuva lot cheaper.

I'm not sure where you're located, but I get Gluten Free Pantry at my local Acme--their pancake mix is really good. My non gluten-free husband likes them, too! Also, Wegman's Pancake Syrup is gluten-free, and says so right on the label. (My husband actually likes it better than my pure maple syrup). Go figure :D

I have a jar of mrs butterworth here. Nothing outstandingly bad on the label.

My syrup is both gluten-free and sugar free: Cozy Cottage is the brand name. I either got it at Walmart or Krogers.

According to the companies more than a year ago, Aunt Jemima is gluten-free, but Log Cabin (except Country Kitchen) and Mrs. Butterworth's have barley in them. Remember that barley does not specifically have to be listed.

Richard, what do you mean? Do you mean on the bold May contain line? Doesn't it HAVE to be in the ingredient list, just not in the "may contain"?

Neither - barley can be hidden in 'natural flavors', doesn't have to go on the 'may contain' line (which I think is optional anyway), and doesn't have to be listed at all. The allergen labeling law was for the eight major food allergens, and barley is not one of them. They are wheat, dairy, tree nuts, peanuts, fish, shellfish, eggs, and soy.

I got this response when asking about Mrs. Butterworth's Syrup--

To: jerseyangel

May 15, 2006

E-Mail Address: jerseyangel

Dear Ms.

Thank you for taking the time to inquire about Pinnacle Foods

Corporation

and the products we produce which might be gluten-free. We appreciate

your interest in our company and our products.

At the present time, Vlasic® Pickles, Sauerkraut and Peppers and Log

Cabin® Country Kitchen syrup are gluten-free. The vinegar used in

production of these items is corn-based, rather than wheat-based.

Other

items in our product lines (which include Swanson® frozen foods, Mrs.

Butterworth's, and Open Pit® barbecue sauces) generally contain

wheat-based ingredients in the form of modified food starches and other

thickening agents.

While our manufacturing facilities follow generally accepted good

manufacturing practices, we do not have the flexibility of segregating

production lines for the exclusive production of wheat-free items. We

recommend that you review the list of ingredients on the package prior

to

purchase to assure that you are meeting your specific dietary needs.

Since

we are constantly improving our products, ingredients may change from

time

to time.

We appreciate the time you've taken to share your specific concerns

with

us, because it helps us to become aware of consumer needs. We hope you

find this information helpful.

Sincerely,

Darlene Peters

Consumer Response Representative

Aha! Thanks, I always call in regards to "natural flavours" but I wasn't sure if that's what Richard meant. We don't have the same FALCPA (?) laws as you do up in here in the Great Sunny North. (It's not white right now) I thought the whole point of the new labelling law was for the "may contain" line, or is it that all top 8 allergens are labelled using the name of the actual allergen. Are they in bold?

Pure maple. Don't get sugar free as it most likely has aspartame. Pure syrup taste way better anyway and doesnt have that chemical after taste. it is about $5 a bottle though.

I grew up with the pure maple syrup, and I gotta say, when you're used to the pure stuff and then try the Mrs. Butterworth's or the Log Cabin, the chemical aftertaste is obvious--and makes you wonder why anyone buys them (okay, I know, I know, they're cheaper!).

Also, they're full of high-fructose corn syrup, which, despite massive advertising to convince us how good they are, raise your blood sugar but do not signal your pancreas to produce insulin--definite link with diabetes there, which is one of those autoimmune diseases we're at risk for.

The last time I read a Mrs. Butterworth's label, it listed Barley in parentheses under "Natural Flavors." While I appreciate the clear labeling on that bottle, I know not everyone is that good about putting Barley in the ingredients list. So I just avoid all artificial pancake syrups, and stick to pure maple syrup.

Maple syrup is not very expensive at Trader Joe's or at Costco. It can cost a fortune in other stores, for some reason.

I have liked all the pancake mixes I've tried so far... which I know have been Trader Joe's and Bob's Red Mill, and maybe Pamela's? I haven't done a comparison of them yet to pick a favorite.

I also like Trader Joe's frozen gluten-free toaster pancakes. In fact, I think I'll go make some of those with peanut butter for lunch (makes a great PB sandwich!).

I grew concerned after reading Richard's comments on Log Cabin because I had read that they were gluten free at another location. That is what I have been using daily for my very, very celiac toddler. She has shown no signs of reaction (and she is very sensitive) I immediately wrote to Log Cabin telling them that my celiac daughter uses their product and I needed confirmation and this is what came back to me within 24 hours:

Thank you for taking the time to email Consumer Insights.

We are always grateful when loyal consumers such as you take the time to

communicate their experience with us. It gives us great pride to have the

opportunity to interact with the individuals who use our products.

There is no gluten in the Log Cabin Butter Flavored Syrup, in LC Original,

LC Lite or LC Sugar Free syrups. Log Cabin Country Kitchen syrups are

also gluten free.

The caramel color used in LC original syrup does not contain any gluten

ingredients; product is 100% caramel color.

Sincerely,

Phallen Bischer

I am a HUGE fan of the Bob's Red Mill pancake mix. So far that's my favorite. I really can't even tell a difference between that and the "usual" brands as far as flavor goes! :)

This thread is from 2006, with a few updates in early 2009. Please be aware that gluten-free status information in old posts may no longer be correct, as ingredients change.

    • Started thinking the only cereal I allow in my house is Vans, they have a cinnamon one that is like a captain crunch with cinnamon, and a strawberry O type that I keep in stock for a friend that comes over sometimes and for my cousins littler girls who I end up babysitting sometimes. There was a coconut flake (corn flake knock) off I used to eat, but the company discontued it. There is a stuff called progranola from julians bakery made without grains that looks great but is a bit expensive at $9 a bag.
    • I would add your pharmacist to that that list and double check when getting a script filled that they checked to make sure it is safe. You will also need to tell any romatic partners as if they are gluten consumers they should brush their teeth before any kissing.
    • What you all are going through is normal. It took a long time for celiac to progress to the point where you were diagnosed and it takes time for the antibodies to resolve and for you to return to full health but you will. Eat as many whole foods as you can, stay away from oats and limit or delete dairy until you have healed for a while longer. Some of us will react to even gluten free oats so wait until you have been symptomless to try them out.  Sublingual B12 may help you heal a bit faster and do take a good gluten free vitamin. Be careful of the 'whole foods' vitamins as some will have barley or wheat grass in them. Eventually you will recognize when you get hit by CC, in my case I get a shift like I am falling sideways and an almost instant change in mood for the worse but it took a while to realize that was what was happening.  If you take any prescription meds do make sure that your pharmacist knows you are celiac and that they are checking all meds prescribed. If you haven't already do read the Newbie 101 thread at the top of the Coping section as it will have a lot of good information to keep you safe. Welcome to you all and I hope you heal quickly.
    • Did you take any vitamin D supplements when that tested low? Was anything done to correct the other deficiencies you had?  Do you take a multivitamin now?  I think correcting any vitamin and mineral deficiencies should be the first line of defense.   It's the simplest way of ruling out more sinister conditions.  Vitamin deficiency diseases can be mistaken for other diseases.  For example,  a deficiency in niacin (pellagra) can be mistaken for Celiac Disease. https://www.celiac.com/articles/24658/1/A-Differential-Diagnosis-How-Pellagra-Can-be-Confused-with-Celiac-Disease/Page1.html Cycling Lady broke vertebra in her neck throwing up.  She had anemia, a result of iron and B12 deficiencies.   I understand how you can just blow off the importance having adequate vitamin and mineral levels.  I did.  My doctor did, too. But when a friend suggested vitamin D deficiency might be causing my severe depression,  I begged my doctor to check my vitamin D level.  He ranted he couldn't make any money prescribing vitamins.  He finally agreed, but only because my insurance would pay for it and he could prescribe synthetic D2.  My level was six.  That's severely deficient.  He didn't bother with checking for other deficiencies.  I broke a leg, osteoporosis due to calcium deficiency.  That's lame.  I developed pellagra.  That's "slightly dead."  Then there was the BeriBeri episode with bouts of tachycardia. That's "almost dead." And from complications of vitamin A deficiency, I'm legally blind.  All within three years.  Yeah, sure, vitamins aren't so important.  Just ignore them, they'll go away.  Please rethink putting nutritional deficiencies on the back burner. Hope this helps. 😸
