Does All Pancake Syrup Have Gluten In It?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

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

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.

    • I just saw your profile says thalassemia. My doc blames part of the microcytic anemia on thalassemia trait even though all my thalassemia gene tests have come back negative (and I don't have the right ethnic background). In a way I am hoping it is a FODMAP (carbohydrate) sensitivity instead of a gluten allergy because at least with the FODMAP you just have to stay low FODMAP and don't have to worry about crumbs and gluten cross-contamination like with celiac. I will check back in in 6 months once I see whether there are specific foods I can't eat or if it really does come down to gluten  Thanks for your support!!
    • Good for you for trying to manage your health.  My only suggestion would be to find another doctor.  Obviously, he does not even follow standard recommendations for screening.  I would worry that he overlooks other things too.  It never hurts to get a second opinion.  Second opinions have saved my family from unwanted surgeries and incorrect treatment.   The IgA (Immunoglobulin A) Test, in the case of celiac disease testing,  is a control test.  If he had ordered it, you would have known if the results are valid or not.  Now you are left in diagnostic Limboland.  Again, my TTG was negative it has never been positive even in follow-up testing.   You can go gluten free for life.  My hubby did that 17 years ago some 12 years prior to my diagnosis (per the advice of his GP and my my allergist).  But he will be the first to tell you that I get way more support from family, friends and medical. I wish you well!  
    • Okay so I had a peanut butter milkshake from steak n shake last night. I'm nearly positive that every thing else I've had recently has been gluten free. I have been feeling like my stomach is acting up a bit lately, but after this milkshake it is so much more intense. I considered maybe I'm sensitive to dairy too, but in the last few days  I've had plenty of dairy that didn't make me react  like this. The steak n shake website didn't list any real specifics on ingredients for milkshakes. I read in other forums that some shakes use a malt mix or syrup ( which I didn't see mentioned on the site), but it is corn based. I called the my local steak n shake and the guy said he is "pretty sure" it's corn based.  I called the customer service line and they couldn't tell me if it was gluten free or not. I found ONE listing on a website that said all shakes were gluten free expect peanut butter and one other flavor. I know this seems like a lot for one shake, but I'm so tired of not knowing what makes me sick. Has anyone else had an experience with this or has anymore knowledge about steak and shakes products?
    • So my tTG-IgA result came back negative. Doc did not do the total IgA so I could be in the 2% false negative. However my ferritin continues to fall (at 25 now so getting borderline to need another iron infusion, 6 months ago it was 50) and reflux was keeping me up at night so after the blood test I went on a gluten free and low FODMAP diet. 6 days later my reflux is gone! I had no idea it could work that quickly. I still feel like there is a lump in my esophagus and have a bit of difficulty swallowing (think I still have irritation in that area) but no more acid and regurgitation! Also have not had a single episode of gas or urgency or days with 8 BMs.  It has only been 6 days so maybe I am just having a good spell but am going to continue gluten free and low FODMAP for a month and then see if there are any FODMAP foods I can eat (but not gluten unless my doc decides I should have a biopsy) (I miss pears and apples). I guess the real test is to see if my ferritin levels start to go up-testing again in 6 months. The diet is very restrictive but worth it if it gets rid of the reflux and other symptoms. BTW post-menopausal (and before that I had an IUD for 10 years TMI) so no periods to blame for chronic microcytic/hypochromic anemia. Doc says "that's normal for you, you just don't absorb iron very well".
    • Did you know that there are so many issues and questions surrounding celiac disease that even doctors who specialize in it find that the scientific data changes every six months, and this includes research data, new diagnostic and testing recommendations, and its connections to other diseases and conditions. In fact, many of us who think we have "arrived" and know it all might actually need a refresher course on the disease. View the full article
