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.

    • Thank you for posting this I've never been to South America, it's the only continent, bar the poles, I've yet to visit. It's really nice to read that my gluten sensitivity hasn't ruled it out. Maybe I'll get to the land of Luis Suarez yet!
    • I know this post is a year ago... however it is still on the first page of the travel section!  I am from Uruguay, (South America) and I can answer this question for people that may look at it in the future. As a South American -  I can say that the cuisine varies greatly.  In cities, you shouldn't have any more than the normal amount of difficulty finding food.  For example, in Montevideo, the city I am from, you'll have no problem finding dedicated entire Celiac stores.  Meat is a large part of restaurant menus, so parilladas (similar in theory to steakhouses, would be very easy to navigate).  Uruguayans do eat a lot of pastries, and just like in the states... Most mainstream bakeries are not gluten free, but like I mentioned there are places that specialize.  In Uruguay, there is knowledge of Celiac and a large health awareness.  Some of the foods can be costly, cost of living in general is not low. In large swaths of South America, the foods you mentioned - Potatoes, rice, meat, etc are abundant, as are fresh fruits and veggies.  Avoiding corn does make it tricky.  Peru can be a great place for non-gluten eaters. Peru uses very little gluten (they are the original quinoa eaters) but there is a lot of corn in the diet (and since you are corn sensitive, that would be a food you would need to navigate). Latin America spread over two continents! In this area you will find a great variety in cultures, cuisines, and knowledge of celiac.  There is no reason why If you want to experience Latin America, that you have to rule out an entire region of the world because of Celiac.  Navigating it will be different, but it is doable!
    • Recently diagnosed last week does the pain ever get better??
    • George, i am sorry that you are not feeling well!  ☹️  I am not a doctor, but just trying out drugs to stop your symptoms just seems like a band aid  approach.  It sounds like he suspects IBS which is really, in my opinion, "I be stumped".  Has inflammatory bowel disorder (IBD) (more lovely autoimmune disorders) been ruled out?  This includes both Crohn's and Colitis.  My niece was diagnosed with Crohn's finally with a pill camera after all other tests were given.  The damage was not within reach of any scope.  I am just throwing out suggestions.  Hopefully, you and your doctor will figure it out soon!  
    • Celiac disease is an autoimmune disease that happens to have a known trigger -- gluten.  Flare-ups develop  (antibodies) causing damage. Not just in the small intestine, but systemically.  One gluten exposure can cause antibodies to increase for days or months!   Antibodies are being measured during the celiac blood tests.   If there is no gluten exposure, there will be no antibodies.  These antibodies can come down in some people in as little as two weeks.  Recommendations require gluten 2 to 4 weeks daily for the biopsies taken via endoscopy in order to be sure to catch damage, but 8 to 12 weeks for the blood tests.   The endoscopy is considered the "gold standard" in helping to diagnose celiac disease, but there are other things that can damage the small intestine.  So, the blood test helps solidify the diagnosis.   So, if you want a good result on your endoscopy, you need to be eating gluten daily for two week prior at a minimum.  I know it is tough and you are feeling sick.  Wish there was a better way to catch active celiac disease.
