Schwans Foods

I wanted to try Schwans Foods because we are moving deeper into the country and further from supermarkets and these people deliver. I just wondered if anyone has used their foods? I did go on their web site, they don't have a gluten-free list but you can read the labels. Has anyone experienced any cross contamination? I appreciate your input.

I use their asparagus spears, the broccoli-cauliflower-carrot mix, and I have tried the tamales which do not seem to bother me, but please be careful with them. The vegtables are very good. I haven't tried too many of their other items though. Good luck.

Judy05,

I called Schwan's headquarters after I was diagnosed to ask about their modified food starch and they stated it is from corn. So far I haven't had any trouble with CC, but I am still new and feeling icky some days (been on the diet for 2 1/2 months and got glutened for sure once). Thankfully most of their ice cream is gluten free - other than the brownie and confetti cake. :)

I have found a great replacement for the confetti cake - it is a Dryers light slow churned special edition (edys in some places). It is an American Idol flavor (you vote for your favorite) and it is called Take the Cake. It's cake flavored ice cream with frosting and sprinkles and it is not only light but AMAZING! I was so excited - if you look on the website and look up the flavor under ingrediants it actually says gluten free. My whole non gluten-free, non dieting family loves and that is too bad for me!

Schwans is still around? They used to be here in Manitoba, but I believe they got bought out I think almost 8 years ago. From what I remember is their food was delious. The vanilla ice cream is the best ice cream I have ever tasted. What part of the continent are they still in?

I know this most likely is a dead topic.

But.......

I order from Schwans all the time. They do not have a Gluten Free list, but will let you know about any product. Just call them and tell they that you are asking about the possible gluten in a product. They will have to transfer you to a "product specialist," I think they are called. They have me marked as someone that has called before and they aways seem to know why I am calling.

About the ice cream. When I called about it, they told me that ALL the ice cream is made in the place. That cross contamination is a big problem. They recommended that I do not eat any of the ice cream.

You can read ingredients on line. I don't think they make any gluten-free claims.

    • I'm glad you have a diagnosis.  Fibromyalgia is recognized by western medicine, FDA has even approved several drugs for its treatment.  This article from the NIH is interesting, saying that not all doctors are familiar with it ( those are probably the ones who minimize it).   I hope your health improves now that you know what you have and can begin to do something for it. https://www.niams.nih.gov/health_info/fibromyalgia/#c
    • Hi Casy and welcome! I say welcome, you've been here before! Welcome back then You probably know already that you tick a lot of the celiac boxes (so answer to a) is no you're not crazy ). It's a bugger to diagnose however and you have to be eating gluten for the tests to work. So your previous test when the mess hall diet was eggs rice and chicken may not have been accurate.  I collected some faqs on the diagnosis process sometime ago. They're here along with a couple of links that may be of use in regard to the second question about the tests available:  There's also the board FAQ stickied above of course: https://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/announcement/3-frequently-asked-questions-about-celiac-disease/  If I were you I'd be tempted to try cutting gluten. My advice would be not to do that at least just yet - if the test comes back positive they may want to run an endoscopy or other blood test. It's not pleasant to go back on it if its a problem for you, the 'gluten challenge' in other words.  One final point, I don't know what a positive diagnosis would do for your military career prospects. Maybe thats something you should think about or discuss with someone in confidence? The diagnosis can't do much for you practically, treatment is to not consume gluten. So you may be able to not pursue the diagnosis and just do your own test with avoiding gluten. Although I don't know how practical that is with MRE's etc... There may be others here who can help with that question.  Oh and theres a genetic element, so your son's GI issues may also be related... Best of luck! Matt  
    • Perhaps you were run down and your immune system was compromised? Here's a good paper on the subject: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3579488/ Not much definitive, but this for instance is interesting: In my own case I know that under gluten I lived for years with an impaired immune system. Any cold going around I got it and kept it for longer than everyone else. I was often 'under the weather' and I had unexplained urinary infections etc. The skin issues were one part of that and the SD the most visible. So many things resolved when going gluten free that I was upset that the SD, whilst improving, didn't also disappear.  I saw a consultant dermatologist and he diagnosed it and said that Nizoral had the best chance of impacting on it - in fact its the active ingredient: ketoconazole that you need to look for: I only use the shampoo now if its bad and it isn't too bad at all, I think because I'm broadly healthy, eating well and strict on the diet. I have an itchy scalp and occasional spots at bottom of scalp but I can always go back to the shampoo if needed. Like you I have a couple of others sat around for an alternative.  My research has suggested its a case of treating symptoms and staying well, but its control rather than cure.  Sorry!  
    • Yours looks safe I was using paleo pro back then and the company changed from gluten free to manufactured in the same facility as.
    • Hello all! Does anyone take the Claritin non drowsy reditabs for indoor and outdoor allergies? Its the dissolvable ones. I was prescribed loratadine as prescription but pharmacist told me the pill form had gluten in its ingredients and that this Claritin reditabs were gluten free. I will call manufacture company as well just wanted to see if my fellow celiacs took this or what type of allergy medicine do you guys take? Any advice is helpful. Also for my post nasal drip I was prescribed Fluticasone Propionate Nasal spray. I have yet to use this as it is the generic equivalent for Flonase. Anyone know if it is gluten free? The manufacturing company said they could not state if it was free of gluten because they do not test it but she did say nothing in the inactive ingredients looks like it contains gluten???? I really  need to you a nasal spray as I cannot breathe or swallow due to allergies in the air.
