I think Jello is safe but is Jello brand pudding safe? Anyone know?

Amy--It's not on my gluten-free list, but all Hunt's Snack Packs are. So are Kozy Shack Rice, Tapioca, Choc, Vanilla, Banana and Flan. Do yourself a favor and check out:

http://homepage.mac.com/sholland/celiac/GFfoodlist.pdf

It listed these items and 49 pages of other gluten-free mainstream foods. I don't go to the food store without it!

Jello Instant Pudding is safe; also, since it is a Kraft product, I read that all Kraft products will specify on the ingredients lable if a wheat product is used. I haven't checked the non-instant varieties but I know the instant mix is okay, although the buttterscotch flavor does list caramel color and doesn't state whether it is from barley or not. Will Kraft also specify foods that have barley ingredients in them or only wheat?

I don't know why Jello Instant Pudding didn't show up on my gluten-free list--it's that 49 page one--but I "googled" it and yup it is gluten-free. Don't know about the caramel color though, catfish, good point! Nothing came up on google for the butterscotch. Can't pass that new labeling law fast enough to suit me.

Just because a label will list a wheat ingredient doesn't mean it will list barley. Make sure you read the labels. I am trying to remember which kind of instant pudding I eat, but the brand slips my mind. I buy it at Wal Mart, it is a mainstream item, but I just can't think of the brand!

Even of Kraft products you need to read the labeling...they won't write in bold letters on the front of the container: DOES NOT CONTAIN WHEAT. However, flavorings are usually questionable as to being gluten-free or not and you need to call the company. With Kraft however, all flavorings and colorings are gluten-free unless they specifically write (in parens. next to it) wheat, or some other gluten-containing ingredient...in that way you should be able to tell if a product is gluten-free right from the label. At least, that's what I was told when I called about Crystal Light (drink mix) a week ago. By the way, it is gluten-free.

P.S. the barley is a good point...I'm not sure about it, but I believe the person said that it'll list the gluten-containing ingredient in parens next to it...then again, going by the labels isn't a good idea to begin with: labels are subject to change whenever the manufacturers feel like it -- and because it is "too expensive" to throw out printed labels, manufacturers are allowed to "run out" their labels, thereby leading us to believe that a product is gluten-free, although it may not be. Always be careful.

P.S.P.S. I have also heard that Kozy Shack is gluten-free...although I am going to stay dairy-limited until my symptoms completely go away so I haven't investigated yet. I remember eating Kozy Shack chocolate pudding before the gluten-free diet...it's delicious.... :)

Kozy Shack even lists on the package that it is gluten free. We tried some the other day, but the dairy caused a lot of my symptoms to return, so I think 6 months off dairy wasn't enough. celiac3270 you are smart to stay off dairy. I'm back to dairy free and was wondering about Jello pudding and if it possible to make it with any milk alternatives. It probably wouldn't taste the same. <_<

God bless,

Folks the Kraft page about gluten (I don't have the exact address; you'd have to go to kraft.com and search around) says they will clearly list any gluten, not just wheat. So if it had barley, which is very rare in itself, it would say so.

Mariann,

I just made a box of the pudding with soy milk because my 6 month old cant have cows milk yet. Well it never harden. Its still liquid in my fridge. Too bad he cant use a straw yet. lol I have alot of goats milk too, after I try making it with that I will let you know how it works.

I can't use Soymilk anyhow, but it is good to know that it won't set. I don't want to use the almond milk we drink for pudding, since it does have a strong almond taste and the kids don't want the pudding to taste like almonds. I thought I might try Mocha Mix. I make a milk alternative for baking and such with it at a mix of 1/4 Mocha Mix and 3/4 water. It does have a bit of a chemical taste that you have to get used to, but once you get past that it isn't bad. :rolleyes: We use the Mocha Mix Ice Cream and I sort of figured it would taste a bit like that...

Anyone tried pudding made with rice milk??

God bless,

Mariann

I don't know about other brands, but I have found that Jello brand instant pudding (not the kind that needs to cook, I haven't tried that) will set even with plain water although it tastes a little bit flat. Also, the mix has no milk in it. I imagine almond milk would work just fine with it.

    • Hi there I have this exact same thing.. however I don’t have celiac that I know of.. I found this when google searching for what the heck is wrong with my face.  I was wondering if you ever found out.. or if it just went away. Thanks
    • I have read the newbie 101 and have been careful about reading labels. I'm the only one that's gluten free in my household, so they could be contaminating me. I was eating gluten for 6 weeks after my blood test because it took that long to get an official diagnosis and my GP told me to still be eating it for the tests to be accurate. It was probably too soon to retest, but the test was accidentally ordered by the lab. I have been having an increase in joint pain over the last couple months and my rheumatologist ordered lab work. The lab saw the celiac panel had been ordered, but didn't see results so they added it on because they thought it still needed done.  My gut issues are starting to get better, but I'm thinking the joint pain might have been from the celiacs because all of the rheumatoid tests came back normal for the first time in twenty years.
    • Hi and Welcome to the Forum.  I am glad that you are here! As with a lot of things in life, try not to compare yourself to other people. You are trying to be the best version of yourself - not Jill, Annie, or Maya.  People make a lot of foolish decisions in the world and it does not mean that you should do it too.  Also, many people are gluten free for a lot of reasons that aren't celiac. One of my best friends has gluten sensitivity but not celiac.  He eats a lot of food that I won't touch due to possible cross contamination which he doesn't worry about too much.  Be true to yourself and keep your self healthy.  It is so hard, but it's better than getting sick! I hate not being able to partake in yummy food at parties, but I have learned what junk food I can eat.  I will make sure to buy some tortilla chips or Fritos for picnics.  I freeze gluten-free cupcakes to eat when we celebrate birthday parties (I can just take one out of the freezer and go).  I make sure to take a dish to share to potlucks.  I ask permission at restaurants and parties to bring my own food - no one has ever said no, and when there is a time to celebrate, I splurge on something I really like.  Fortunately, there are a lot of gluten-free foods that I really like. Do i miss pizza and really good burger? YES! And sometimes, I still feel awkward, but life is so much more than food.
    • If Small was going to get rid of anything in a takeaway meal, it would be the bread with all its dreaded gluten. However, many scientists and nutritionists argue gluten is not a problem for people who do not have celiac disease or who are not "gluten-sensitive". Massey University senior lecturer in food ...

    • Holy cow! You people are all angels! I have been suffering unbearably with these hot, itchy, and painful bumps on my scalp for a year now. Two doctors had no idea what it was, so I was sent to see a "dermatologist." To my utter shock, he told me I WAS DIRTY! HE TOLD ME TO WASH MY HAIR EVERY DAY with a shampoo called Nizoral, that it would take the itch away. He also prescribed a Vaseline based salve with a steroid in it. Guess what? It did nothing nor did the shampoo, and the more I washed my hair, the worse it gets. It's like torture, and I just can't stop scratching holes into my scalp. Then they scab over, then itch again. I was almost ready to shave my head, until I found this forum. I knew nothing about celiac disease, sensitivity to gluten... I knew nothing. Just so happened that my daughter found a paper talking about celiac during her visit to her GI yesterday. She brought it home for me, and demanded that I read it!  WHAM- a light come on, and I said to her... That IS what I have. I am going to my GP tomorrow to demand that I be tested for ciliac. I am rather terrified, as I am already a type 1 diabetic and have been on insulin for 52 years! I was blaming my diabetes the whole time. I have had a lower left leg amputation, and the last thing I need is to start getting this ungodly rash on my stump!!! Thank you everyone for all of the useful information you have provided in this blog. Maybe I'm not going to die after all! 😉
