Breyers Ice Cream

19 posts in this topic

Last night i ate some breyers - all natural , lactose free vanilla ice cream. I put a little strawberry jam in it for some flavor. Almost instantly after finishing it my stomach acted up. The pain was horrible.

Now it is supposed to be gluten free-- Is there a chance it had some in it anyway?>

Any time you eat any processed food there's a chance gluten slipped in, but I would think with the vanilla ice cream the chances would be very slim. Any chance there were bread crumbs in the jam?

Breyers makes lactose free ice cream? :o:lol: Yay!

Perhaps you are sensitive to casein as well as lactose? Or it could very well be the bread crumbs as Lovegrov suggested.

I had written to Breyers this week, I thought I would share their response. -Jessica :rolleyes:

Dear Jessica,

Thank you for your recent inquiry about gluten in Good Humor-Breyers products.

We currently do not have a gluten list, and are recommending consumers read the

ingredient label on our cartons.  If wheat, barley, or rye were used in a

product, it would be clearly listed.  The flavorings may contain ethyl alcohol.

However, we cannot guarantee from which grain the alcohol was derived.

Because the alcohol used in our products is distilled, there are no proteins

present and would not pose a threat to anyone who is gluten intolerant.

Thank you.

This is just a theory, but perhaps the lactose free variety is not gluten-free? I had read somewhere to be very careful of the sugar-free, low-fat or otherwise different varieties of safe foods because their formulations are completely different. I know that the regular Breyer's full-fat stuff is gluten-free because I have eaten them (and the label is VERY simple on those - no big words!) but not so sure about the "altered" ones.

Cass, if you're going to try to convince us that beef and milk are causing brittle bones, I think you need a better source that The Truth Seeker. I mean there's some flat-out nutty, tinfoil hat stuff there. Israel was founded not as a Jewish state but as an occult state? It wasn't a plane that hit the Pentagon on Sept. 11?

Is Earth still round or is it flat again?

Gimme a break.

Hum, is that something like the Weekly World News? :rolleyes:

BTW, that article comes from PETA, not quite an unbiased source

celiacs already have largely restricted diets/more expensive diets than most.

I think the person who posted the anti dairy anti meat statement may be a "troll"...look at the date they signed up..one day prior to posting. Someone's on a mission, me thinks.

BUT....also, I'm not so sure I'd take a doctors advice as gospel either. Look at how long it's taking the medical profession to understand gluten intolerance. They also USED to claim that calcium based kidney stones were from eating too much dairy when in fact it's just the opposite.

I take everything under advisement and do my own research to come to my own conclusions. Sometimes they coincide with the docs...sometimes they don't.

-------

Back to the main question regarding the ice cream. I'd be inclined to think that perhaps the contamination came from the jam as well. I've never had trouble with Breyers ice cream.... Sometimes when I eat something for the first time, I have an adverse reaction to it as well.....Along with being lactose free, it wasn't sugar free by chance was it?

I just want to say that Milk is the number 1 helping cause for ousteoperiosis.

Somebody who goes to forums and writes inflammatory posts to stir up trouble. On political web sites conservatives will troll liberal sites and vice versa trying to sow dissension or just make the site look dumb. This troll might or might not actually have celiac but apparently DOES have some sort of dietary agenda.

Oh, thanks. I am pretty sure I know what "agenda" they have. It is pretty sad to do that here, people who have a serious illness and need support.

I agree! This person is on just about every thread preaching a ridiculous "eat hardly anything" diet to people who are looking for positive ways to deal with a difficult disease. I've never heard of a Troll before, but it makes perfect sense...and gets on my nerves!

Back to the original thread ...

I too have had an awfull belly almost immediatley with breyers ice cream but only when I had it on an empty stomach. When I've had a small serving as a dessert, I have had no problem. Unusally have about a 1/3 cup serving as not to push the issue and that helps me.

Yes, I figured that she had an agenda now that she's avoided posting. Oh well, we don't need four-letter-word people on this message board! The community is perfect the way it is :)

I bet she didn't really have Celiac anyway.

Beat the Wheat (barley, rye, oats and malt),

    • It seems like you really need a concrete or near concrete answer so I would say maybe you ought to get the gene testing. Then you can decide on the gluten challenge.   Thanks! I am convinced our dogs are there waiting for us. Meanwhile they are playing, running, laughing, barking & chasing. I have another favorite quote dealing with dogs: "If a dog will not come to you after having looked you in the face, you should go home & examine your conscience."  ~~~ Woodrow Wilson ~~~
    • I can't help thinking that all of this would be so much easier if the doctor I went to 10 years ago would have done testing for celiac, rather than tell me I probably should avoid gluten. He was looking to sell allergy shots and hormone treatment, he had nothing to gain from me being diagnosed celiac. I've been messing around ever since, sort-of-most-of the time being gluten free but never being strict about it. I really feel like three months of eating gluten would do my body a lot of permanent damage. I've got elevated liver enzymes for the third time since 2008 and no cause can be found which might be good, I guess. I wonder if it would be reasonable to do the HLA testing first, to decide if I really need to do the gluten challenge. If the biopsy is negative, that is. Squirmingitch, love your tag line about dogs in heaven. We lost the best dog ever last December. I sure hope all my dogs are there waiting for me!
    • Most (90%-95%) patients with celiac disease have 1 or 2 copies of HLA-DQ2 haplotype (see below), while the remainder have HLA-DQ8 haplotype. Rare exceptions to these associations have been occasionally seen. In 1 study of celiac disease, only 0.7% of patients with celiac disease lacked the HLA alleles mentioned above. Results are reported as permissive, nonpermissive, or equivocal gene pairs. From: http://www.mayomedicallaboratories.com/test-catalog/Clinical+and+Interpretive/88906  
    • This is not quite as cut & dried as it sounds. Although rare, there are diagnosed celiacs who do not have either of those genes. Ravenwoodglass, who posted above, is one of those people. I think she has double DQ9 genes? Am I right Raven?  My point is, that getting the gene testing is not an absolute determination either way.
    • Why yes it is! jmg and myself are NCIS, I mean NCGS specialist/experts or is it NCGI people ourselves. posterboy,
