All of the varieties of M &M's are gluten-free except the Crispy in the blue package (not even sure they make it anymore though). Enjoy!!

My personal favorites are peanut butter and almond :)

I love M & Ms but thought I checked and they were not OK. Are the Australian M& Ms different to the USA ones ? Chocolate covered in candy?

Good question, but I don't have an answer for you. I do know that M & Ms are safe in Canada.

They sound the same, deffinately Chocolate covered in candy with the letter M on them. Also peanuts covered in candy with the M on them. Both are gluten free in Canada and I'm pretty sure the US as well. Maybe check the bag and see where they are made. If they are imported from here, they are likely just fine.

Unfortunately M & Ms in Australia are NOT gluten free - stupid but they use glucose made from wheat. You'd think they'd make them the same everywhere, but not so. I get friends in Canada to send me m & ms so I get to eat them every few months.

So, I ate M & Ms yesterday, and I had a horrible reaction. I know that the M & Ms are gluten free, but I think they may have been cross-contaminated. Another possibility, though, is that, since I've only been on the Gluten-free diet for a short period of time, my body may still be sensitive to that kind of food. I'm also lactose intolerant, but this reaction was the kind I get when I eat gluten, not lactose. So I think it's probably just due to how little I've healed so far. I really hope that I'll be able to eat M & Ms eventually, though, since they're some of my favourite chocolates :).

    • Thanks for the responses raven and cyclinglady!  I guess we just have to wait.  Is it wrong that I want there to be no question that its celiac?  She has had so many symptoms for awhile now--seemingly increasing--but I want there to be no question in her mind that she needs to be gluten-free--you know? For now we are working on eating gluten-free but I haven't really tackled the whole cross-contamination thing yet and looking into my freezer, fridge and pantry I have a decent amount of gluten that the rest of us will eat.  Then I guess I'll decide how gluten-free the rest of us should be. On a side note--the gi ran a bunch of tests prior to the biopsy--I haven't seen the results--but they mentioned over the phone that her white blood cells were high--maybe due to celiac?

    • Sorry you're feeling poorly Have you seen this page: https://www.peoplespharmacy.com/2015/07/27/getting-off-ppis-can-be-a-challenge/ I think you can get gluten free DGL, maybe worth a try?
    • I could be wrong but Methotrexate is an immune suppressant so it may affect Celiac testing. I have seen this mistake made with other people with RA. It may be that the only way you will know if it will help is to continue eating gluten free for awhile and see how well it does with the pain levels you have.  Or...have the biopsy.  But, again, will the medication affect that also?
    • Welcome! YES! Some of us who have problems with gluten do not test positive to celiac tests. There is a term for this, non celiac gluten sensitive NCGS and this could explain your symptoms. Having said that, it would be a good idea if you hunted down the actual results of your celiac tests and posted them here. It's possible that your doctors didn't perform the full range of tests and some celiacs only test positive to one of these.  I would first double check on the tests, but once that's resolved you could keep a food diary, a very simple not of what you eat, when you eat it and how you feel. You then introduce a new food perhaps one week at a time and monitor the results. I would start with dairy but I don't know that there's a right or wrong answer. Best of luck. I think regardless of testing you've probably found an answer and that you will probably want to stay gluten free.  Either way you've found a good site and you will have lots of support if you need it Good luck.
