Hi there!

Does anyone know if Smuckers Sugar Free Strawberry Preserves are gluten-free? Or Land O Lakes Light Butter with Canola Oil?

Thanks!

Jaimi

Smuckers: Smuckers has temporarily withdrawn its list of gluten free foods. According to the company, the jams, jellies, spreads, syrups, magic shell products and preserves do NOT contain any wheat, rye, oats, barley, spelt, triticale or other gluten containing grains. However, they will not call them gluten free until they can double check the possibility of cross-contamination of raw materials they receive from outside suppliers. They hope to have this information in a few more months. Their natural peanut butter IS gluten free and there is no cross contamination, according to the manufacturer.

That is the last update I have from them, last summer.

I have the same response from them, also from last year.

I have been talking to a Christine at Smuckers since November. They have been testing all of their products and it sounds like they wanted to be sure they gave responsible information. I talked with her late last thursday and asked her to send me an email that I could post here of all their products that so far have tested gluten free. What she had told me so far is that their low sugar jams are ok which is a product I use. Also their berry flavored pancake syrups are ok too which is another thing we use. Their Adams and Jiff and other natural peanut butters are gluten free. Also I don't have to keep Adams in the fridge anymore!

If I recall correctly the problem is the jellies may contain wheat. I have had several conversations with Christine and she calls me when she finds out new updated info (she even keeps a sticky with my name and phone number on her monitor). I am very concerned about CC and so are they and they wanted to make sure that when they say it is gluten free it really is. They have gone back to their vendors and done inspections and tests. I was impressed.

When I get more infor I will pass it on.

    • This is all so interesting. Thank you all for responding, you've helped me.
    • You could try removing all grain and dairy and see if that helps. Processed foods can have cross contamination.  Lactose intolerance is common with celiac disease.  Fruits are high in fructose and it can be difficult for some people to digest fructose if they have digestive problems. Vegetables are healthy and nutritious.
    • Yeah with the chocolate, I can attest that it really helps with ones mood, problem is most cocoa is processed and defatted, your best best are RAW cocoa from BigTree, Cocoa Nibs, or my personal favorite Crio Bru which is ground cocoa nibs that are meant as a coffee replacement >.> I eat them by the hand full with a bit of sweetener or over food/deserts as a sprinkle They have different roast, and origin beans so you can get varied flavors.  My life has been really hectic as of late, I manage it by consuming a ton of cocoa, and hemp, I honestly can not get depressed if I tried or sad. I just am OH WELL with everything. https://www.criobru.com/shop/
    • I don't know for sure but if you have a emotional roller coaster it may be do to food sensitivities.  The pattern however may be difficult to figure out.  I also removed all grains and milk from my diet. I limit my fruit and fructose consumption (fructose binds with tryptophan in the gut) and don't eat processed food. That might be something you could try. Alcohol can be problematic as well as a diet too high in protein or fat.  Vegetables may be your best bet as far as a healthy nutritious diet.  I take glutamine powder as unbound glutamine is the preferred food for the cells that line the intestine. It is known to help with "leaky gut syndrome."  I think it really helps!!! Glutamine powder is gluten free and it may help repair damage to the brain blood barrier as well.  I also am experimenting with dark cocoa powder as it is rich in antioxidants and flavinoids which can help with healing and improving mood.  Another option would be to research the AIP diet. 
    • While celiac is primarily a genetic disease, there are cases of it appearing in people that have NO genetic history of it, nor the genes for it and it develops as a complete mutation caused by a trigger normally associated with some kind of shock or trauma to the immune system. There the same theory that that applies to bringing out the dormant gene for the disease applies that when the body and immune system is under shock or stress, and consuming gluten the body is easily confused and slips up identifying the gluten proteins as harmful and developing antibodies for them (more so common if you have another AI issue and the body is already under stress).....and like a kind of messed up vaccine you from then on pretty much have it....NOTE this is based off a article I read a while back and I can not quote sources or confirm my wording. PLEASE if anyone can correct this if I am wrong or messed up on my memory.
