I don't know what sour patch kids are, but sugar itself shouldn't have gluten issues. Domino is gluten-free. I suspect it's something else in there if it's a processed candy. Good luck. Hopefully others will post.

If sugar bothers you, you may have a Candida yeast overgrowth. Candida feeds on sugar, and causes a host of physical symptoms. There is a home test that you can do, called the saliva test. Search under "Candida saliva test" or "Candida spit test. That should tell you how to do it. If you do have it, the best product out there to get rid of Candida is called Threelac. It's expensive, but it works very well. It could just be that sour patch kids are not gluten-free, but that I don't know. Good luck.

Do Sour Patch Kids contain gluten?

No, Sour Patch Kids do not contain gluten. Manufacturing lines and ingredients may change from time to time. As such, it is recommended that you carefully review the product packaging for ingredient declarations prior to each use.

from Schweppes FAQ page.

I guess those little sour patch kids are on a gluten-free diet :P

Oh man, I was wondering the same thing!

I've had a sugar obsession as of late and all my favorite candies have been making me miserable every time: swedish fish, sour patch, gummy worms, all of it. I got to thinking sugar was gluteny too...

That Candida business is scaring me. I can't tell if I'm a hypochondriac or if I've really got multiple issues.

sugar doesn't give me gastro problems as long as there is no gluten in it, however I DO have a serious problem with sugar. Whenever I eat sugar, even if it isn't very much, I become depressed the next day. The more I have, the worse the depression is. It's terrible! Even before I discovered my gluten intolerance I knew that sugar negatively effected me and I try to avoid it at all costs!

I'm not sure about the situation in North America, but here in Ireland jelly sweets (candy)

can be dusted with flour to stop them sticking together.

In most cases they use cornflour (starch) but a few use wheat flour!

Even if cornflour is used, and it was milled alongside cereal crops there could be cross-contamination, so accordingly we are all very careful.

Also Coeliac (celiac) Disease is linked to Type 1 Diabetes.

In general sugar is a horrible thing to ingest. As a human, it's impossible to avoid or not have a craving for it. I react similarly to you. yesterday I ate a bag of swedish fish and a half hour later i was irritated, tired, achy and thirsty. I'm not sure if it would be a candida problem but it's definitely sugar related. This is a link to what sugar does to your body (and it'll make you want to avoid sugar altogether!):

I have terrible problems when I injest sugar. Some digestive problems, but mainly problems with my moods and emotions. I actually have these problems when I take in too much of anything sweet. I avoid honey, cane sugar, maple syrup, fruit juices, or any other concentrated form of sugar. I feel so much better both physically and emotionally when I eat this way.

If you have candida and don't get rid of it, you'll never get better. It's definitely worth checking out. Just a side note, Threelac works well for many people, but it made me worse. Not really sure why.

    • Thank you for your reply.  I did make sure to keep eating gluten before getting tested. I'm still unsure whether or not I should ask my doctor to run the rest of the tests in the celiac panel.  
    • LOL, re: trousers vs. pants.   Here in the US, trousers are a specific kind of pants/slacks, with a looser fit and often with pleats in the front.   I also read that Vit D helps digestion;  can't recall the links, but likely within Gundry's writings about lectin.   My Dr. just told me to resume 2000 IU per day, and I do think it's made a slight difference. Have also read that bone broth is helpful, its gelatinous nature supposedly coats the stomach.   I know bone broth has not been formally studied much, but again, probably can't hurt and might help.
    • I'd try the gluten free diet for a few months to see if that helps at all. Can't hurt. If it doesn't help I'd try a low FODMAP meat and veggies diet.
    • A good amount of the neurological effects from celiac are also related to nutrient deficiencies caused by malabsorbtion from damaged intestines and the fact that most gluten-free foods are not fortified and your net eating many grains. You sound good about the CC and everything and seem to be taking percations goods, I still use freezer paper for a clean safe work surface even in my gluten free home lol. Anyway top things to look for and consider are magnesium and B vitamin deficiencies . I take my in a drink to avoid pills and the sublingual forms are more easily absorbed by the body. I normally suggest 2 brand or forms of magnesium and you need to find the one that works for you there. They are Natural Vitality Calm, a magnesium citrate in a powder, you add it to a warm drink let it fizz and drink it. Magnesium citrate can be a bit harsh on some peoples guts, I suggest you start off with 1/4 tsp and work your way up to the full dose over a week, if you get D then your taking too much and need to back down or the citrate version might be too rough for you. In which case I suggest Doctors Best, bit more off tasting and mixes best with a juice but with the powdered form of it you do not have to worry about digestion issues, I just found the citrate to seem to help with my nerve issues more. B Vitamins, I take Liquid Health Stress & Energy and the Neurological Support, I take 1 tbsp of each 2-3 times a day before meals. Really helps with everything and being in liquid forms I just add to tea and drink it. There are many other vitamins to look into and we each have ones we have issues with more then others, getting tested might help, NOTE magnesium and B vitamins sometimes show normal but you will still find you need supplementation...bit of a odd thing I found. Yeah the neurological effects are  huge thing with me as my issues with this disease cause my immune system to attack my nervous system and brain....accumulated brain and nerve damage over the years. Had a whole mental trauma issues with them, my gastro issues back then were mostly just constipation. NOW days I get the Vomiting, D, gas, bloat, and then constipation for a week along with neurological issues which NOW if I get exposed to eating straight gluten (happened twice in 3 years to this extent) I loose motor control and collapse unable to move, normally while vomiting violently to the point of blood coming up (this was what happened last June 2016 after eating out).  
    • Started thinking the only cereal I allow in my house is Vans, they have a cinnamon one that is like a captain crunch with cinnamon, and a strawberry O type that I keep in stock for a friend that comes over sometimes and for my cousins littler girls who I end up babysitting sometimes. There was a coconut flake (corn flake knock) off I used to eat, but the company discontued it. There is a stuff called progranola from julians bakery made without grains that looks great but is a bit expensive at $9 a bag.
