Does anyone know if the Dove dark chocolate ice cream bars are gluten free?

If these are the ingredients:

CREAM, SKIM MILK, MILK, SUGAR, CORN SYRUP, NATURAL FLAVOR, MONO AND DIGLYCERIDES, CAROB BEAN GUM, GUAR GUM, EGG YOLKS, CARRAGEENAN, BETA CAROTENE. COATING: SEMISWEET CHOCOLATE (SUGAR, CHOCOLATE PROCESSED WITH ALKALI, CHOCOLATE, COCOA BUTTER, MILKFAT, SOY LECITHIN, NATURAL AND ARTIFICIAL FLAVORS), COCONUT OIL, PALM OIL.

I would consider it safe.

Thank you for your replies. I always read the ingredients, but I'm still trying to learn them all. I just was in the mood for one.

Me too, but since my favorite which is Stroh's Caramel Nut Cluster can't guarantee CC, I've sort of been eating Edy's. I just don't like it as well.

Those particular one's probably are, but I'm 99% sure my wife bought me a Dove flavor recently that wasn't. Had Malt Flavoring (often to thing to watch for in Ice cream and other sweets.)

She is pretty careful when shopping, lucky me, so often I don't even double check if it makes it on my gluten free shelf, or the fridge (which is entirely gluten free except for bread and salad dressings). For whatever reason I checked, and was glad I did!

Good to know that. I'm hooked on the dark chocolate covered vanilla ones. I didn't see malt flavoring on the list of ingredients.

I would not consider it safe, as chocolate can easily have undeclared barely malt (think of the old labeling on Lindt chocolate). Since barley is not one of the "Big Eight" allergens, it's not required to be disclosed if present in any amount, as wheat is.

However, Dove is made by M & M/Mars which does have a policy of declaring gluten on its labels. Knowing this, I would eat it.

But I won't consider any chocolate safe without resolving the labeling/barley malt issue.

If you never ate chocolate with barley malt in it keep in mind that it has a distinctive flavor - there's a underlying grain flavor in the chocolate so if you get malted chocolate by error keep that in mind. I noticed German chocolates use the barley additive.

    • BOBS RED mill makes an all purpose flour with no rice  try Quinoa flour  buckwheat flour tapioca  chic pea flour coconut flour almond meal ground into a flour  flax meal all these things make great " toast"  and healthy alternatives to too much rice flour yummy
    • Oh yeah. I'm 6 months in and still have bad days, even though I know I'm not eating gluten. It takes a long time to heal. I have been on here a lot in the past 6 months venting because I didn't feel good. I just posted today about how tired I still am. Everyone has basically said the same thing - give it time. Be patient. It can take a long time. Some people said it can take a year. Hang in there.
    • Ok, so I have another question for all of you professional Celiacs. I read an article recently that talked about a study that was done on people with Celiac's disease, which said that some of them (a small number) had high levels of arsenic in their systems because of all of the rice products that they eat. Now, I don't eat a ton of rice, but we do have gluten-free pasta a couple times a week, my son and I like rice Chex, and I know there's brown rice flour in the pizza crusts I use and in the gluten-free bread that I eat. How worried about arsenic poisoning do we need to be? I'm not downing rice at every meal but I do eat it daily, I'm sure. I rarely eat rice, rice. Usually it's the rice flour that's in things. Is this one more thing to keep me up at night? Because now I'm like, "Oh this is great. I'm trading gluten for arsenic." I need to eat carbs. If I just eat fruits and veggies and meat I'll lose weight which stresses me out. I want to be able to eat toast with peanut butter and eggs but I worry my toast is killing me. Am I being a little dramatic.
    • So I've been gluten free for 6 months. I gave it up the day of my endoscopy and never looked back. I was a fairly silent Celiac. My blood work was always normal (never anemic, malnourished), I didn't have all the horrible symptoms that others do. I think I caught it early and that those things were definitely coming. Since going gluten-free I notice that my belly is better. I still have days where it's not great, but in the last month I've noticed that it's consistently pretty good. I don't hardly ever get stomach aches. I've lost 16 lbs and I'm never bloated. Those things are good. But, aside from that, I don't feel much different than I did before. I'm still tired a lot. But I have two kids under 4 and I run a non-profit. I have horrible anxiety and that's only increased since finding out about my Celiac (it's health anxiety and it freaked me out big time that I have an AI disorder). I feel like my complexion looks the same (never had an issue with that).  I just read stories on here that talk about how the brain fog lifted quickly, or how people don't feel tired anymore, etc. I'm still a zombie sometimes. Has anyone else has this experience? Maybe my body was doing such a good job compensating for my Celiac that I wasn't really very symptomatic to begin with - and that the tiredness I feel isn't due to gluten.  Oh, FYI, I had a full thyroid panel done in December and it was all normal. 
    • Your daughter could have non celiac gluten sensitivity. That would correspond to negative celiac tests coupled with positive reaction to the gluten free diet. Whilst there are similarities to celiac presentation it appears that neuro symptoms are more common in ncgs patients.  That seems to be the case for me anyway!  The condition is as yet poorly understood but there is progress being made, check out a topic I just started on the pre diagnosis thread with some info and links.  The remarks by umberto Volta in particular are just about the best summation I've yet seen on where the research is at.  I will post a link later.
