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.

    • We are not doctors, but based on the results you provided, you tested negative on the celiac screening test.  You could ask for the entire celiac blood panel to help rule out celiac disease.  The other IgA that was high?  It normally is given as a control test for the TTG IgA test (meaning if the celiac test results are valid).  In your case, the TTG IgA test works.  Outside of celiac disease, you might have some infection.  Discuss this with your doctor as he has access to your entire medical file.  I would not worry about it though over the weekend!  
    • See: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/can-a-skin-biopsy-for-dermatitis-herpetiformis-dh-confirm-celiac-disease-or-is-an-endoscopy-still-needed/ Take a copy of that with you or mail it to the doc. How many endoscopic biopsies did they take? Those with dh tend to have patchier damage than "normal" celiacs.
    • Ironictruth, I think that is a very insightful thought. since different antibodies present for different body systems all the ways gluten affects the body is still not well understood. Here is a case of presumably someone who had the gut damage of a celiac but also had neurological damage. http://www.nature.com/nrneurol/journal/v3/n10/full/ncpneuro0631.html entitled "A case of celiac disease mimicking amyotrophic lateral sclerosis" so it has happened in the literal but since this is not well understood people don't make the connection today. I would also point you to this hindawi article on the "Lesson's learned from Pellagra" but I am afraid we haven' learn't yet. https://www.hindawi.com/journals/cggr/2012/302875/ notice specially the 2.1 section clinical feature of pellagra and all the neurological symptom's once associated with a Pellagra patient. quoting "The neurological manifestation did not stop there because other degenerative conditions, such as an amyotrophic lateral sclerosis-like picture, were described, with fasciculation of the tongue and upper and lower motor neuron signs. Cerebellar syndromes occurred and vertigo was frequent. Headaches, sensory and pain syndromes, epilepsy, and involuntary movements were noted as well as sleep disturbances. Cord lesions were also seen, as was optic atrophy, so there were multiple sclerosis (MS), like variants." which tells me doctor's don't recognize pellagra today when they see it because they haven't seen it in 75+ years. ***this is not medical advice but read the hindawi journal on lesson's learned and I think you will see yourself in their many descriptions of all the way Pellagra presents itself to doctor's and patients still suffering today and you can see why it (like celiac) is hard to pin down today because it presents in so many ways it can be soo overwhelming and since vitamins are not a focus anymore today (especially b-vitamins) that today I believe we are doomed to repeat history's lessons unless the current generation learns again all the ways pellagra presents itself today. good luck on your continued journey. posterboy by the grace of God,  
    • after going gluten-free I felt great! but lately I have been feeling bad. the gluten symptoms are still gone, but now I am weak, foggy,  any ideas? doc did a full blood work up, all came back normal
    • Estes, I want to respond to your question might it be Pellagra instead? It might be but it will be hard to prove by testing. See my response to this question from an earlier thread. The in International Journal of Celiac disease noticed this connection in 58% of Celiac's. Here is the link http://pubs.sciepub.com/ijcd/3/1/6/ quoting  (My words Pellagra is) "Considered now as a vitamin deficiency state, pellagra has been linked to a chronic lack of niacin (vitamin B3 or nicotinic acid), an important constituent of coenzyme I and coenzyme II. Its clinical map is believed to include the classic 3 Ds: Dermatitis, Dementia and Diarrhea. The order of appearance and severity of these three sub-syndromes varies and some may not show at all."  and their note  that "Unfortunately, the patient was not diagnosed biochemically as pellagra and died before gluten free diet was initiated." and also notice this research as first pointed out by Knitty Kitty https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/2084620 People who had pellagra and esophagitis showed improvemnt in their condition in only a week of supplementation. But they stopped too soon. The ajcn link quoted in an earlier response noted clinical remission after 3 weeks of 3/day supplementation with Niacinamide plus a B-complex and a high quality niacin containing food regimen for 3 more months to ensure complete remission. Here is the link again. http://ajcn.nutrition.org/content/85/1/218.full the problem most people have today most people wont take a vitamin that long (3 months) or that frequent (2 to 3 daily) to completely recover. but we know even if you take a  b-complex with as little as 100mg Niacinamide 3/day for a month many of our GI problems will improve because it is the clinical response to the vitamin that confirms the diagnosis. I think of a 3 month cycle as more cautious to avoid someone relapsing back into sub-clinical pellagra but if that is too aggressive in your mind then take it (Niacinamide) for only a month 2 to 3/daily to see if it doesn't help is worth a try  I think. My experience with B-vitamins tells me 3 months is ideal because that repletes our storage sites in the liver.  You should probably take this/is (Niacinamide) with a B-complex so as too keep your other B vitamins in balance as well. ****** this is not medical advice but I hope it helps you the way it did me. good luck on your continued journey. 2 Timothy 2: 7 “Consider what I say; and the Lord give thee understanding in all things” this included. posterboy by the grace of God,
