so im eating my breky this morning and i bought my self some dannon activa yogurt, ive been eating yogurt from the health food stores with no probs, but this morning i have gone to the bathroom twice allready. now im reading some conflicting stuff on the web about this yogurt but i did find a site that states it is no longer gluten-free as some of the natural flavors may accually have gluten in them. anyone have problems with this brand of yogurt. im lactose intolerant and yogurt is one thing that i can handle without having to take a lactaid so im hoping that its just this brand as yesterday i ate my stuff from the health food store with no problems.

Stick to natural organic yogurt without sugar if you want to help your gut. I don't know if it has gluten.

I looked it up on my Clan Thompson software and it said that it has stabilizers that may contain gluten so they have it listed as NOT gluten free. Yoplait is a General Mills company so they will list any gluten. Tillamook yogurt is also gluten free.

In the US Dannon Yogurts are not safe. Here is the statement from the company:

http://209.85.165.104/search?q=cache:BnWTT...;celiac disease=1&gl=us

Gluten

Gluten is a protein found in wheat, oats, rye and barley.DANNON yogurt products are not formulated to contain gluten, but they cannot be considered gluten free. This is because the natural flavor system used might have ingredients added to stabilize the flavor. These ingredients can be derived from gluten sources. Since there is a currentlack of consensus on individual sensitivity levels to gluten and there are no accurate tests to detect the presence and amount of gluten, DANNON

In Canada the Activia yoghurt has wheat listed right in the ingredients! Why you need to put wheat in yoghurt is beyond me.

Clan Thompson has a program that you can purchase with mainstream gluten free product listing and down load it on your PC or say a Palm Pilot. I'm sure you could find information at www.Clan Thompson.com,

Oh no, I've been drinking the Dannon Activa every morning for the last month! AAAAAAhHhhhhhh! It *looked* gluten free....I should know better than to trust that, though. ACK! And yes, I have been sick lately....sigh.

I guess it's off to look for another yoghurt!

Really? That's strange. I don't eat yogurt because I'm allergic but a coworker brought one over to me and I read the ingredients. It said right on it that it contained gluten. I wonder if its a certain flavor or something. The one I read definitely had gluten in it.

Why, because it is additive :ph34r: and because they want the yogurt thick and creamy.

Thats why I look for the least processed products available. You can look for the least ingredient yogurt, my Wegmans brand has "pasturized lowfat milk, nonfat milk and pectin" thats it. I just throw some in a blender with a banana and some other fruit. Makes a yogurt smoothie in seconds with all the good bacteria and flavor you could want.

OK! I am staring right at my Activa (non fiber added) and the ingredients don't say wheat. HOWEVER: It does say: " MANUFACTURED IN A PLANT PROCESSING WHEAT" So, who is to say that it is made on the same machine as other wheat products or on it's own separate machine? Go with your GUT, I guess. LOL

And keep aware that it may be fine many times and then you may end up getting glutened from it. There are good yogurts that are processed in facilities that don't have any CC risk. I tend to go with those as my reactions are severe.

I would like to make a comment on the above, while staying on subject regarding yogurt. Per Ravenwoodglass, opt for the least amount of ingredients. But, look out for hidden sweeteners (Dannon Activa contains fructose syrup).

I'm just pointing this out as you asked the board whether the rest of us would consider eating this item. My opinion is to stick with Ravenwoodglass' suggestion when choosing a yogurt and you'll always making a wholesome food choice. ;)

Fage Greek yogurt is sensational; I've been eating it for years and it's luscious. Also, there is some scientific opinion out there that the yogurts that come already loaded with sugar actually "kill" off the probiotics one would hope to benefit from by eating yogurt. Adding some sugar when you eat it may not have that same effect. Read that somewhere a long time ago and never buy spruced up yogurt- do the sprucing myself.

Just a thought...

And, they have it at Costco in a club pack. Throw a medley of berries in there first thing in the morning (blueberry, blackberry, raspberry).

It's packed with protein too!

I am confused. I have the book Cecelia's Marketplace Gluten free grocery shopping for 2009-2010 and it says Dannon plain(Activia 24oz, Low fat, Natural and Nonfat are gluten free.

LOTS of companies claim "gluten free" who seem unaware of the cc issues with shared lines or shared facilities. I NEVER trust something that says "gluten free" until I contact the company and grill them, particularly because I have learned (the very hard way...) that I am ultra-sensitive to the evil gluten. Like so many on this board!

Just a thought,

There are mornings like today that I think this whole thing is impossible to figure out. I spend hours on the computer and feel like I am just making a dent in my knowledge of how to be gluten free. I can't imagine how some people who work or are busy mothers do it.

Anyway I picked up some Fage yogurt yesterday. I liked Dannon's greek yogurt but will try Fage.

    •   Might want to look into a keto diet, I have UC on top of celiacs and keto is working great Yeah I have major nerve and brain issues with gluten, gluten ataxia with nerve issues and brain issues. Seems to cause my body to attack my brain and nerve system. My brain stumbles fogs, and starts looping, the confusion causes me to become really irritable, I call it going Mr Hyde. Like my mind will start looping constantly on thoughts and not move driving me literally mad, or it used to. Now days it is primary the numbness anger but the gut issues and sometimes random motor loss limit me motionless to the floor now days for the duration of the major anger effects. Used to be a lot more mental then painful gut. I did a mental trauma post on it on while back where I came out about all my mental issues with gluten.  
    • ^^^^^^ good info, tips and tricks^^^^^^^^^ yes, crumbs will make you sick.  also, breathing flour/pancake mix, etc that is in the air because eventually, you're going to swallow some. 
    • Hello I was diagnosed Dec 15 of last year and went totally gluten-free the next day. I actually got worse before I got better - it's a steep learning curve - but now, 4 1/2 months later I'm finally seeing improvement.  Hang in there. 
    • Called my GI doctor today to make sure he is going to look at my small intestine and do biopsy for Celiac for my EGD and he is. Thanks for the tip everyone about have to start eating gluten again. The office told me to break my gluten free diet and start eating gluten everyday until my EGD. Here's to being miserable again for a few weeks 🍻🍞😩
    • I can completely relate! The horrible mental effects that I have been living with for years is the absolute worst side effect of eating gluten, HANDS DOWN. Worse than the endless tummy aches, worse than the constant diarrhea, worse than the week long migraines, worse than the daily fatigue and body pain.... I honestly though there was something seriously wrong with me and hated my life because of how I felt mentally. I always felt like I was drowning, not in control of my thoughts, trapped in some unexplained misery. My head was always so cloudy, and I was mad because I always felt so slow and stupid. I would feel so lethargic and sad and empty while at the same time be raging inside, wanting to rip out of my own skin. I was mean, terrible, would snap at the people closest to me for no good reason and just felt like I hated everyone and everything. Think of how crappy you feel when you have a terrible cold and flu - I felt that crappy, but mentally. Some days were really bad, some were mild. I always thought it was because I was getting a migraine, or because I had a migraine, or because I had just overcome a migraine, because I didn't sleep well, because....always a random reason to justify why we have all these weird unrelated symptoms before we get diagnosed. I'm happy to say that I have been gluten-free for about 2 months now and though I am not symptom free, the first thing that improved was my mood. I no longer feel foggy and miserable. For the first time in years, my head is clear, I can actually think, and I feel positive and like I am in control of what's going on in my head. I don't hate the world. I don't spend every day bawled up on the corner of the couch depressed and angry. The release of these horrible symptoms is enough to never make me want to cheat, no matter what I have to miss out on. So insane how a little minuscule amount of a stupid protein can wreck such havoc.
