My work was looking into buying nestle chocolate so I tried doing research on any allergens. I tried calling them and never got a response back. I'd love to know too!

Nestle chocolate chips are gluten free. They will clearly list gluten, so always check the labels. :)

Thanks Jenny, :) I did check the label, however in the ingrediants it states there are artificial colors. According to the unsafe food list on this website, artificial colors may or may not contain gluten. So how do you know for sure without contacting the manufacturer? This isn't always so easy since it always seems you need to know after they are closed... :rolleyes:

Since I am so new to this maybe I am going about this all wrong....

new too and have a hard time getting a straight answer from manufacturers too, when i do get a hold of someone. is it that they legally can't say "gluten-free" on some items? i have gotten - we can't say it's gluten-free but the ingredients do not specifically contain gluten - or something like that. but there are those questionable ingredients like natural flavors where i don't know what to do.

Some companies will not hide gluten at all--even under natural or artificial flavors. Nestle is one of those companies, as is Kraft. So, if there is gluten in the natural flavors, it will read something like Natural flavors (barley). If it's Nestle or Kraft, and you don't see wheat, oats, barley, or rye at all, then it's gluten-free.

There is a list somewhere on this board of all the companies that plainly list gluten and won't hide it under anything (food starch, natural flavors, artificial flavors, etc.). It's a useful list to have, as it saves some time from calling companies and such.

It can be so difficult in the beginning, so please let us know if you have any other questions!

Here's the list. I bookmarked it. Thanks to who ever posted it! I called all the companies and I suggest that you do the same. One of the companies (Blue Bunny???) just did not have products that contain gluten, but they did not have a gluten policy. Everything on the list was fine, but it's always a good policy to call yourself. :)

This is great. It's always hard to know which companies you can trust. Do you know if the same goes for these companies in Canada?

    • Ennis_TX, thank you for your response! I will take heed of all your nutritional pieces of advice, one by one. And yes, I am aware that a gluten marathon is on the horizon soon.   Before doing the test, however, I shall try to fortify my diet with the nutrients you mentioned, and report back in a week or two.   I think adding some iron supplement is wise too.    
    • Yeah I thought that rant might make me look like a queer after reading it a bit later.....I am straight btw I just have very long and fine hair...that yeah it blows everywhere and gets in my mouth sometimes, and always pushing it with my hands or having to tie it up.  I blew up because it sometimes feels like I am talking to a bunch jocks with buzz cuts when it comes to hair....like people that do not understand no matter what you do....it is going to end up in your mouth and you have to keep messing it and working with it when the stuff runs like 4-6" past your shoulders.
      >.< thing is some times with the way your hair is.....you do not rinse it all out...some conditioners I have used in the past used to b ones you would not rinse all the way out....it sort of does become a issue that is very easily avoided. There are many more options for gluten free shampoos now days and many companies have taken the allergy/gluten concern to heart and removed them/used alternatives to boost sales to a larger demographic. Point is while yes I did blow up about it...and honestly in many cases the "hydrolyzed wheat protein" thing is a hit and miss on if it really contained gluten, but better safe then sorry is my bet and with tons of options....why chance it?


       
    • B-vitamins...most gluten and processed foods are enriched...your basically eating a multivitamin every time you have a slice of bread etc. Look for a full spectrum B-vitamin supplement, others can be magnesium, iron, vitamin d, folate, etc. You mention plenty of greens and fruit so ruling out vitamin A,C,K, and a few others. Hmm did you drop off your carbs too much? If your carb dependent you need more complex carbs from like sweet potatoes, rice etc. And what about fat and protein? I am a keto dieter, my body burns fat instead of carbs for energy so I can say it is quite important to have plenty of fats and protein in your diet. Try snacking on nuts/seeds between meals or making up a protein shake with almond butter in it between meals (again going but what you said you eat vs what you might be missing)

      I use Liquid Health for my spectrum B vitamins and vitamin D. Might look into them, being in liquid form you can just add it to a beverage. Might see about magnesium also, huge issue with many with this disease.

      On other after thought, your probably already very aware of...but you mention your not "diagnosed yet" you will have to do a gluten challenge of eating gluten for a extended amount of time daily prior to getting tested. http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/
    • Thanks guys! I have an endoscopy/colonoscopy  feb 5th, so we will see. I have had digestive issues for the past like 10 years. GERD, migraines, lactose intolerant, dizziness on and off starting last year. My test just always show chronic inflammation, I thought they tested for celiac last time but it was only H. pylori samples. As much as I don’t want to have celiac I’m hoping this could be the root of my problem! My doctor said I should probably go gluten free after the test regardless of the results. You guys have been so helpful!! 
    • Well was trying it in smoothies, and puddings...but yeah  I can see it especially with the jelling effects causing some issues...will try again later. I changed over to pumpkin seeds higher in zinc today for my rotation.

      PS I am allergic to corn..and any kind of sugar messes with me. SO most meds are off limits. I went with Immunity Tea from Republic of tea, Ester-C Capsules, Thayers slippery elm lazenges sugar free, and a zinc Supplement for my remedy. Oh and sugar free meds normally contain that asu what ever stuff......makes me go off the deep end mentally.
