Recently I've noticed that the containers of Yoplait yogurt do not say gluten free on them. Does anyone know if they changed the ingredients?

Yoplait is gluten free with the exception of the ones with cookies and granola. There have been reports of random gluten free labeling, but I don't believe it has anything to do with the contents.

Today I just brought some new Yoplait's and they all say Gluten Free and are all new stock. I heard that a lot of the "fat free" and "Light" yogurts (including Yoplait and Dannon and Breyer's etc) are NOT Gluten Free, but the "regular" and "low fat") ones are.

Today I bought Yoplait Thick and Creamy, Yoplait Whips Light and Fluffy (not the Fat Free version) and Yoplait Original. All have expiration dates out in Feb or Mar and all say Gluten Free.

I generally go by the ingredients (watching for the notorious "starches" to be cornstarch or tapioca starch specifically). However, recently there was the Dannon issue, where Dannon came out and said that NONE of their yogurts could be considered gluten-free - I think there was a thread on here with a quote from Dannon.

So, now I buy Breyers Fruit-on-the-Bottom and Yoplait (as above).

I'm going to go to their site (Yoplait) and see what they say - if anything I'll post againl.

According to the Clan Thompson Food Smartlist (recent entry):

Yoplait has stated that all new products as of Sept 12 2007 that are gluten-free are labeled gluten-free. If it does not say gluten-free it may have CC. Since Sept they have changed their formulas and mfg processes apparently and will label those that are gluten-free and also Cross Contanmination Free.

SO, buy only those that say gluten-free and discard those that do not.

<sigh...>

I just bought a bunch of Yoplait this weekend- I've been eating more of it lately because my guts have been "off". I now wonder if it was the yogurt giving me that feeling!

I checked my fridge yesterday and actually had two of the same flavor- one labeled gluten free, the other not. The un-labeled one has a later date on it.

And I'm assuming this applies to gogurt and smoothies too...? When I was shopping today, the only Yoplait products labeled gluten free were some of the thick & creamy and some of the originals. None of the "fun" things like whips or gogurt. :(

Yoplait is gluten free with the exception of the cookies and granola whether they are labled gluten free or not. If you read the ingredients, there will be no gluten listed.

Too much yogurt will give me bathroom issues, but it's not gluten related.

This is an email from Yoplait

Dear Valued Consumer:

Thank you for contacting Yoplait regarding gluten in Yoplait yogurt.

It is our goal to help our consumers determine whether or not they can include our products in their diet. To accurately accomplish this, we believe it is best to refer to the specific ingredients listed on each product package.

However, we do understand that ingredients can be confusing, so we want to assure you if the ingredient label does not list wheat, barley, rye, oats or gluten containing ingredients sourced from these grains, then the product would be gluten-free. Sources of gluten are listed on the label even if the source of gluten is part of another ingredient (such as flavoring or spice). Because ingredients may vary from one package to another due to product reformulation, you should use the product's ingredient label to provide you with current and accurate information.

Additional information regarding gluten may be obtained by contacting your health care professional or:

I love you guys, it's so wonderful to see thast there is always somebody else who already aksed the question I was going too! I just bought Yoplait kids Banana for my son, but decided that today was the morning my 15 month old daughter was gonna get her first Yoghurt.due to Celaic she hasn't dealt with any milkproduct well at all, allways got sever stomachcramps, but she just started tolerating Mozzarella cheese, it might be time to see if she is able to take Yoghurt , now that she's been off of gluten for aobut 2 month

I just talked to Yoplait and she said that they dont say gluten free any more, but she said to look at the ingredients and look for wheat ect. There will be no hidden gluten in the ingredients. Just look for all the grains we cant eat. It mostly looks safe so enjoy

Don't be so quick to assume that since your stomach has been acting funky now that you're eating more yogurt that it's a gluten reaction. Yogurt is utilized to help bring good bacteria into your body to fight off the bad bacteria...that's why they make that digestive tract help yogurt now, because it's supposed to help get your body more regular. I can't eat a lot of yogurt because of a texture problem :) (same reason why I can't eat bananas...yuck!!) The yogurt might actually help you feel better in the long run :) ones your body gets used to the influx of good bacteria!!

Does anyone know if the new Dessert Selctions are gluten free like the strawberry chantilly and the raspberry crumble? Has anyone tried them? It does not indicate any gluten sources in the ingredients so I am guessing that it is gluten-free if they have said that they clearing identify gluten.

Hi Everyone,

I asked Yoplait my question about their Desert Selections such as Rasberry Crumble and for anyone who is interested, this was the response:

Dear Consumer:

We acknowledge receipt of your question concerning gluten, namely our Yoplait Source Dessert Selection yogurt, and would like to thank you for taking the time to contact us.

Please be advised that we carefully analyze all of our ingredients (presence of wheat, rye, barley, triticale, spelt, oats and malt) to ensure they do not contain gluten. The only Yoplait product containing gluten is our Yoplait Source Muesli Selection yogurt. This product is constituted of two separate components, which are a 130g yogurt container, manufactured and tightly sealed in our production plant, topped with a dome of crunchy cereals, sealed properly and provided by an independent supplier. The yogurt containers and dome of cereals are delivered in other premises for assembly purposes. Therefore, we can assure you that there are no cross-contamination risks with any other Yoplait products which can therefore be safely consumed by people with celiac disease.Consumer satisfaction is always high on our list of priorities.

Thank you for your interest and be assured that Yoplait is continuously working to be the first to offer consumers innovative products of the highest quality.

Sincerely,

Consumer Service

YOPLAIT

    • Thank you for your help. I have had a few colonoscopy procedures done before and the bowel preparation started working near enough immediately. This time it made me feel awful and took a long time to work its way through. Can Celiac cause constipation as well as the opposite as my bowel habits have changed a lot and prior to the bowel preparation some hard stools caused bleeding. I also was wondering is it still possible for the TTG-IGA to be positive but the EMA not? My appointment to see the specialist isn't until 24th April so feel like I have such a huge wait and so worried about still being none the wiser or any chance of getting back to normality again as I am underweight as well.  Thank you for all your help and support and do hope I am not a nuisance on here. 
    • THAT'S EXACTLY WHAT I WAS TALKING ABOUT! I used to watch anime all the time and one day my brain just gave up on me! It was so hard to get through the day not being able to do the things I love the most. When I first started to have problems it started to affect my gaming too. I have such great dexterity and suddenly my fine motor skills had gone to crap. More recently I even felt dizzy trying to type my password onto my Iphone and typing. It was god awful.
    • It's forgot how long it's been since I've been glutened, but I think it's been about a week. Most of my problems are in my right eye. They're really dry too. I went to the doctor in January to get a b12 shot and my symptoms disappeared for a couple of days, including the dry eyes. Did you ever get this really uncomfortable symptom when you turned your head in front of a lamp? Like a light shining through the surface of your eye and blinding you a bit? I hate it. I think I have a bit of nightblindness too. Most of the digestive symptoms dissappear quick. Loss of appetite, bloating, feeling full after eating a little bit, especially anything that's mostly bread, like french toast. The b12 sublinguals helped with most everything so that's why I associated it with pernicious anemia. After I started to get chest pain, I knew that it was somehow the sublingual tablets, but I didn't think it was because they had wheat in them. But yes, most of my constipation is gone, and I don't get weird stools anymore. Way back in November I would get these really dry bowel movements that were solid and looked strange, and they would fall apart when they hit the bowl. (TMI I know but this is a celiac forum) When I get glutened, I start to lose feeling in my left arm/leg and my abdomen gets hard and uncomfortable. This happened a couple weeks ago when I accidentally ate these packaged "chow mein" noodles that contained wheat, and more recently when I went out to eat at a Japanese restaurant. That was on saturday so it's coming up on a week since I've been glutened and I'm starting to feel better. One other thing I noticed is that I start to get these creases on the side of my gums. I'm not sure if they're from my teeth but they start to slowly fade away when I don't eat gluten. There's also a whole list of other symptoms I could describe like my feet turning red in the shower, these tan lines on my legs that haven't gone away since september, pale nail beds both on my feet and hands, and sinus pressure that won't let me breathe through my nose correctly. I'm not sure if I've lost any hair, but way back in the summer, some of my friends joked around about how I was "bald" and I figured it might have been because I wear a hat all the time (I'm only 20 years old) but I'll just leave it at that for now.
    • Thank you to both of you! I will try to play around with those things!
    • Hi Len, you could also look at getting some DPP-IV or DPP-4.  DPP-4 is an enzyme reputed to break down gluten to some extent anyway.  Of course, the testing was done in a lab and not a person.  And it wasn't a complete and perfect thing because you have to know the correct amount of enzyme to add to the gluten portion to break it down.  At least DPP-4 is available at reasonable prices.  I use it if  I think I might have gotten a gluten cross contamination issue, or any digestion problem really.  It's definitely not going to let you eat a gluten food without symptoms and damage though.  It might slightly reduce the symptoms a little.  But a little bit of help is better than nothing.  DPP-4 won't stop the immune reaction from occurring.  Nothing we know of now would do that except and outright cure for celiac disease.  Or not eating gluten, which is a lot more doable at the moment.
