Hershey's has one of the least helpful websites I've ever visited! Anyone know if milk duds are gluten-free or not? Their ingredients look okay...but...(my son has a box and is bugging me this morning rather than yesterday when consumer affairs might have been open. Aargh!)

Hershey's is actually a wonderful company. All you have to do is read the label. Things are not hidden, if it comes from a top allergen it will be listed as such.

FYI-

I've found that Hershey's, Kraft, and Oscar Meyer have said that they list "top allergens" clearly on their products (according to their websites and to phone-reps. that I've talked with recently). -Julie

Good luck! B);):)

Actually, all of the companies mentioned here don't just list top allergens, they list any gluten. BTW, Oscar Meyer is a part of Kraft.

Here is a list of companies or brands (some are subsidiaries of the bigger companies) that list gluten or wheat. On the bigger companies, like Kraft, Unilever, General Mills, or Conagra, go to their web site to see all their brands. There are more than this, but I've checked these myself:

Aunt Nelly's

Balance

Baskin Robbins

Ben & Jerry

Betty Crocker

Blue Bunny

Butterball

Breyers

Campbells

Cascadian Farms

Celestial Seasonings

ConAgra *lists wheat only

Country Crock

Edy's

General Mills

Good Humor

Green Giant

Hellman's

Hershey

Hormel

Hungry Jack

Jiffy

Knorr

Kozy Shack

Kraft

Libby's

Lipton

Martha White

McCormick

Nabisco

Nestle

Old El Paso

Ortega

Pillsbury

Popsicle

Post

Progresso

Russell Stover

Seneca Foods

Smucker

Stokely's

Sunny Delight

T Marzetti

Tyson

Unilever

Wishbone

Yoplait

Zatarain's

Hey Richard-

Nice list! Oscar Meyor/Kraft are the same (good call, my mistake)...I was just sitting here at work yesterday and was racking my brain for companies/products that I remembered clearly listing gluten on the labels. (Especially products that a child might beg for or enjoy eating...i.e. candy and hotdogs) :P;)

Hey Freya...

looks like you've got plenty of options...and a happy 10 year old! ;)B)

Take Care all-

Enjoy the holidays

-Julie :)

Very good list indeed. I've tried to buy more from the companies that list allergens whenever given a choice. But i was pretty dismayed a few wks ago when i found a Kraft product w/ an obvious gluten source and no allergen warning on the pkg. It was Louis Rich brand pre-cooked seasoned chickenstrips. I took a picture w/ my Palm but it didn't come out clear enough to read the details, unfortunately.

I remember which store and tho it isn't close i go by there occassionally so maybe i'll go look again and write down the info instead of relying on a camera in a device for which taking pics isn't its primary function.

I'm not sure that Kraft does allergen warnings, at least I don't remember them doing it. What they do is what you saw -- they clearly list gluten in the ingredients.

    • This could be related to nutrient deficiencies such as multip B-vitamins, magnesium, primarily with some others to consider like vitamin D E and iron. But my concern with be diabetes also, it is a fact that diabetes and celiac go hand in hand often. AND if you eat gluten free processed food often you are eating a ton more starch, carbs, and sugars then you need to which could make this worse. I would really suggest seeing a doctor about this as it seems to be a really serious issue. Discoloration is a blood flow issue normally.....this could lead to complications and loss/amputation of you your extremities. Again my main concern would be diabetes, if you want to help keep track of this get a glucose monitor from walmart and check you blood glucose before and a at the 30, 60, 90, 120min mark after a meal for a week monitor the results and see about taking them to a doctor. If your seeing large spikes and drops between and after meals this could be a sign of something. (again observational data not a doctor here  but info to help). You can try supplementing B-vitamin complexes and magnesium also help but PLEASE talk to a doctor on this issue. Change to a whole foods only diet for awhile and see about cutting out processed foods, sugars, and going easy on the carbs.
    • Celiac disease is a bit like a chameleon in symptoms with over 500 known combinations (someone else said this number). It being a autoimmune disease it would not be unheard of it effecting the lymph nodes and in fact early on my first signs of a CC was tightening and swelling of the ones in my neck. I have not noticed this with my past few encounters in the past 2 years. But as I said it is a chameleon in symptoms. You will need to be eating gluten daily for about 12 weeks for the celiac blood panel which is the standard for testing with this disease. And keep eating it for 2 weeks prior to a follow endoscope and biopsy to check for intestinal damage. You can read up more in the link http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/
    • Hi there, I was recently diagnosed with Celiac after having dramatic weight loss, extreme fatigue, digestive issues, and a variety of other things. The blood test and biopsy both came back positive so I have been following a strict gluten free diet.  I have been experiencing muscle spasms, frequent face redness all over, and as of lately my toes and fingers have been turning different colours. The most concerning would be my toes as they will go purple. Each toe looks like it has a bruise on it. Is this symptomatic of celiac? I followed up with my family doctor but his only suggestion was to see a dietician, and out I went.  My antibody came back positive, and the titre was high and speckled. Is this related to the celiac? Not much has been explained to me, and I am just trying to understand further! If anyone has any advice, or comments I would be glad to read them!    Thank you  
    • You should get the lymph nodes checked. You need to be eating a regular gluten containing diet to get the best & most accurate results for celiac disease.
