Powdered Sugar

Are most brands of powdered sugar safe? and what about baking powder and baking soda?? Most of the ones I see dont have any suspect ingredients or warnings about the factories so I figure they are safe? I havent actually baked anything gluten-free yet. I asume to stick to pure vanilla extract also, over the imitation brown stuff?

thanks!

I've seen quite a few brands of powdered sugar that say gluten-free on the bag. The one thing about powdered sugar is that it is cut with cornstarch and a lot of people with corn issues can't handle it. Nielsen-Massey and McCormick pure vanilla is gluten-free. I contacted McCormick about their imitation butter flavor and it is also gluten-free and I think they told me all of their imitation flavorings were but you might want to call or email to verify.

There was a warning here a while back about some powdered sugar containing gluten. I think it was the Walmart brand or perhaps just a brand that they carry. Can't say for sure since our Walmart doesn't have a grocery.

A year or so ago I went to buy powdered sugar at Wal-Mart and their Great Value brand had wheat starch in it. Most brands use corn starch. Just make sure to check the label on whichever powdered sugar you buy.

I buy Rumford baking powder or Clabber Girl. They state gluten free on the container.

Because corn is becoming a fuel, the price has gone up, so many companies have gone back to using wheat starch. Even brands we have trusted for a while now are now showing up with wheat starch. Always read the labels, even your old favorites.

My sister is a dietician and the powdered sugar she had been buying from Gordon's Food Service, had been gluten free for some time, it now contains wheat starch!

In addition to the corn in cornstarch, cornstarch is usually, unless it says otherwise, chemically processed with sulfites. People like me with sulfite allergies need to avoid cornstarch.

I buy Rogers Icing sugar in Canada and the sugar produced by Lantic Inc/Rogers uses a small amount of cornstarch. B)

Good to know that the GV icing sugar at WalMart uses wheat starch... <_<
