Is There Such Thing As A Gf Marshmallow?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

I am having the worst craving for "Rice Crispy bars" and have been on the mad search for marshmallows. I just can't seem to find any that happen to be gluten-free. :( Does anyone know of such a thing or a good substitute?

Also, I was told that I should change my toothpaste due to the fact that it possibly contains gluten, can you tell me what you use (gluten-free)?

Thank you for any help you can give!!!!!

I've never found a marhsmallow with gluten. Ever. With the Kraft marshmallow all you have to do is read the ingredients as they will clearly list any gluten.

In more than three years I've found exactly one toothpaste with gluten -- I think it was Sensodyne (I know it was one for people with sensitive teeth). Crest, Arm and Hammer, Colgate -- all gluten-free.

Hey Richard, I agree on the Marshmallow front, however I do use Sensodyne every day and don't have any problems. It may be a difference between their paste and gel however, or even Canada and US having different manufacturers?? I don't like the paste and have not used it since being gluten-free, I'm strictly a Gel type of girl! :D I did contact Sensodyne when I went gluten-free and they said that the products did not contain gluten but they could not guarantee it since they bought their ingredients from other places... vague I know, but pretty standard reply I find! :blink:

Is there another "sensitive" teeth paste that is confirmed gluten-free?

Thnks Richard!

Ok, I have to admit...The bag of marshmallows that I buy are store brand and they contain modified food starch. I just assumed that if the store brand did, they all did. :(

Geez, I remember my parents telling me as a kid..."whenever you assume things you make an *** out of you and me". lol They were right, I feel silly that I did not even bother to check the other brands.

I do use Crest, so I am ok. Thanks agaian :D

You do need to check MFS but in most cases it's gluten-free.

I might have been wrong about the Sensodyne or perhaps I was just remembering their CYA statement.

I make rice krispy treats with Kraft marshmallows and a gluten free rice cereal. You do need to check with MFS though but Kraft does not hide anything so I use their products a lot.They taste really good...you should make your own if you have a craving for it .:D

What rice cereal do you use for your rice crispy treats. I noticed Kelloggs Rice Krispies has malt falovoring in it.

I use a brand called Erewhon(manufactured by US Mills). I got it at a health food store. It says gluten free crispy brown rice whole grain cereal. It is also organic.

This is a link to their site with gluten free cereals they have. :D

Tammy, what is your location? Nature Path's rice cereal says Gluten Free right on the box and is found in most stores in Western Canada. I believe it's made in the West of the U.S. It makes yummy bars :D

Are the Nature's Path rice crispies more like the regular rice crispies? The Erewhon were a little too different when we first tried them for my kids to accept them (though they'd probably like them now.) Just wondering before I go and buy another box of cereal (so many rejects! :( )

They are different when they are by themselves. I don't know if I'm used to it but when I make rice krispy treats they taste pretty normal. My relatives who are not celiac have these rice krispies too and don't even know the difference. Envirokidz has a lot of gluten free cereals that are good...haven't tried natures path but they sound like something that I might like to try.

They are a little different. A little more bland. Unfotunately it seems to be the malt flavouring that makes them nice and crisp. But when they are done in the bars it does make them pretty close.

Just got a thought... would it help if before the gluten-free rice crispies are made into marshmallow bars, they are lightly toasted in the oven to make them more crispy for the receipe?

Hey Sarah,

I found some marshmallows on the glutenfree list for the USA. The brands are:

- Campfire marshmallows

- Fireside marshmallows - Walgreens Drugstore brand

- Jet Puffed

- Peeps

- SAFEWAY

Oh, and I just found Hain Kidz Marshmallow Crisp Bars: regular and chocolate chip are gluten-free. I don't know, if that's what you're looking for.

Hugs, Stef

Glenny's makes Rice Crispy like bars that are good. Both plain and chocolate. Daughter liked the plain better. Not good if you have a nut allergy though due to cross contamination. Alas, she does have a nut allergy so can't have them.

Hmmm, GLUTEN MARSHMELLOW?

I didn't realise they have gluten in them. I thought they are pretty much gluten free!

That's why I've been thinking of indulging on them today lol.

Most sweets are gluten free.

Like Haribo jellies according to their labels are suitable for vegans and vegetarians.

Jelly beans are the same!! One of the main reasons' I've fallen in LOVE with them lately.

Plus since they come in various flavours, I get to taste all the other things I can not have lol.

Or other junk sweets like flying saucers and stuff like that are usually gluten free.

Wine gums, etc.

If you have a thing for chocolates, most dark chocs are suitable for vegans too.

Green&Black's small dark choc's vegan & vegeterian friendly + gluten free

but then the bigger one has whole milk powder in it so you still have to go through the ingredients lists.

But then Lindt big chunk 'may' contain gluten but I find them alright.

Hope this helps.

On the toothpaste front:

As far as I can gather from my experiences w/ Sensodyne, calling them, and what people have posted here, they *used* to use an ingredient that could contain gluten. Not a CYA statement, but rather a rotating, "where can we get this cheapest" ingredient that meant the produce really did have *trace* amounts of gluten in it from time to time. This was something like five years ago? (My memory isn't precise on this - it could have been seven for all I remember. Suffice it to say, it was a *number* of years ago.)

Since then, however, they have changed their sources and now - if I recall what someone wrote here about calling them - really do have only gluten free ingredients.

Of course, I just use Crest's sensitivity toothpaste. 'Cause I like it. :P

    • In Austin, Wildwood Bakehouse and Wilder Wood Restaurant are totally gluten free.  I had the chicken fried steak and gravy and onion rings!!!  Awesome!!!  
    • Hi there I have this exact same thing.. however I don’t have celiac that I know of.. I found this when google searching for what the heck is wrong with my face.  I was wondering if you ever found out.. or if it just went away. Thanks
    • I have read the newbie 101 and have been careful about reading labels. I'm the only one that's gluten free in my household, so they could be contaminating me. I was eating gluten for 6 weeks after my blood test because it took that long to get an official diagnosis and my GP told me to still be eating it for the tests to be accurate. It was probably too soon to retest, but the test was accidentally ordered by the lab. I have been having an increase in joint pain over the last couple months and my rheumatologist ordered lab work. The lab saw the celiac panel had been ordered, but didn't see results so they added it on because they thought it still needed done.  My gut issues are starting to get better, but I'm thinking the joint pain might have been from the celiacs because all of the rheumatoid tests came back normal for the first time in twenty years.
    • Hi and Welcome to the Forum.  I am glad that you are here! As with a lot of things in life, try not to compare yourself to other people. You are trying to be the best version of yourself - not Jill, Annie, or Maya.  People make a lot of foolish decisions in the world and it does not mean that you should do it too.  Also, many people are gluten free for a lot of reasons that aren't celiac. One of my best friends has gluten sensitivity but not celiac.  He eats a lot of food that I won't touch due to possible cross contamination which he doesn't worry about too much.  Be true to yourself and keep your self healthy.  It is so hard, but it's better than getting sick! I hate not being able to partake in yummy food at parties, but I have learned what junk food I can eat.  I will make sure to buy some tortilla chips or Fritos for picnics.  I freeze gluten-free cupcakes to eat when we celebrate birthday parties (I can just take one out of the freezer and go).  I make sure to take a dish to share to potlucks.  I ask permission at restaurants and parties to bring my own food - no one has ever said no, and when there is a time to celebrate, I splurge on something I really like.  Fortunately, there are a lot of gluten-free foods that I really like. Do i miss pizza and really good burger? YES! And sometimes, I still feel awkward, but life is so much more than food.
    • If Small was going to get rid of anything in a takeaway meal, it would be the bread with all its dreaded gluten. However, many scientists and nutritionists argue gluten is not a problem for people who do not have celiac disease or who are not "gluten-sensitive". Massey University senior lecturer in food ...
