Hi!

I've read in several places that some ice cream contains gluten, but I eat a lot of ice cream and have yet to come across a brand that has it (besides in the obvious flavors like cookie dough, etc).

So now I'm curious... do any of you know which brands contain gluten?

Thanks for the help. B)

Well, what I mean is that if you were to look at the ingredients in each brand of vanilla flavored ice cream, every brand has a different recipe. So do some brands use gluten as a thickener in their recipe? And, if so, which brands?

Most ice cream is gluten-free. It is not possible to make a sweeping generalization based on the brand--there are too many variables. When gluten is in ice cream, it is typically in something added to the formula to create a specific flavor. I don't know of any ice cream that uses a gluten ingredient to provide texture (there may be one that I don't know about).

Sometimes a general statement can be made about a brand. Godiva chocolate is not safe for celiacs. All Godiva chocolate is sweetened with barley malt. So, any Godiva product which contains chocolate is unsafe. I don't think Godiva has any products that don't contain chocolate. :(

Really? I'm so sorry that gave you trouble! My all-time favorite ice cream flavor is Ben & Jerry's Vanilla Caramel Fudge and it doesn't give me problems.

Ben and Jerry's has a very clear gluten labeling policy. http://benjerry.custhelp.com/cgi-bin/benje...nZT0x&p_li=

"Should any of our products contain those grains (wheat, flour, barley, oats, rye, malt, etc.) the label would reference them. We understand that there are tricky ways that gluten can be missed. We assure you that we have researched our ingredients carefully, and we know exactly what is going into our ice cream."

I contacted Haagen Dazs and they told almost all of their ice cream was gluten free, except for the ones they added something like cookies to. So I started eating the chocalate covered vanilla ice cream bars with little or no problems. Then I tried the chocolate malted chocalate covered ice cream bars, and my stomach and guts burned for about 24 hours. To me it's a crap shoot and sometimes you get snake eyes.

Well malt is gluten..usually made from barley.

Try Edy's brands. It's called something else west of the Mississippi.....Dreyer's I think. They have LOTS of

flavours. I think they are upfront about all labeling of gluten but I call them up. They will send you a gluten-free list

of their current flavours. I don't remember if they send coupons or not (alot of manufacturers do). They are

very friendly and helpful. Last year during the American Idol hoopla, they had like 5 flavours to pick from for

people to vote on and only one was supposed to make it as a permanent flavour. The "Take the Cake" flavour

I didn't think made it but I recently saw it at a store. It's a yellow cake with sprinkles flavour and it is (or at

least WAS) gluten-free. Funny I was never fond of cake and now that I can't have it........oh well......it's quite good.

Also the Edy's brand here in Chicagoland goes on sale quite freqently BOGO (Buy one get one free). Hope

this helps you out. I'm leaving the liberry now to go home and get some vanilla with chocolate syrup........

slurrrrrrp!.................Angel

That's REALLY good to know because my job takes me to Canada at least once a year. Thanks for pointing that one out!

Take the cake is really good very sweet It has yellow cake flavored ice cream with frosting swirls and color sprinkles in it.

Now if they can make this why can't they make the cookie dough without gluten?

I went to Jason's Deli today and asked if the soft serve had gluten. It does :angry: . No wonder it got sick the last time I ate there.

Blue Bunny has a birthday cake as well. Really does taste like cake! My son loves it, but I have a hard time with cake having the texture and cold of ice cream!

For those of you missing cake...Kinnikinnick's chocolate and white cakes are fabulous and I've yet to find anyone who could tell they weren't made with wheat flour.

And for those missing cookie dough ice cream - Gluten Free Sensations chocolate chip cookie dough is amazing (well so are the cookies, but I'm partial to dough!). Drop spoonfuls of it in your favorite vanilla - yum! You can either freeze the drops first or add them unfrozen.

Yeah, I'm the Celiac mom with a HUGE sweet tooth! Thankfully my son helps to keep me eating healthy (mostly :rolleyes: ).

    • 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 ...

    • Holy cow! You people are all angels! I have been suffering unbearably with these hot, itchy, and painful bumps on my scalp for a year now. Two doctors had no idea what it was, so I was sent to see a "dermatologist." To my utter shock, he told me I WAS DIRTY! HE TOLD ME TO WASH MY HAIR EVERY DAY with a shampoo called Nizoral, that it would take the itch away. He also prescribed a Vaseline based salve with a steroid in it. Guess what? It did nothing nor did the shampoo, and the more I washed my hair, the worse it gets. It's like torture, and I just can't stop scratching holes into my scalp. Then they scab over, then itch again. I was almost ready to shave my head, until I found this forum. I knew nothing about celiac disease, sensitivity to gluten... I knew nothing. Just so happened that my daughter found a paper talking about celiac during her visit to her GI yesterday. She brought it home for me, and demanded that I read it!  WHAM- a light come on, and I said to her... That IS what I have. I am going to my GP tomorrow to demand that I be tested for ciliac. I am rather terrified, as I am already a type 1 diabetic and have been on insulin for 52 years! I was blaming my diabetes the whole time. I have had a lower left leg amputation, and the last thing I need is to start getting this ungodly rash on my stump!!! Thank you everyone for all of the useful information you have provided in this blog. Maybe I'm not going to die after all! 😉
