No. Plain sour cream is gluten-free.

I have had two separate restaurants say that they would leave off sour cream to make the food gluten free. Do you think that is that ignorance on their part or something else?

Not sure about "restaurant" sour cream. I can say that just plain ole store bought sour cream (like Daisey brand) with just the basic ingredients have never had gluten in it that I have seen. Same for Ice Cream (long as its not cookies and cream)....You know what I mean......Mike

P.S. Matter of fact, I have yet to find a positive for gluten in any dairy products, not saying it could not happen. My theory is that if a dairy product did get gluten in it while in the manufacturing process, they might have a real problem with molds/bacteria and such, so I think they are very sanitary in this part of the industry. FWIW

Without specifics it's difficult to say. What kind of restaurants? What kind of dishes? Sour cream contains no wheat. So I don't know why they would say such a thing for sour cream on a baked potato, or a taco/tostado.

As for sour cream chicken enchiladas (even with a corn tortilla), every tex mex restaraunt I've asked has said it contains wheat flour. I'm guessing the sour cream is whipped with flour to make it a fluffy sauce.

best regards, lm

where I live (Canada) it is common for sour cream to have starch. This is particularly likely for reduced calorie products. I don't take sour cream in restaurants.

Plain sour cream should be fine. Reduced-fat or non-fat versions may be thickened with some kind of starch, although it should say on the label what kind of starch. If it says "modified food starch" and doesn't say "wheat" anywhere on the label (behind the starch or as an allergy declaration) then you should be okay. Since you don't know what they use in the restaurant, you might want to skip it.

you do need to check when you eat out though. because some sour cream has added things to it so that it stays firm under the heat lamps and does not get watery. I just ask the waitress. I seem to have a 50-50 shot when I eat out.

    •   Might want to look into a keto diet, I have UC on top of celiacs and keto is working great Yeah I have major nerve and brain issues with gluten, gluten ataxia with nerve issues and brain issues. Seems to cause my body to attack my brain and nerve system. My brain stumbles fogs, and starts looping, the confusion causes me to become really irritable, I call it going Mr Hyde. Like my mind will start looping constantly on thoughts and not move driving me literally mad, or it used to. Now days it is primary the numbness anger but the gut issues and sometimes random motor loss limit me motionless to the floor now days for the duration of the major anger effects. Used to be a lot more mental then painful gut. I did a mental trauma post on it on while back where I came out about all my mental issues with gluten.  
    • ^^^^^^ good info, tips and tricks^^^^^^^^^ yes, crumbs will make you sick.  also, breathing flour/pancake mix, etc that is in the air because eventually, you're going to swallow some. 
    • Hello I was diagnosed Dec 15 of last year and went totally gluten-free the next day. I actually got worse before I got better - it's a steep learning curve - but now, 4 1/2 months later I'm finally seeing improvement.  Hang in there. 
    • Called my GI doctor today to make sure he is going to look at my small intestine and do biopsy for Celiac for my EGD and he is. Thanks for the tip everyone about have to start eating gluten again. The office told me to break my gluten free diet and start eating gluten everyday until my EGD. Here's to being miserable again for a few weeks 🍻🍞😩
    • I can completely relate! The horrible mental effects that I have been living with for years is the absolute worst side effect of eating gluten, HANDS DOWN. Worse than the endless tummy aches, worse than the constant diarrhea, worse than the week long migraines, worse than the daily fatigue and body pain.... I honestly though there was something seriously wrong with me and hated my life because of how I felt mentally. I always felt like I was drowning, not in control of my thoughts, trapped in some unexplained misery. My head was always so cloudy, and I was mad because I always felt so slow and stupid. I would feel so lethargic and sad and empty while at the same time be raging inside, wanting to rip out of my own skin. I was mean, terrible, would snap at the people closest to me for no good reason and just felt like I hated everyone and everything. Think of how crappy you feel when you have a terrible cold and flu - I felt that crappy, but mentally. Some days were really bad, some were mild. I always thought it was because I was getting a migraine, or because I had a migraine, or because I had just overcome a migraine, because I didn't sleep well, because....always a random reason to justify why we have all these weird unrelated symptoms before we get diagnosed. I'm happy to say that I have been gluten-free for about 2 months now and though I am not symptom free, the first thing that improved was my mood. I no longer feel foggy and miserable. For the first time in years, my head is clear, I can actually think, and I feel positive and like I am in control of what's going on in my head. I don't hate the world. I don't spend every day bawled up on the corner of the couch depressed and angry. The release of these horrible symptoms is enough to never make me want to cheat, no matter what I have to miss out on. So insane how a little minuscule amount of a stupid protein can wreck such havoc.
