Sams Club Soft Serve Ice Cream Gluten Free?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello, I was wondering if anyone can tell me if the soft serve vanilla ice cream, that you can get at the Sams Clubs snack bar, is gluten free? I did eat, about 1/4 of one, and it was really thick, so I stopped, just to be safe, and sure enough, stomach issues. Could it have been from that?

I don't know if it has gluten in it. Could it have been the dairy in it that gave you issues? That happens to me sometimes.

Hi! it could have been, although sometimes I can eat a small amount of dairy and be ok, I can eat yogurts, but I was really curous about the ice cream. I thought I read somewhere that Dairy Queen has gluten, so I thought that was interesting....Im gonna call Sams and ask them, hopefully they will know what Im talking about!

For some reason I can eat yogurt and some cheeses with no problem. I cannot drink regular milk. I have to drink the Lactaid kind. Also, if I do eat ice cream which is rare, I take a lactaid pill before. I don't know why some dairy gets me and some doesn't. For me, it's trial and error to see what works.

Probably depends on the lactose content . . . milk has more than cheese . . . yogurt can be lower or higher but the "active cultures" can help you out. Here is a table just for a little info:

http://www.nationaldairycouncil.org/NR/rdo...6/0/TABLE10.pdf

When my daughter had her endoscopy, I asked if they could tell if she was lactose intolerant. They measured the amount of lactase (the enzyme that processes the latose in milk) she was producing. She had a low reading (based on the "normal" scale) but she was still producing it. She was like you. If she sat down and drank milk, she drank the Lactaid kind or she took a chewable lactaid tablet (which is just providing the lactase enzyme that the body is no longer making). If she was just having a bit of cheese, we didn't worry about it. After a couple of months gluten free, she didn't need to supplement anymore.

Thanks for the info. I never really thought about how each product would have a different lactose level. Unfortunately, I still need the lactaid. But, I'm so much better than before!
