That's awesome! I didn't know they had gluten-free pancakes either, I thought they just had waffles. Let us know how they are. I would love a good gluten-free pancake.

Check the label, I noticed online it says malt extract, I contacted the company to see if it was a typo or what their response was.

Okay....The label for the pancakes lists malt extract. I will call monday to see what the deal with that is. That makes me mad...even if the sorce is gluten free thet should list what it is.

By the way....the pancakes were good, but I usually make my own using arrowhead mills gluten free waffle mix.....and they come out wonderful!

On their web site the pancakes and toast sticks are listed as wheat free but not gluten free. They do make things that are only wheat free, so my guess is these products are not gluten free.

For nummy amazing pancakes try pamela's mix. I throw in a drop of vanilla and they are dreamy.

Not only are the pancakes and french-toast sticks listed under "gluten free" on the Van's web site, it's labeled as such right on the front of the boxes.

There is a disconnect between the ingredient listings and the labeling/listing.

Yes it says...GLUTEN FREE! I'm looking at it right now, and malt extract is in the ingredients. Maybe we know more than they do. There is also a section on the back of the box that talks about their gluten free promise, and that they test there products. Maybe it is a source of gluten, but it still falls below the 10 ppm. Is it 10 or 20? Like how benifiber states their product is gluten free, but it contains wheat dextrin.......WTF

Dang! Why do they have to use soy? The Ian's are good but a pain because you have to use the oven to heat them.

That's really odd. Their website has a disconnect because when I click on "show me only wheat free" they show up and when I click on "show me only gluten free" they are not in the list. Its rather confusing.

I spoke today with a Van's customer service representative, who advised that the malt extract in the pancakes and french toast sticks is derived from barley but that the gluten is removed during processing. She told me that the ingredients are tested at various intervals during production and that any gluten present in the end product would be less than 20 parts per million (ppm), which would be within the proposed FDA requirement. Given this information, consumption of the Van's pancakes and french toast sticks is a matter of one's own comfort level.

I find the "gluten free" labeling laws (or lack thereof) so aggravating! If something had trace amounts of peanuts in it, could it be called peanut free??

What is the status of the labeling laws? Anyone?

I'm not eating them anymore.......not because they bother me physically, but the whole thing bothers me mentally. Don't you think they should just use some other form of flavoring...like with chex. What if I eat the whole box in one day....would that bring me above 20ppm? HAHA...I wonder if I could eat a whole box of pancakes :D

I wasn't aware of this controversy, but I found both these items by surprise about four weeks ago in the freezer section at our local Whole Foods and bought them, I've ate the pancakes several times (although I've made pancakes from scratch too which have actually come out great, of all the things I make it's wierd cause I cannot ever tellt he difference with pancakes for some reason) but anyways the Van pancakes are also the same, they taste like old school frozen pancakes I used to eat back in the gluten days of my life. I'm very happy with them.

I've tried the frozen Glutino french toast as well, which is decent, but it always seems to come out a bit hard/tough to cut with a fork/knife and to chew on. I need to try the french toast sticks next, which I think are made in partnership with Glutino if I read the information on the box correctly (the box actually looks like the Glutino french toast box if I remember correctly), so they are probably alot like the Glutino french toast.

Anyways just my two cents on this.

I wanted to say that I've had really good luck with the gluten-free Van's waffles (via Publix), until recently when I bought from another store. It was a box clearly labeled "Van's Apple Cinnamon gluten-free waffles". When I tasted them, though, they didn't have the same gluten-free texture that we're all used to. I ate one anyway, because it said "gluten-free" on the box (stupid, I know). It made me sick. A mislabeled box maybe?

Just something to keep any eye out for :)

According to this post, Van's will be removing the malt extract from the pancakes and french toast sticks with the next production.

    • Think about this.  I have only had my daughter tested for celiac disease.  She tested negative.  She will need to be retested sometime in the future or when symptoms develop.  But genetic testing?  This might impact her insurability in terms of health and life.  I do not have the answers, but I would research this before having everyone tested.  Some 40% of the population carries the genes to develop celiac disease.  Only a very few actually develop it.  Insurance companies will deny you for all kinds of lame reasons.  Just be careful. 
    • I think for adults who are disabled or have really low incomes, they should be allowed to keep their Rx.  But anyone else who is an adult and has a job, they should pay their own way.  There are so many options available in the UK now and their gluten-free options are really good.  You have better bread than we do in the States and the cost in many instances is lower than it is here.
    • Ennis....pertaining to food deductions, you can deduct the price difference between those items that you would have to buy a gluten free version of because there are no other options......like all the mixes and things mentioned.  Chips, not so much, as many chips are already gluten free so it would not apply.  Those would be your safest bet as you probably will be audited for doing this.  That's how the IRS works. If there are big changes regarding deductions, that will raise a red flag and your chances of being audited go up.  You sound like you keep good records so don't sweat it if you will gain a benefit in income from doing so.  You do realize that you have to have a minimum of 10% of your adjusted gross income to even begin to deduct anything?
    • Hey guys The topic title is actually misleading a little, I had an endoscopy in december, was told it was a little inflamed and they were pretty sure it wasnt celiacs, just a minor gluten intolerance.  Long story short, its now July, had to cancel appointments due to moving to london. tried ringing for results for a long time. Nothing. Last week, find out I am celiac with some eroded Villi.....from December Anyway. I have been gluten free for 2 weeks. I have had problems with kidneys aching, stomach pains, bladder pains, all sorts. before hand, I cut the gluten down, but was not entirely gluten free. I was told that it was early stages.    Gluten Free I am not finding so hard, but I am waking up EVERY morning with stomach pains still. Or bladder, or whatever. Ill go back to the docs soon. Ive been having a lot of fruit and I am wondering if the fibre is not letting my stomach settle. Also that dairy products might be causing the issue. I was basically trying to absorb some nutrients to get rid of my hurrendous exhaustion, I cant be malabsorbing as I still have Villi.    Any advice, anything would be great
    • Thanks for the info.  I will ask the GI about my twin sister and nephews to see if they need to be tested regularly too.  I'm hoping our insurance will pay for gene testing also to help rule any of us out if possible.
