A call out to all on Hershey's Chocolate Syrup. Is it gluten-free? We're using Nesquik, but I prefer Hershey over Nestle.

TIA,

Libby.

Hershey's is a brand like Kraft so all you have to do is check the label. If it doesn't say wheat, rye, barley, or oats right on the label then it is safe :D

I love Hershey's syrup :D

For those of you who cannot have the soy that is often in these things, take a tablespoon or two of water and add to it a dash of salt, a tsp of cocoa, and 2 tsp of sugar. Heat them either in the microwave or on the stove until just boiling. Stir well. If you like your syrup really rich, add a little butter. This makes a great syrup for hot or cold chocolate milk. If you heat your milk, do not let it come to a boil. Last of all, add a drop or two of vanilla.

You can let the chocolate boil for an extra few seconds and it makes a good syrup to pour over ice cream. I like to thicken mine just a little with some powdered sugar when I use it for ice cream.

This is a regular around our house. If you are dairy intolerant, it also works with other non-dairy beverages.

does anyone know if hershey's strawberry syrup is gluten free as well? I'm hesitant about the "artificial and natural flavors" listed and had a small reaction after having some today. I know the chocolate syrup is Gluten-free but are the other flavors Gluten-free as well?

Thanks!!

My understanding is that the Hershey's chocolate syrup is gluten free. However, at least as of a year ago, Hershey STOPPED saying that they disclosed all gluten, and started saying that they could not say whether the natural flavors in their products were derived from rye/barley/oats (my main concern would be barley, since they are required by law to disclose wheat, and I have never heard of rye or oats being a source of natural flavors. However barley, although unlikely to be in natural flavors without being disclosed, can be a source of natural flavors). There are a few items with natural flavors that they have verified as gluten free (e.g., as of last time I called, this included kisses and chocolate bars). Nestles, on the other hand, is still a company that labels for all gluten, not just wheat.

I just spoke with a Hershey's representative and they said that none of their artificial or natural flavors are derived from a gluten source. So I guess that means it's safe!

The statement Hersheys made to you today is in direct conflict with the statements they made to other members of the forum a few months ago (http://www.glutenfreeforum.com/index.php?s...44350&st=33) They will not confirm or deny if their natural flavors contain gluten. Hersheys is not a reliable company.

Hersheys has tested some of their products for gluten content. The very short list is below. I still will not buy any Hersheys product until they say whether or not there is gluten in their natural flavors.

Hershey Products that are Gluten-Free and Were Tested*

Kisses - Milk chocolate

Hershey Bar and Hershey Almond Bar

Jolly Rancher hard candy and lolly pops

Hershey's Cocoa - plain unsweetened

Unsweetened Baking Chocolate Bar and Semi-Sweet Chocolate Bar

Hershey Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips

Hershey Chocolate Syrup

When I called Hershey at Easter the rep I spoke with was really helpful. She went through every candy I gave her and told me gluten-free or not. It isn't as helpful as Wonka/Nestle who sent me a list and coupons (just received those today!), but my experience was very positive. I wonder if I just got a really friendly person...

I'm so glad to hear that Hershey Chocolate Syrup is Gluten Free! I've been staying away from it because it says 'artificial flavor' on the label and I thought I had to stay away from anything that said that. I've just recently been diagnosed with Coeliac and have found out a lot of info today.

Do any of you know whether the Mocha drinks at Starbuck's are gluten free? I asked one of the managers and we looked on the ingredients of the syrup and it said that there are 'artificial flavors' in it so I've been abstaining from my Mocha's. They told me I could bring my own syrup if I wanted to.

My husband has Celiac and he drinks the Mochas at starbucks all the time.

It's the "natural flavors" that you have to worry about, not the "artificial flavors" as far as I know. anything made from wheat, rye, barley or oats would be "natural flavors".

We've been trying to stay from the high fructose corn syrups and just discovered that Nesquick syrup is made from sugar. Still not good for you, but better than the Hershey's as far as the high fructose.

Does anyone know if chocolate in general is gluten-free? My husband was just diagnosed with celiac disease 2 weeks ago. He doesn't normally eat a lot of sweets, but he told me he's so hungry all the time now that he has cravings for chocolate. He is also wondering about sausage, bacon, and brats. He loves brats but was told by a coworker that the processed food was not good for him. Would meat like this straight from a deli counter be ok since it wouldn't have preservatives? (We are in different states right now due to my schooling, so I have been trying to help him from a distance. Everything in our house has gluten in it and anything he tries to make, our small boys eat up!)

Tell your hubby that you ALWAYS have to read the labels.

Things that you never would have thought had gluten in it, often do.

Hormel makes many gluten-free meat produts, including excellent Deli meat (Hormel Naturals I think). The problem with a regular deli is that their SLICERS and prep areas will almost certainly be contaminated.

As a point of illustration, Honey Baked Ham has wheat in the glaze. Never would have thought Xmas could be ruined that easily.

Keep reading and researching, it gets easier!

The Nestle strawberry syrup is claimed to be gluten free but I just read on their website that if their ingredients are derived from wheat, barely or rye and they are less than 20ppm gluten they are gluten free. I tried the Nestle strawberry syrup and got inflammation in my feet. So those who are hypersensitive to gluten shouldn't consume some if not any of these products.

They don't say that they won't disclose gluten.

 

"The best way to determine if our products contain a gluten ingredient is to read our product label. This label includes an accurate, current listing of the ingredients in our products."

    • You're welcome ritamichelle. Yes, if you are biopsy confirmed then it will be much easier to get your daughter tested. 
    • I agree that In people that have celiac there usually is a trigger. It can be physical or emotional stress as the article states. I wonder though if the people they say 'don't have the genes' are folks that simply have rarer ones. There is research on more genes. I discovered it when I was writing a paper for a class. It was a very long time ago in 'computer age' and my bookmarks died along with the computer I was useing. But it is out there on peer reviewed sites like Lancet, NIH etc. Since celiac was rarely tested for even a couple decades ago there are many folks that may have celiac in their family but it was never known. That was the case in my family. I am confident about that.  I always wondered why my Mom seldom left the house, spent a lot of time in the bathroom, was tired all the time and was always holding her hands the way she did.  Then I became her.  We have so much to learn about celiac. Personally I dislike the term 'NCGS' because it makes folks think at times they don't need to be as strict and it isn't as serious. Too many are told that their biopsies are negative and they then get the NCGS label if they had positive bloods.  I consider celiac to be a spectrum disorder. Not all celiacs have gut impact or at least haven't developed it yet. I had the neuro impact and DH from shortly after I was impaled as a young child. It was many years before any severe GI issues arose.  
    •     http://www.takepart.com/article/2014/08/11/coffee-adulterated https://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/how-was-your-morning-coffee-did-it-taste-like-mud-v6rfdmrrr92 http://grist.org/food/coffee-taste-like-dirt-thats-because-it-might-be/ " Using liquid chromatography, which identifies the individual chemical components of a mixture, the Brazilian scientists found wheat, soy bean, brown sugar, barley, corn, and rice commonly interspersed with the grounded coffee they tested. Large amounts of wood and dirt were also prevalent, an issue not only for purists who prefer to drink their coffee black, but for those with potential allergies to the unknown additives. As TIME reports, the scientists are identifying the rogue coffee with increasing accuracy:" http://www.bodyandsoul.com.au/health/health-news/is-there-wheat-hidden-in-your-coffee/news-story/a3d53a7c36b76156f08d89eab6a396b3   -----   I have also read other references to coffee upsetting those with celiac.   Personally I have a family history of officially diagnosed celiac even though I have never been diagnosed myself..then again Ive never been properly tested. My drs just keep saying the following symptoms are anxiety and wont refer me to a gastroenterologist for:   Loss of bowel control, pale coloured stools, severe bloating, passing undigested food, ataxia, vertigo, migraine headaches, feeling feverish, repeated ulcers on my tongue and in my mouth, feeling generally ill and sleep issues (mostly falling asleep when I dont want to but rarely insomnia).   Because they insist its anxiety as routine blood tests are normal they wont refer me to a gut dr. They did do a blood test for celiac once on my request but it came back negative. This does not phase me when it comes to my suspicians that gluten is an issue for me because:   1 I was on a gluten free diet at the time, hence why i was well enough to crawl to the gps office. 2 I have a family history of celiac 3 MY symptoms are alleviated by a gluten free, dairy free, oat free, corn free diet..and lately, coffee free it seems. Coffee has indeed become a problem for me recently. 4 I could not tolerate gluten based baby foods as an infant. I was admitted to hospital as a baby for being underweight because I was vomitting all my food up. They put me on gluten free formula and i was fine, stopped being sick and gained weight. I could have grown out of it but considering the symtpoms i get on a gluten based diet, i really doubt it.   -----   When it comes to the coffee, food manufacturers will do most anything to make profits if they think they can get away with it. We live in a world where money is most important and if they do get caught...they can always claim they have no idea how the barley got in there!    
    • If you have had a sleep study and been diagnosed, you have sleep apnea. It's definitely different than waking up to go to the bathroom. Are you using your cpap every night for The entire night. Naps too? SA can actually cause death so it's very Important for you to use it every time you sleep. Do you follow up with your doctor yearly? Sorry to sound like the SA police, but I know someone who died from it. He wasn't using his cpap anymore, thought it was uncomfortable.     What Is Sleep Apnea?   Sleep apnea (AP-ne-ah) is a common disorder in which you have one or more pauses in breathing or shallow breaths while you sleep. Breathing pauses can last from a few seconds to minutes. They may occur 30 times or more an hour. Typically, normal breathing then starts again, sometimes with a loud snort or choking sound. Sleep apnea usually is a chronic (ongoing) condition that disrupts your sleep. When your breathing pauses or becomes shallow, you’ll often move out of deep sleep and into light sleep.
