Ice Cream?

I just always thought ice cream was all gluten free. Someone I met with Celiac was telling me which ice cream was okay, so apparently not??

What about soft serve ice cream at restraunts?? She told me Blue Bunny is safe, of course with nothing like cake, brownies, etc mixed in.

I don't know about in restaurants. I can eat Mayfields - do you all have that in your towns? - the mint chocolate chip, I can eat that. and it's a real treat, let me tell ya! Dairy Queen says their soft serve is gluten-free, but I haven't had that.

I have been having DQ and been fine. Just don't get the Blizzards as they mix over and over and may have mixed an oreo or something before you. All the brands I have found at the grocery seem fine unless they have the obvious - cookie dough, pie, etc. I emailed Edys' which is in our area & they made me feel more confident that ice cream is OK.

Bryers and Dryers both have a gluten free list of their ice creams on their webistes. Most of the varities are gluten-free, except for the obvious ones. Be careful of Walmart Brand (great value) Ice Cream..it says right on the label may contain wheat.

We eat ChickFilA's icecream in a cup (no shakes), DQ ice cream in a cup (no blizzards due to the CC of the different ingredients) and Wendy's Frostys.

Good Luck!

I can't find the Breyer's gluten-free listing... Does anyone know if the Reese Peanut Butter Cup ice cream is gluten-free? http://www.breyersicecream.ca/en/products/fun_and_indulgent/reese_frozen_dessert.html# It has modified corn starch and modified milk ingredients and I never know what that means...

Thanks!

I think I found the answer to my own question... http://www.unilever.ca/resource/faq.aspx:

"If our ingredients contain even trace amounts of peanuts, tree nuts, sesame, milk, eggs, fish, soy, sulfites or wheat (and ingredients that may contain gluten), it will be stated on the label."

:D !

Ice cream is pretty much universally safe except the obvious stuff with cookies, brownies etc. There are one or two chocolate or fudge (I forget which) ice creams with barley, but the barley is listed. Read your ingredients.

Blue Bell Chocolate Ice Cream has wheat as an ingredient--beware of that one!

A delicious dairy-free alternative is sorbet... The really good stuff is Hagen Daz, I love the mango or raspberry flavours.

Also want to mention that the info I found/posted is Canadian and the ingredients are sometimes different for the U.S.!

Another good dairy free alternative is So Delicious Coconut Milk ice cream - it is really good, too! I like the green tea flavor (different, but very tasty) and the mint chocolate chip.

    • I have 2 copies of DQ9. One from each parent.
    • Obviously from the outside it's difficult to comment, but if I were you I'd leave allergies for now and pursue definitive celiac testing via your doctor and preferably a gastroenterologist. They're the first port of call for digestion issues. If you do wind up being celiac it's possible that other allergies or intolerances would resolve or improve in any case once you've been on the diet for awhile. That's been my experience.   Ps note that wheat allergy is completely different and unrelated to celiac or non celiac gluten sensitivity. 
    • Thank you ps, it may be better if the thread title was changed as we now have two 'overwhelmed' topics. If it were 'Bile ducts and celiac?' then it may attract more users with direct experience?
    • Hello and welcome Maybe? From reading others accounts there's a big variation in how quickly gluten antibodies respond to the gluten diet. I did similar to you and my doctor said that 1 week back on should be enough to show up in a test, but he didn't know what he was talking about sadly... The 2 week figure refers to the endoscopy, for blood testing 8-12 weeks on gluten is more normal.  Basically if it comes back positive fine you have your answer. If its negative it may be a false negative due to your going gluten free beforehand. If you want to pursue a diagnosis then yes. Don't go off gluten again until you confirm that all testing is complete.  Keep a journal noting any symptoms, that may be useful to you later. More info here: There's some good info in the site faq: https://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/announcement/3-frequently-asked-questions-about-celiac-disease/ I know how you feel! Partway through my gluten challenge I knew that too results notwithstanding. Fwiw I think you've found your answer. Good luck!
    • Learn more about testing for celiac disease here: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ You do have to be on a gluten diet for ANY of the celiac tests (blood and biopsy) to work.  While the endoscopy (with biopsies) can reveal villi damage, many other things besides celiac disease can cause villi damage too: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/what-else-can-cause-damage-to-the-small-intestine-other-than-celiac-disease/ So, both the blood test and endoscopy are usually ordered.  There are some exceptions, but those are not common.
