Chocolate Chip Ice Cream
0

7 posts in this topic

Hi

I've checked the ingredients of my favourite Chocolate chip ice cream from Baskin Robbins and I think it's gluten free. These are the ingredients that I got from their website:

Ingredients: cream, nonfat milk, sugar, corn syrup, semi-sweet chocolate chips (sugar, chocolate liquor processed with alkali, butter oil, cocoa butter, soya lecithin), whey, natural and artificial vanilla flavor, cellulose gum, mono and diglycerides, guar gum, carrageenan, polysorbate 80, annatto color.

Just wondering if it's safe to eat? I've read previous threads on Baskin Robbins and understand that most of you avoid their ice creams as they do not guarantee being gluten free. But if their ingredients do not contain gluten, it should be okay to eat right? Or is there a risk of getting cross contaminated (even if I buy the pre-packed ones)?

Thanks!

I don't know either, but was going to post a similar question about ice cream too. Mine was Bryers, choc chip mint. Which everyone has told me is an OK ice cream to eat. When the ingredients say 'whey' in a dairy product, are we to assume that is is from the milk whey??

Whey is just part of whole milk. I worry about places like B R because piece of ice cream cones could be broken in the ice cream. Not sure where they pack the pre made containers. You might ask.

I have called several companies (including Bryers, Tillamook, Haagendaz) about the risk of CC in the non gluten containing ice creams. The answer I got from all of them was that they couldn't guarantee that there wouldn't be any CC, because all of the ice creams are produced on the same equipment.

Thanks for all your replies. So I guess the risk of cross contamination would be for any ice cream since the gluten free flavours would be packed/made in the same facility as the gluten flavours.

RiceGuy, the gluten free ice creams look great - too bad they aren't available where I stay:(

There may be risk of CC. Someone who knows will hopefully reply.

However, there's always the gluten-free, dairy-free products such as Purely Decadent and Coconut Bliss.

3 cheers for Purely Decadent and Coconut Bliss! I'm very dairy intolerant (it seems to have gotten worse over the past few months...). Those two brands are the only ones that work for me, and don't taste like ka-ka! Good luck! Read labels, and call and bug manufacturers! They love it when we do that! ;) I do it all the time! If I'm in a grocery store, odds are, I'm on my phone at least once calling "random company # 35" to verify their gluten-free status! :0)

    • Yes the first has wheat gluten in the ingredients, the second via the wheat flour. Here in the UK manufacturers HAVE to highlight gluten sources. Check the ingredients and if WHEAT, BARLEY, or RYE are mentioned *usually highlighted, italicised or underlined, then you will know there's gluten. Most of iceland's processed foods will probably be gluten filled to be honest. Any breadcrumbed or battered foods for instance.  Ps, you and me both have another disease, the british one of apologising  You don't need to, you're very welcome here and all of your questions are valid and understandable. It's going to get better  
    • Hi, I am deeply sorry for posting on here again. As I am scheduled for an Endoscopy on the 9th May, I wanted to make sure that my gluten intake is being kept the same. I was wondering if the ingredients to these products contain gluten even though dextrose is in one of them? http://groceries.iceland.co.uk/iceland-32-breaded-chicken-nuggets-448g/p/52275   Chicken Breast Fillet (60%), Water, Wheat Flour, Breadcrumbs (Wheat Flour, Dextrose, Salt, Yeast), Rapeseed Oil, Salt, Wheat Gluten, Sugar, Yeast Extract, Garlic Powder, Onion Powder, White Pepper, Dried Sage. http://groceries.iceland.co.uk/iceland-10-breaded-chicken-burgers-550g/p/52276 Chicken Breast Fillet (60%), Water, Wheat Flour, Breadcrumbs (Wheat Flour, Dextrose, Salt, Yeast), Rapeseed Oil, Salt, Wheat Gluten, Sugar, Yeast Extract, Garlic Powder, Onion Powder, White Pepper, Dried Sage. Thank you for all your help so far,
    • JMG got it down pretty much, the painful and gluten effects from eating it should clear up in a month, damage symptoms you might notice some differences as early as 2-4months but most do not noticed major improvements til about 6 months to a year. I have been gluten-free for over 3 years all my villi have healed according to the doctor on my last scope. It is very important to not cheat and avoid any kind of CC as it can set you back weeks or months. I would suggest a whole foods only diet for the first month or two, no dairy, simple stews, soups, etc. make for easy to digest and simple meals. Check out the 101 thread for some good information. PS a new combo crockpot, steamer, rice cooker combo and liners for a crock pot will be a life saver for making simple meals and easy clean ups. Quick cook microwave ware will also be handy making sure you have gluten-free cooked meals if you can not get new cookware immediately. I normally suggest cleaning out the entire house, scrubbing down knobs, handles, on the drawers, sink, fridge, cubbards etc.  throw out condiment jars, checking ingredients on everything in the house including your hygiene and makeup. Putting in drawer organizers for new utensils, throwing out scratched glass, teflon, plastic, and steel cookware. Throwing out any Tupperware, and cutting boards, some utensils that can not be cleaned well. Some times you can save cast iron and stainless steel cook ware if you can run it in your ovens cleaning cycle over 600F. Gluten is a protein like blood if you can not clean a item where a CSI team will not find it give it up, it is not a germ that can be killed with disinfectant.  I use freezer paper for clean prep surfaces, also makes clean up a breeze, I tend to use gloves alot also when fixing foods,
    • Hi Allie and welcome First off, I know 3 years was a long wait, but at 17 you've figured out celiac way before many people do. That should make a big impact on minimising its effects and helping you with the diet, so, bizarrely enough, congratulations!   A lot of good advice has been brought together in this thread:  Don't worry that your symptoms are bad now. As you follow the diet your body will begin healing itself and you're still very young so hopefully this will go really smoothly. Think in terms of the next 6 months rather than weeks however, recovery will likely take a little time. Eat as healthily as you can, lots of whole foods and try to avoid the gluten free processed substitutes as your digestive system needs all the help it can get at this moment.  You may want to avoid dairy as well for now and think about reintroducing it later. This site has been really helpful to me and others. I hope you find it just as useful. Best of luck!   ps, your increased reaction to gluten during the challenge phase was perfectly normal. Many find that reintroducing it much worse than the initial affects and take some time to get over the challenge. That's why you'll see lots of posts here urging folks to 'stay on gluten' till their testing is complete!   PPS( )  Inasmuch as your post can convey emotion, your's seemed positive  Stay that way! At times the diet can be a bit isolating and some friends and family may struggle to understand. I'm sure it will be difficult at times making good choices and staying vigilant when everyone around you doesn't have to think twice. Stick with it, your health is paramount and it will be worthwhile. In time your good friends will get it and those that don't aren't worth worrying about. There are great foods you can eat and if not, learn to cook them yourself  
    • Hi! My daughter is 19 was diagnosed at age 16. It took about 12-18 month s for her to fully heal from the damage and feel "normal" again. Also because of the damage done she had reactions to dairy, so you may want to try no or minimum dairy until youre fully healed. Just a suggestion. Hope you start feeling well soon!
