Does anyone know if water ice is gluten-free? I love it and with the warm weather coming I was wondering if I can eat it or not. Any advise would be appreciated. Thanks :D

Hhmm, my question, too. Water is gluten-free, so ice made from it would, logically, be gluten-free. Unless "water ice" is a new product somewhere?

Water ice is sort of like really fine-grained sorbet, a frozen dessert/snack that is fat free and not dairy-based. My guess is that "natural flavors" would be the questionable ingredient.

Don't feel bad for not knowing; I remember a few years ago, before it became a big thing, my husband and I saw a little place called "Rita's Water Ice" and just about died laughing! Now, we understand.

Wow, I guess I just assumed everyone knew what water ice was. :unsure: I have to say that I am surprised at the replies. I am from the Philadelphia area and water ice is a known thing around here. Just as popular as our soft pretzels or cheesesteaks. :D Anyway, it is like Italian Ice, flavored shaved ice. Does anyone know what Italian Ice is?

PhillySwirl Italian Ice (cups and Stix) are gluten-free and dairy-free. Is that the same as "water ice"? Me and my kids were pretty amused by it. We're from California and it is Hawaiian Shaved Ice out here. We just make our own with a machine, but it doesn't quite come out smooth enough. I plan on getting the PhillySwirl when Costco starts selling it again in the summer. They only carry it seasonally. :(

    • Dr. Alessio Fasano from the University of Maryland's Celiac Research Center published a paper in Clinical and Developmental Immunology last month. It focused on a new drug developed by Dr. Fasano that has shown promising results in both animal and human trials. But is this the 'magic pill' that will cure celiac disease and gluten sensitivity? Let's take a look. View the full article
    • Thanks for this, ironictruth. I personally believe that should my dx be accurate, it's not recent; my complaints are pretty consistent and go back years. But the logistics of analysis and reporting methods are always at play and you've raised some great points that are helping me think through this a bit more. Regarding #4, I've been reading that IELs are typically found more towards the base of the villi and thin out towards the top, and that celiac can affect this distribution by making it look more uniform (because of more IELs present at the tip than usual).  What you say about blunting affecting that is interesting, but the Marsh classifications include both degree of atrophy/blunting and the IEL counts, no? So it must be possible to still gather info on IELs even when villi are blunted. I will have another endoscopy at some point to assess a change following the gluten-free diet, I think what I'll do it try and get the same blood work done that was initially positive somewhere along the line as well. If that all comes down, then I think I'll feel a little more certain that I'm in the right place diagnosis-wise.
    • Thank you guys! I am afraid to do the gluten challenge because eating gluten makes me bed ridden sick. I've read on different sites on how much you need to consume for 'X' amount of time, but is it really necessary to suffer that long? I want to make sure that I have plenty of time to consume gluten before going back to the doctor to be retested, though. It just seems like torture is all. I appreciate all of the support already! Thank you so much for the replys!

    • Exactly!  It talks about moderation in meat consumption.  It never says we all need to go vegan.
