Heavy Whipping Cream Gluten-Free?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I just did some searching around about this and saw a reply on Wiki Answers about this at: http://wiki.answers.com/Q/Is_heavy_whipping_cream_gluten_free The only reason I ask is because of the reply on Wiki Answers, but I am sure they were using a different kind of Heavy Whipping Cream...

Anyway, I have a Great Value brand in front of me and it has no milk and I have checked the ingredients with the ingredients to avoid on celiac.com Everything seems to be fine. Here are the ingredients: Ultra-pasterized Heavy Cream, Carrageenan, Mono and Diglycerides, polysorbate 80.

I have used this in the past to make Fettuccine Alfredo - which is one of the foods I eat a lot. I'm thinking it should be fine...

It is gluten free. The person referenced in the wiki answer sounds like she might be dairy intolerant.

No need to avoid dairy unless you are finding you are having trouble with it - some folks need to avoid dairy when first gluten-free because it is hard to digest when the villi of the small intestine are damaged.

Milk, cream and butter are naturally gluten-free. If something is added to them, it is possible that gluten could be present. The only case I can imagine would be chocolate flavored milk, which could possibly contain barley malt.

If you have decided to avoid milk...you do realize that Cream is milk?

Or, at the very least, contains lots of lactose. Churning it into butter would remove most of the lactose (although not all)

Just read your post regarding giving up milk. This would mean you need to give up cream as well. You can make sauces with rice milk, almond milk or coconut milk.

Yeah, I am finding I am having a ton of trouble with milk products. So right now I am definitely dairy intolerant. I honestly had no idea. I just found out a bunch of products have milk in them and this is why I am feeling so terrible. I am glad that I am finding out so much in such a short time-frame from being diagnoses with Celiac.

BTW, I did some research on milk alternatives and did find out about rice milk, etc. I am thinking about trying rice milk at this time, since I have read some reviews claiming to taste similar to regular cow's milk. Of course I'll have to supplement the Vitamns, etc from cow's milk with other foods.

Rice milk doesn't really taste like cow's milk, but to pour over milk and cook with it is a great substitution. You might want to grab one rice and one almond at the store. I have one son that prefers almond and one that prefers rice - no telling which you'll prefer.

or try So Delicious Coconut milk. Tastes great, has lots of calcium and works well in just about every recipe that calls for milk.

    • Sounds great, one of my dreams is to open a grain free/gluten free food truck.......stone and mortar places would not do well here, but a mobile one able to cater....LOL dream I know, fundraiser has flopped and been running for a year. Hell I had the quotes up, the whole sale contracts setup, the business model and plan. I even tried to get loans, and business partners.....all flopped.
    • Just opened in Cincinnati, Oh: Ma and Pa's Gluten Free Cafe. Dedicated gluten-free restaurant. I had the pizza hoagie and onion rings last night. I forgot just how oily onion rings were. They sat in my stomach like concrete all night long but tasted great. Next time I'm getting the pizza or pulled pork with slaw and fries.  
    • Nope, had the flu and this has happened before when I ate the chili. JMG, I read the deadspin article. It's pretty funny. First, at least we're not bull testicles(Montana), and second, Skyline is the only one claiming to be gluten-free besides Hormel(sucks) and Amy's(sucks) that is Cincinnati style. There are many other local chili's but none are gluten-free. Gold Star is good but they say they're shredded cheese isn't even gluten-free. Like I said, Cincinnati style is the best. It's supposed to have roots from the Mediterranean area. Gold Star is ran by Syrian family, there is one or two others that are ran by Greeks. I kinda agree with the article when it comes to Skyline but I can walk in a store and buy it in a can. I started to thaw so meat yesterday to give it a go but am out of Cumin. No chili today
    • ....post is 12 years old, please check the dates, On a side note to this topic, I had no gluten issues with tide but it caused itching for other reasons I went with Rockin Green and Mollys Suds for a natural detergent years ago. You get like 70-90loads from a bag try, Amazon, Luckyvitamin, or Thrive for them.
    • Really interesting point Kareng.  In fact, my ttg went up this autumn (November), depressingly, and I saw a nutritionalist earlier this month and she doesn't want to retest til March.  She felt it was too soon for those figures, too.
