Gluten free icecreamQ. A question from one of our readers: 

Where can I buy Gluten Free Ice cream?

Does anyone know of any gluten free ice cream available in the supermarkets in Victoria.
I have Coles and Woolies and Iga and Aldi 

A.

The gluten free state of ice cream will vary from brand to brand and flavour to flavour. You need to look out for things like caramel flavoring, which can sometimes contain gluten, or any that use a wheat thickener or wheat glucose. I have found plenty of options at the local supermarket from reading labels, and I always ask what brand the ice cream is when I eat out, or google. In more recent years, I have given up dairy to tend to opt for sorbet, coconut yogurt or make my own ice cream with a banana base.

We also have some other great questions from readers like “What ingredients should I be wary of in ice cream

    Gundowring GF

    All Gundowring icecream except licorice flavour is lab-tested GF. It’s the yummiest icecream around, with a huge variety of flavours and all natural. Not cheap but worth it 🙂

    Gluten free… Maybe not
    by: Anonymous

    Be careful of the thickeners. Our dietician advised avoiding additives 400-450 which most ice creams contain and our gluten intolerant daughter seems to react to.

    gluten free ice cream.
    by: Anonymous

    My housemate is coeliac and I looked at most of the ice-creams available. It appeared only Bulla and Cadbury (The expensive creamy classic and creamy vanilla only) did not contain wheat or other gluten product.

    BEWARE the same brands in the cheaper range contain plenty of gluten, only the 2 litre $9.00 tubs apparently are gluten free, however I looked up the thickeners, emulsifiers and colours and found the colour is made from wheat.

    It is not supposed to have an affect but my house mate looks like he has had boiling water poured over him from the top of the head down. It is only the ice-cream I can think of.

    Beware of Cadbury!

    At Coles this week I checked all of the Cadbury containers as I was desperate for a fix and all flavours were labelled as containing gluten 🙁

    ICE SCREAM
    by: Ruark

    I spent a lot of last night checking on-line details of various ice-cream companies,

    http://www.goldennorth.com.au

    most are safe -(check their very long list on-line){Do they sell their ice cream in NSW?)

    http://www.bullafoodservice.com.au/frozen/ice-cream-tubs.html

    BULLA is safe

    except – Bulla Creamy Classics Cookies & Cream, Bulla Creamy Classics Caramel Toffee Crunch, Bulla Crunch Bars & the Ice Cream Sandwich range.

    http://www.weis.com.au

    almost all WEIS is safe

    http://www.nestle.com.au/OurProducts/Cat/Ice_Cream/No_Sugar_Added.aspx

    NO ADDDED SUGAR is safe

    http://www.streets.com.au/products/magnum.aspx

    most of the MAGNUM range are safe
    ________________________________________________
    Unfortunately WEIS and Nesle-Peters are pretty expensive. I am impressed that all these companies have fact sheets or nutritional information that reference the wheat content. But I think as almost every one here says, it’s best to check packaging in case the ingredients changes.

    Is Timboon ice cream gluten free?
    by: Anonymous

    Does anyone know if Timboon ice cream the honey Combe version, if it is Gluten free? I asked the store person and they said it was, however I found I become ill after eating it. I can not be certain that it was the ice cream as I did eat other things. It would just be good to know.

    I noticed on a meal tray delivered to a patient at the Warrnambool Hospital, that the icecream cup was an Everest product and was labelled gluten free, but have found that it still pays to read all the labels. PS it was yummy

    cross contamination
    by: Anonymous

    Beware of reading ingredient list on products that say GLUTEN FREE. I picked up a meal replacement called Lady Bird. I happen to read the ingredient list as I don’t eat some additives.Below in small print it said, manufactured where gluten was. I rang the company and said it was illegal to have Gluten Free on packaging and have a warning.The person I spoke to was not happy with me telling him it was illegal. I rang the Coeliac society vic. They confirmed that Gluten Free, must be GF.Ingredient lists that read ok for GF are not necessarily so.Cross contamination I have found to be the most challenging.

    GF ice cream
    by: free-one

    Most ice creams are gluten free. Check the ingredients list where any ingredients containing wheat/gluten must be identified by law.

    You do not need to be concerend about Glucose Syrup (from wheat) – it has been so processed that it contains no detectable gluten.

    Flavours such as cookies and cream and ice creams with added ‘chunks’ should be avoided.

    Streets, Cadbury and Bulla vanilla ice cream and their basic flavours contain no detectable gluten.

    Gluten Free Icecream
    by: Nadine

    I actually use the Coeliac Society iPhone App Ingredient List. One of the problems is many manufacturers change the ingredients of their products. Just read the labels and check the ingredients. Weiss is gluten free and dairy free but I never buy anything unless I check it first.
