Is Jello Gluten-Free?
Jello Pudding is made by Kraft and it is a completely gluten-free product. Most of the Jellos Puddings available today don’t have any ingredient containing gluten in them.
Some Jello pudding snack packs may contain barley in the ingredients. You should look closely at the ingredient list on the packaging to determine whether or not the Jello pudding contains barley.
However, the brand does not conduct tests to ensure it has below 20ppm gluten, so Jell-O products are not considered gluten-free by the FDA.
It’s usually safe for people with Celica’s disease or gluten intolerance to eat jellies made from gelatin desserts and puddings made from pudding mixes. If you have a severe allergic response to any level of gluten, it’s probably better not to eat it at all.
Jello Puddin’ has been found at potlucks and kid birthdays since the 1950s. It’s a great treat both for kids and grownups. There are countless different recipes for serving Jello desserts, from strawberry pretzel Jello casserole to sugar pretzel Jello cups.
Though Jello can sometimes come off badly, there’s no doubt that it brings fun and excitement to children and adults alike.
Jell-O Pudding Ingredients
Jell-O pudding is delicious, but if you’re allergic to gelatin, you may not enjoy eating it. Jell-O pudding is made using skim milk, water, sugar, modified corn starch, cocoa processed with alkali, corn starch, sodium stearoyl lactylate (for smooth texture), sodium alginate, calcium phosphate, natural and artificial flavor, vitamin A palmitate, vitamin D, and artificial color.
You should be able to find a version of jell-o pudding without any of those ingredients listed above. You’ll probably have to look at the label to figure out whether or not it’s safe for you to eat.
If you’re allergic to products with gluten-containing ingredients or dairy products, you might want to avoid Jell-O pudding. However, there are plenty of alternatives available. Try making your own Jell-O chocolate pudding snack instead. Or try making a fruit salad with fresh fruits and whipped cream.
