We are travelling to Florida in two weeks and want to know which store bought brands of ice cream are safe to buy for our peanut allergic son. In Toronto we consume Chapmans ice cream of which certain kinds are manufactured on nut free lines. Also, does anyone know if Ben and Jerry's ice creams and frozen yogurts are safe?

I recently found out from a link posted somewhere on this board that Ben & Jerry's has some nut-free varieties. Do a search on this board for Ben & Jerry's to get to the link to their page... they seem to be very strict at labeling. I was quite impressed - each carton is labeled according the ingredients used - one I saw actually had bold print warning that the supplier that they use for (some mix-in - can't remember what it was), also processed peanut-containing items. So they are warning of cross-contamination issues in their suppliers.

I haven't used Ben & Jerry's since I found out about my daughter's PA, but, coincidentally, I just went to their website today. They have a great FAQ section that includes questions related to PA (I did a search). It made me feel more comfortable with them, but still not 100%, since they weren't explicit on whether they used dedicated lines or not. I e-mailed them to find out. I'll let you know what they say.
We do use Breyers Vanilla with no problem. You might want to do a search - there have been several threads, I believe, about ice cream. You'll find lots of useful info there. Good luck!

I buy Bryers vanilla too but I asked Santa to bring me an electric ice cream maker for Christmas. I'm going to have fun experimenting with all the different flavors I can make.

There is definitely another thread on here re ice cream which had quite a lot of good information. In Canada, Chapman's ice cream is really good. They have on their website a list of products that have been produced in a nut free facility and ones that have been produced in a facility where there are peanut products. I know I posted their website on the other ice cream thread - let me try to find it now - can't right now, I'll go and try and find it on this site and re-post. Apparently, their website will even tell you where their products are available in America too. You should really try to find the other thread too if you can. Best wishes!

[url="http://www.chapmans.on.ca"]www.chapmans.on.ca[/url] If you look further down on the Manufacturers 1st page, you'll see my thread about Chapmans itself and then I'm not sure where the other thread is re ice cream, in general, in may be under Main Discussion but not on the 1st page. I hope this helps 'cus ice cream is just one of those things we'd like our kids to be able to eat and thankfully, they can! Best wishes.

I did go to the Ben & Jerry's web site. They do have a great FAQ section. If anyone wants to check it out their address is [url="http://www.benjerry.com."]www.benjerry.com.[/url] Please let me know what they say about dedicated lines. Last night, I bought a few of their flavors (Pulp Addiction and Fudge Brownie yougart.) Reading the labels, I could not find anything that made me nervouse about these two flavors. A lot of the "nut free" ice cream had "butter oil" listed as an ingredient. That made me nervous, and we stayed away from them. Tonight, I'm planning on giving some to my son. It seems that Ben & Jerry's is well aware of food allergies. They support FAN and have been in contact with them. If you get a chance, check out their web site. Being new at PA, I'd love to get others opinions on this. On a lighter note...my husband is just thrilled that we purchased this yummy ice cream last night, because I would not normally pay so much for ice cream.

I finally received a response from my e-mail to Ben & Jerry's regarding whether they have dedicated lines for their non-nut flavors. Here it is:
"We don't have dedicated lines for our nut flavors. However, we do have an 8-hour cleaning process in place between producing a non-nut flavor and a nut flavor. Hope this answers your question. Thanks for writing!"
Don't know if they've ever had any reported reactions to a non-nut flavor. But basically, it sounds like Breyer's policy.

I spoke with the rep from Safeway and was told that Safeway Select Raspberry and Chocolate Sorbets are safe. PA DD had the raspberry at lunch today with no reaction and loved it. It is also safe for dairy and egg allergic folks.

There is another thread on ice cream, so you may get deleted here...however, I dont think that soft serve ice cream is really ever safe..especially if they serve soft peanut butter ice cream too, or do once in a while. The question is, do you take the chance...which depends on past experience and your own feelings on it. It depends on how comfortable you are with the restaurant etc. For me, I have scoped out what places I can take them to and what places I can't. McD's is one of them, but not the blizzards.

Hi Kristy
I've heard that some ice creams can contain peanut based thickeners. Just read the labels.One dangerous place to buy ice cream is parlours with open tubs of ice cream (i.e. Baskin Robins). Ice cream containing peanuts sits open next to innocent other flavors. Also, scoopers merely sit in water between different scoops.
If you still want to go there, make sure you get a clean scooper and ice cream from an unopened tub.

Haagen-Dazs (i'm sure I spelled that wrong) doesn't have a peanut ice cream. I've been eating it for years and never had a problem. I've never had problems with Breyers (they make the best vanilla EVER) or Ben and Jerry's either. Haagen-Dazs is probably the safest.

Breyers here in Canada has the "may contain traces" on the label. Chapman's is ok though (the boxed flavours). Wish there were more out there though!

Hi...we just bought an ice cream maker too for $50 and not only is the ice cream delicious, it is a great family project too.
I hate going out for ice cream with the kids, absolutely hate it. I want to, but at the same time, I have to be extremely picky and such. Our local Carvels though is wonderful. The owner knows us now, and makes special provisions for our family. he will get out new sprinkles for my kids and he will open new containers of ice cream etc. He actually is the only "ice cream parlor" that makes it an enjoyable experience.
As far as store bought, we have never had a problem there..we just read labels.

My son is almost 5 and has never had ice
cream. I have always thought that they are
all unsafe. Even if it doesn't have peanuts
they are usually made on the same equipment
as peanut containing ice cream. It was
interesting to hear about Haagen-Daaz (I am
sure I spelled that wrong). I would like to
call them about that. We just bought an
electric ice cream maker from Wal-Mart two
days ago. It's a 2 quart and was only $15.
I want to try just the plain vanilla but I
have to scald milk first. Does anyone know
how to do this and do those of you with ice
cream makers also have to do this? It just
seemed like there was a lot to do before
putting it in the ice cream maker. I was
hoping to just add the ingredients and turn
it on. Maybe I was hoping for too much
(like usual! LOL!). I can't wait to try it
out though!

We buy Breyer's "All Natural" brand (vanilla or neopol. or peach only) and have never had a problem. Other labels on other Breyer's flavors I find questionable. I recently found out they do "not" have lines dedicated to nut-free only ice. cream. Meaning they may make the peanut butter flavor, wash the line, then make the vanilla. They claim they have never had a reaction reported to them.

Redtruck, you may want to call and talk to Breyers as their manufacturing practices satisfy me that even though the label says may contain the vanilla and other non nut flavours are safe. They manufacture nut and non nut on alternate days and spray pressure wash the equipment after every flavour run. Other Canadian manufacturers practices are not so stringent. You may disagree with me about Breyers but this is our decision. I also choose to use Chapmans when it is available.

hi ...The ice cream maker we purchased was a cuisinart and it takes no time at all. You add the ingredients, it rotates for 20 minutes, and then freeze it for 2 hours...that's it..and boy is it good.
there is no scalding of milk etc. It is very easy and hassle free.
*To scald milk..I believe you pour it into a hot pan that is on the stove to kill off any bacteria. I think...I am not a chef...husband does the cooking...lol

To "scald" milk- bring it to a boil then pull the pan off the heat. Discard the skin off the top after it cools. For details check an OLDER version of "Joy of Cooking" or an old Home Economics text if you can find in your local library. Also, a candy cookbook would be a possible place to check. The pan is no picnic to clean up. I can't think of any reason to do this with pastuerized milk. My mom used to do this when we lived in Latin America (and she darned near always burnt it too) before we were allowed to use it on our cereal.
When making home made ice cream, be careful about the eggs due to salmonella. When I was a kid our neighbors made ice cream with a hand cranked ice cream maker. They always cooked the mixture before freezing it. It was also called "frozen custard". There were other folks who would just mix everything up and run it through the ice cream maker. Not everyone used eggs either.

I think one of the best ways to buy icecream is to take your own clean container and go to a soft ice cream store. Have them wipe down the machine and pour it directly into your bucket. We do this at Dairy Queen all the time and have not had a problem.

Thanks to everyones comments about how to
scald milk. I checked my ice cream maker
recipe booklet closer and it said to heat
the milk until bubbles formed around the
edge of the pan. That's what I did. I
think the purpose of it is to help dissolve
the sugar that you add after you heat the
milk. Anyway, I tried the ice cream maker
last night and it worked great!! Even my
husband was so impressed (he said I out
did myself! Now that is a great compliment
coming from him. Of course, I didn't tell
him that I really didn't have a whole lot to
do with it. LOL! It's pretty easy). We
made vanilla and put fresh berries over it.
Guess who the only one in the family was
who didn't care for it too much? Yep, our
PA son who we bought the thing for in the
first place! Oh well, the rest of us love
it. I would really recommend it to everyone.
BTW, some of the recipes do call for eggs
but I will try an egg replacer since our son
is also allergic to eggs (in case he wants
to try some again).

We stick with vanilla, peach or strawberry produced by well-known dairies. I have a family member whose job is making ice cream in a large local dairy. He told me that the industry was well aware of the peanut and nut problem. Vanilla is always the first run of the day after the equipment has been double-sterilized the night before. The last ice creams run are the mix-ins...such as cookies, nuts, chocolate chips. So, we stick with the plain flavors.
Yet, a home ice cream maker sounds safe, fun and yummy.
To safe ice cream!

We stick to soft-serve places such as Carvel where they only have vanilla and chocolate. Some other soft-serve type places such as TCBY change their flavors daily, so we avoid those. We also use Breyers and Haagen Dazs vanilla.

Well, as far as I know, in the U.S. there are really no nut-free ice creams. All of them have some risk associated. I do purchase Breyer's and Edy's vanilla for my son. I have spoken with each of these companies and feel very confident that the risk of cross contamination for these two products is slim to none. Apparently, vanilla is produced on alternating days as other flavors and it is always the first flavor produced on a "clean" line. Hope this helps.

Chapman's says that any of their ice creams in cardboard are safe but not their tubs of yogurt. I do believe they have nuts in their facility as they make those cones which are dipped in chocolate and peanuts. Speak to them to clarify anything;they are very helpful. Also anything on a stick is fine too.

We purchase Breyer's All Natural Vanilla or Breyer's All Natural Neopolitian ice cream only but read the label carefully on any brand you purchase. These are the only two flavors I feel comfortable giving my p.a. child. There are only a few ingredients: (i.e. milk, sugar, vanilla.) I don't feel comfortable with the Breyer's Homemade flavors or any other flavors due to unclear labeling. When in doubt, I contact the manufacturer. If at a restaurant, I read the label on the box not them. We tend to only use ice cream we purchase at the grocery store. I am concerned now because I saw recently they have a Reese's Peanut Butter flavor now. Contact Breyer's on the internet for more info.

I still made my son's ice cream as instructed by his allergist. I've been making ice cream since june 99. I plan on double checking with the doctor again this summer. My son's off the traditional chart for peanut and is also allergic to egg, tree nuts, strawberries, and peaches. But the doctor was going on the fact that there is no dedicated lines in ice cream industry- re nuts.
Last year we had been giving son one brand store bought ice cream which was safe at the time we had talked with the company however they changed that line and added a run containing pecan's and one containing peanut. My son's cap rast on pecan was the only one that scores increased. peanut already being off the chart so no way to know if it increased.
In the ice cream machine I just make chocolate or vanilla bean because of all his other allergies and that doctor wants me to be careful even of flavorings if company makes other flavorings of things his allergic to then I don't use it.
Take Care,
Jan B.

To From the South: Just for your info, Breyer's has been making some version of the peanut butter flavor for about 4 years now. When I first checked with Breyer's they were NOT making that flavor. I called them several months ago just too make sure that their practices haven't changed and they were quite reassuring about the vanilla. I suggest everyone who uses Breyer's but has not called them personnally, to do so. They give a good, but lengthy explanation, on how they manufacture and clean their lines.

Smack: Ice cream is a tough one! We use Ben & Jerry's "World's Famous Vanilla". My suggestion to you is to do a search on here for ice cream and read all about it. Many PA people choose to make their own with ice cream makers.
I have yet to find a safe "dixie cup" (individual size) ice cream cups to use for school parties etc. I am always contacting companies and searching for safe ice cream.
I just found out that "Luigi's" Italian Ices are nut free. I have not tried them yet and will look for them in the store next time I shop.
Good luck!

When I first called the woman told me there is no ice cream run on dedicated lines, I then was transfered to the plant in downstate Illinois and the I bieleve superviser said that the vanilla, and ice cream sandwiches are run on a line that only runs the cups and ice cream sandwiches, the cups are a fudge swirl that he said he would have to check on the fudge but that was added after it same off the machine that was processing the ice cream and they have a sherbert, orange. Now I would encourage everyone to please not take my word and contact them yourselfes their number is 1-800-395-7004. Distributed by Dean Foods, I would ask to call the plant in downstate Illinois can't remember the town. My kids who are peanut and tree nut allergic eat these cups with no problem.

I see that you are writing from southern Ontario. You should be able to find Chapman's ice cream products in your area. In Kitchener-Waterloo, where I live, almost all the grocery stores carry their products.
The ice cream in the cardboard cartons (about 30 flavours), the ice cream sandwiches, and all the ice lollies (their version of popsicles) are safe for PA people.
Chapmans has an excellent explanation of its policy with regard to peanuts and other nuts on the company website, [url="http://www.chapmans.on.ca"]www.chapmans.on.ca[/url]
They don't even allow employees to bring nut products in their lunches!
Good luck finding Chapman's products

I use Breyer's vanilla and Dean's vanilla, and also Dean's mini ice cream sandwiches. He has been eating them his whole life without a problem. One thing I like about Dean's is that any of their flavors with peanuts or peanut oil include a warning after the ingredient list, along with a *picture* of a peanut! Very easy to spot!

Sandra, I checked Breyers already and the plain old vanilla had a "May have come in contact with peanuts or other nuts" so I don't bother with Breyers just in case. Anyway, Hannah I did check out the Chapman's and bought some. I called them last year about there ice-cream and looked it up on the net because I had bought the rainbow kind-van,choc,strawberry. Well I didn't have much luck with the rep's there about the neop.ice-cream so it left a bad impression. I had always bought like I said the Pres.Choice vanilla but I know they don't label there stuff so I stopped. Thanks guys!

It's my impression that chocolate ice cream is a problem because manufacturers tend to run this flavor last on their production lines. This is because any bits of flavor residue left behind is covered-up by the strong chocolate flavor. Vanilla tends to run first, before any other flavor.
