I need opinions on this. I keep going back and forth on whether I can trust their instant puddings and gelatins. I would love to be able to just whip up some pudding for her but Kraft makes me so nervous, so I would love to hear from other people who use these products to make my final decision on whether I should let her try them. As always, thank you all so much for your input, it is much appreciated!! =D

Hi kcmom,
I do eat them.. I trust Kraft and have always eaten their products (I am in Canada).
In the "Hershey choc bar" thread below, FromtheSouth also posted that Kraft tests their products for allergens so they sound safe to me.

DD (PA and TNA) eats all sorts of Jello gelatin and puddings, including the chocolate flavors.
I have never called Kraft, by the time I understood about cross contimation and labeling, we had already been eating them for years.

Just a reminder and note: Jello also makes a Pistachio powder pudding mix, I have called on these and have been told they are run on the same lines and they clean them after running the pistachio. They would never tell me outright that there is no possibility of cross contamination.
We do not use powder pudding mixes anymore, but DD who is TNA/PA does very well with no reactions to date with the Hunt's pudding cups. They are easy, just open the top and there you have it, ready made pudding.
I have called Hunt's and feel safe with there answers to my questions.

My son is PA and TNA and we have used both the jello and the pudding and never had a problem. We usually only eat the vanilla pudding because I am not comfortable with any chocolate treats. But that is just because I dont want to confuse him. Hope this helps.

Canadian specific again, like erik, but yes, I do trust Jell-o gelatin powder. As far as puddings, my children have eaten the Jell-o ones and also the Hunts ones. I feel as though I have to do some further research though because in reading one of my children's magazines to-day, I see that Hunts is actually owned by ConAgra and I know many American friends who did not feel okay about ConAgra.
For contact information for companies, I always go to [url="http://www.nuconnexions.com"]www.nuconnexions.com[/url] Although Steve hasn't up-dated the information in a bit, the contact information is still valid and also gives both America and Canadian labeling practices.
Here, in Canada, I have had no reason not to trust Kraft (yet, touch wood).

We're not huge pudding and jello eaters here, but when we do, it's the Jello brand only without problems.

Never hesitate either, although I do our own pudding here. Much better taste, less sugar. The gelatin however I buy.
(Again, Canadian specific, although I do buy Jello gelatin when in Florida, and have not encountered a problem)
