Hi everyone! Today’s gluten free question of the day is: “Are skittles gluten free?” Skittles are a popular, intensely fruit flavored candy treat that so many people of all ages love. But, are they safe for Celiacs to eat? We did the research to find out.
Do Skittles have gluten? Or are they gluten free?
Good news everyone – Skittles ARE gluten free! Hooray! I just love when we can add another candy to our list of goodies that are safe for Celiacs to eat – and anyone with a gluten allergy or intolerance, too. Skittles proudly declare right on their packages that they are gluten free. So yes, they are definitely safe to eat.
Are Skittles vegan? Do they have gelatin?
Gelatin is often derived from animal sources, and so if a candy or food contains gelatin it isn’t safe for vegans to eat. But, happily again – Skittles does not contain gelatin! This means that Skittles are vegan and vegetarian, and just about everyone can eat them.
