Question

Is Caramel Gluten Free?

Answer

In its basic form, caramel is typically gluten-free as it is made from sugar, water, and sometimes butter or cream.

However, variations and commercially produced caramel products may include gluten-containing ingredients, so it’s essential to check labels or opt for products labeled as “gluten-free” to ensure safety for those with gluten sensitivities.

Detailed information

Caramel is a sweet, chewy confection made by heating sugar. It undergoes a process called caramelization, where sugar is melted and browned, creating its distinct flavor and color.

Butter, cream, or milk are often added for richness. Caramel is used in various desserts, candies, and as a topping for ice cream or other treats.
