We suggest that all members of the SCD community go to
and scroll down to the "Contact Us" and let Dole
know what you think of their action in changing a
formerly safe product.
Kirkman Supplements Alert
The following Kirkman Vitamins are no longer SCD legal. We called
Kirkman and they confirmed that this is true.
TMG 500 mg with Folinic Acid & Methyl B-12 - Hypoallergenic
DMG with Folinic Acid & B-12 - Hypoallergenic
TMG with Folinic Acid & B-12 - Hypoallergenic
Kirkman Multiple Vitamin Pro-Support has removed "no starch" from the
label. Someone called to find out why and was told that the chemist
says there is a trace amount of starch from the vitamin E.
In-depth checking needs to be done before we safely can say that the other Kirkman supplements are legal. There were several efforts recently to talk to the head of Kirkman but
he was unavailable. An employee of the company said that Kirkman
specialized in GFCF products.
It is very important for a supplement company to have a good
understanding of SCD in order to be able to produce supplements that
are compatible with the diet. Elaine helped Freeda to make the
supplements that contain the SCD label. All the GI ProHealth supplements
are carefully monitored by an expert on SCD.
We hope that an autism organization will provide testing for SCD supplements.
Periodic lab testing of supplements is the way to go.
Until we get this done, do not blame SCD if you are not getting good
results and are using supplements that were not made especially for
We hope that one day, Kirkman will want to talk with SCD representatives.
Tropicana Orange Juice Alert
A while ago, a list member called both Welch's and Tropicana about their calcium fortified juices. BOTH companies use a calcium supplement that has starch in them. This makes their calcium fortified juices illegal.
Recently, Tropicana changed their packaging; both the Tropicana Pure premium Orange Juice
with calcium and the Tropicana Pure premium Orange Juice without calcium look almost identical. You need to inspect to insure that you are buying juice without any added calcium.
