I emailed Solaray to ask if their Astaxanthin (1mg, 2mg or 4mg) is Gluten Free.

 

They responded telling me to call their "Nutritional Products Helpline" (800) 227-6063.  They wrote... "please note that we cannot respond to your inquiry unless you call".

 

So I called their Helpline... talked to "Sue"... and was informed "that product is NOT certified Gluten Free".

 

Not sure why they couldn't just say this in an email, but... good to know!

They know that a certain percentage of people will take it anyway, if they don't know any better, since it takes so long to get ahold of pharm. companies for info.  I was on hold several times for multiple hours over a medication and finally said "Well, I'll just go with their more expensive competitor.  Screw them."

 

I would imagine that they also don't want it in writing anywhere, incase the origin of their ingredients changes - plausible deniability if they tell someone it's gluten-free and then the ingredients change in 6 mos. and get people sick.
