I would like to know if it is ok to chew CeliAct or it has to be swallowed whole.  I could not find any instructions on the proper method.

 

I know some vitamins have a protective covering so it will not dissolve until it reaches the intestines.

 

Then some other vitamins are chewable.

 

Which is the approved way so I get the most out of CeliAct.

What do the directions on the bottle say? Maybe email the company and see if it makes a difference? Usually, if a vitamin is meant to be chewed, it will taste good.

If it was a chewable tablet it would say so on the label. Swallow it whole. As an aside you may be able to get higher levels of the vitamins we need with regular gluten-free vitamins at a much lower price. If your doctor will check your vitamin levels you can pinpoint what you need to take mega doses of more easily.
