Does anyone use Ensure Plus? I saw on another board that this is gluten-free but somewhere on this board i saw that it may contain Gluetin? Does anyone know?

One of the makers of these products, either Boost or Ensure, has oat bran as an ingredient, which makes it have gluten. My husband called the Boost people & they said that their Boost is gluten free.

This is what I would do: go to store, copy phone number of company on paper and the flavor of the Boost or Ensure that you want to buy. Go home and call the company & ask them if that particular flavor is gluten free.

My husband had to stop drinking it because it bothered him for reasons other than gluten. He too needs to gain his weight back. I would also suggest that you put the gluten free Boost or Ensure in blender and add gluten free ice cream to it. That might make it tase better.

Good luck with the supplement.

Husband has Celiac Disease and
Husband misdiagnosed for 27 yrs -
The misdiagnosis was: IBS or colitis
Mis-diagnosed from 1977 to 2003 by various gastros including one of the largest,
most prestigious medical groups in northern NJ which constantly advertises themselves as
being the "best." This GI told him it was "all in his head."
Serious Depressive state ensued
Finally Diagnosed with celiac disease in 2003
Other food sensitivities: almost all fruits, vegetables, spices, eggs, nuts, yeast, fried foods, roughage, soy.
Needs to gain back at least 25 lbs. of the 40 lbs pounds he lost - lost a great amout of body fat and muscle
Developed neuropathy in 2005
Now has lymphadema 2006
It is my opinion that his subsequent disorders could have been avoided had he been diagnosed sooner by any of the dozen or so doctors he saw between 1977 to 2003

From what I understand, the oat bran is in the Ensure w/ added fiber only. According to the website, Ensure and Ensure plus are gluten-free. I've never tried the Ensure Plus, but I've had many bottles of regular Ensure (butter-pecan flavor) with no problems. A lot of people may think I'm crazy for saying this, but I actually enjoy the taste of the butter-pecan Ensure!
