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.

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!

I know this is an old post, but i thought i would pass on some info.  I have had the brain fog more days than not for a long time and I have been trying to figure out what the cause is.  I drink an ensure plus almost every morning and thought that maybe there were trace amounts of gluten even though it states "gluten free" on the label.  I called Abbott Nutrition a few minutes ago and spoke with Eric.  I ask if their Ensure Plus product were gluten free and he said "yes".  I then asked if that meant that there is 0 gluten in the product or if there were just low traces (so many ppm).  He stated that "all ensure plus products contain 0 gluten."
