I eat Clif bars and they don't bother me, but I' also eat oats. I did just have for the first time a Lara bar--that was really very yummy...can't say for sure if it is really an energy but, but it was super yummy :)

Hi! Jelly Belly has just come out with "Sport Beans" recently. I checked with the company and they are gluten free (here is the response)

Your Question :

Are your Sport Beans gluten free? Thanks-

----------------------------------------------------------

Thank you for visiting our site. We hope the following information answers your question.

Thank you for writing. You will be happy to know that our Sport Beans are gluten free. Thanks again for writing and have a sweet day.

----------------------------------------------------------

I actually haven't tried these yet myself, but hear they are good and portable, though a bit on the sweet side. Here is the site that has more info on them if you are interested: http://jellybelly.com/msib21/PromoSites/Sp...SportBeans.html

Sounds kind of crazy to me, but then again it's nice to have something that isn't always a bar.

GeniSoy soy protien shake powder is gluten free and wonderful! I have the vanilla but found other flavors gluten free as well. They have a website too www.genisoy.com. Enjoy!

I like Ruth's Flax Bars. (Some of the hemp bar flavors have gluten - always check ingredient labels!) They're the closest thing to a real granola bar I've found. (I don't do oats.)

Bumble Bars are gluten- and dairy-free: http://www.bumblebar.com/

All except one flavor (lemon) has nuts, so I've only tried that kind. It's not bad. Heavy on the sesame seeds and quite sweet.

I'm fairly sure most of the flavors of Balance Bars are gluten free.

Costco sells some gluten-free protein bars and protein mix. From just looking on the ingredient lable, the Fudge Graham flavored Zone bars (but not the Chocolate Peanut flavor Zone bars) appear to be gluten free and the Pro-Rated protein whey protein powder is gluten free. The Alpine Vanilla Pro-Rated whey protein powder is pretty tastey.

Most are BUT they also make them on equipment which handles wheat products so they will not call them gluten-free.

I'm a big fan of Prana bars. Taste good, and don't sit like a rock in my stomach, like some bars do!

So are PowerGels not gluten-free? On the powerbar site, it tells you not to eat the bars because they have gluten in them, but it doesn't say anything about the gels.

Its LaraBars for me.. sure - they are just fruits and nuts but if you're looking for the instant calories (ie: energy) and some potein.. they are great. Here's one: Cashew Cookie.. just cashews and dates. 230 cal, protein 5g, 0g chol, fiber 3g.

I like Bumblebars and Larabars - and cashew is my fav. I just bought some new Larabars called Maya. I want to try one, but dinner is only an hour away. Has anyone tired these yet?

I've had the regular chocolate and chocolate mint. They're both fine, but very much like the regular larabars in texture. Having made similar things, I'm a little disappointed they don't improve the texture, but it's fab for grabbing and throwing in my daypack for a hike.

Thanks Tiffany - I was also hoping that the new bars would be a different somehow. Oh well. I like having a Larabar on hand, they're very filling.

This is familiar territory for me! I'll apologize in advance for the looonnnggg reply!!!

I did a search when I got diagnosed back in 2004, and here are the replies I got then from PowerBar & Clif Bar:

FROM POWERBAR:

Thank you for contacting PowerBar on the Internet. We welcome

questions and comments from our consumers.

We appreciate your comments and feedback. The PowerGel is gluten free.

Please call the consumer group at 1-800-58-power with further questions. Thanks for your

support!

Sincerely,

Steve

Consumer Relations

Ref: Y9504593

FROM CLIFBAR:

Thank you for taking the time to contact us and for your interest in our products. While we do not source any ingredients from wheat or dairy in our CLIF and Luna Bars, unfortunately, they are not gluten free. Gluten is found in the rolled oats and barley malt in the Clif Bars and most flavors of Luna Bars. In addition to malt, MOJO contains organic pretzel pieces made from wheat, which is also a source of gluten.

Three flavors of Luna Bar lack the barley malt, and only contain the rolled oats. Many gluten intolerant folks find that small amounts of rolled oats are tolerable. These three flavors of Luna are Cherry Covered Chocolate, Chocolate Peppermint Stick, and Sweet Dreams. We also have a new high protein bar out, Clif Builder’s Bar, which also lacks the barley malt and only contains rolled oats. All three flavors of the Clif Builder’s Bar are free of barley malt.

I hope this information helps, and I’ll certainly log your vote for us to make a gluten free product!

Cheers,

Thomas

For training (I do marathons, shorter road races, and triathlons), I use PowerGels and GU, as well as Gatorade and GU2O. I recently tried the CLIF Shot Bloks; according to the package ingredients, they are gluten-free.

Certainly we Celiacs have some unique challenges in fueling ourselves for fitness, but don't be discouraged...it's definitely do-able!

Good luck!

~Kerri

    • Gluten does WHAT to the brain?
      I hear you Gemini. It's nucking futz!

      I went gluten free & never looked back! I have dh, the celiac rash. That makes it pretty darn easy to go gluten-free the moment you figure it out. I was not about to continue eating gluten for even one more day just so the medical establishment would be satisfied in my dx. There was not a moment of doubt in my mind that I had dh & therefore celiac. As it turns out, weirder than weirder than weird and the odds I can't even begin to imagine.... I have since, by sheer accident, had 2 docs officially dx me. Is that crazy or what??!! I did not go in asking for a dx nor even hoping for one. Frankly, I just plain didn't care what they thought. The medical community has failed me numerous times throughout my life so I don't have the highest regard for them. You are 54, I was 54 when I figured mine out. I have no kids so did not need to consider them in my decision not to go for an official dx. My parents had already passed away so that was not an issue. My brother had passed away so that was not an issue either. I did contact my nephew & tell him to let my sister know so she could get tested. So I have done my duty by her & she's an adult and a nurse & can make her own decisions. I do urge people to go for an official dx whenever possible, especially when they have kids or other 1st degree family members. If it's doable for them I think they should make a good effort at it. Also, there are certain people who express they don't think they can stick to the diet without the official dx. I think those people should pursue a dx with all their might. I have never had the slightest problem sticking religiously to gluten free eating. I have never doubted myself. I know you have tired HARD! Super, super HARD. I commend you for your dogged pursuit. I would not, could not blame you for giving it all up & just going gluten free this instant. That is a choice only you can make but I fully support whatever decision you make.
    • Gluten does WHAT to the brain?
      Your brother sounds like mine, Squirmy.  He was a Type 1 diabetic and had flaming celiac symptoms to boot but his docs always, always blamed his diabetes on everything.  He lived in the country and the docs in his state just were so far from being Celiac savvy.  I doubt they ever diagnosed one. His health was failing so badly that in the end, with the 3 MONTHS of non-stop diarrhea going on, he became so dehydrated that he had a heart attack and died last August 4th. His biggest mistake was trusting these idiots completely.  I think his brain was so messed up and confused that he just couldn't understand what I was trying to tell him.......that good ole brain fog.  He did what celiac's may do when left untreated for years and years.....they slowly fail and then die.  It still is extremely painful for me to think about because I was close to him.  I still see many people in my life that I think have it because of their extreme symptoms. Listening to them complain that the doctors aren't helping them. Try suing them for malpractice too......it would be too hard to prove. And then we have those who know there is something very wrong but won't give up wheat bread because that is unfathomable to them.  This disease can drive anyone crazy, for many different reasons.

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
