Propel is made by Gatorade, so you may have it over there. It's relatively low-cal, I think 25 calories per serving, which is 8 oz. It also has B vitamins, maybe some others.

Is Gatorade gluten-free? I remember looking at a label and noticing it was made by Pepsi, but the flavour I looked at had "natural flavour", so Non-gluten-free boy got the gatorade and the gluten-free boy got something else.

Hi Cytomax is also gluten free. I got this reply from Cytosport:

Our entire line of Cytomax products are gluten free. However, there are a

few flavors in our other lines that you would want to stay away from:

Cookies n Crème

Chocolate Banana Crunch

Chocolate Mint Chip

Modified food starch can be made of many things.......not just modified wheat starch. Usually it is corn. Coca-cola makes the product. They say it's gluten free. If you don't believe me, then please feel free to e-mail the company then you can feel 100% sure. :)

Also, Hammer Nutrition products...a lot of them are gluten-free. They started making bars that are gluten-free, but they're actually just the same as the Orgnaic Food Bars they sell at whole foods and other stores like that...Seriously, exactly the same, except bigger and cheaper.

I recently wrote to Coca Cola in regards to Powerade. Here is what they told me as of Oct 16th 2006.

"Thank you for contacting The Coca-Cola Company,

We are able to confirm that Coca-Cola classic, caffeine free Coca-Cola classic, Coca-Cola

Blak, Coca-Cola C2, Coca-Cola with Lime, Coca-Cola Zero, Barq's root beer, caffeine free

Barq's root beer, diet Barq's root beer, diet Barq's Red Creme Soda, Diet Coke Black

Cherry Vanilla, Diet Coke, Diet Coke with Lime, caffeine free Diet Coke, Diet Coke

Sweetened with Splenda, Sprite, Diet Sprite Zero, vanilla Coke, diet Coke vanilla, cherry

Coke, Diet Cherry Coke, Fresca, DASANI Lemon, Minute Maid Light Lemonade, Simply Lemonade,

Simply Limeade, POWERade Mountain Blast, and our 100% juice products (without added

ingredients) are gluten free.

Additionally, we can tell you that all of our other products meet Codex's definition of

gluten-free, which is currently less than 200 ppm (parts per million) (0.02%) gluten.

Codex is in the process of reviewing this standard and we are monitoring the progress

closely. At this time the U.S. Food and Drug Administration does not have a regulatory

definition of gluten-free.

We can assure you that the exact amount of gluten in these products is very low - perhaps

even zero. Some minor ingredients in these products are manufactured from plants that

gluten-sensitive people could react to, so we are unable to state categorically that they

are totally gluten-free even though they may have undetectable levels of gluten in them.

The Codex guideline provides a very low threshold for gluten content. However, extremely

gluten-sensitive individuals should discuss consumption of these products with their

health care provider.

We hope that this information is helpful. Should you have additional questions or

comments, please visit our website again.

Lesley

Industry and Consumer Affairs

The Coca-Cola Company"

Ok, so that means that only the POWERade Mountain Blast is garenteed to be gluten free. The other flavors may or may not be. I hope this helps clear it up for some of you.

Propel is great....it should fall out of the clouds instead of rain. Haven't noticed anything with powerade, but I don't drink it terribly often, I don't like it as well as propel.

I found this product called nuun, it is a portable electrolyte drink. It does not contain gluten, its vegan, and it does not contain sugar (confirmed by the company) so it will not upset your stomach and its really great. I am a huge fan. you should check it out at nuun.com :D

ok looking for a low cal sports drink, think i may have chronic dehydration as im still C and drink an awfull lot of water, am worried that i may be watering down my nutrition, looking for something packed with nutrients, if there is such a thing, im also lactose intolerant. im in the uk so has to be a company that will deal over seas. anyone have any thoughts? cheers.

We are currently looking into Eload - triathletes, cyclist, runners use this drink to stay hydrated through marathon's and the taste is soft. Helps with recovery and electrolyte balances. Not very expensive either. Great to use during a weight training session also.

Hope to have the official word from the supplier in the next 72 hrs.

All the best,

Pete & Elaine

There is a product on the market called Eload, it is completely gluten free, so is there emmend. These are electrolyte balancers and help with rehydration for high intesity sports. Very much recommended.

If you still have the chronic dehydration, you may want to see a rheumatologist to ask about Sjogren's Syndrome. I've read that it's present in about 15% of celiacs (MUCH higher than the general population). SS is another autoimmune disorder that attacks the moisture glands and can cause dryness anywhere in the body.

    • WOW.  That looks eerily familiar.  Last December the temporary provider here at my local (rural) clinic gave me doxycycline to experiment with, but it was a mere ten milligrams.  Lol, no wonder it didn't help!  I'm glad you're feeling better.
    • I got cross contaminated some time ago & the rash came back pretty badly. I've attached a photo taken on June 11th of my back. It was also in my scalp, around my neck, on my front, shoulders, inner wrists and more.   Tonight I am not itching at all! I haven't itched all day long!!!! I can't take Dapsone because I'm allergic to sulfa drugs & Dapsone is a sulfa drug. Obviously that means I also can't take any of the other sulfa drugs that are used to treat dh after Dapsone is not an option. After those comes tetracycline. I really needed some relief! I began researching the dosage & particulars on tetracycline for dh. Extensive & exhaustive research did not pan out. The best I could find was treating Bullous phemphigoid. That said something like 500mg of tetracycline 4 times per day and about an equal amount of niacinimide. I really didn't want to take that much medication and in such strong doses. So my doctor (my PC doc) & I began experimenting. We tried Doxycycline 100mg twice a day. It seemed to be helping some but it just wasn't enough. Then we upped it to 200mg Doxycycline twice per day. It has taken about 5 days of that & I sit here not itching all day for the first time in a long, long time! This may not work for everyone. I did want to post it though as it is, at present, working for me. I am not thrilled at taking it but I have toughed this rash out before for years with no meds and I just couldn't do it again.
    • I laughed out loud at the 'little notebook' comment!😂 It has been interesting to see how much progress has actually been made over the past 10 years that there is even a notebook to be offered or a restaurant to eat in that will accommodate our 'allergy'. 10 years ago I feared that I would never eat in a restaurant again.  But the notebook comment is spot on.  Hopefully within the next 10 years restaurants will evolve enough to offer us a menu that clearly lists the delicious and extensive offerings that they have lovingly prepared just for us...and not just an ingredient list with nutritional values that take longer to read than War and Peace.   I am grateful that there are places to go that at least make the effort.  Who knows?  Eventually there may be restaurants which will have to offer menus with GLUTEN options available!
    • Thanks for posting this Adrien, it's a great list and I and others will appreciate the effort and the thought behind it. I loved my time in Malaysia and I'm glad I sampled all the food I could whilst I was still on an unrestricted diet. The good thing is that, like you say, some of the nice Malay foods are still ok. As a backpacker I survived on a lot of nasi goreng and laksa, nice to think if I return there I could still do the same Terima kasih!
    • I have posted on here before. DQ2, brother with celiac, DGP iGA was the only mildly elevated test. Was gluten-free so did 6 week challenge last winter. Negative biopsy. I am gluten-free now but do go out to eat. Prior to the challenge my health was good. Since then I have: Chest pain, pain between shoulder blades, periods of shortness of breath, heart palpitations, one instance of a heart arrythmia episode, neck is tender to touch on one side (they kept saying sinuses or TMJ which my dentist vetoed) ear ache, bowels never sink. Numbness and tingling. Blood pressure variations. Could be doing chores and feel dizzy and it might be 84/52.  not super low, but not typical for me if I'm running around the house.While other days I am mildly hypertensive. Recently lost 5 lbs in 8 days without trying. Recently electrolytes were low, alkaline phosphatese was low. Ferritin started dropping so started liquid iron 2-3 times per day 4 months ago. Primary watching that, I am not anemic but we are nowhere near iron overload either.  GI doc was a dick. Did not even know DGP replaced older tests and he was very condescending When I begged him for help recently and told me to get a second opinion which is exactly what I plan on doing.  I now have pain in my upper GI area. It is tender to touch. I had my gallbladder out in 97 along with a stone and infection in my bile duct. It hurts in this area. Pancreatic enzymes look fine, liver enzymes fine. Pancreatic ultrasound fine. I will now be doing a EUS Soon to look at bile duct, pancreas and liver.   so a typical day for me is that I might feel fine for a while and then suddenly feel like I'm going to pass out. really dizzy, numbness in odd places, like my body has been hijacked. I will typically eat a bunch of food something high protein and in about an hour or so I start to feel better. However, then my upper stomach starts to hurt in place of the passing out feeling. blood sugars are also normal. After getting the " it must be panic attacks" and condescending looks a million times my primary finally ordered an ultrasound of my sore neck and there is an abnormality in my thyroid which she says looks like possibly Hashti's. Except for one time, all my serum TSH tests were normal. We have more blood work on Monday. As I have not put on any weight and there are other symptoms that are closer to Graves.  Has anyone else had any thyroid issues that followed doing a gluten challenge?  where is your stomach pain? Do you have it above or below your belly button? Mine feels like it's in the pancreas area, like 2-3 inches above the belly button and when I push on it it's tender, but not all the time. sometimes i feel it in my back.
