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.

    • Ok, I can't seem to find my first lot of blood tests that were done for Celiac screening, they did include TTG I remember that much, and I am getting another copy of it but another test did come in today.  I don't know how different tests are done around the world and I don't get all the medical jargon but this is what it states, ******************************************************************************* HLA DR/DQ Genotyping for Coeliac Disease, Specimen type : EDTA blood Method : Detection of sequence-specific oligonucleotides (Gen-Probe). HLA-DR - 1, 13          DRB1 - 01, 13 HLA-DQ - 5,6        HLA-DQA1 - 5,6      HLA-DB1 - 05, 06 Interpretation : No genotype susceptibility for coeliac disease.  The DQ2 and DQ8 antigens associated with increased risk of coeliac disease were not identified in this patient.  In the absence of these antigens, coeliac disease is extremely unlikely.   *******************************************************************************   I have read the horror stories of blood tests and scope biopsies not be done right or flawed but here is what I do know as of now, At the moment the most non invasive test I can have done say negative.  I have double scopes (endoscopy and colonoscopy) booked for the 12th of October with results from biopsies expected a week or two after. Chances are they will show, a) signs of coeliac disease (even if the odds are low it can still happen), b) show signs of something else entirely and we will be busy dealing with the ramifications of that or c) it will show no signs of coeliac but I will still be suffering from gluten sensitivity (which is harder/impossible to measure clinically). My GP has told me that stress and anxiety can be a cause of all the symptoms I have been experiencing and suggests if the scopes show nothing that I may benefit from something to treat anxiety, i.e. antidepressants.  Not in a, "Oh we don't know what it is so have these," kind of way, he agrees with the thought that the scopes could indeed show coeliac, something else or even be negative. I did tell him that I could have a sensitivity and that even without benefit of clinical results, some people have gone on a gluten elimination diet for a period of time to see if they get any relief.  My question is this, if the scopes come up negative and I try eliminating gluten, how long would it be before I saw any results or improvements?  I have read enough here and elsewhere to know that everybody is different, some see results within days, some see results longer but are there any guidelines for how long a test like this should be undertaken for?  I have heard everything thing from two weeks to two months.  All of this is entirely moot at this point but I know that even if the results said clear, there would always be a little part of me that wonders if it could be a sensitivity that is the problem.  Any thoughts or advice greatly appreciated, and a thank you to all those who have taken the time to respond and offer advice and encouragement so far.

    • Thanks I never heard of that dye before, I guess I have to find more natural meat thanks for the suggestion. 
    • Yes, I only eat one meal a day. Sometimes salad or fries or whatever I can find. And thanks for the replies again.
    • A colonoscopy is not used to diagnose celiac disease.  An endoscopy is used to obtain biopsies in the small intestine.
