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.

    • I think the posters above have given you very good information and I will throw in my 2 cents worth.  I am surprised that they did not test her DGP IgA also.  I am sure that would have been positive.  They switched off with antibody classes and usually they do both tests for both antibodies.  IgA is more specific to Celiac but the IgG is also useful.  The testing shows your daughter is producing antibodies to the gluten in her diet. (DGP IGG). THe tTg shows positive for some damage or inflammation. You know........your daughter is only 4.  She hasn't been on the planet or eating gluten that long. It can take years for enough damage to occur for it to be able to be found on biopsy.  I would say it is highly likely that this is Celiac, especially with her symptoms. But because the damage hasn't graduated to bad enough yet, they won't diagnose her. I think you need to do what others have said and get all copies of testing and find someone else who will take a look and give a diagnosis, especially if they have you do a dietary trial and her symptoms go away.  That might be the only recourse if you want faster proof. I know I would want faster.  I would not really be happy if I thought I had to keep feeding her something that was making her sick.  If you keep her on gluten long enough, the diarrhea will probably show up. BTW.........the criteria mentioned regarding diagnosis does not apply to kids.  I know it's silly and stupid but most leading Celiac specialists do not go by this criteria for kids.......adults only.  Keep that in mind because it might come up.  You could recognize it but they might not. Have you considered gene testing, to help bolster a diagnosis? As far as false positives go, it's the other way around. False negatives happen more frequently than many people think.  It's a recurring theme here.  With her symptoms, which is what I had, a bloated belly and tummy aches are telling.  Have they tested her for lactose intolerance?  That can cause similar symptoms, although it sure won't raise those 2 blood tests.  Keep looking for Celiac because there are many red flags here.
    • This 4 out of 5 criteria does not apply to children. I was never given a reason why, but it isn't.     That said, you may try to get a second opinion from another GI who may be willing to give her a firm dx.  We were in your boat 6 years ago and while I'm sure I'll get slammed for it, I wish we had kept gluten in our kiddos diet till he scoped positive for a variety of reasons.  Again, even family is different and you have to find what is best for you!
    • Mnoosh, I had swollen lymph nodes prior to celiac dx and for a while after going gluten free. My neck as well as groin. The groin ones were the worst. Guess what? All gone! It's hard to recall a time line & consider that everyone is different but I think mine completely resolved within a year.  You've been given great information. Just breathe and then again, breathe. You're going to be fine. 
    • It is the only thing you have eaten, so it can't be anything else?  I eat it with no issues so I am not sure how you can be certain that is the problem.  All I am saying is that its sort of "your word against mine and the company's word".  
    • Thanks cyclinglady & manasota! I appreciate it. I came to give an update...... I'm still 99% itch free. I get a "place" like a bug bite once in a while that itches and I just use the prescription steroid cream on it & that takes care of the itch. My rash is healing up rapidly everywhere. Almost clear skin now! Yaaaaayyyyyyyyyy! Now for a rundown of the "treatment". For 20 days I took a 100mg doxycycline twice a day. Then we upped it to two 100mg doxy twice per day. I took those for 5 days & made rapid progress and the itching stopped. The doxy was getting my tummy though. It was getting really rough despite my eating yogurt. So on day 6 and day 7, I took two 100mg doxy in the am but in the pm I just took 1 of them. On day 7, I was nauseous for hours on end. So since I was still doing well without itching and the rash was healing everywhere, I decided to cut back some more. On days 8, 9, & 10 I have only taken two 100mg doxy in the am and none at night. I'm doing good and my tummy is much, much happier! No more nausea!  I'll update as things go along.
