Hi- I found this fabulous site as I was doing some research for a client of mine. I have family members who have Celiac....Both have used slimfast with no reaction....but have to say as far as loosing weight goes...I work with a company that has a product called "Going Going Gone" -supplements are gluten-free and really work to take off the lbs...my family members are soooo happy about it!
Here is a link to their ingredient list: http://www.arbonnema...1857_us_eng.pdf
You can email me if you have any questions.

I am gluten free because it helps with my IBS-C problems and I too sometimes have a hard time finding a quick bite when there is little time to prepare anything. I was hoping Slim Fast would be an option. Here's what is posted on their website:


Question: Is Slim·Fast gluten free? I have Celiac Sprue and want to use the powder shakes.
Answer:

As you are aware, having the condition Celiac Sprue prevents you from eating such grains as wheat, rye, barley and oats. We do not guarantee that any Slim·Fast product is Gluten-Free. All of our powder shakes clearly state that there may be traces of wheat in them. As for our other products, the ingredients we purchase could potentially be cross-contaminated with wheat or another common dry ingredient you are sensitive to also. A small amount of gluten is potentially present in Slim-Fast from the fiber source. And, ingredients change often, based upon availability. For these reasons, we cannot say that Slim·Fast is gluten-free.

Here in Canada, the slim-fast optima say in the ingredients "may contain Wheat". I use the Glucerna shakes for diabetics, they have a slow releasing carb which is better for you. And they are gluten free!! It's a good alternative when you have nothing gluten free on hand to eat.

The EAS body for life shakes (not the metabolife ones) are my heroes.

I called them and they are gluten-free. They do contain soy, though. About 110 calories and lots of protein.

Here is their web site: http://www.slim-fast...t/question.aspx
I would ask their registered dietitians if their products are gluten free.

I have searched and searched and am unable to find out if Slim Fast is Gluten Free?

Of course, I am one of the many people that are overweight and have Celiacs, I excercise everyday, eat good and I still couldn't lose a pound if my life depended on it.

I just checked their website @ http://www.slim-fast...categories.aspx and it says:

i noticed that when i had a strawberry slim fast in the morning, i became extremely gassey and bloated. now, it might be coincidence, but those symptoms are usually my main problems when it comes to consuming gluten. i would be careful.

I have been using the easy to digest ones and have had no problems. Then, my store stopped selling that kind, so I checked the regular ones for ingredients. I didn't find anything bad, so I starting drinking it. Bad. I am miserable.

You are replying to a 3 year old thread. Ingredients may have changed. Not everything that is gluten-free says " gluten-free" on it. If you only eat things labelled gluten-free, you are missing a lot of fruits, veggies, rice, meats, etc.
