Multivitamin That's Gluten-free, Dairy-free And Soy-free?
0

20 posts in this topic

I need a multivitamin, which used to be such an easy thing to find but now that I've learned I shouldn't be eating soy or casein in addition to gluten - Yikes! Is there such a thing as a gluten-free, CF, soy-free multi?

EDITED to add: While I"m at it, I also need to find a calcium citrate / magnesium supplement...

Thanks for your help :)

Thanks so much - And they're vegetarian and kosher! Wow. I will definitely bookmark that site.

They don't claim to be soy-free but two out of three ain't bad (for now). I'll contact them to see if they actually use soy ingredients in the multi.

I'm also soy, dairy, and gluten free, and I use GNC's Solo Day (a multivitamin) without any problems and have for months. Plus, it's only about $6/bottle; GNC's website will tell you what the vitamins are free of, too, if you want to check out other ones.

I take Yummi Bears multi-vitamins. They are the only vitamin I've found that don't give me a stomach ache. They are free of: yeast, wheat, milk, egg, soy, gluten and salt. You can buy them at drugstore.com.

most vitamins I've checked out tend to be gluten and dairy free... soy is more what you have to watch out for out of the 3 foods you listed... anything with vitamin E (either a vitamin or food) I'd check with the company to make sure it is not derived from soy...

I have a multi-vitamin from Pure that is free of gluten, casein, and soy... as for cal-mg, there's a calcium-mg citrate powder from Thorne that is free of the above as well..

In case anyone is interested, I just verified that Freeda's vitamins are all soy-free!

Thanks for the info on Freeda. I've been taking their prenatal but since I'm eating meat now, figured it was too much iron now. I was looking for something else but maybe I'll just go with another of their products.

I LOVE Freeda vitamins! I am taking their prenatal because I was low iron, but I also take their CoQ10 and their sublingual B12. My dietician gave me an entire PACKAGE of information about them . . . she recommends them because they are free of so many irritants. I have had no trouble with them whatsoever . . . also, they're having a 20% off sale because of their anniversary year, I think . . . . I also had a coupon that was in my packet for $5.00 off, I believe. Ask them about any specials they are having. They are great to work with, as well.

I think that the reason many people are unsure about ingredients in vitamins (gluten, soy, etc.) is because only until recently did vitamin manufacturers provide that info. For example, my husband and I used GNC brand and in 2004 we asked a GNC store manager and called GNC to find out if they were gluten-free and of course we got the "we can't guarantee cross contamination - we do not know if the individual ingredients, which we buy from others, isn't gluten-free" statement.

Hence we stopped buying GNC and purchased Freeda from then on.

Hi... I would like to share a website with everyone that I found to be extremely helpful. The vitamins and supplements are free of everything. No gluten, no binders, fillers, and the best form of b12 (methylcobalamin). I have purchased the Emerald Labs supplements from this website with great satisfaction. I have found I am allergic to so many things every other brand I've tried in the past year has failed until I found this one. Happy to pass on the information.

For anyone looking at Freeda vitamins, many are NOT soy and corn free. I used this thread to find the information, but after a wicked reaction to the vitamins, I contacted Freeda directly. Many of their vitamins are made with soy and corn, though they state the manufacturing process rremoves most of it.

But they do state if you are intolerant or allergic, you may have a reaction to many of their vitamins.

Generalbrock,

 

Unfortunately you used information that was from 2006.  Companies change formulas all the time.  In the Celiac/Intolerant World you have to read each label every time.   Hope you find some vitamins that work for you.

I take Vitafusion gummy vitamins. They're very specific in their labeling: "Contains no wheat (gluten), milk eggs peanuts, shellfish, or soy. The facility that manufactures this product also produces products that contain soy."

 

I take a multivitamin and a calcium-with-D. They also have a B complex, a B12, a C, a D without calcium, prenatal, mens' and womens' specific multis, and several other types.

 

The store-brand knockoffs of these that they sell a lot of places (I've seen variations on them at Meijer, Wegman's, and Target) have the same label, and appear to be exactly the same product in a different bottle, usually a few dollars cheaper. You can also get them online.

    • egs1707. Are you in Canada?  It's NOT a good idea to go gluten free between now & the GI appt. and here's why.... MOST of us have MUCH stronger reactions to gluten when we go back on it for the endoscopy. A lot of people have had such strong reactions that they have been entirely unable to complete the challenge and have to call it quits. This means they never get an official dx. It's your call, you make the choice. However, I will say that you don't have to eat a lot of gluten, a couple saltines or a slice of bread per day. 
    • You mentioned the tight head. Yes, both my celiac sibling and I had head pressure. Mine was horrible last glutening with eye pain as well. Like someone put a vice around my temples. I swore it felt like a parasite infected my gut, thyroid and brain. It is going away mostly, still have it on and off a bit.  My brother said his naturopath informed him some celiacs get a bit of inflammation in the brain.   
    • Hi All this is my blood test result 1.immunogloblulin serum 203 ( 87-350) 2.Deamidated Gliadin IGA  4 ( 0-19 negative) 3.Deamidated Gliadin IGG 3(0-19 negative) 4.Transglutainase IGA <2 ( 0-3 negative) 5.Transglutainase IGG <2 ( 0-3 negative) does it mean most likely no celiac ? thanks.  
    • At the moment it's microwave rice packets as it needs to be something easy for lunch at work. What do you choose for breakfast? At the moment I have gluten-free porridge oats with fruits but also seeing oats are a bit of a gamble in the early days. Trying to figure out how long a reaction takes to show up i.e. if I feel ropey later in the day is it really lunch as I'm blaming at present or actually is it something from the morning or even night before? The food is the toughest bit for me right now; wasn't that great with it before so will need plenty ideas from you good people... seems I'm in the right place though   
    • I know what you're going through - it's that grieving process and it's tough.  I was diagnosed in 2013, and aside from an occasional pity party, I don't look back. I have my restaurants where I feel safe, I have the food I know I can eat, and I get on with my life.  I'm lucky that I live in a big city with lots of options, but you can make this work, and you will feel better and once you do, you'll stop grieving.  The people on this site helped enormously. It is tough in the beginning to know if you've been 'glutened' vs. just going through withdrawal.  For that reason alone, it's best to avoid restaurants for a little while and be careful at home - just to be sure what's happening.  Eventually you'll be able to get back to your version of 'normal'.  Oh, I also have hypothyroid/hashimoto's.  No big deal, I take synthroid. Quinoa, eggs, nuts and beans for protein.  You don't have to go crazy on the cooking.  Just eat a lot of whole foods.  There are a lot of complicated recipes out there, but now may not be the time.  Rice noodles in veggie bouillon - easy and cheap.  gluten-free pasta with olive oil, parmesan and garlic - easy.  I eat a lot of rice and have never had a problem - you're not getting it out of one of those bulk bins, are you?  That could be contaminated.  Go with packaged.  Do you have access to the Macro Vegetarian brand of prepared rice dishes (in the refrigerated section).  They have several that are gluten free, they're delicious heated and with a little gluten-free soy sauce.  They're my go to on days I don't want to cook. Good luck!
