I'm not an expert on hidden gluten but I would want to know what "Natural Flavor" is and whether there is a chance for cross-contamination in the manufacturing process. If it was me, I'd call the company and ask before trying it. Maybe others are familiar with this particular product.

You need to check on natural flavors--sometimes it comes from wheat, and I've also seen barley. I've not often seen natural flavors from a gluten source, but always check, just in case.

Doesn't seem to be. I would make sure their natural flavoring is gluten-free. But Kashi is good about listing wheat if it's in there, but that still leave barley,rye and oats. I would call to be safe.

Any wheat is required by law to be listed.

Wheat may be required to be listed, but just about everyone on the site can tell you that it can be hidden in alot of things, and that ALOT of products do NOT list all of the gluten in their products.

Kilcan: I apologize for not clarifying. My post was more in reference to another post, that said wheat could be hidden, and I was just clarifying that (I should have quoted, which I didn't). But by law, wheat is supposed to be clearly labeled---and that was my only point.

I fully agree that there are products that don't have a gluten policy, and I fully agree that you should check with the company. Another poster had already made that point, and I agree with it. I am a board member that says you should always check if in question; I was tired last night and didn't write a more detailed response, esp since the correct answer had already been posted.

Hope that you are able to enjoy these :)!

I just spoke with a customer representative and he assured me that the only two Kashi products that are gluten free are the chocolate and vanilla powdered shakes. He said the natural flavors are derived from non-gluten products.

    • I am sorry that you are sick!   Unfortunately, all celiac testing requires you to be on gluten.  😔.   Testing is usually not over until you get an actual diagnosis, but it appears that you may very well have celiac disease.    Here is more information: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ http://theceliacmd.com/2015/06/six-reasons-to-test-for-celiac-disease-before-starting-a-gluten-free-diet-3/ in the meantime, you can eliminate dairy products temporarily.  It may provide some relief.  
    • Karen, the iodine test was a test for DH used in the 'olden' days. Iodine would be swabbed onto a spot and then it would be covered with a bandage. If someone had DH the iodined area would break out in lesions. I don't know how but we do know iodine can activate the antibodies. That is why some of us with DH have to avoid iodine in foods until the antibodies have cleared the dermis. OP, if you haven't been tested for celiac you should be and if you have active lesions a biopsy done next to a lesion by a DH knowledgable dermatologist may help in diagnosis.

    • What's an " iodine test"?  Haven't heard doctors doing that to diagnose DH.
    • Hello! I've just been given my blood results and told they are highly suggestive of coeliacs but will have to wait till next month to see the gastroenterologist and who knows how much longer for a biopsy. My igA, igG and tissuetrans igA were all over 250 and tissuetrans igG was the only one that was normal. These results don't mean much to me yet but I'm told they are very high. I'm now quite fearful of how much damage I've gone to myself. I've had stomach problems for 25 years (just turned 40) and have often steered clear of too much bread and pasta for how bloated it made me feel but the symptoms were always vague and inconsistent so I kept eating. I had a couple of boats of gastro in the past few months (thanks kids) which I took a lot longer than normal to recover from which looking back may have been related. Then last Friday I had a blowout with wine, cheese, crackers, pizza and chocolate cake. I'm sure I've probably had blowouts like that before but I have never felt so sick before and am still slowly recovering. This is what finally prompted me to go back to my GP after being fobbed off so many times over the years. So I guess my question and my concern is whether there is still  chance of a false positive with levels like this? I worry what else it might be if not coeliac. I'm also worried that I may have done so much damage to myself that I will have several disorders going on! I'm also still recovering from last Friday and wondering when I'm going to feel better. I've stayed off gluten and dairy since my blood result a couple of days ago but feel like I'm allergic to food in general.  Thankyou!!
