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.

    • Marip, Have you been diagnosed with celiac disease or Non-celiac Gluten Intolerance?  I notice you joined in 2014.  Did you ever go guten free?  How can we help?   Sorry, I'm not a stool expert!  You could Google it...  Malabsorption?  Standard lab tests that check for anemia and vitamin deficiencies, etc.  should help make that diagnosis.  
    • You can eat just a slice or two (or equivalent) of bread a day for accurate testing.   I understand about the high deductibles.  We're self-employed and we pay for our health insurance. 
    • Sure, if it's gluten free, then fine.  I am very allergic (like anaphylactic) to ibuprofen and aspirin.  So, in my case, I would just tough it out.  Go to bed.  Sleep it off.....eventually. My money is on the garlic and onions.  I can't consume those either (damn that zonulin/leaky gut -- google it along with Dr. Fasano).  I just season with salt, pepper.  Boring.  But no gut issues.  I'm hoping like my lactose intolerance (resolved), that I will get garlic and onions back.   Finally, sometimes just eating anything can hurt when you still have intestinal damage.  Hopefully, you'll feel better in two or three hours if it's celiac related.  Longer if it's an intolerance (leaky gut thing....) Hugs!      
    • I read on their website that all Advil is gluten free, I had such bad pinching cramping today(which I don't why since I prepared all my food at home today.) I made a pot roast, salt garlic, onions...No gluten but still pain, That's the only thing I ate today..I don't eat breakfast or anything.   Anyways.   Is it a good idea to take Advil for the cramping? That's how I would describe it like someone is reaching inside me and pinching me and twisting my insides.    This is what I took  
    • I'll give my PCP a call tomorrow and see what they can offer. My only worry is the expense as anymore tests will put me behind in being able to afford to see the GI. I have high deductible insurance but get money put into my HSA. I'm still trying to pay off the CT scan though. Which is why I'm trying to pick and choose which poses the greatest risk for me right now and what can wait. (Though I would prefer not to wait on any of it.)

      I really do hope its only IBS. Though I always worry IBS is more or less a doctors way of saying "I have no clue" at that point. :C

      Again, I'll be sure to give my PCP a call tomorrow then and see what the options are. I can feel a lot better trying the blood work first. however, once that is done, do I still need to be on a gluten diet before the endoscopy? Also, is it ok if I still mildly reduce the gluten. As in, can I avoid a whole wheat pasta dinner, but still be eating the peanut butter crackers? That sort of thing. Again I guess that is more of a doctor related question. I just wasn't sure if in order to raise your chance, you have to mass consume gluten or not. (Its already in just about everything to begin with.)   --Edit--
      I just now reread the part that you still need to be on the gluten foods even for biopsy so I'll be sure to do that too.
