Can someone tell me FOR SURE that these are gluten free? I read the archives, and saw that the calcium chews are gluten-free, but am unsure of the multi-vitamin. I purchased the tropical fruit splash flavor. As far as the ingredients that are listed, it looks ok.....and I checked their website, but it didn't have any info.

Anybody know for sure???

Thanks,

Brenda

;) my sister told me to try the calcium chews because calcium tablets bother my tummy, she is celiac too and has used them--so i know they are gluten-free, as for the others, i dont know------last night i was in a CVS pharmacy and found that CVS vitamins are gluten free and dairy free--they state it on the bottles, just like the nature's way i have always used and this week, they are buy one get one free--i think its wonderful how many preoducts are now listing the gluten statis on their products-------deb

The multivitamin chews from Viactiv are a brand new product. They just came out within the last month or so. You would probably be better off calling the company to find out the status. Let us know what you find out.

Dear Brenda,

Hey everyone,

Below is Viactiv's response to my inquiry as to whether they are gluten free or not. I had one, and they are pretty yummy. I am pretty sick today, so I'm not sure if they really agree with me or not.....nothing does today!! But they definitely taste good. :-)

HTH,

Brenda

I started taking the Viactiv calcium chews and also the Viactiv Multi-vitamin last week. I don't know why, but they are upsetting my stomach. This is why I stopped taking viatmins before, they make me feel dizzy and like I'm going to throw up. I just can't figure out why. I am going to stop taking the multi-vit and try just the calcium. Then if I still feel that way, I'm going to have to stop them all again. I just thought that I could get a little candy fix at the same time as taking my vitamins. No such luck, the multi-vit leaves a horrible taste in my mouth and I can't stand it. The calcium seems to taste okay though...

Anyone else have this problem. I know the manufacturer says they are gluten-free, but something in them doesn't agree with me. Most vitamins don't. I did okay on the GNC womens mega vitamin, but only if I took half a dose every few days. Maybe I just don't need the extra vitamins and my body is rejecting the excess?? I got glutened recently and I felt I needed the extra boost while I am recovering. It puts me down for a few weeks and I was hoping the vitamins would give me a bit more energy, not make me feel worse...

God bless,

Mariann

gf4life,

I know this is an old thread, so I apologize. But I wanted to tell you that the Viactiv really upsets my stomach. Takes me a couple days to get over it. Sometimes I think it's all the additives they put in supplements. ??

Oh well....off to find a different calcium. :blink:

I too am sorry that I am just now reading this thread and responding. I am taking a sublingual (not sure if that is the right spelling) of B12, B-6 & folic acid. It is a little tiny pill that you put under your tongue and is dissolves quickly. I found it at Lassen's in Bakersfield and the store called the manufacture - Continental Vitamin Company to confirm that it was gluten-free...and it was. I had a doctor's visit today and he said that they are starting to come out with more of these types of meds because of absorbtion issues with other diseases.

    • Weird things people have said
      I've had people say strange things about celiac to me lately... Like someone said, "Oh I'm just a mild celiac so I don't have to worry about cross-contamination." And then someone else said that they're celiac but things have calmed down now so they can have a bit of gluten here and there. And I told my doctor that back in 2014 I thought I had been gluten free but I actually wasn't because I had been repeatedly glutening myself with an old colander. And he just looked at me like I was insane, like a colander?? Sure... I'm not crazy, right? Even if you have no symptoms you have to avoid cross-contamination because you can be doing damage internally right? You can never have 'just a bit'. And a colander is a big source of cross-contamination right?? I know all this but why do these other people not? Why does my doctor not know? So confusing and spreading misinformation... And then they look at me like *I'M* crazy.

      Look up FODMAPS.   That might clarify things for you.  There really are a lot of diet recommendations so make sure you bring a list of questions regarding foods to your doctor's  and dietician's appointments.  
    • Recovery?
      Thank you for sharing those web sites. I will look at them. We have been gluten free since December so it's been a while. Once, he had a gluten free beer, the kind that they take the gluten out, and his legs felt very heavy and had a more difficult time walking. I really don't want to experiment.  Although I am very careful about what we eat, I am concerned that some of our medication could contain gluten. Is there any easier way to tell if medication has gluten. I did find a website which listed drugs and known gluten but every drug was on it or was determined to be gluten free
    • fructose malabsorption and gluten intolerant
      I don't have celiac but doctors or amazed I don't so they told me to fallow the gluten-free diet like I have it... any way I was wondering if one can have corn, corn starch if they have fructose malabsorption. I am so confused on what I can and can't have.. i have an appt next week hopefully with a dietitian... also can you have sugar free stuff since it's not sugar.. I'm reading online and I'm getting a bunch of mixed info on both.

      Hi all.  Still feeling the same way this past week. I'm thinking of dropping dairy starting from today, I don't know if I have a problem with it or not, but I drink 2 coffees a day with milk. I'm just constantly tired all the time, and getting trough the day is pretty hard, I noticed a couple of weeks ago that my sleep was improving but the last couple of days I have been waking up at least 3 times during the night, then when I get up in the morning it feels like I have been hit by a bus, like I haven't slept at all. I keep waking up during the night needing to drink water as I feel dehydrated, I don't know why as I drink 2-3 litres of water everyday

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
