Gluten Free Protein Shake Meal Replacement

I stumbled across this website and to my surprise they make gluten-free meal replacements and protein powders. The nice thing is you pick the ingredients so for example if your allergic to soy, you can tell them to leave it out. (this my understanding) I'm getting ready to order some to try it out. It would have been nice to have something like this back in college, it was hard to get the calories when I was playing basketball. More would have been healthier than eating a box of Pamela's cookies everyday after practice. :) Anyways hope this helps, I'm sure I'm not the only one who has been looking for something like this. If you can please post feedback if you try this, thanks.

I have always worked out with weights, played basketball among other things. I am 27 now and learned I have celiac about 6 months ago. I have dropped to 165lbs from normally 180-185lb with working out and muscle. Now with my diet restricted I am eager to find a protein powder or shake that I can take after workouts that is glutenfree. Let me know how it goes or if you come across any other and I will do the same.

I too am looking for a good tasting protein shake that is gluten-free.

Any luck with this one or another? Please share!

I use the Biochem Raw foods and whey vanilla powder religiously after my workouts (I'll even mix up the night before for the early am workouts). It tastes great too. We have a health food store here (Portland) that has individual pkts of different brands so you can try them out for a dollar or so before you spend a fortune on the canisters. It was by far the best one I tried.

I am looking for one as well. Preferably higher calorie if anyone knows of one. A website would be preferable :)

I believe Allmax is a brand available in Canada, and they are gluten free (Check individual flavors though to be sure-I am dying to try the peanut butter chocolate whey isolate!)

I also believe that True Protein ships to Canada. I use Beverly International, chocolate and vanilla flavors are gluten free, not Cookies N Creme.

Unfortunately, PVL Whey Gourmet products are NOT gluten free, at least as of when I emailed them about a year ago. They have some awesome sounding flavors.

For a straight protein I prefer Natural Edge Whey Protein Complete Blend. It's all natural, gluten and soy free and it's sweetened with Stevia. Stevia has such a small impact on blood sugars.

They have vanilla, chocolate and orange cream flavors.

For a meal replacement there is vanilla and chocolate meal replacement, as well as a Fat Burner meal replacement.

Great stuff.

    • Knowing that the reaction to gluten in celiacs is an uncalled for immune system reaction, I was thinking of how a cure would be possible. Maybe a medicine that somehow turns off the immune system. The only thing that i've heard do that... HIV.  obviously that's way worse than celiac. Just some food for thought.
    • Well, you can probably get an apple or something.  You might be able to get someone to boil you some eggs.  But be careful of things like nuts that should be naturally gluten free.  They have almost always been soaked in a flavor solution that usually containes caramel coloring, "soy" (wheat) sauce and other aditives.  If I am really hungry and must eat in a Chinese restaurant, I order plain white rice and steamed vegetables.  But even so, you must monitor it carefully.  The rice sometimes has other substances added to give it a better texture, and very often the vegetables have in fact had "just a little bit" of soy sauce added.  To be fair, celiac disease is hardly ever found in East Asians, so understandably people are not tuned it to it.  Also, culturally, with the exception of fruits, it is generally thought that the flavor of foods needs to be enhanced, so it is had to find anything natural even in the "western" gorceries. Even in the western restaurants, be careful.  Fish and meat and often vegetables are usually pre-marinated. I will not even attempt to address the issue of cross-comtamination, since that is a whole higher order of things. I do know what I am talking about; I have celiac and have worked here for nearly 7 years.  
    • I'm glad I found these forums!  I will spend some more time this evening reading through them.  But I wanted to get my question out there just to see if anyone else might have answers quicker than I can sift through the forum for them.      I've been feeling terrible for about a year, and after an elimination diet last month, figured out that if nothing else, gluten/wheat is a problem.  After lots of research, I abandoned the elimination diet and added gluten back in, so that I could get tested for Celiac.   I was off gluten for 3 weeks, from mid-June until early July.  I've had it back in my diet for almost 3 weeks now.    My question is this: Since I was off gluten for 3 weeks, and now back on for almost 3, is that enough time on to yield a positive Celiac blood test, if that indeed is what I have?  All the research I've done says 4-6 weeks for a gluten challenge, but is that really necessary if I was only not eating it for 3 weeks?  I am desperate to get this testing done and over with.  I feel terrible all the time and getting through the day is a struggle.  My doctor ran allergy panels already and everything came back clear except for a mild wheat allergy.  So if nothing else, I'll have to give up wheat for sure at the end of all this.  I get the feeling she doesn't know a ton about Celiac though, so I'm doing a lot of the research on my own. Any advice or information would be so appreciated! 
    • Hi Michael, That's quite a spike in blood pressure!  I haven't tested that myself and don't want to if it means I have to eat gluten.  Blood pressure testing to identify food reactions is something that has come up before.  It sounds like it might be possible but I don't know how much study has been done on it.  Probably not much since it is such a simple, straight forward idea. Welcome to the forum!
    • Hi Megan, Did the doctor test you for celiac disease?  You really shouldn't go gluten-free until all the testing for celiac disease is completed.  It is a little odd for a doctor to tell you to go gluten-free for no reason IMHO.  Did he/she explain the reason for it? Personally, I have learned over the years what I can eat safely and what I can't.  Occasionally I get hit but it is rare.  Simplifying your diet is a good first step.  Avoiding processed foods for a while and dairy also is good.  I suggest any change you make last for a month at least. Then try the food again. If you are eating 100 random ingredients/foods each day it is hard to figure these things out.  If you reduce it to a much smaller number of foods then things become simpler.
