I bought a case of these yesterday (milk chocolate flavor). There is "natural flavors" listed in the ingredients, otherwise it looks safe. I've emailed Costco but haven't received a reply. Does anyone here happen to know for sure if these are gluten-free?

Thanks!

A phone call at the number below should give you an answer. Bear in mind that barley malt is often considered a flavoring agent and as such does not need to be disclosed on the label.


Costco is a warehouse store that carries food in bulk. They have started a new labeling policy for their Kirkland line of food products in which they will put "no gluten" on those products that are gluten free (including their roasted chicken). If you have a specific question on the gluten content of any Kirkland item, you can call a Costco service representative at 800-774-2678, Ext. 6.

Thanks for the phone number, ravenwoodglass. I will use that in the future.

I received an email reply today from Costco stating that the product is gluten free.

I decided to check for myself, and just received an e-mail from Costco saying the Milk Chocolate Weight Loss drinks are NOT gluten free.

Well, that's a bit confusing!

For anyone reading this:

The original info on this thread is almost 4 years old. Products change over that length of time. Check the ingredients and, if you still have questions, call or email the company yourself.
