New To Gfd..wondering About Zone Perfect Bars?

12 posts in this topic

Hi! I'm going gluten-free because of suspected Dermatitis Herpetiformis. Can someone tell me if the Zone Perfect Bars are gluten-free? I've searched the boards and Googled it and just can't find anything definite. Seems that some of them are, but no one says which ones. I'm specifically interested in the Chocolate Peanut Butter bars and the Fudge Graham bars, since I just bought a bunch at Costco. Thanks for any help you can give me! Much appreciated!

Some are, but some aren't. You have to check the labels. My guess is that the graham will not be gluten-free :huh:

Thank you. Would calling the company yield a definitive answer? Or do I just have to look at the Zone Bar label with my list of "gluten and gluten free ingredients" from this site?

I just realized, too, that my question belongs more properly in a different catgory, so I'm reposting there. Sorry to put it in the wrong place.

Thanks! :)

ALWAYS read the label, regardless of any list or affirmation you have from anyone. Ingredients can and do change.

Googling the Chocolate Peanut Butter one leads to this ingredient list:

Soy Protein Nuggets (Soy Protein Isolate, Tapioca Starch, Salt), Peanut Butter Fudge (Corn Syrup, Peanut Butter, Invert Sugar, Sugar, Palm Kernel Oil, Milk Protein, Soy Lecithin, Xanthan Gum, Carob Seed Gum, Salt, Natural Caramel Color, Beta-Carotene, Vanilla Extract, Peanut Oil With Other Natural Flavors), Chocolate Flavored Coating (Sugar, Fractionated Palm Kernel Oil, Cocoa Powder, Whey Powder, Nonfat Milk Powder, Soy Lecithin, Natural Vanilla Flavor), Corn Syrup, Acacia Gum, Fructose Syrup, Peanut Butter, Peanut Flour, Peanuts.

Less Than 2% of the Following: Glycerine, Soy Protein Isolate, Natural Flavor, Salt.

Vitamins And Minerals: Calcium Phosphate, Ascorbic Acid, d-Alpha-Tocopheryl Acetate, Magnesium Oxide, Niacinamide, Zinc Oxide, Calcium Pantothenate, Ferrous Fumarate, Pyridoxine Hydrochloride, Vitamin A Palmitate, Riboflavin, Thiamine Mononitrate, Folic Acid, Chromium Chloride, Biotin, Sodium Selenite, Sodium Molybdate, Cyanocobalamin.

CONTAINS SOY, PEANUT AND MILK INGREDIENTS; MANUFACTURED IN A FACILITY THAT PROCESSES EGGS, TREE NUTS AND WHEAT.

Ingredients are gluten free, but some people choose to avoid shared buildings.

Googling the Fudge Graham one leads to this ingredient list:

Soy Protein Nuggets (Isolated Soy Protein, Tapioca Starch, Salt), Chocolate Flavored Coating (Sugar, Fractionated Palm Kernel And Palm Oils, Cocoa [Processed With Alkali], Nonfat Dry Milk, Sorbitan Monostearate, Soy Lecithin, Natural VanillaFlavor), Corn Syrup, Milk Chocolate Drops (Sugar, Whole Milk Powder, Chocolate Liquor, Cocoa Butter, Milk Fat, Soy Lecithin, Natural Vanilla Flavor), Marshmallow Pieces (Sugar, Corn Starch, Fructose, Soybean Oil, Corn Syrup Solids, Natural Flavors, Salt, Soy Lecithin), Fructooligosaccharides, Milk Protein Isolate, High Oleic Sunflower Or High Oleic Safflower Oil, Glycerine. Less Than 2% Of The Following: Fructose, Natural Flavors, Water, Xanthan Gum, Soy Lecithin.

Vitamins And Minerals: Calcium Phosphate, Ascorbic Acid, d-Alpha-Tocopheryl Acetate, Magnesium Oxide, Niacinamide, Zinc Oxide, Calcium Pantothenate, Ferrous Fumarate, Pyridoxine Hydrochloride, Vitamin A Palmitate, Riboflavin, Thiamine Mononitrate, Folic Acid, Chromium Chloride, Biotin, Sodium Selenite, Sodium Molybdate, Cyanocobalamin.

CONTAINS SOY AND MILK INGREDIENTS; MANUFACTURED IN A FACILITY THAT PROCESSES EGGS, PEANUTS, TREE NUTS AND WHEAT.

Ditto.

Hi! I'm going gluten-free because of suspected Dermatitis Herpetiformis. Can someone tell me if the Zone Perfect Bars are gluten-free? I accidently posted this question in another forum on this board, and the answer I got said they seemed fine, but I wanted to check here, too. I've searched the boards and Googled it and just can't find anything definite. Seems that some of them are, but no one says which ones. I'm specifically interested in the Chocolate Peanut Butter bars and the Fudge Graham bars, since I just bought a bunch at Costco.

My other question is about pure gelatin capsules used in medications. I use a Thyroid RX that is compounded. I called and asked about it being gluten-free today, and the pharmacist said it contained only Thyroid hormone, lactose (as filler) and gelatin capsules. The capsules are just gelatin and water, so I assume they are gluten-free and safe?

Thanks for any help you can give me! Much appreciated!

My apologies. I did not intend to post duplicate posts. I'm new to the these boards and still trying to figure them out. I posted my second post when I did not see my first one go through. I waited overnight, and when it didn't show, I posted again. Again, my apologies. Did not mean to do that. Is there a technical reason that I'm not seeing my posts after I hit Post? If you can help, I appreciate it.

This info is from about a year ago when I called the company:

The customer service rep told me that the bars are made on shared equipment and some bars have gluten ingredients. When I asked further if she had information on how they change from one product to another, she found information stating that all the equipment is thoroughly cleaned and sanitized between products, and that they were highly aware of the need to do this with respect to allergens. Very helpful and knowledgable on the phone. You will need to make your own decision with respect to this, but I had good confidence in what I was hearing. The rep had all of this information at her fingertips.

My son eats Zone bars almost daily (school lunches/snacks on the go).

Now with all these disclaimers out of the way, here is the list of ZonePerfect Bars that contain no Gluten Ingredients:

Chocolate Almond Raisin

Chocolate Caramel Crunch (also snack size)

Chocolate Coconut Crunch

Chocolate Peanut Butter (also snack size)

Chocolate Raspberry

Fudge Graham (also snack size) - despite the name

Peanut Toffee

Double Dark Chocolate

Banana Nut

Blueberry

Orange Cranberry

I am seeing a couple of new flavors in stores, but have not checked on them yet.

Bev,

THANK YOU! :) That's exactly the information I needed, and I appreciate you sharing your footwork with me. I'm trying to get gluten-free as quickly as possible in order to STOP ITCHING with this DH. But I don't have all the time I need to thoroughly research everything I eat. I wish that there was a book that had a comprehensive listing of gluten-free products in it, something researched and revised every year. Our family follows the Feingold Diet, which eliminates artificial flavors, colors, and preservatives, and as members, we have a comprehensive Foodlist of reserached food/body care products that are clean for Feingold. To check a product, you just check the list. Wish there was a gluten-free list or blog or database like that. It's so overhwelming to Google or call the company about every single questionable item.

Thanks, though for the help with the Zone bars. Those are staple Breakfasts for me, so that's one meal taken care of. :)

    • Yes like a protein powder. I visit a local store there is so many brands and on every brand have write gluten free.that's way I confused which one is best any suggestions ! 
    • Do you mean something like a protein powder you could mix up?  A lot of them in the US seem to be gluten free.  Maybe just go to your local store and read all the labels?
    • Yeah I ended up allergic to corn, olives, sesame, whey, and peanuts and intolerant to dairy, soy, yeast, enzyme issues with breaking down meats, and egg yolks, along with extreme bloat with any kind of carbs/sugars in moderate amounts. And very adverse reactions to certain artificial sweeteners. So your not alone in all the other issues cropping up, it happens as our bodies adjust.  I eat a bunch of stir frys with veggies, egg whites, plenty of  avocados, and toasted and raw forms of almonds, coconut, cashews, walnuts, hemp seeds, pumpkin seeds, flax seeds, sancha inchi seeds, chia seeds, and sunflower seeds in all forms including making them into butters, spreads, and incorporating them into sauces.   Most meals are forms of soups, omelettes, and stir frys. I do the seeds and nuts on rotation same with my veggies and snack on fruits in small amounts along with some homemade baked goods I make for markets. I do suggest a rotation of foods, my dietician said I need to rotate my foods to prevent more issues, making sure I am off one one for at least 7-14 days at a time completely. I find changing up the spices and rotating my cuisine base works well. I also make puddings, and protein shakes along with nut/seed milks, and different bases and extract flavorings to get my random cravings Taken care of. Guess take what you can from this and and see how it can help you,    As to the tinging, I ended up with both B vitamin and magnesium deficiency issues, the magnesium one caused a fire like tingling in my arms, legs and back, along with muscle pain. Ended up on a doctors best powder form of it so I can dose it out right, and found epsom salt bathes helped.

    • Hi, I've gained so much knowledge on this forum over the past few months, which I am so thankful for. I can see how much hell people are going through with this disease and it's so lovely to see how much support and advice people give to others on here. I'd like a little bit of reassurance and advice myself from anyone that can help. I've been gluten free for six months. Two weeks after going gluten free I realised I also had a problem with corn so cut out processed food. Over the following weeks and months I continually had problems with food; fruit, dairy, a lot of vegetables, nuts, soya....it's basically dwindled down to just eating potatoes (not white potatoes), cucumber, lettuce, small amounts of red onion, spring onion, sprouts and beetroot. There may be more things I could be okay with but to be honest I'm too scared to try.  Is this all normal? Am I an extreme case? I've been taking some digestive enzymes and probiotics for about six weeks, my acid reflux has dramatically decreased but I always have a lot of loud noises going on in my guts, I'm guessing this is the probiotics working.  I've lost nearly 3st in weight since this started - which I'm not complaining about as I was overweight due to thyroid problems. I've had loads of blood tests done recently, all organs are working 'great' according to my doctor, the only thing they've picked up on is ketones, I seem to be having a glucose problem, which might explain my exhaustion and weight loss. I also have permanent numbness and sometimes tingling in one of my legs and sometimes hands and one shoulder, I thought it could have vitamin B12 deficiency but that's okay according to blood tests. I would be greatful for any replies. Thanks for reading.
