Hello!

Whenever I drink Gatorade, I get headaches, back pain, and insanely frequent urination. Does anyone know if Gatorade is safe for celiacs?

By the way, I also read that Gatorade may contain MSG. Is this true?

Thanks!!

The topic is: "Is Gatorade is safe for celiacs?" and the answer is "yes."

Hi,

I drink gatorade all the time. I play soccer 2-3 times a week and hockey 2-3 times a week. I have frequent urination, but I drink tons of water and usually 1/2 or one full gatorade per game so I'm well-hydrated. I don't get headaches or back pain from gatorade.

This website http://wardmulroy.co...OCS/1/content(9).html says all gatorade flavors are: wheat-, oat-, rye-and barley-gluten free, lactose free, caffeine free and MSG free (but it seems to be an old gatorade site & isn't their official site) -- perhaps you are reacting to something other than gluten in the gatorade. Also, how is your blood sugar? Frequent urination can be a sign that your blood sugar is off, but it can also just mean that you're getting lots of fluids!

You really only need gatorade if you're going to sweat a LOT because it's an electrolyte replacer (sugar, salt, potassium, etc.). For most, water is enough followed by chocolate milk after the work-out. The milk protein helps repair and build muscle tissue.

Hope that helps! Try contacting the company if you can't find all the answers you're looking for -- good luck.

I get sick when I drink most flavors of Gatorade. The problem I have is that wood resins are used in Gatorade, and I am allergic to most wood. It is glutenfree, so it might be something else in it that you are having a problem with.

Most flavors of Gatorade do not agree with me. I used to be able to tolerate the Original flavor somewhat but nowadays just avoid anything with artifical colors. Could be that something else in it bothers you.

wood resin in gatorade???? I am trying to find an alternative to gatorade because I'm sensitive to it (I'm allergic to most food chemicals).
I looked up the ingredients for gatorade and I'm guessing plantime was referring to ester gum. there seems to also be a variety of ester gum that is used as a wood varnish.

I am NOT a fan of High Fructose Corn Syrup (the main sweetening agent in their original flavor). Do you want to know why? Go to your favorite search engine and you'll find plenty of answers as to why you should stay away from it.

So, start reading ALL ingredient statments (beverage and food).

You thought that removing gluten from your diet makes you feel better. Start feeling even better by removing HFCS.

Your body will thank you.

Does anyone know whether the powdered Gatorade mix is Gluten Free? I used to get the powder in the big canisters instead of the premixed in bottles because it works out cheaper that way.

Really? Which ones have HFCS? I have several varieties of Gatorade (in the bottles) and none say they have HFCS. They all say they have Sucrose.
