OK, it's been a while since I posted here - hi guys!

I've been using Biochem Sports whey protein for a very long time and I just started to make a possible connection between the Stevia that they use as a sweetener and my frequent headaches.

I'm looking for a whey protein powder that is confirmed gluten free by the manufacturer and does not use Stevia or artificial sweeteners (aspartame, sucralose, etc.)

Any ideas? I'm having a hard time finding anything that meets my criteria :(

OK - I got this response from Optimum Nutrition about their protein products. Has anyone tried these?

Dear Joe,

Thank you for your interest in Optimum Nutrition products. The
following products are those to avoid; those which absolutely contain
gluten:

100% Whey Gold Standard-Cookies n' Cream (cookie pieces)
100% Casein Gold Standard -Cookies n' cream (cookie pieces)
Serious Mass-all flavors(glutamine peptides)
Aftermax-all flavors (glutamine peptides)
Pro Complex-all flavors (glutamine peptides)
Pro Complex Gainer-all flavors (glutamine peptides)
Nitro-Core 24 - all flavors (glutamine peptides)
Lift Bar - Cookies & Cream (glutamine peptides & cookie pieces)
OPD bar - All flavors (wheat protein isolate)
Steel bar (the one in new packaging/12 count box)- all flavors (wheat
protein isolate)
Wholly Oats Bar -all flavors (wheat protein isolate)
100 % Whey Crisp Bar - all flavors
No Regrets Bar - all flavors
Platinum Hydrowhey -Cookies & Cream (cookie pieces)


*To the best of our knowledge these are the only products that contain
gluten. While we are not adding gluten to our other products, we cannot
say with 100% certainty that our other products are gluten-free. We use
the same equipment to make products with and without gluten. Although
the equipment is cleaned in-between, trace amounts of gluten may remain.

Best of health!

Optimum Nutrition is Good To Go. I bet I've been using their product for 3+ years now.

I literally have three tubs sitting in my office right now.

(2 are empty and I need to get them to the recycling bin)

Hey thanks Wheatfreedude! I appreciate the response. I picked up some of the 100% Whey at Vitamin Shoppe this weekend and tried it out this morning. I might try out the 100% Casein for overnight workout recovery too. The 100% Whey really mixes much smoother than the other stuff I used and the Vanilla Ice Cream flavor is quite tasty!

I use the Insanity workout program (from beachbody) in the AM and need a really substantial recovery drink to fuel my muscles and get myself moving through the rest of the day. I saw great results from that program in my first round and I never even used their nutrition guide - it's too difficult for a Celiac to "adapt" a meal plan like that. Anyway, thanks again and it's great to see other fit/active Celiacs out there :)

Most of the time, we focus on Pre-workout shakes and Post-workout shakes. But, don't forget your before bedtime shake.

You actually build muscle while you are sleeping. Make sure your body has a nice dosing of protein powder while you are sawing some Z's! It works.

Awesome, thanks! Casein protein is the best at night because it's slower absorbing right? A good option is always a cup of greek yogurt before bed for a dose of about 15g of protein.

I think I will probably try some Muscle Gauge Nutrition whey protein isolate . It is listed as gluten free and lactose free by the manufacturer. Looks OK in the advertisements but then they always do.

Has anybody tried this brand ? Any feedback ?

I've been purchasing the 5 pound tubs of MGN Whey Isolate from here: http://www.muscleand...ate-bundle.html

I like the fact that MGN's web site says that all of their products are gluten free. I was previously using Optimum Nutrition's 100% Gold Whey Standard. I think the ON tasted about the same or maybe a little better, and it mixed better. But the MGN is all whey isolate instead of a blend of various grades of whey, it is gluten free, and it is cheaper.

Avoid the peanut butter flavor. It doesn't mix well or taste good (IMHO). The chocolate is very good. The cake batter is very good, too. I just recently got the cinnamon bun flavor which is well reviewed in the google searching that I did, but I haven't tried that one yet.

Thanks for that. I will give it a try.

When I started getting super strict with gluten and dairy avoidance I started using a whey protein supplement from a company called Xocai. I'm not sure where you buy the stuff if you don't know someone who sells it, and I just happened to have a coworker who was always pushing these "healthy cacao" products on everyone. I was always super skeptical and hated the pyramid-like structure of the company. However, I tried the protein because I felt the usual tubs I was getting from sport nutrition stores weren't sitting well. I LOVE the product but unfortunately can't afford to keep purchasing it (I think it was about $160 for 2.5 lb). It tastes amazing, and tastes so much more natural than anything else I've tried, and I swear it helped me feel better. Just my 2 cents.

What about Whey if you are lactose intolerant, like most of us are? I have tried this product called Zrii and it is a shake one meal replacement and I get the runs from that.
It has Whey in it.

Try whey isolates. They are usually lactose free.
