I drink a Whey Protein shake everyday, and the company ensured me it was gluten free. Should I be staying away from it?

As long as you don't have a dairy allergy/intolerance, you should be fine :)

Whey has nothing to do with gluten...it has to do with milk. So as Michelle said, as long as you are fine with dairy then you should be ok

Thanks guys

I was just reading earlier about a gal here on the forum who said she could have a certain margarine because it contained whey, and in my stupidity wasn't thinking it would be a dairy intolerance. Ah Duh!!!!!!!!! I'm just panicing over everything, trying to be absolute gluten-free and see if I start feeling better. Been too long in denial and dabbling and time to smarten up.

Thanks again,

Deb

Sorry, I meant to say she couldn't have a certain margerine. Damn brain fog anyway.

Whey is, I believe, a milk fat...gluten-free, anyway

Whey & Casein are actually milk *proteins* - whey in particular is a great source of protein for vegetarians. It's in just about every protein shake & bar there is! It's simply the protein, no fat, no lactose - just protein. Most people don't have a problem with it. It's also in a lot of frozen dinners - as a cheap protein source. After I found out that I'm allergic to dairy, I learned that it's in 98% of the convenience foods I ate! Ack! :blink:

But if you are fine with dairy, then you'll be fine with whey - even if you are lactose intolerant (lactose is the milk sugar and is currently removed from most protein shakes & bars). Enjoy ;)

Hi Deb

I am lactose intolerant and I also have whey protein powder every day. Just read the labels. Some brands are either lactose free or have very low lactose. I can tolerate both, even though I am very sensititve. Go figure.

When buying protein powder, also keep in mind that some DO have gluten....either in the form of modified food starch or some type of thickener.

Good luck!

Heather : )
