Which Multi Vitamin Is gluten-free?
0

11 posts in this topic

I am just less than a month gluten-free after positive BW and scope/biopsies. I am looking for a multivitamin that is for sure Gluten free and am having troubles finding one! I know brands are different between US and Canada, so just to let you know I am in Canada. I found one that said Wheat Free but not Gluten free, so I don't feel comfortable with that. Others just don't say anything! The ingredients look ok, but I don't know what half of the stuff is, and I can't find one that says clearly Gluten Free. Jamieson Brand has many single vitamins and supplements that are labeled as Gluten Free but I couldn't find a multi vitamin.

What do you take?

go to London drugs and tell them what you need. The London drugs in b.c. Where I am have always been super helpful, even called manufacturers

Ive been looking for a multivitamin in Canada too. I found this.. http://well.ca/products/now-foods-ecogreen-multi-vitamin_18864.html it has Wheat Grass and Barley Grass but I read Pure wheat grass and barley grass (just the grass, with absolutely no seeds) do not contain gluten. Im pretty new at all of this too so I dont know about all the other stuff in it.

EDIT: I emailed NOW Foods and they confirmed that these are not gluten free.

I take One-A-Day.

I believe the Canadian version actually says gluten-free (it's been awhile since I did my homework on it, though.)

When I called the company they said that while all the ingredients were gluten-free, they couldn't promise that there was no CC of the ingredients before they got to them. Pretty much, they don't do gluten testing.

I took it as a legal CYA statement and I've taken them without problem.

If you have Wal-Greens stores there, some of their brand of multi-vitamins are labeled as gluten-free.

I read so many reviews with people saying One-A-Day makes you nauseous about half hour after you take them.

I used to take Costco's brand "Kirkland", it's actually a pretty complete formula and very cost effecitve - even says gluten free on the bottle.

Right now my naturopath has me on something stronger, a powder form multivitamin called AOR Essential Mix, Blackberry Flavour. This should be available in any vitamin or good health food store. When I went on it I called the company and they confirmed its gluten-free. I'm not gonna lie, it tastes pretty bad. I'm seriously thinking about going back to the Kirkland vitamins.

I'll agree with this, but I don't think it's celiac-related.

I've found that just about any large rough-type (I don't know a better way to describe the outside of it) vitamin I take makes me nauseous right after I take it. Eating something small with it definitely helps.

This has always been the case for me, though, for every type I can remember. Pre-natals like this years ago made me feel the same way.

I switched to gummy vitamins (several brands are labeled gluten-free) because most standard vitamins also made me nauseated afterwards - not glutened, and I don't suspect any gluten cc at all, just nauseated - perhaps something about the coating and my system. It has worked well because I also take omega 3 gummy vitamins which taste bad but if I chew the multi vitamins at the same time as the omega 3 vitamins they are tolerable.

    • I would like to ask if anyone has eaten puffed rice from Arrowhead Mills.  My daughter, who has celiac, wants to eat it and I am looking for advice.  The only ingredient is rice, but they do not test the product so do not label it gluten free.  I called the company and they say they clean all their equipment between each product, but since they don't test it cannot label it as gluten free.  Would you allow your daughter to eat this product?
    • He might have celiac disease (or just the start of it).  He might have Non-celiac Gluten Intolerance, which is real, but there is not a test for it.  He might have other food intolerances (milk, dyes, etc.).  You have been to an allergist and he did not positive for allergies (I assume wheat was included in the panel.).  Trialing a diet is fine, even a gluten free diet, when you ruled out everything.  But you have that quirky TTG result.  I gave you the link from the MayoClinic (top notch) and their algorithm recommends further evaluation.  An allergist is not a celiac expert nor is primary care doctor.  You should get a referral to a Ped GI.  If she/he suggests a gluten-free diet, then fine.  Because if he improves then, the GI will give you a diagnosis.  By the time you see the GI, he might have ordered another round of celiac blood tests, genetic tests, or he might want to order an endoscopy.  This case is not clear and that is a bummer.   The cure is the diet.  But he will be going to school and a diagnosis will pave the way for accommodations all the way to college.  And anyone here will tell you that once you get off gluten (and that is the root cause), it is awful....horrific... to go back on it for further testing.   This is his life and yours.  You must do what is best for your family.  I wish you well and we are here to support you.  I care.  I am mom.  
    • This just published: Highlights   • Kernel-based gluten contamination in oats skews gluten analysis results. • Grinding inadequately disperses gluten to allow a single accurate analysis. • Lognormal distribution of the test results renders a single test unrepresentative.   Abstract Oats are easily contaminated with gluten-rich kernels of wheat, rye and barley. These contaminants are like gluten ‘pills’, shown here to skew gluten analysis results. Using R-Biopharm R5 ELISA, we quantified gluten in gluten-free oatmeal servings from an in-market survey. For samples with a 5–20 ppm reading on a first test, replicate analyses provided results ranging <5 ppm to >160 ppm. This suggests sample grinding may inadequately disperse gluten to allow a single accurate gluten assessment. To ascertain this, and characterize the distribution of 0.25-g gluten test results for kernel contaminated oats, twelve 50 g samples of pure oats, each spiked with a wheat kernel, showed that 0.25 g test results followed log-normal-like distributions. With this, we estimate probabilities of mis-assessment for a ‘single measure/sample’ relative to the <20 ppm regulatory threshold, and derive an equation relating the probability of mis-assessment to sample average gluten content.   The full article can be accessed at Gluten Free Watchdog if are a subscriber.
    • If I may say something right now, the suggestions, advice, and information provided to you in this forum is just that: suggestions, advice, and information.  What has been provided can be used as tools to help figure out what is going on.  Please don't go away disgruntled or too frustrated.  There have been times myself when advice and suggestions was given to me, and I was not sure what to do about all the information.  I had to think and pray on it before I could act on it because my brain was functioning enough to do something about it right away.  It was on survival mode.  Forgive me if I am wrong, but I believe this is where you are at right now.  You are not sure where to go or what to do, so your body is just doing what it can to function day in, day out.  If this assumption is correct, I GET IT!  It is not fun, neither is it easy. Don't give up.  Things will get better.  Take all of this information and go to your primary doctor to see if you both can put your heads together and figure this out.  The answer may not come right away, but be patient.  it could be everything coming at you at once that making your body go into hypersentive mode.  I don't know, because I am not in your situation.  Until you go to the doctor, do what you know to do and God will take care of the rest.  There is something that has kept me sane through this past year: It will be okay because God is in control.  He knows what is happening to you and your future is going to be.  When you have a good day, enjoy those moments.  When you have a bad day, bring back to memory those good days and see if you can do something for another person.  I have found this year that if I focus on someone else through the bad times especially things don't seem as grim. I will be praying for you.
