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/produ...amin_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.
