Hello all, I just joined.

I consider myself to be a fit and very health conscious little celiac lady :)

I've been a fan of NoGii bars to fuel my workouts, but am starting to get sort of sick of them...

Can anyone suggest another brand or type of gluten-free power snack I can try?

Thanks in advance!

I like Organic Food Bar, the protein one. It's not the BEST tasting one ever, but it's pretty good.

I love Larabars. Also most of the Tiger's Milk bars have no gluten ingredients. Last time I looked, the cruch flavor was the only one with gluten.

There's a great company called You Bar ( youbars.com ) in which you can order your own custom bars. This is AWESOME news for anyone with specific nutrition needs--you can choose type of protein, add fiber if you want, pick which fruits or sweeteners or, well, the possiblilities are endless! There's even an option to click on where they tell you if the bar you've chosen will be tasty or not. Very cool. You have to order a whole box, of course, and they're a little pricey (about $3/bar) but well worth it in my book.

Another I really like is the Simply Bar, available on (can't say the name, but it rhymes with cramazon.com ). These are high protein, low cal, easy on the stomach and very durable (they don't melt in your backpack). They are very mild tasting--not thrilling, but not objectionable tasting either. But if I want a more delicious bar, I go for a Larabar or a Kind Bar.

I love Lara Bars, but if you look on the label they don't have very much protein. :( Too bad, otherwise I'd eat them more.

There's a really good protien bar called Quest protien bar. Google it.

They use all natural ingredients. It has 20 grams of protien per bar...they use whey powder to get the protien. They are really chewy it's like caramel. They also have tons of fiber (78% of the fiber you need for the day) and they are gluten free. So try em. They are great!

I agree all the bars mentioned in prior posts are very good.. But I have one that I think as many others is tops...... Its called "comfort bar" comes in three flavors the only drawback is you have to order via the mail unless you are in the western states...

Flavors are white chic cherry chip ( favorite) Italian choc orange, & choc almond.... 8 large bare for 21.20 lots of protein... Just amazing....

Not sure how much protein you want but Nugo Bars and Kind Bars very good.

beware: depending on your sensitivity, these bars probably contain gluten at some level http://www.nugonutrition.com/about/faq/

How does NuGo ensure our products are Gluten-Free?

The current proposed FDA standard for labeling a product gluten-free is testing to ensure it contains less than 20ppm of gluten. At NuGo, all bars that say gluten-free on the label have been batch tested to below 10ppm, a stronger standard than the FDA recommends. We manage allergens strictly during manufacturing, and all shared equipment is heat treated and cleaned before use with our gluten-free products in order for us to maintain the highest standard to ensure the products test below 10ppm.

Kind bars look good although i was a little confused by their answer from their FAQ:

5. Are KIND Healthy Snacks gluten-free?

Our products are tested for gluten and meet FDA’s proposed requirement of 20ppm (0.002%) of gluten. Our manufacturing plant is dedicated gluten free and has a strict allergen control program.

if your plant is dedicated gluten-free, would you even need to test? maybe they're just being very thorough.

a warning for the sensitive, the You bars are made in a facility with gluten: http://www.youbars.com/faqs

I have allergies; can you guarantee that what I order will not contain certain ingredients?

  • You may select the ingredients in your bar, however, your bar may contain traces of soy, wheat, eggs, milk, tree nuts & peanuts because our kitchen also processes items with those ingredients.

for Quest, i talked to an online customer service agent. i asked them if their bars were processed in a gluten-free facility and they said "our bars are gluten-free". when i reiterated my question, they said "we do not use gluten-containing ingredients in our bars". so Quest is ok i guess?

here is the info from the simply bar website: http://www.thesimplybar.com/faq

  • Is The Simply Bar certified gluten-free?

    • Yes. The Simply Bar is certified gluten-free by the Gluten-Free Certification Organization (GFCO) and is manufactured in a gluten-free environment to prevent cross-contamination. We follow strict manufacturing practices and screen all our products using R5-Elisa. At ‹5ppm of gluten, our delicious protein packed bars are both safe for our celiac consumers, as well as an excellent snack option. View our gluten free certification.

    [*]Is The Simply Bar facility Gluten-Free?


    • Yes. The Simply Bar facility is maintained within a gluten-free environment. It should be noted that our facility also manufactures oats. Oats are naturally gluten-free. However, there is some concern whether the oats are grown in a field that at some point grew other gluten containing grains. Rest assured, our oats are tested for gluten before and after each usage.

    • Normal Iga Levels For Kids?
      Just came back from a pediatric GI doctor with my 12 year old. the doctor told me that Chris' IgA level of 45 is too low and normal range for his age is 70. Although the standard Celiac panels came back negative twice, he wants another done with TTG and IgG.
    • Celiac in 10 month old?
      only the first one is a celiac test.  and you need the rest of them run.  What country are you in?
    • Second Panel has come back...advice?
      If you follow the gluten-free diet correctly, without being paranoid about it either......your DGP will drop because you won't be eating the food that makes it rise.  I think having a gluten-free house is a great idea because it allows you to relax in your own home. As for reading labels all the time, I have a few comments on that one.  In the beginning, and depending on just how much processed foods you plan on eating, it is a good idea to get into the habit of reading labels.  You learn how to do that correctly from experience.  However, in 11 years gluten free, I have never once seen any processed food I have bought that changed their ingredients. I'm sure it can happen but I've never seen it. Usually, with higher end brands, they never do that because if the product is a success, they don't mess with it.  I can't speak for generic or store brands because I do not buy them. I do not eat a lot of processed foods either. If you are buying a product specifically geared towards the Celiac population and is certified gluten-free, you do not have to check the label unless you have other food intolerance's. Glutino and the other companies which market a gluten-free line of products will not change their ingredients and put something in there we cannot have. Whole Foods Market Gluten Free Bakery line....same thing.  They are all dedicated facilities that make food for Celiac's and are not a worry. I am from New England and buy B & M baked beans, which are gluten free. They are a New England company and haven't changed their recipe for years and years...in fact, maybe never.  Those beans are an institution around here and they will not change their ingredients that have been popular for a very long time.....they have been around since my great-grandmother's time. I buy the basic ones without the added flavorings like onion, etc. I can't speak for every flavor they produce because I eat only the basic beans. But I no longer check the label....don't have to. The company specifically told me they don't mess with success and would not change ingredients. Supplements are something you need to read labels on every time but food items are a little different and you will become very good at understanding the whole thing the longer you do it. It becomes second nature. I am very happy you are on your way to a much healthier life! 
    • Nation's First Free Food Pantry for People with Food Allergies or Celiac Disease
      Kansas is wheat country, and like the rest of America, Kansans are generally not gluten-free. That means the food in their charity food pantries are not usually gluten-free. View the full article
    • Celiac in 10 month old?
      This is a link that will explain sreun panels for infants under 2 years of age. http://www.thepatientceliac.com/2013/04/18/update-on-celiac-disease-screening-in-infants-and-toddlers/ The author of that is a doctor, has celiac herself, and is a member of celiac.com. Here is a link that tells you about her: http://www.thepatientceliac.com/about-me/   This link will also give you information: http://www.beyondceliac.org/living-with-celiac-disease/info-for-parents/testing/ Quoting from it in part: Celiac Disease Testing in Children Under 3 Blood tests are not always accurate in very young children. If your child is less than 3 years old, you may be advised to see a gastroenterologist instead of relying on blood tests results.
