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 tried these when I was traveling recently and needed snacks to have handy. I do not know how "powerful" they are, but they are pretty darn tasty :)

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 love Lara bars and Kind bars, both are all natural and have lots of protein, obviously varies with the type you choose. The LaraBar nut rolls are pretty good too, well worth a try! 😄

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....

beware: depending on your sensitivity, these bars probably contain gluten at some level http://www.nugonutri....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?
