Probiotics - Which Brand And Do I Have To Worry About Gluten?
Posted 20 October 2012 - 01:05 PM
I was wondering do I have to worry about Gluten being in Probiotics? I previously read some threads out here about Probiotics having gluten in them. Is this true?
And does anyone know if Vitacost is okay? Can anyone recommend a 10-15 billion organism probiotic that is $15-$20 that is Gluten-free?

They really can make a noticeable difference, can't they? I remember being glad to have something as clearcut as it was for me, otherwise buried in so many wishy-washy inconclusives re pills, treatments, other (non-gluten) foods.
I don't know Vitacost brand, but I think there are many good options.
I've seen it said that occasionally changing brands is recommended, as the gut appreciates the variety, but I can't say whether it's true or even generally thought to be true. I'd like to hear what others w/ more experience would comment on that.
I ended up finding that brands grown w/ dairy affect me, but as it's not really an ingredient, doesn't need to be on the label.
Lately I've been using one labeled 'Vegetarian Formula", which is manufactured some other way. At Whole Foods, I get the green-lidded PB8 - their regular one has a blue lid.
Says 14 billion. I'm not sure what significance there is to some being refrigerated in the store & some not. These aren't tho I keep 'em in the fridge at home.
But my main point is that I think you'll find there are a lot of good choices for gluten-free probiotics.
Celiac 1st diagnosed as a toddler, in the 60s. Docs then, between bloodletting & leech-tending, said "he'll grow out of it" & I was back on gluten & mostly fine for 30yrs.
Gluten-free since 12-03
Dairy-free since 10-04
Soy-free since 5-07
