#636587 Is Gatorade Safe For Celiacs?

Posted by Mike7 on 02 September 2010 - 05:31 PM

MFS is a caution flag, but it rarely turns out to actually be gluten. If it is from wheat (or soy), that fact must be clearly stated in the US by federal law since 2006. It is usually corn or tapioca. In theory, it could be rye or barley, but I have never seen a case where it was.


Thanks for the clarification, I didn't know about that particular law. Just wanted to give everyone a heads up, hopefully the MFS is corn or tapioca or else the Coca-Cola Company is in some big trouble.

#636578 Help With Peer Issues At School

Seems like the common answer here is to bring a lunch and I agree. I brought lunches to high school even before I went on a gluten-free diet. This way you control what you eat and you can avoid the low grade nutrition from most HS cafeterias.

Also, about avoiding the gluten-free diet -- think of your body as a BMW. You want to feed it with the best fuels possible, healthy, protein packed, low-fat and fiber rich foods. Think of gluten as diesel fuel, something that will damage your luxury car aka, your body.

#636549 Upset

Hey, we all get upset from time to time about having this condition. It is very hard for people to understand, but the trick is to find ways to make things work. Think of the bright side, you didn't get the unnecessarily calories and fat from those Blizzards your co-workers ate. Even if you are enjoying some gluten-free ice cream, it probably is much better for you health wise than the processed and commercial ice cream from DQ. B)
