Nature's Bounty Protein & Vitamin Shake Mix

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello to all -this is my first entry!

I am checking with everyone to see if they have been having a reaction to the Nature's Bounty Protein & Vitamin (chocolate) shake mix after drinking it.  When you read the label on the container, it states that it has Oat Fiber in it -but then reading online through their website it shows the ingredients contain "wheat products".  I don't have severe Celiacs but now that I have been gluten-free for 7 years, I notice when things aren't right.  I started (my wife starting giving to me) the Nature's Bounty mix around 4 months ago -but have only recently (within the last month) been experiencing stomach pains after drinking (pretty much immediately -before I am even done with it).

Does anyone else have this issue?  Does anyone know specifically if it is NOT gluten-free?  It does not state so on the container or on their website.

Thank you for any input you can provide.

Pete

Sort of funny.  Says no wheat at the bottom but also says this "

Other Ingredients: Proprietary Protein Blend (Soy Protein Isolate, Whey Protein Concentrate), Cocoa (processed with alkali), Inulin, Oat Fiber, Fructose, Natural Flavors, Maltodextrin, Soy Lecithin, Tricalcium Phosphate, Xanthan Gum.

Contains milk and soy ingredients. Contains wheat ingredients.

 

I bet they do not use gluten free oats, so its a bit of a gamble.  Not one a Celiac should take as there is no such thing as "not severe Celiac".  Even if you don't feel the damage, consuming gluten will start damaging you.  Maybe its just catching up with you.
