Hi there, I just noticed my iron supplement contains Iron Polymaltose. This is derived from both iron and Maltol. Maltol is obtained from roasted malt. ROASTED MALT ?. Soooo a person goes to the doctors, is diagnosed with Celiac and as part of the treatment plan is prescribed an iron supplement that contains Maltol, an extract from malt, to help raise their iron levels? These doctors are killing us. Anyway please be careful and read all labelling carefully. I only noticed this myself as I kept getting bloating and skin rashes after taking my iron supplement only to find out it contains polymaltose a derivative of Maltol. Also I really had to go digging to find out how polymaltose is derived. I FINALLY stumbled, after much effort, across a site that says it comes from Maltol, which in turn comes from roasted malt. Talk about futher igniting the fire. Anyway here is the link that shows iron polymaltose is obtained from iron and maltol. info. https://www.medscape.com/viewarticle/548571_2 Here is the link showing Maltol is obtained from roasted malt. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maltol

No, this chemical is gluten free per this leading celiac center (University of Chicago).  Scroll down to page 32:

https://www.cureceliacdisease.org/wp-content/uploads/Jump-Start-Your-Gluten-Free-Diet-July-2013.pdf

This book is pretty handy and discusses celiac disease (diagnosing, symptoms, treatment, etc.) also talking to a pharmacist can help when buying over the counter supplements and medications.
