I take Radiance Chelated Zinc, 50mg.

I think I got it at a chain drugstore - Long's or Walgreen's.

I use Nature Made. All of their vitamins and supplements say "Gluten Free" right on the bottle. You can buy them at almost any pharmacy. CVS and Rite-Aid sometimes have them on sale (buy one/get one free or buy one get one 1/2 off). You can even earn "Wellness Rewards" coupons by entering the code number on the bottle. I got a $5.00 off coupon with the last code I entered.

I saw one from NOW Foods which is Zinc Picolinate. They state gluten-free as well as dairy free, soy free, etc, etc on the bottle. This form is one of the better ones from what I've read.

Both NOW and Source Naturals have a policy of labeling there stuff with a "free from" list. It's nice to see gluten-free, sugar-free, dairy-free, soy-free, etc. Also, NOW Foods customer support is about the fastest I've ever seen. I've actually gotten answers back in like 20 minutes.
