Muscle Milk

Hi folks! I just got an email from Cytosport following an enquiry I made, and thought I'd share the answer with you. I love Muscle Milk because it's lactose free, but I wanted to make sure it was gluten-free also. Here was the reply:

Our Muscle Milk RTD


Diagnosed with Endometriosis November 2007. Went wheat free on the recommendation of my Endo nutritionist, but didn't go gluten-free. After much reading it all started to make sense and so started to suspect Celiac in June 2009.

Negative blood test June 2009

Positive stool test from Enterolab July 2009

Endoscopy on Mon July 6th!

GLUTEN FREE MONDAY JULY 6TH!

Fecal Anti-gliadin IgA: 135 Units

Fecal Anti-tissue Transglutaminase IgA: 53 Units

DQ 8 / DQ 7 genes

Endometriosis, Asthma, Excema, Arthritis, Dental problems, Fatigue

I have used Muscle Milk for a couple of years. I primarily use Vanilla Creme powder. I have also used the Muscle Milk RTD's - especially when traveling.

Muscle Milk has worked well for me, though it is a heavy drink. It has a blend of whey (including the harder to digest and less bio-available whey concentrate) and casein proteins.

I am not currently using Muscle Milk. I have returned to Nature's Best IsoPure. The IsoPure is easier on my stomach, though it is more expensive. The IsoPure is all whey isolate, though not micro/cross filtered - it is ion exchange whey isolate. I recently used an IsoPure RTD when traveling. Again, it is more expensive than the Muscle Milk RTD, but IMO tasted a lot better and was easier on my stomach.

I called Nature's Best and they stated that all of the IsoPure products were gluten free.

The IsoPure Mass was what I used to really jump start my weight gain a few years ago.

I know this is an old thread, but I had a reaction to the Muscle Milk chocolate flavor this morning. I've had it in smoothies before and never noticed a reaction (not to say I didn't have one) but this morning I had a whole scoop mixed in 8oz of water. It's the ONLY thing I had in the morning, and within two hours I had my typical symptoms.  Gassy, stomach pain, bloating, etc.

 

The bad did state "gluten free" but as others mentioned ... it's manufactured in a facility that processes wheat.

 

Looks like I'm going to have to find a certified gluten-free protein powder.

Just experienced the same thing - I'm newly diagnosed celiac disease via EGD in July & have been working on eliminating gluten from my diet.  Last weekend I had a green smoothie for breakfast with Chocolate Muscle Milk.  Within about 30 minutes, I was nauseous & bloated & then vomited.  Pretty sure the muscle milk was the culprit....am wondering if perhaps the factory has some cross-contamination between the Malted Chocolate & regular Chocolate?  In any case, I will be trying the IsoPure mentioned above!

 

Thanks for the recommendation!!!

I see this is an old blog, but wanted to respond. I have used Pure Protein for over a year and a half with no reactions on a weight loss program through my doctor. I switched to Muscle Milk and am having reactions to it. I wasn't sure it was it at first, but have tested it out the last couple of days and I'm pretty sure it's what is causing my issues.
