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:

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.
