I bought a few of these last week for the first time...and love them! The macadamia and apricot is really good, and I got them on sale for $1 each at Sprouts, so I was thrilled.

But, here is my question. I am starting to feel like a freak who reacts to the most miniscule amount of gluten. Last night, I had a few heart palpatations, which I only get if I've been glutened. Today, I'm feeling really cruddy, going through what I ate, yada yada yada. I don't want it to be these bars, they are so good, and actually kept me full for a few hours, I love them! But they are the only new thing in my diet.......has anyone else had a problem? Thought I would just ask, thanks :rolleyes:

I called the company about these bars when Starbucks began substituting them for the orange cake. The man there told me that they are made on the same equipment as oats but there's no cross contact with wheat, barley or rye.

Might you be reacting to the oats? I didn't try them as I'm positive I would.

Thanks, now I'm not feeling like such a freak :D I do react to oats, even if they are gluten free. Darn oats....they are really good bars too. Oh well, I'm sure my neighbor will like them!

I practically live on kind, think, and larabars. I have never had a reaction to them.


Self Diagnosed (7/08)-- got fed up with doctor's "answers" to my issues

Eaten gluten free since 10/08

There is always more to learn.

I love the Kind bars and am very sensitive (oats are a no no, even the gluten free ones). I've never had a problem with them as long as they were the gluten free ones. Some of them are not gluten free.

Who knows then...I'm weird. I'll try them again at a later time, they are really good and a great staple to have on hand. Thanks.
