Oat Bran? Need A High Protein Shake.

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Hey guys! Is oat bran gluten free? I'm trying to find a good gluten free/casein free/caffeine free high protein & low carb shake and some of them contain oat bran. I have found a certified gluten/casien free shake, but it contains caffeine...UHHH! So, the other options have oat bran. Any thoughts?

I've got an awesome high protein, low carb shake that is gluten & lactose free, but it's made from whey and my body seems to not agree with it since I went gluten-free. Any thoughts as to why???

Sorry I don't have any info on the shakes/oat bran but wanted to say I'm lactose intolerant too and whey absolutely kills me. Casseine doesn't bother me too much, I can tolerate a wee bit but I basically avoid dairy all together. I'm not sure where whey falls - is is lactose (sugar) or casseine (protein) - bit whatever it is I have to avoid it like the plague.

I hear you! I don't know the chemistry parts of whey and casein, all I know is that if I ingest it, my intestines go haywire ;) In fact, I had no idea I was dairy intolerant until I stopped eating gluten. Oddly enough, I can tolerate Stoneyfield plain organic yogurt (I mix it with organic applesauce...YUMMY). I wish I was born with an owner's manual to my body :D

A whole bunch of whey shake producers make cookies and cream flavors and use shared lines. There are a few hemp protein powders out there that claim to be gluten free are are supposed to have good amino acid profiles but I've never tried them myself so couldn't give you a person review of them. I just chow down on chicken turkey breast for extra protein.

I wouldn't trust oat bran unless it's made from certified gluten-free oats. Oats have terrible CC issues because of wheat growing in the oat fields. Also some celiacs are sensitive to oats in the first place.

Skylark--have you found any oats you can trust?

Last time I ate oats I reacted, but I'm better at the diet now so I could have just made some other mistake. I'm going to give oats one more go and if I react again I'm going to assume I'm one of the oat sensitive folks. If you want to try oats, the ones from Bob's Red Mill are grown in wheat-free fields and Bob's tests them for gluten.

Just make sure you grab the gluten free ones from Bob's....I didn't notice mine were not gluten-free until I got home. <_< They have both kinds.

I've seen gluten-free oats but not gluten-free oat bran.

Chia Seeds are easily digestible and high in protein. They can be used as is or mixed with water and allowed to gel overnight in the fridge to get all the amino acids out of them. I've added them to smoothies for my daughter. I don't have an actual recipe. I would just use my Magic Bullet. Throw in some frozen berries, maybe a half a banana if we have it, a drizzle of honey, a few spoonfuls of sorbet if we have it and some rice milk. To this I would add about a Tablespoon of the chia seeds. Blend and drink.
