Multi-Vitamins: How Do You Know They Are Safe?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I've been taking Women's One-A-Day for over a year now and with my recent diagnosis I figured I should look it up. Seems that they can't guarantee anything to be gluten-free.

Centrum said that while they don't add gluten to anything, they can't guarantee there wasn't cross contamination of raw ingredients before they got them and they don't do end product testing.

Is this just a "cover their rear" message or it is likely the vitamins have gluten?

Does anyone know of any well-known / easily accessible vitamins that are gluten-free?

Vitamins are also a topic that always generates a lot of controversy. Personally I think a lot of this is a CYA statement so the companies are being honest. You might want to check Nature Made or Spring Valley (both are easy to come by) but I don't know anything about their multi-vitamins.

In order to guarantee gluten-free status, they would have to test for the possible presence of unintended gluten. This testing would add to the production cost, so they don't do it. I would use the products.

I just started the diet so I guess it's best to leave them out for right now just in case?

I'm already afraid that I'm accidentally ingesting gluten somehow and just don't know it.

I've really liked the Women's One-A-Day and I'd like to keep taking them if possible.

I take Nature Made multi-vitamins. They say gluten free right on the bottle. You can also call and/or email them to make sure. I did last week and they told me that the multi-vitams are gluten, shellfish, fish and nut/peanut free. They seem like a really allergy friendly company. I am SUPER sensitive to cross contamination and I would know if these were making me sick. I have had no problem with them. I got them at Walgreens.

I've been using Nature Made for ALL my vitamins. I get sick very easily from gluten. They have never made me sick. In my experience you can be confident about using Nature Made vitamins.
