Herbalife Formula 1 Protein Shake Mix

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

A friend is just starting to sell Herbalife and I like the idea of their products. She did some research for me and came up with "the mix is not certified gluten-free, however, if you look at the ingredients, you will not find "gluten or gluten type ingredients". We have many "gluten free" clients who consume Protein Drink mix every day with no problem or reaction. But if you still do not want to drink that, Vanilla Soy milk is Certified Gluten Free and you can make the shake with that and Allergen Free Formula 1 (soy free)"

This answer makes me a "bit" nervous. I was wondering if anyone has used it and what reactions, if any you have experienced?

Those are actually the ingredients for their older version. These are the most recent on their web site. Do they look gluten free to you guys? (I'm new at this and this powder is a big part of my diet so I'm also curious!)

I followed your link & it said in big letters Contains Wheat

So.... No I wouldn't use it.

editted: On one computer it took me to the link & it showed the contains wheat statement. On the other computer it had a different list of ingredients. Lots of strange sounding stuff. No obvious wheat? :(

I don't see any gluten ingredients, but yuck. Why would you even consider drinking that?

Herbalife is one of the products I tried in the 80s to try to make me feel better before I knew anything about gluten. It did not make me feel better and now I know why :)

Seriously.

Eat food instead.
