  1. nurcan: Just in case you would like a few more options I also included other manufacturers. But as always you should try to read the labels, especially on the rice mixes. For example, the Carolina Rice Spicy Yellow Rice is not gluten-free. Since I love yellow rice (though I usually make my own) I was glad to find that Mahatma Yellow Rice Mix IS gluten-free. http://www.carolinarice.com/products/full_allergy.aspx http://www.mahatmarice.com/products/full_allergy.aspx http://www.riceland.com/consumers/faqs/concerns.asp http://www.lundberg.com/products/Special_diets/Glutenfree.aspx Good luck to you!
  2. Thanks for your reply! I just wanted to remind that, yes you can read the ingredients but you can never rule out cross contamination. If a company does not specifically TEST for gluten, it is highly unlikely that they will state without qualification that a product is gluten-free. Companies may not be able to guarantee that the raw materials they purchased to make the drug have not suffered cross-contamination. Even though their ingredient list does not include gluten for Synthroid, they have had some doses that supposedly included a gluten ingredient in the past and doses that did not. So, without knowing their manufacturing process it's hard to say about cross contamination. Myself, at least where food is concerned, I only consume food that is tested guaranteed gluten-free. I myself would not take a chance with a company who will not guarantee it through testing. Thanks!
  3. Please check the Alpha List at GlutenFreeDrugs.com http://www.glutenfreedrugs.com/list.htm This is what they say about Synthriod: Synthroid (all strengths)-can no longer guarantee gluten-free status The new wording was put there sometime between October 2012 and March 2013 Regarding the glutefreedrugs website: The Gluten Free Drugs website is authored and maintained by a clinical pharmacist as a public service, receiving no compensation whatsoever for providing this information.

  4. The manufacturer of Synthroid (Abbott) DOES NOT GUARANTEE THE GLUTEN FREE STATUS OF ITS PRODUCT ANY LONGER. I believe this includes all dosages. Please check glutenfreedrugs.com
