When in doubt, contact the manufacturer. I should think not, however, who knows now days.

All the ones I have seen are gluten-free. Read the ingredients. It's possible they make a chocolate malt flavored milk. That would be a no- no but the malt would be listed in the ingredients.

Go to school and read the ingredients? We have had many brands and haven't seen gluten except in a chocolate malt flavor.

...but malt is not required to be listed, if an ingredient. Any listing or disclosure would be voluntary at this time (unfortunatly).  Best to call the company to verify. ;)

Of course it would be listed in the title and ingredients - Chocolate malt milk - milk, cocoa, cane sugar, malt flavor or just malt

The milk I have now for M says -milk, evaporated cane juice, cocoa, vanilla flavor, DHA algal oil (need to look up what that is), carrageenan, salt, vit a & d

Looked up the algal oil - it's made from algae!

Malt/barley are not listed on the top eight allergins.  Any disclosure of barley/malt is volutarary at this time..  Perhaps we are mis-understanding each other Kareng.

Well, it is and it isn't. If malted barley is present, it must be accounted for somehow in the ingredient list. It could conceivably be listed as natural flavor, but that is very unlikely. Barley malt is an expensive ingredient and manufacturers will proudly declare it, not hide it.

I think we aren't on the same wave- length here.

Ingredients, legally, must be listed. You can't put something in without saying it. In the milk in my fridge ( ingredients posted above), if malt or even broccoli were added, it would be listed. There are no ingredients listed for the mythical " hidden gluten" to hide in. Also, because we are talking about a flavored milk, a company will have a malt flavored or a plain chocolate, milk. Plain chocolate is the majority of chocolate milks as many don't care for the chocolate malt flavor.

Now wouldn't broccoli in milk be tasty? :(

Edited to say- Peter and I seem to have a psychic connection today & post at the same time!

Is chocolate milk gluten free? 

I don't think it is. I buy the brand Almond Breeze and they recently started doing Chocolate almond milk! It's very delicious :) And it is labelled gluten free and lactose free. I don't buy anything unless it's labelled gluten free now because i'm tired of feeling sick and being clueless as to where i went wrong :(

Try chocolate soy milk too. So Good does one that is also gluten free.

The only chocolate cow's milk I have seen with gluten was one labelled with "Malt" flavor.  The barley malt was clearly labelled in the ingredients also.

    • Peter is correct.  You do have a positive so that warrants further investigation.  Here is a link supporting our comments: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/are-raised-dgp-igg-levels-an-early-sign-of-celiac-disease/ http://www.mayomedicallaboratories.com/it-mmfiles/Celiac_Disease_Diagnostic_Testing_Algorithm.pdf Does she have celiac disease?  You will never know for sure without an endoscopy.  Even then, there is a chance the biopsies are negative, but keep in mind that she might just be starting to develop celiac disease or that the damage was not captured (the small intestine is the size of a tennis court if spread out).   Personally, I tested negative on all but the DGP IgA, yet I had moderate to severe intestinal damage.  The celiac blood tests are good, but they do not catch all celiacs,  some celiacs can even test negative to ALL the blood tests. Consider yourself fortunate that your doctor ordered several of the tests and not just the screening TTG IgA (very good, keeps cost down, but does not catch all).    The DGP is the preferred test in small children.  I do not know why it caught me because I am old,  but it did!   Confusing, isn't it?  I wish there was an easier way to diagnose, but  we have to work with what we have available to us.  
    • Thank you for your reply, though it's not necessarily what I wanted to hear, it is what I was thinking. 
    • you're lucky you dont catch colds. im the opposite i catch everything very easily and get alot sicker than whoever i caught it from and take much longer to get better.
    • Even one positive can be diagnostic. This is one:  Gliadin deamidated peptide IgG 33.9. If unsure, a biopsy of the small intestine will provide definite confirmation. There is a control test to validate the other ones, but I don't see it there. What is does is validate the others by checking on the overall antibody levels. But it is to detect possible false negatives. A positive is a positive. I think your daughter has joined our club.
    • My daughter, almost 7 years old, recently had a lot of blood work done, her Dr is out of the office, but another Dr in the practice said everything looked normal. I'm waiting for her Dr to come back and see what she thinks. I'm concerned because there is one abnormal result and I can't find info to tell me if just that one test being abnormal means anything. The reason for the blood work is mainly because of her poor growth, though she does have some other symptoms. IgA 133 mg/dl Reference range 33-200   CRP <2.9  same as reference range   Gliadin Deamidated Peptide IgA .4 Reference range <=14.9   Gliadin deamidated peptide IgG 33.9 Reference range <=14.9   TTG IgA .5 Reference range <=14.9   TTG IgG <.8 Reference range <=14.9
