Atkins Advantage Bars

6 posts in this topic

Hi everyone,

I'm just wondering if any of you have ever had, or have them regularly (Atkins Advantage Bars).

On the delphi list, they say they are gluten free, but there is no phone number, and there is also number on their website.

So, anything you know about these would be helpful because I would like to add them to my diet.

I looked at the ingredients, and it seems okay (except the maltodextrin) and on the warning label, it doesn't say anything about wheat products (or gluten).

Thanks!

I don't mean to be a brat, :P but has no one had these? I'm craving chocolate and I'm scared to just go by a gluten free list because I did that a few days ago and got glutened.

I don't mean to be pushy....... :rolleyes: but just a yes or no?

:D Well, I HAVE had them, but it was over a year ago and I wasn't gluten-free then so can't tell you about any reaction.

I looked up the ingredients b/c I was curious...and I know everyone's different - but for me, soy protein isolate, whey protein isolate (dairy), artificial flavors and Splenda are all things that make me feel sick, regardless of whether or not gluten is involved. (Sorry I can't help more). Have you tried Clif Nectar Bars? They satisfy the chocolate craving (the dark chocolate flavor is really good), they're all natural/organic and they even state on the package that they are manufactured in a gluten free environment!

I'm with Meredith on this one...first of all, Atkins chocolate could never satisfy my chocolate cravings, as i think they taste like fake chocolate... but i have not eaten them since gluten-free so i cant help you. I have, however, had clif nectar bars and they are very good, though i prefer to just pack trail mix. And for my chocolate cravings, i have a little bit of real chocolate, it satisfies me better anyway :) The stuff in protein bars tends to make me feel a little off no matter whether gluten is in them or not. (and i dont think its b/c of cross-contamination, i think its b/c low-carb products are packed w/ lots of crap that is hard for me to digest, like sugar free products are)

    •  I have a friend with MS, another with breast cancer and a third with RA.  At the same age my only problem is I cannot eat gluten!  So when I start getting frustrated about food I think about that and how lucky I truly am.  Once you get in the swing of it it gets easier and then you start to feel better which makes it all worth it.    Also when I first went gluten-free I read on this group about Mark's daily Apple and the Paleo community. I turned to that which was extremely motivating.  I've never seen so many people so excited about not eating gluten. It was a very positive energy and motivated me to find other foods to eat. Also, they love bacon! 
    • I know I needed the confirmation.  My hubby went gluten free per the very poor advice from my allergist and his GP.   It worked, but we really do not know if he has celiac disease.  He refuses to do a gluten challenge and I do not blame him.  We do know that gluten makes him sick.  He has been gluten free for 16 years.   So, when my GI suspected celiac disease, I could not believe it.  I had no tummy issues at the time, but was anemic.  Had been my whole life and it was blamed on a genetic anemia and menstruation.  I knew what being gluten free meant and I did not want to have celiac disease.  But,   I got positives  on the DGP and my biopsy.    Nothing like seeing something in writing.  I showed that to my extended family who was in denial as well.   I had a shared household with hubby all those years.  But after my diagnosis and the fact my kid started making things in the kitchen, we all went Gluten Free.  Great kid, but I could not trust her with my health!  If you DD has small siblings, consider all going gluten free.  They can eat gluten outside of the house.  That is what my kid does.  
    • Yes, I used to write a lot, for work and pleasure. Now, not so much. Which probably explains why you guys have to suffer the occasional bout of nonsense!
    • Some cookware you can get rid of the gluten by running in the oven clean cycle then scrubbing. Gluten is a protein not a germ, so disinfectant will not get rid of it but high heat above 500F can destroy the proteins. This way you can save cast iron and some baking pans/sheets. To make double sure after, use foil and parchment paper in baking pans/dishes also makes clean up real easy. Butcher paper makes a nice clean counter top/work area and after your done your can pick it up dump it off into the trash for easy clean up and after a few days or if it gets real messy just toss it. Really makes kitchen cleanup easier and changed my life. OH get new untenil organizers for your drawers to avoid gluten crumbs getting on your silverware/new utensils and vacuum out all drawers real good, Make sure you clean out the cupboards, and fridge real good for crumbs.
    • JMG,  I just read your link and the posts about your non celiac diagnosis and although they are about a painful experience, they are enjoyable to read. You are very talented. Have any of your jobs involved writing?
