I eat Clif bars and they don't bother me, but I' also eat oats. I did just have for the first time a Lara bar--that was really very yummy...can't say for sure if it is really an energy but, but it was super yummy :)

Hi! Jelly Belly has just come out with "Sport Beans" recently. I checked with the company and they are gluten free (here is the response)

Your Question :

Are your Sport Beans gluten free? Thanks-

----------------------------------------------------------

Thank you for visiting our site. We hope the following information answers your question.

Thank you for writing. You will be happy to know that our Sport Beans are gluten free. Thanks again for writing and have a sweet day.

----------------------------------------------------------

I actually haven't tried these yet myself, but hear they are good and portable, though a bit on the sweet side. Here is the site that has more info on them if you are interested: http://jellybelly.com/msib21/PromoSites/Sp...SportBeans.html

Sounds kind of crazy to me, but then again it's nice to have something that isn't always a bar.

I like Ruth's Flax Bars. (Some of the hemp bar flavors have gluten - always check ingredient labels!) They're the closest thing to a real granola bar I've found. (I don't do oats.)

Bumble Bars are gluten- and dairy-free: http://www.bumblebar.com/

All except one flavor (lemon) has nuts, so I've only tried that kind. It's not bad. Heavy on the sesame seeds and quite sweet.

I'm fairly sure most of the flavors of Balance Bars are gluten free.

Costco sells some gluten-free protein bars and protein mix. From just looking on the ingredient lable, the Fudge Graham flavored Zone bars (but not the Chocolate Peanut flavor Zone bars) appear to be gluten free and the Pro-Rated protein whey protein powder is gluten free. The Alpine Vanilla Pro-Rated whey protein powder is pretty tastey.

Most are BUT they also make them on equipment which handles wheat products so they will not call them gluten-free.

I'm a big fan of Prana bars. Taste good, and don't sit like a rock in my stomach, like some bars do!

So are PowerGels not gluten-free? On the powerbar site, it tells you not to eat the bars because they have gluten in them, but it doesn't say anything about the gels.

Its LaraBars for me.. sure - they are just fruits and nuts but if you're looking for the instant calories (ie: energy) and some potein.. they are great. Here's one: Cashew Cookie.. just cashews and dates. 230 cal, protein 5g, 0g chol, fiber 3g.

I like Bumblebars and Larabars - and cashew is my fav. I just bought some new Larabars called Maya. I want to try one, but dinner is only an hour away. Has anyone tired these yet?

I've had the regular chocolate and chocolate mint. They're both fine, but very much like the regular larabars in texture. Having made similar things, I'm a little disappointed they don't improve the texture, but it's fab for grabbing and throwing in my daypack for a hike.

Thanks Tiffany - I was also hoping that the new bars would be a different somehow. Oh well. I like having a Larabar on hand, they're very filling.

This is familiar territory for me! I'll apologize in advance for the looonnnggg reply!!!

I did a search when I got diagnosed back in 2004, and here are the replies I got then from PowerBar & Clif Bar:

FROM POWERBAR:

Thank you for contacting PowerBar on the Internet. We welcome

questions and comments from our consumers.

We appreciate your comments and feedback. The PowerGel is gluten free.

Please call the consumer group at 1-800-58-power with further questions. Thanks for your

support!

Sincerely,

Steve

Consumer Relations

Ref: Y9504593

FROM CLIFBAR:

Thank you for taking the time to contact us and for your interest in our products. While we do not source any ingredients from wheat or dairy in our CLIF and Luna Bars, unfortunately, they are not gluten free. Gluten is found in the rolled oats and barley malt in the Clif Bars and most flavors of Luna Bars. In addition to malt, MOJO contains organic pretzel pieces made from wheat, which is also a source of gluten.

Three flavors of Luna Bar lack the barley malt, and only contain the rolled oats. Many gluten intolerant folks find that small amounts of rolled oats are tolerable. These three flavors of Luna are Cherry Covered Chocolate, Chocolate Peppermint Stick, and Sweet Dreams. We also have a new high protein bar out, Clif Builder’s Bar, which also lacks the barley malt and only contains rolled oats. All three flavors of the Clif Builder’s Bar are free of barley malt.

I hope this information helps, and I’ll certainly log your vote for us to make a gluten free product!

Cheers,

Thomas

For training (I do marathons, shorter road races, and triathlons), I use PowerGels and GU, as well as Gatorade and GU2O. I recently tried the CLIF Shot Bloks; according to the package ingredients, they are gluten-free.

Certainly we Celiacs have some unique challenges in fueling ourselves for fitness, but don't be discouraged...it's definitely do-able!

Good luck!

~Kerri

    • Ditto. However, this is what I can never understand about gluten free food.  (see the bold bits which I've taken from the article) "We wanted to determine if gluten consumption will affect health in people with no apparent medical reasons to avoid gluten. Gluten-free foods often have less dietary fiber and other micronutrients, making them less nutritious and they also tend to cost more,” I wonder why  what so much of what I eat  that's gluten free doesn't have added vitamins - we of all people need fortification in our cereals and bread, surely?       
    • Yeah we learned that the hard way.  I am inclined to think (as I did initially) that it was JUST the Cheerios but as time is passing and she is not bouncing back I am worried that we need to strip away dairy again for a while.
    • Oh I have no issue with being dairy free personally but tell that to a 13 year old.  We both went gluten-free at the same time and it has been mindlessly easy for me.  But I am easy about food and no real food issues.  I am far more adaptable.  She comes to the table with her own unique set of issues that complicate just easily transitioning to dairy free versions of much loved favorites.  To most they are jst that "substitutes" to her they are completely different foods and ones that she has no interest in eating.  They don't satisfy her need for XYZ.  It is like craving an apple and someone handing you a fish.  For her anyway! LOL!
    • I believe the talk around this forum is that cheerios are not gluten free enough for people with celiac at this time. I don't know if anything has changed on that and when their lawyer calls me I'll quickly delete this. haha  
    • Could be we generally say get off of dairy for a few months when going gluten free. The part of the intestines that produce the enzymes, and help break down dairy are associated with the tips of the villi, which are the most damaged if not gone in celiacs. THIS is why most of us end up with a lactose intolerance early on. And most can introduce it later after healing. As to her symptoms with it there was a bunch of research about dairy permeated the gut and causing neurological issues in a autism study I was looking at years ago. And there have been other studies about damaged intestines and how the hormones in milk can easier effect ones body.   Personally I also have a huge grudge against dairy on a personal level as it is not natural to suck on a cows tits and drink the stuff, nor your dogs, nor a rabbits......I mean come on even Human Breast milk you would find odd to drink as an adult right? Back in the past dairy was a great way to get calories and fats when there was famine, etc around I mean it is meant to make a calf grow into a 500+lb cow. But on a genetic and hormonal level it is not really for human consumption and now days the whole corporate BS propaganda push and dairy farms shove that oh its healthy stuff down your throat. There are plenty of dairy free options for everything feel free to message me if you need help finding anything I have been dairy free for over a decade.
