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 just tried a Bumble Bar for the first time the other day- yummy and good for you!

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

    • Hey!  I also recently started a gluten free diet because of non Celiac's gluten sensitivity, and as a college student who can't really eat in the dining hall or participate in late night pizza runs, I totally understand where you're coming from. First things first: you probably aren't as much of a burden on people as you think you are. They most likely understand that this is a big transition period for you and will take time. If you are really worried about it,  just talk to them, explain your concern and try to come up with a plan. I have found that if I don't make a big deal about being gluten free, neither will anyone else. The first time or two matter of factly explain that you cannot eat gluten for medical reasons, after that, if someone offers you something you can't eat, I have found it to be best to just respond with a simple "no thanks!" As far as making sure you don't starve, nut based granola bars (such as kind bars) are your best friend. I always try to have one or two handy, especially on trips! ( I like to have savory ones, like Thai chili flavored, that way it feel more like eating real food than sweet flavored ones!) That way, if there is really nothing you can eat, you always have something. I also scoured celiac and gluten free blogs my first few weeks and figured out what fast food places have Celiac's and NCGS friendly options (Chick-fil-A is a good one, I usually get their fries and request that they fry them in their designated gluten free frier, and a side salad, Wendy's is also good, you can get any of their baked potatoes, chili, or side salad with no croutons, there are a lot of other places too, but there are my favorites) I have found that a lot of times there are things that we can eat places, but because Celiac's and especially NCGS is something that has just started to get more attention, most people, even those working at restaurants just aren't familiar with it, and most restaurants do not have a designated gluten free menu. Your smart phone and Google are also great, I am all the time in a  restaurant googling "does (restaurant's dish) have  gluten?" Usually we can eat salads, and burgers and such without buns, but it is always a good idea to just tell your waiter or the person taking your order something to the effect of " hey! I am unable to eat gluten for medical reasons, which means I can't have things made with wheat, rye , or barley, or anything that touches things made with it, I was hoping to have (dish), Which isn't made with any of these things, but was wondering if you could use clean utensils and preparing area, that way I don't get sick! Thank you!" Usually people are more than happy to help, they just don't understand your situation. As far as you feeling like less of an outcast, this transition period has been a great time for me to realize the importance of hanging out with people and enjoying their company, even if you can't fully participate. No one really cares if they are all eating pizza and you are eating a sandwich you brought on gluten free bread. People are going to express concern because they care about you and don't want you to be hungry or feel left out. Whenever someone says something like " oh will you be able to eat anything here?" Or "oh I'm sorry I'm eating (delicious gluten thing)" just not making a big deal out of it and saying something like "oh I'm good anywhere!" (Because you are with your granola bar! Also you can almost always eat salad) Or "no, you enjoy what you like!" Will make you and them feel better. For a while you will feel a little left out, and that is okay, but I have found that I am so much happier when I go on that pizza run with my friends and a granola bar, even if at first you have to fake it till you make it! Good luck! I know it isn't easy, but it does get better!💙💙
    • Anyone who has ever tried to get an official diagnosis for celiac disease has likely experienced one very unpleasant reality: Having to eat wheat for a couple of weeks to make sure the antibody tests are accurate. Currently celiac diagnosis requires gluten consumption. This can be hard for people who have already given up gluten. View the full article
    • Perhaps automated word pull as JMG suggested. It is irrelevant, but I must comment :  Oddly was entertaining for me today (on a rough day) to read this drivel that included celiac bashing . The celiac dis didn't even hurt, for it was from someone who could not formulate a coherent rational  thought  and shared that publicly. At first I wondered what substance the author was on, then I read further to discover more of this odd piece. The author is all over the place. The piece is also laced with a poorly excuted, back handed attempt to express judgement , anger, and veiled hate in a masked arrogant self subscribed Christian label.  Sure the author  makes a point of shaming the offenders who dropped off the offensive clothes. If the author were perhaps more coherent and a better writer the piece could be borderline offensive or effectively shameful. Alas it is neither.  I however felt sorry  not for the donation facility , the homeless , or the readers, but felt sorry for the author . The author clearly has a lot of self hate, anger, low self esteem, poorly hidden beneath a false facade of uppityness, narcissism, arrogance, while identifying /self labeling as a Christian.  I very rarely get to read a piece where I can play/exercise my brain as lay person couch psychologist . This piece lends itself to that perfectly. I went to the link and read the comments below the article from the real people who express how best to give to those in need, where, and how appropriately. So all was not lost. The right people commented kindly, respectfully, logically, in a helpful guiding way and without hate or shame. So regardless of how admin got this article here - most of us should skip this for the rest of us  bored enough or seeking an odd entertainment piece that does not relate to celiac , let's hope the author gets the help they need as a disgusting gluten-free sandwich has more to offer to society. 😉 Lol  
    • Hi Gemma, Welcome to the very select, exclusive, super secret club of NCGS (or I if you like), where you get all the fun of living the gluten free diet with the added scepticism of half the medical establishment and most of the general public   If you're interested in learning more, there's some good resources collected here:  Feel free to add or just post there if you like.  It's great that the diet is working for you. The emotional side is difficult no doubt. It does get easier, trust me, for you and those around you also. You get better at planning, at coping, at working around it etc. The availability of safe foods and wider knowledge continues to improve year on year.  I've barely been back to Germany, one of my favourite countries, since going gluten-free but take some comfort in the fact that its always harder in a different country with a language barrier as well, but even so there's hope: https://foursquare.com/top-places/berlin/best-places-glutenfree-food https://www.tripadvisor.co.uk/Restaurants-g187323-zfz10992-Berlin.html You maybe need to accept there's a level of preplanning needed now that wasn't there before and if you do that you can still be spontaneous in other ways? Expect some setbacks, at times its ok to cry. Or, er happen to get something in your eye if you're a strapping bloke who should know better  Keep a good supply of nice safe snacks and treats at close hand. In your car/bag/pocket. Eat well before you go out. Have your freezer well stocked with nice safe food and your fridge too. Get to know what easy safe options are available, Are you in the UK? Join Coeliac.org and they'll send you the brilliant guide which will unlock so many safe, cheap foods, also available as an app. And post here, lots of good people with advice and support. Best of luck, Matt  
    • Hi All,  Recently (Nov 2017) I was diagnosed with NCGI by my consultant at hospital, this diagnosis has been after years of testing, colonoscopies, endoscopies and a 2 stone weight loss - it took the weight loss for me to finally be taken seriously by dr's. (I was tested for celiac around a year ago, all clear). I'm looking for advice to help me cope with this diagnosis, albeit I am thrilled that I potentially do not have anything life threatening (still undergoing tests, hosp visits etc.) but on the whole, I'm feeling hopeful that gluten may be the root cause to all my ailments and symptoms.  From diagnosis, I have cut out gluten completely, and apart from the odd slip up or cross contamination incident I have noticed a drastic improvement in my life quality and my time spent inside my bathroom walls has dramatically reduced. (TMI?)  The problem I am currently having is that I feel completely isolated from everyone in my life, I feel that me having to follow this strict diet is putting a burden on loved ones, especially when it comes to travel & eating out. (Was over in Berlin over the weekend, spent a good 5 hours over the weekend crying at being a burden to my BF restricting where we can eat, and also the fact that the majority of places we tried to dine, bar one or two, did not cater to the diet).  I thought I was coping with the diagnosis well, however the crying spell and fed up feeling with it proved I'm not. Does anyone have any good tips they followed and can recommend when they were newly diagnosed?    Xxx
