Any Gluten In Kellogg's All Bran Drinks

6 posts in this topic

For 30 years I ate an heroic sized bowl of bran flakes every morning at breakfast to guarantee that I was getting enough fiber in my diet. Well, you can imagine how well that works now that I have developed Celiac Disease and DH which started to manifest their unpleasant symptoms about about 5 years ago and resulted in positive diagnosis about 4 years later. Since then I have been searching for the "right" high-fiber food. Recently I discovered Kellogg's All Bran drink mixes which actually taste like something you might really want to drink and provide an amazing amount of fiber. However, during this period my Celiac symptoms have reared their ugly head and I have had an almost continuous occurrence of DH blisters.

From the label on the box it appears that the Kellogg's All Bran drinks should be gluten free. I called the Kellogg's customer service number and was told essentially that you can trust what the label says. The message from Kellogg's was so emphatic that I almost feel foolish for pursuing this further. However, after reviewing my eating habits over the past few weeks the Kellogg's All Brand drinks are the only thing I can identify that I have done differently.

Does anybody have experience with the Kellogg's All Bran drinks that would either confirm my suspicion or exonerate them so I could move on and look for some other bad actor?

I would say don't drink it. Even if you called and they said trust the label. My daughter was diagnosed with celiac in February, and if it makes her sick, we toss it out.

You can add more fiber to youir diet through vegetables or try adding flax seed as a topping to food. It is not the greatest tasting item, but after a while you get used to it. My daugher and I add it to yogurt. YOu can buy it ground up and use it in cooking.

Hope this helps.

So my mom just discovered these kelloggs drink mixes in pink lemonade flavor. I am wondering if anyone can help me with the ingredients list to see if they are ok for me to have. I am not experienced at the lable reading yet and have been having a lot of stomache and other problems recently so I would not be able to tell if the mix was bothering me if I just try it.

Ingredients

POLYDEXTROSE, CITRIC ACID, MALIC ACID, NATURAL LEMON FLAVOR WITH OTHER NATURAL FLAVORS, CONTAINS TWO PERCENT OR LESS OF POTASSIUM CITRATE, SOY LECITHIN, SUCRALOSE, TRICALCIUM PHOSPHATE, ETHOXYLATED MONO- AND DIGLYCERIDES, ACESULFAME POTASSIUM, NIACINAMIDE, RED #40, PYRIDOXINE HYDROCHLORIDE (VITAMIN B6), WHEY PROTEIN ISOLATE, VITAMIN B12.

I just got off the phone with Kelloggs and they said that all flavors of the Allbran Fiber Drink Mixes are gluten free!

It's possible you're reacting to some other food, and the timing is just a coincidence.

You may also be reacting to some other ingredient in the drink. Looking at that list I see artificial color, citric acid and lemon, and two artificial sweeteners (SUCRALOSE and ACESULFAME POTASSIUM). Any of these could be causing problems.

Your best bet is to stop drinking this for a few days, but keep the rest of your diet exactly the same. That will help you narrow it down to the true culprit.

Oh, and this - "The message from Kellogg's was so emphatic that I almost feel foolish for pursuing this further." Never feel foolish! It's your health, you do what it takes to get the answers you need. If it comforts you any, think of this. Every person who calls about gluten free pushes them one step closer to actually labeling their products gluten free or not.

    • Hi, I am deeply sorry for posting on here again. As I am scheduled for an Endoscopy on the 9th May, I wanted to make sure that my gluten intake is being kept the same. I was wondering if the ingredients to these products contain gluten even though dextrose is in one of them? http://groceries.iceland.co.uk/iceland-32-breaded-chicken-nuggets-448g/p/52275   Chicken Breast Fillet (60%), Water, Wheat Flour, Breadcrumbs (Wheat Flour, Dextrose, Salt, Yeast), Rapeseed Oil, Salt, Wheat Gluten, Sugar, Yeast Extract, Garlic Powder, Onion Powder, White Pepper, Dried Sage. http://groceries.iceland.co.uk/iceland-10-breaded-chicken-burgers-550g/p/52276 Chicken Breast Fillet (60%), Water, Wheat Flour, Breadcrumbs (Wheat Flour, Dextrose, Salt, Yeast), Rapeseed Oil, Salt, Wheat Gluten, Sugar, Yeast Extract, Garlic Powder, Onion Powder, White Pepper, Dried Sage. Thank you for all your help so far,
    • JMG got it down pretty much, the painful and gluten effects from eating it should clear up in a month, damage symptoms you might notice some differences as early as 2-4months but most do not noticed major improvements til about 6 months to a year. I have been gluten-free for over 3 years all my villi have healed according to the doctor on my last scope. It is very important to not cheat and avoid any kind of CC as it can set you back weeks or months. I would suggest a whole foods only diet for the first month or two, no dairy, simple stews, soups, etc. make for easy to digest and simple meals. Check out the 101 thread for some good information. PS a new combo crockpot, steamer, rice cooker combo and liners for a crock pot will be a life saver for making simple meals and easy clean ups. Quick cook microwave ware will also be handy making sure you have gluten-free cooked meals if you can not get new cookware immediately. I normally suggest cleaning out the entire house, scrubbing down knobs, handles, on the drawers, sink, fridge, cubbards etc.  throw out condiment jars, checking ingredients on everything in the house including your hygiene and makeup. Putting in drawer organizers for new utensils, throwing out scratched glass, teflon, plastic, and steel cookware. Throwing out any Tupperware, and cutting boards, some utensils that can not be cleaned well. Some times you can save cast iron and stainless steel cook ware if you can run it in your ovens cleaning cycle over 600F. Gluten is a protein like blood if you can not clean a item where a CSI team will not find it give it up, it is not a germ that can be killed with disinfectant.  I use freezer paper for clean prep surfaces, also makes clean up a breeze, I tend to use gloves alot also when fixing foods,
    • Hi Allie and welcome First off, I know 3 years was a long wait, but at 17 you've figured out celiac way before many people do. That should make a big impact on minimising its effects and helping you with the diet, so, bizarrely enough, congratulations!   A lot of good advice has been brought together in this thread:  Don't worry that your symptoms are bad now. As you follow the diet your body will begin healing itself and you're still very young so hopefully this will go really smoothly. Think in terms of the next 6 months rather than weeks however, recovery will likely take a little time. Eat as healthily as you can, lots of whole foods and try to avoid the gluten free processed substitutes as your digestive system needs all the help it can get at this moment.  You may want to avoid dairy as well for now and think about reintroducing it later. This site has been really helpful to me and others. I hope you find it just as useful. Best of luck!   ps, your increased reaction to gluten during the challenge phase was perfectly normal. Many find that reintroducing it much worse than the initial affects and take some time to get over the challenge. That's why you'll see lots of posts here urging folks to 'stay on gluten' till their testing is complete!
    • Hi! My daughter is 19 was diagnosed at age 16. It took about 12-18 month s for her to fully heal from the damage and feel "normal" again. Also because of the damage done she had reactions to dairy, so you may want to try no or minimum dairy until youre fully healed. Just a suggestion. Hope you start feeling well soon!
    • Hi yall! New to this blog, but really glad it exists because I have lots of questions. First off, I'm Allie! I'm 17 and newly diagnosed Celiac after about 3 years of searching for answers. I initially went gluten-free on the recommendation of a friend, I felt better in about a month and then my pediatric gastroenterologist had me do the gluten challenge, and my symptoms were the worst they have ever been, and ones I barely noticed before became very present. I did the biopsy and was diagnosed, it's been about 2 weeks and my symptoms are still pretty bad, although my diet has no known sources of gluten or cross contamination. Wondering if anyone has any input on healing post gluten challenge, any tips or how long it took for you would be quite helpful! Thanks
