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.

    • I bought Spicely Organics Chili powder from Whole Foods in Bellevue, WA.  I got very sick after eating it, so I tested it with three separate gluten tests.  They all came up positive for >10ppm, which is what their "certification" says they test below.   I just wanted to warn everyone away from them.  They clearly have quality control problems and are not safe for celiacs.
    • It's no secret that nearly all traditionally brewed beers contain barley. The flavor and body barley imparts on traditional beers is partly responsible for their rich, full taste. Finding alternatives to barley that are suitable for brewing gluten-free beer has been a challenge. One solution has been to brew beers with traditional barley ingredients, and then use a combination of enzyme action and filtration to render a final product that test below 20ppm gluten required for gluten-free products.

    • First have you been tested for celiac disease? Any doctor can do the blood test but you have to be eating gluten on a daily basis for the test to work, nut much just a half slice of bread a day. You should get this tested, the high constipation, coughing stuff up was very common for me before diagnosis. The coughing stuff up for me was from a allergy that developed I did not know of, the mucus was draining down my throat and choking me at times, and was constantly running a fever and night sweats. I was constipated for 4-10 days average back then and drinking plenty of liquids did not help in the least. Your gut rumbling could be many things, celiac is one, SIBO is another especially with the bad breath. in your case it could be related to constipation causing rotting, fermenting, and bacterial overgrowth of the waste in your system. Now to deal with the immediate symptoms, your constipation is also a sign of magnesium deficiency, I imagine you might have noticed some other symptoms from these. Now normally I would suggest either the Natural Vitality Calm or Doctors Best which is easier on the stomach. In your case I straight up suggest the Natural Vitality Calm it is a Magnesium Citrate and works a bit like a laxative. Start with 1/4 tsp twice a day in a beverage, I like the orange or the cherry in a hot green tea or you can try it in a juice. Up the dose slowly over a periods of a week to the full dose or perhaps a little more til you get a bit looser stool.     You mentioned the mucus in the stool 2 things cause this normally. Undigested fats, and inflammation/irritation causing the body to produce the mucus to help defend itself and purge the irritants. A doctor can probably tell you more but I might suggest a digestive enzyme in the mean time. I like to use a super papaya enzyme before and after a meal, find them on amazon. Jarrow also makes full enzyme complex that can help. Other thoughts if your on dairy, stop, with the constipation, and other issues this is a equation for trouble and you can reintroduce it in a few months when you clear up and see if it bothers you then. The bad breath can be a sign of lactose intolerance/digestive issues with dairy also. If it comes you you have celiac then you would have your explanation here as the villi which produce the enzymes to break down lactose are damaged/destroyed first causing most to develop a temporary lactose intolerance which for some goes away after a few months of healing. B-vitamin folic acid, and niacin will be a huge help also with some things. but will we get into that a bit later feel free to look up Liquid Health Stress & Energy if you thing it might be relevant at this point it is what I use 3 times a day with another blend they have.
    • Some of your symptoms sound like my ulcers.  I take carafate before every meal now and they are much better.  I have 3 ulcers possibly caused by taking iron supplements.  They are worse when I eat spicy food and dairy. I might be wrong but for your sake I hope it's just ulcers.  They were found by endoscopy.
    • The yellow is probably fat you are not absorbing.  The pain could be from your intestines being inflamed.  Go see the gastroenterologist.  The ER did not help me with any of those symptoms.  Good thing it's clear so you know it's not your appendix or any other vital organ.  It takes time but probiotics, bone broth and  vitamin D and b 12 help. My pain was mainly my muscles giving out from the malabsorption.
