Kellogg's Special K Protein Shake & Protein Water

6 posts in this topic

Between the title and the topic, I've just about asked my question.

Because of severe gastroparesis most of my nutrition now has to come in the liquid form. I drink Ensure, & fruit juices, and make smoothies with yogurt and fresh fruit for nutrition, but protein is my concern. I saw Kellogg's Special K Protein Shakes and Protein Water today.

Does anyone KNOW whether they are gluten free? The ingredients LOOK ok, but that's never been enough for me. Those of you who have been around for awhile know that I was a VERY sick Celiac prior to diagnosis. I still had villous atrophy on biopsy 2 1/2 years after diagnosis and becoming strictly gluten free, even though at the 2 1/2 years the antibodies were negative. All of that is to say, I can't & won't take chances.

Anybody KNOW?

Sorry I can't be of much help other than to say try calling the company. That is probably the only way to know, especially since it is a relatively new product.

Thanks, GFresh, I'll do that!

Meanwhile, does anyone know of any glutenfree protein enriched drinks?

There's a bunch on amazon. Just type in gluten free and then on the left side click "Grocery" and then hit "Beverages."

I am not a Celiac, but my best friend is so I do a lot of research about it, I contacted Kellogg's about their Special K Protein Shakes and they provided me with a very nice reply, thought you all could benefit from it also.

Ms. Goneau,

Thank you for contacting us to request information about our products that do not contain gluten.

Kellogg is aware that many consumers need special dietary foods, especially those with celiac disease. While we do not currently offer any cereal or waffle products that are formulated to be gluten free, this is an area that we are exploring.

We do offer several products free from gluten-containing ingredients. These include Kellogg's

I presume you've already got an array of protein powders to add to your smoothies (and maybe sometimes juice)...

    • My daughter did not test positive for celiac (6 week gluten challenge after being gluten free for 2 months).  So she is technically NCGS. One of her worst symptoms is leg pain. It was a chronic problem when she was 7, to the point where she could no longer play soccer. At 8 we went gluten free because of GI issues and the leg pain went away. It came back with the gluten challenge and again went away when we went off gluten for good after testing. If she gets glutened, that is one of the tell-tale symptoms. She has had to use crutches because the pain is so bad.  And when glutened, the pain usually lasts about 3 days. 
    • Thanks raven and awol--I think she will feel much better hearing that these pains could be due to her celiac.  I don't know about the Epsom salts-never asked-so I definitely will.  I think further compounding it right now is that the doctor did not want her to take ibuprofen for 7 days before the procedure and not sure if Tylenol is allowed but she can't take it because it messes with the continuous glucose monitor that she wears.  Only 4 more days.   I will try to see if my primary can or will run a full celiac panel for me.  Left him a message asking why he didn't test my immunoglobulin a and whether we should be running the full panel.  I have encouraged my husband to test as well--he did just have a colonoscopy and endoscopy last fall--looking for other things but would they have been able to see celiac if there?  He has bad acid reflux and they were just doing the colonoscopy since he turned 50.  My other daughter-who has Hashimoto's-was genetically tested for celiac through Prometheus labs about 6 years ago due to our family history of autoimmune and she was having bad stomach issues--that came back negative.  So I think (hope) she's good?  
    • Omg I love quiche.  https://www.bettycrocker.com/recipes/gluten-free-quiche-lorraine/1d20d2e5-e2cd-4b2a-bc83-38bee7736463 i have trail mix for breakfast. Its nutty goodness is high in protein and helps me stay full.  
    • Yes. I'm broken.  Will try the adderal this weekend. And report back. ennis, your stuff sounds great. Will look into rounding up ingredients. I've been on a. about 12-13 years ago for a year or two. Worked fabulous for me. Used to love it. Then one day I decided I wanted to quit it, and I think I went cold turkey and it was hard. Brain had become so used to it. Want to do it differently this time and not take it 7 days a week. With my new job starting mid august I'll need to be absolutely in tip top condition so I'm thinking about taking it just during the week and getting some rest on the weekends. Looking forward to having it help me drop a couple pounds too. Just sitting around at home (and doing a lot of sitting at my pt job this summer) is doing nothing for me, with no motivation to do the exercise bike even.
    • I get muscle spasms and cramps too. When gluten issues flare it gets annoying. As other posters said magnesium and b vitamins help. Of course when so damaged you don't absorb it is a challenge. As Raven said I get unbelievable back pain / muscle fatigue. Upper  back between shoulder blades and lower back which refers the pain to my left hip. Had it 20 plus years. While gluten-free it improved dramatically flooded back with full force rage during my challenge. Huge set back I still am working on 10 months later. Does your Dr allow an Epsom salt baths? I find them beyond helpful for aches/pains after a DC introduced me to them.
