Which Multi Vitamin Is gluten-free?

11 posts in this topic

I am just less than a month gluten-free after positive BW and scope/biopsies. I am looking for a multivitamin that is for sure Gluten free and am having troubles finding one! I know brands are different between US and Canada, so just to let you know I am in Canada. I found one that said Wheat Free but not Gluten free, so I don't feel comfortable with that. Others just don't say anything! The ingredients look ok, but I don't know what half of the stuff is, and I can't find one that says clearly Gluten Free. Jamieson Brand has many single vitamins and supplements that are labeled as Gluten Free but I couldn't find a multi vitamin.

What do you take?

go to London drugs and tell them what you need. The London drugs in b.c. Where I am have always been super helpful, even called manufacturers

Ive been looking for a multivitamin in Canada too. I found this.. http://well.ca/products/now-foods-ecogreen-multi-vitamin_18864.html it has Wheat Grass and Barley Grass but I read Pure wheat grass and barley grass (just the grass, with absolutely no seeds) do not contain gluten. Im pretty new at all of this too so I dont know about all the other stuff in it.

EDIT: I emailed NOW Foods and they confirmed that these are not gluten free.

I take One-A-Day.

I believe the Canadian version actually says gluten-free (it's been awhile since I did my homework on it, though.)

When I called the company they said that while all the ingredients were gluten-free, they couldn't promise that there was no CC of the ingredients before they got to them. Pretty much, they don't do gluten testing.

I took it as a legal CYA statement and I've taken them without problem.

If you have Wal-Greens stores there, some of their brand of multi-vitamins are labeled as gluten-free.

I read so many reviews with people saying One-A-Day makes you nauseous about half hour after you take them.

I used to take Costco's brand "Kirkland", it's actually a pretty complete formula and very cost effecitve - even says gluten free on the bottle.

Right now my naturopath has me on something stronger, a powder form multivitamin called AOR Essential Mix, Blackberry Flavour. This should be available in any vitamin or good health food store. When I went on it I called the company and they confirmed its gluten-free. I'm not gonna lie, it tastes pretty bad. I'm seriously thinking about going back to the Kirkland vitamins.

I'll agree with this, but I don't think it's celiac-related.

I've found that just about any large rough-type (I don't know a better way to describe the outside of it) vitamin I take makes me nauseous right after I take it. Eating something small with it definitely helps.

This has always been the case for me, though, for every type I can remember. Pre-natals like this years ago made me feel the same way.

I switched to gummy vitamins (several brands are labeled gluten-free) because most standard vitamins also made me nauseated afterwards - not glutened, and I don't suspect any gluten cc at all, just nauseated - perhaps something about the coating and my system. It has worked well because I also take omega 3 gummy vitamins which taste bad but if I chew the multi vitamins at the same time as the omega 3 vitamins they are tolerable.

    • http://www.newburnbakehouse.com/gluten-free-artisan-bread I had no idea they now have artisan breads and now I am upset because these look amazing.  Is it possible that people emigrate to other countries because of the bread?    The wraps they have are really, really good. They roll without splitting and cracking.  OMG...they even have crumpets.  I really may have to move there.......... http://www.justglutenfree.co.uk/#Section2 We bought this at Whole Foods in London and the bread is quite good.  It makes delicious toast!  The rolls are very good also.
    • I agree JMG, in fact I've never bothered with the prescription because I hoped by not having it I'd be saving the NHS some money.  I imagine this will put a burden on some people though. I can't say I've found a gluten free bread I really like yet in the UK, though, although there was a loaf at a wedding the other day that was as near to the real thing as I have tasted in years - but it wasn't clear where it came from (which is a bit of a worry, perhaps it was real bread after all!).   Do you have a favourite? I think Genius is probably my favourite, best toasted, but M&S produce a seeded loaf that actually  is so convincing that when my sister made a batch of cheese and pickle sarnies with it no-one noticed! I think the seeds were a distraction. I had some amazing artisan gluten-free focaccia once but no idea where that came from either - probably the real thing too! No wonder I've got 'gastritis'! I have considered buying a bread making machine but not because I'd make bread with it - what I really miss is those iced currant buns with cherries on the top.  
    • You have the best sense of humor! 
    • Hello folks.   I don't really know what to say, really. My anxiety is really up and down and I just feel a little ... Lost at the minute.   Well, here goes. I should be almost 2 months gluten free but I'm not, as a rice drink I was drinking was glutening me. Yeah, that annoyed me and messed me up a but. Well, lesson learned.  I'm coming up to just over two weeks gluten free but since being "gluten light," and now completely free, the weight just keeps coming off and its a bit concerning (although it does seem like its tapering off.) I only eat whole foods now that I prepare myself as I have a lot of other intolerances  - the usual suspects soy/egg/diary/corn - I also cannot handle fat well. I have seen some improvement, my BM are no longer pale and floating although I still have constipation. My headaches seem to have also cleared, which is a plus. Still fighting the fatigue though. Up and down days it seems, and my pharmacy doesn't have any folic acid which I am low in without lactose! They offered me a liquid solution chocked full of parabens, not too keen on it if I'm honest. The things I'm worrying about is the weight loss, and lingering nausea which comes and goes, and often swings between nausea and being ravenously hungry. I know this is a journey, has anyone else had a similar experience to mine? Also my personal products are all safe. Oh I'm a dude by the way. 26 from the U.K   Sorry for the ramble. Happy healing to everybody   R  
    • What you can do is get follow-up testing.  This might help in determining if you are gluten-free diet compliant.   http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/how-often-should-follow-up-testing-occur/
