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.

    • Hi Jennifer, This thread might have some information that would help you.   Your doctors are pretty lame IMHO.  Perhaps you can find a celiac group in your area that has local meetings for support.  They might also suggest a different doctor who knows how to treat celiac patients.  
    • All the above posts are full of good advice. What I'd like to add is, if you have coeliac disease and continue to eat gluten, you run the risk of other autoimmune diseases in the future as well as osteoporosis, malnutrition and even cancer, so even if you had no symptoms at the beginning, and may also not have any symptoms if you eat gluten (not all coeliacs do), the damage is still being done to your gut and the rest of your body, so please be aware of this.
    • You could possibly try calling the places in Texas and Chicago to see if they can refer you somewhere that does accept your insurance. Oh good luck to you!
    • Hi Jennifer and welcome CyclingLady has given you some good advice above. You want certainty and that's entirely understandable. Go back to your doctors and explain that you need to know a little more and hopefully they will engage positively with you. If they don't, then do pursue a second opinion.  I just wanted to address your last paragraph quoted above. The problem with celiac, or in my case non celiac gluten sensitivity, is that it presents or doesn't present in so many different ways. It can do hidden damage which may take many years to become apparent. It can impact in ways which are incredibly difficult to recognise or isolate.  I am 'lucky' in that the way that gluten impacts on me is far worse than any mental or social isolation brought upon by the diet, so motivation is easy for me, even without the certainty of a celiac diagnosis, there really is no alternative, I don't think I'd last long on a gluten diet now. But I can well understand how difficult it may be to stay honest on the diet if you don't have any symptoms to deal with. The diet can be isolating, there does become a distance between you and 'normal' people. Who would want to deal with all that if they didn't have to? If you aren't satisfied with your doctors  responses and choose to go back onto gluten I suggest you find another doctor and go back into the diagnostic process and properly exclude celiac, including a scope. Otherwise you could be taking a big risk with yr long term health. You may find that this process supplies you with an answer as if your diagnosis was correct your response to the reintroduction of gluten may surprise you, or not of course! best of luck!     
    • There is currently not any enzymes you take that will get rid of gluten, they are working on a promising one to reduce symptoms but all others out there right now are a bust and will not help you much if it all with gluten exposure, Celiac is a auto immune disease, your reacting to the proteins of gluten and it is attacking them and your own body.  I do suggest a digestive enzyme if you have food issues in general to help break them down. But this will not fix gluten exposure, reduce damage from gluten, or make gluten eating safe by any means. These current ones on the market are FAD ones target at healthy people and helping them with general digesting of gluten proteins but will not help you if you have celiacs to eliminate gluten reaction symptoms.
