  1. I know that this is an old post but, wanted to include the information that I just received for anyone interested. I just spoke with a representative from Glaxo and they gave the generic answer for medications: that although none of the ingredients (active or inactive) contain gluten, they cannot confirm that they did not come into contact with gluten in the manufacturing process.

  2. I have a question about cross contamination while cooking regular gluten containing pasta. If I cook gluten free pasta in a pot that is right next to a pot cooking regular gluten pasta, is it possible that my gluten free pasta will be glutened by the gluten pasta? That is, does the steam and air coming off of the regular pasta contain gluten and could it travel to make me sick? Thank you!

  3. I share a bathroom with my sister who just bought some shampoo and conditioner that contain wheat (Nexus). I do not plan to use it but am wondering if I can get cross contamination from it somehow. She refuses to switch brands and we have to both use the shower. Should I be worried in the shower? What is some advice on avoiding accidental cross contamination from it? Thank you!

  4. I contacted one of my local grocery stores, Albertson's, to ask about some of their name brand products and they sent a list for all their brands. It specifies gluten-free or not ... It is an Excel worksheet and long so I cannot paste it here but if anyone is interested, I will be happy to email an attachment.

    Thank you!

  5. What is the story with milk protein concentrate? I have found it in many products that are labeled "lactose free" but if it contains milk then how can it be lactose free? I have a lactose intolerance and gluten intolerance. I recently purchased some "chocolate milk" ensure drinks that are "lactose free" (along with gluten free) but am wondering how this can be since milk protein is a product. Anyone know? Thanks!

  6. Ensure and Boost are gluten-free (except the chocolate malt ones) and come in "Plus" versions that are about 350 cals each. They also come in "high protein" versions.

    If you want a protein powder, Genisoy makes choco, vanilla, and strawberry flavors.

    What about the Ensure Chocolate Milk Shake flavor? It doesn't say "chocolate malt" anywhere...but when I was looking at them in the store I didn't even see the chocolate malt one, so I wasn't sure if the chocolate milk shake one was malt or not. Thanks!

  7. On their website:

    Q. Are the GOLEAN shakes gluten free?

    A. Yes, the GOLEAN Chocolate and Vanilla Powdered Shake Mixes are gluten free


    I just spoke with a customer representative and he assured me that the only two Kashi products that are gluten free are the chocolate and vanilla powdered shakes. He said the natural flavors are derived from non-gluten products.

  8. does anyone know if hershey's strawberry syrup is gluten free as well? I'm hesitant about the "artificial and natural flavors" listed and had a small reaction after having some today. I know the chocolate syrup is Gluten-free but are the other flavors Gluten-free as well?


    I just spoke with a Hershey's representative and they said that none of their artificial or natural flavors are derived from a gluten source. So I guess that means it's safe!

  9. I just took this yesterday and I got sooooo sick from it. I don't think it was because of gluten though, it didn't feel like I was glutened. But it made me throw up, alot! I heaved almost continually for three hours, I had to go to the doctor to get a shot to stop throwing up. It was a terrible experience. If I never see this stuff again it will be too soon! I'm not saying you shouldn't take it, it just didn't agree with me. ;)

    I just took Equate's generic brand of Airborne (called AirHealth) and although it looks gluten free, contains sorbitol, which can cause IBS symptoms. After taking it I feel really sick too so I'm assuming it's because of the sorbitol. Does regular Airborne contain sorbitol as well? I definitely won't be doing the generic brand again...
