    Thank you. No, I'm not a celiac, I'm just really sensitive to msg. I try to get as much gluten free products as I can. Although I have been having bad reactions to oat meal and shredded wheat lately, so I dont know. Other things with gluten I can eat just fine though.

    sounds like you are gluten intolerant...not the same thing as celiac. Celiac is a gluten allergy. With gluten intolerance you just need to watch the amount you consume..Ill see what else I can find for ya

    Still a worthy reply; he may not be aware of Gemma/Pea based protein.

    I didn't know msg had anything to do with gluten, is that usually the case?

    I think you're laboring under a misconception, Mr. OP: Whey is made from milk, not wheat; it contains glutamine, but not gluten.

    Some gluten-avoiders also suffer from lactose-intolerance...and some whey products have *substantially* more lactose than others - and should probably be avoided by you. Fortunately, it'll be right there on the label.

    Good post...to elaborate on the lactose intolerance with gluten intolerance - when you have gluten intolerance, you kill off your villi in your intestines which plays a major part in digesting lactose. So stay gluten free or to just at a minimum will keep you from having these probs.

    I don't react at all to milk and I drink whole milk about 3 times a day. I just know I've been having problems lately with oat meal and shredded wheat, which should be MSG free. I've had oat meal and shredded wheat for years and never had a problem.

    If you want to avoid MSG, then don't buy any protein containing Hydrolized Protein. MSG is produced when protein is hydrolized. Natural flavorings have some MSG as well. Your best bet is to avoid MSG is to buy unflavored, pure whey isolate. All The Whey sells it on their website, and I hope Nutraplanet picks it up.

    If you are sensitive to gluten, you might try taking a digestive enzyme's and/ or digestive pro-biotics. NOW Foods has this and you might try Gut Health. I imagine that would at least make gluten a bit more tolerable.

    Have you consulted a doctor about this? Confusing gluten, glutamate & MSG strongly implies you need a professional opinion and specific dietary recommendations.

    We're a smart bunch o' folks, but we're not gonna to diagnose you or presrcribe treatment, so - get thee to a doctory!

    I'm pretty sure Iron-Tek is gluten-free and printed on the label. If you haven't been tested for celiac you can't be sure. My sister went years with stomach problems (and years ingesting gluten) until she was diagnosed. Once she got her diet clean she became more sensitive to it.

    I did find some from whole foods, that is working. Unfortunately servings per container are only 15 :/. It nice though ingredients whey protein isolate, xanthan gum, natural vanilla flavor, lecithin. i was looking for unflavored, but this is good. Like I said though only 15 servings. I like that it doesn't have a **** load of ingredients though.

    My goodness, good thing Body Wizard stepped in and put an end to the 'whey has gluten' thoughts.

    I grew up allergic to white wheat flour and milk; still allergic to milk products. It's not lactose, but some undetermined component of the milk. I pound whey and casein all day long.

    Most whey protein contains malted milk powder which in fact contains 5000 ppm gluten, so in fact, a lot of protein powders on the market do contain gluten. Personally, I found out that I have celiac when all efforts to control acne on the neck, chest, and back failed and once I went gluten free my skin cleared up within 10 days or so. Since being gluten free 4 years ago, I have become less tolerant when gluten is accidentally consumed. Doctors are still learning new things about the gluten protein, where it comes from, and how it affects those with allergies to it so I find I always have to be skeptical about how things are labeled or where foods are packaged.
