Assuming there are more than a few Celiac Paleos out there:
I have been using coconut butter and making great strides toward better gut health. I am now wondering if anyone knows of a good, gluten-free source of L-Glutamine. Many companies either do not list or can't guarantee no CC for gluten. There must be a product out there, as I am very sensitive to CC.
Any input appreciated.
Iron-Tek Glutamine Powder says on the side of the can:
NO: Yeast, corn, wheat, soy, gluten, milk, salt, sugar, starch, preservatives, artificial color, artificial flavor or artificial sweeteners. Vegetarian.
Jarrow powder is 100% L-Glutamine, states it contains no other substances. Has the no wheat, no gluten, no soybean, no dairy, no egg, no fish/shellfish, no peanuts/tree nuts disclaimer. I'd stay away from capsules, they seem to have the fillers.
You might call Bluebonnet directly and ask them about this product:
I would call BlueBonnet First and then Jarrow... All seem to be gluten free.... but ask about CC.
I purchased BodyTech brand L-Glutamine powder (powder is always cheaper than pills/capsules and less likely to have extra ingredients due to binders, fillers, etc.) and it lists the ingredients as...
L-Glutamine 4,500mg per tspn, Other Ingredients: None, NO yeast, corn wheat sugar, salt, soy, starch, dairy, citrus, fish, animal derivatives, preservatives, artificial colors or flavors added
I had no idea idea glutamine powder could be laced with gluten containing things, and I cannot imagine what those would be. I just stick to the powdered from and have up to 15g a day with no issues. I'll use anything that just says "100% pure pharmaceutical grade free from l-glutamine." I don't use ON glutamine though because their unflavored BCAA powder adds maltodextrin, and I wonder if that means their glutamine might as well. Right now I'm using VPX l-glutamine powder.
