Recommendations for a gluten free energy drink



in 6 days I’ll be flying to the US and Canada for the first time since my diagnosis in November.

After reading a bit, I’m scared. Also because I’m still in the healing process and an accident will ruin my body for 1-4 days. Eating out is not an option.

Few questions, no need to answer all of them at once:
1. Recommendations for a gluten free energy drink that is available in most places?
2. Are fruit juices and smoothies usually safe?
3. If spomething is labeled gluten free, can I 100% rely on that information?

(where I live gluten always needs to be labeled, so you can know for sure what is in there by just reading ingredients)

  1. In Canada, they are legally obligated to list gluten if it’s an ingredient used. However, they’re under no legal obligation to list if there’s a risk of cross-contamination. Where will you be traveling to in Canada? There are many gluten-free/celiac safe restaurants to eat at. I’m not a risk taker so I always call restaurants ahead of going and ask to speak to the chef. If they’re defensive, I skip it. If they’re too relaxed about their confidence in handling gf food prep, I skip it. There’s a tone you learn to recognise as earnest and truly consciencious and concerned for safety.

  2. I’m not sure if this helps concerning energy drinks:

  3. In the USA, you can’t rely on the gluten free label. There are about 30 products that are mislabeled GF that violate the laws. You have to know your products

  4. I would double check all smoothies. I glutened myself two days in a row bc I couldn’t fathom wheat would be in one… well there was wheat germ in it. Apparently it’s in a lot of protein powders.

  5. I know you said you do not want to eat out however depending upon where exactly you are traveling you may be surprised to see that there are 100% gf restaurants in that area (we have a couple where I live).

  6. Red Bull is Gluten Free.

  7. I have learned to look carefully because some products says gluten free but maybe aren’t. I look for one of the Certified Gluten Free symbols if buying packaged food.

  8. Fayona Zoe, I search products on quite a bit while shopping, and I recommend it.
