It’s usually recommended that we obtain essential vitamins and minerals through our diets; however, sometimes we need an extra boost of nutrition. Taking a vitamin is a great way to get the nutrients you need when your diet isn’t quite cutting it. 

If you have celiac disease or gluten intolerance, you need to follow a gluten-free diet for optimal health. When following a gluten-free diet, it’s important to know the ingredients that make up everything you put into your body—not just food and beverages. Some dietary supplements like vitamins contain gluten, which could spark your symptoms of gluten allergy or intolerance if ingested.

Luckily, several vitamin brands make high-quality gluten-free options for those living a gluten-free lifestyle. We’ve rounded up nine brands that you can trust to have gluten-free options for all your nutrient needs.

What to Look for in Gluten-Free Vitamin Brands 

Third-Party Testing:

The FDA does not regulate the dietary supplement industry. Because of this, there are no government regulations or standards to ensure the purity, quality, and accuracy of the ingredients in your supplements, vitamins, and minerals. 

When shopping for a dietary supplement, look for companies that seek out third-party testing of their products and manufacturing facilities. Some third-party testing organizations include United States Pharmacopeia (USP)ConsumerLab.com, and NSF International.

Certifications:

Check out any additional certifications a company uses for their products to further back up ingredient accuracy based on your needs. For gluten-free products, three organizations provide gluten-free certification: Gluten-Free Certification Organization (GFCO), BRC Global Standards, and NSF International.

All three of these certifications provide peace of mind when shopping for gluten-free products, but they measure different things. GFCO verifies the quality, integrity, and purity of gluten-free products. BRC Global Standards ensure that gluten-free products meet the regulatory requirements for gluten-free products in the country the product is sold in. NSF International inspects both facilities and products to ensure products have no more than 15 parts per million of gluten. 

Labeling:

Always be sure to check the label of the specific product you’d like to take to verify further it is, in fact, gluten-free.

FAQs

What is the difference between gluten intolerance and celiac disease?

Gluten is a protein found in wheat, barley, and rye. Some people cannot properly digest gluten, caused by a sensitivity to the protein or an autoimmune reaction. 

Gluten intolerance is characterized by bloating, abdominal pain, gas, and diarrhea after eating gluten. A person with gluten intolerance will test negative for both a wheat allergy and celiac disease. There are no laboratory tests for gluten intolerance, so it’s important to keep track of how your symptoms relate to gluten consumption to be properly diagnosed by your doctor. 

Celiac disease is an autoimmune disorder in which the immune system responds abnormally to gluten. When someone with celiac disease ingests gluten, it attacks the villi on your intestines, which are small, finger-like protrusions responsible for absorbing nutrients.

Because the digestive system is physically compromised with celiac disease, you won’t be able to properly absorb nutrients from your diet. It’s important to seek medical attention to diagnose celiac disease because it can lead to nutrient deficiencies, growth stunting, developmental delays, and weight loss.

It’s essential to avoid any food or drink containing gluten to manage symptoms of both gluten intolerance and celiac disease. For celiac disease, you must lead a completely gluten-free diet and lifestyle to stay healthy.

What other vitamins and supplements is gluten commonly found in?

Most medications, vitamins, and supplements are gluten-free in their pure forms. However, certain non-active ingredients used in production might contain gluten. It’s important to look at each ingredient carefully to ensure it does not contain gluten.

For example, supplements may contain gluten in the form of wheat starch. Since wheat has gluten, you would want to avoid this supplement and choose one that uses starch from tapioca or corn. 

Which seals and certifications should I look for on gluten-free supplements?

Three organizations provide third-party certification for gluten-free products: Gluten-Free Certification Organization (GFCO), BRC Global Standards, and NSF International. Look for any one of these seals (or multiple) on gluten-free supplements.

What Experts Say
