Thank you for contacting us about the presence of gluten in Slim-Fast products. For people with celiac disease, following a gluten-free diet--avoiding all foods that
contain wheat, rye, barley and possibly even oats--is effective in managing the gastrointestinal symptoms.
To better meet the needs of our consumers who need to avoid foods that contain gluten, we have recently introduced a new line of Slim-Fast Meals called Slim-Fast
Easy to Digest Shakes. These lactose- and gluten-free shakes are available in delicious Vanilla, Chocolate and Coffee flavors. The Slim-Fast Easy to Digest shakes
provide great taste and balanced nutrition with 24 essential vitamins and minerals like our Slim-Fast Optima Shakes--without lactose or gluten. Look for these at most
major food and drug stores.
Our ingredient suppliers guarantee that all ingredients used in Slim-Fast Easy to Digest Shakes are gluten free. Although other Slim-Fast ready-to-drink shakes and
some Slim-Fast snack bars do not contain sources of gluten, we do not guarantee any other Slim-Fast products to be gluten free. Therefore, we cannnot say that
the Slim Fast for use as Part of a Low Carb Diet is gluten free.
We hope you enjoy Slim-Fast Easy To Digest Shakes. Please contact us at 1-800-SLIMFAST (754-6327) if you have additional questions or visit us online at
