Thanks so much for the info! :)

It works if you do it. It doesn't if you don't. It's that simple.

Dear Shwna,

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

www.slim-fast.com/easytodigest.

For more information about gluten-free diets, visit the Celiac Sprue Association at www.csaceliacs.org (877-272-4272) and the Gluten Intolerance Group at

www.gluten.net (253-833-6655).

Sincerely,

Ali Auerbach, RD
Registered Dietitian
