Having to eat Gluten Free can be a huge issue that you want to make sure there is no gluten in what you consume whether it be a beverage or food. When it comes to Beachbody products you want to know exactly the same information. Whether you have Celiac or just any kind of intolerance for Gluten like IBS it is information you want to know. That is why we wrote this article and went out and gathered information from hundreds of users of Beachbody's Performance line.
Is Beachbody Performance Line Gluten Free?
Yes Beachbody's Performance Line is gluten free, but it is not certified gluten free. So that basically means they don't have a separate gluten free plant to produce their product line. Beachbody products are made at the same plant as wheat based products. This will change in the future I am sure as Beachbody has gotten bigger and bigger over the years.
Having said that you should consult your Doctor before proceeding with their line and read below where we ask others that have Celiac disease among other complications with gluten. Or maybe you are on a Gluten free diet and looking to Beachbody to make sure you can stick with that diet we go over that as well.
Real BOD Users Opinions On Beachbody Product Line
We went out and gathered information from many different BOD users that have something like Celiac, other allergies to wheat, or are simply on a gluten free diet to get their perspective on Beachbody's Performance Line when it comes to the Gluten Free aspect. As you know it is not certified gluten which the way Beachbody has explained it is because they don't have their own gluten free plant to produce the products. This may or may not change in the future.
We curated this information from Beachbody Groups so nothing has been changed except any spelling or grammar where needed.
1. Melanie “I do fine” – I have a glutton intolerance and do fine with it.
2. Christina “Gluten Allergy and IBS no issues” – Gluten allergy, autoimmune thyroid issues, IBS!!! Feel free to message me for any info, I’ve done both with no issues.
3. Beth “IBS and Gluten Sensitivity no issues” – IBS/ gluten sensitivity and have to eat dairy free..and I don't have issues.
4. Marissa “Have Celiac and had issues” – I have celiacs and thought I had no issues At first. But eventually I would get stomach bloat (especially with vegan one) gluten rash and fog. It was the only thing I ate that wasn’t gluten free. Once I stopped most of my symptoms went away and I now use a different protein powder.
5. Sheina “Some are fine and some aren't” – Some people are fine with it and some people react. It has inflammatory ingredients and isn’t organic, gluten free, or grass fed or antibiotic free.
6. HermitGirl “I wouldn't touch it if you have celiac” – I can tell you that Shakeology made me violently ill. I only used half the packed of powder. I wouldn't touch it with a ten-foot pole after how sick it made me. I had never had such an intense reaction before, but had the same thing the last time I was glutened a few weeks ago.
7. LookingForAnswers “Don't personally use it because of grain grasses” – I personally don't eat any of the gluten grain grasses, even though they are supposed to be gluten free they make equally as sick. Plus, they are cheap filler ingredients – humans aren't supposed to eat grass
8. CpeaBody “Son has celiac” – I am a Beachbody coach and have been drinking Shakeology for almost 2 years. It is an amazing product but those with Celiac need to make an informed decision on if they want to try it. My son is 5 and has Celiac and I do not give him. I trust Beachbody and their statements but my son reacts to wheat grass and the vegan formulas have oat protein in them and unless those oats are certified gluten-free they can be troublesome for Celiac's. My son can not eat any oats at all so the vegan option is out ans our regular formula has whey and he can not consume dairy either. Just the oats alone without being certified is enough for me to opt out of giving him Shako. Still on the hunt for something comparable that he will drink. He loved his Shakeology before being diagnosed!
So as you can see it is hit or miss on whether it will affect you. There are different levels of Gluten Allergies that can include the gluten free wheat that Beachbody uses in most of their Beachbody Performance line. Maybe get a sample from a coach that you can try 1/4 of the sample to see how your body reacts. As always ask your doctor first. Seems over 75% of people using Shakeology and other Beachbody Performance products had no reaction. The other 25% were a range of little to a lot, but still not worth it too use of course.
