Is Gatorade Gluten-Free?
The Answer is: YES
Gatorade extensive list of consumable products is gluten-free.
According to the Gatorade Company; “None of the ingredients in Gatorade ready-to-drink, Gatorade mix (bulk and sticks), G2 products, Protein Recovery Shakes, and Prime Energy Chews are derived from grains or flours that have been linked to gluten-sensitivity.
Gatorade also states :
If any of the top eight allergens (Milk, Egg, Fish, Peanuts, Tree Nuts, Shellfish, Soy, Wheat) are an ingredient or a component of the ingredient, the allergen will be listed in the Ingredients list or included in a Contains statement immediately after the Ingredients list. The May Contain, or advisory statement, is a voluntary labeling practice which alerts our allergic consumers to a potential health risk. This would be in the event the product is run on a line that also produces another product(s) that has a different allergen profile, or an ingredient that has been formulated into the product carries an advisory statement from the supplier.
We can therefore safely say that Gatorade is gluten-free, but as always check the ingredients list and contact the Gatorade Company if you require more information.
