ok this is a bit of a moan and also looking for help and your foughts on this,
now i fought that all products, supplements, food etc have to state whether they have wheat,milk,gluten,yeast etc etc,
now some products do and some dont, now with me im preety much allergic to everything so i dont want to chance it,
now for example i have omega3, free from the following, no starch, no milk, no lactose, no glueten, no wheat,no yeast, which is great its free from everything so i know it cant effect me
now i also have some vitamin c tablets thats labeled free from, lactose, yeast and glueten.. now my question is does this mean that this vitamin c has wheat, milk starch, in bascially everything that the above states?? if you get what im saying
becusae it doesnt state all of them like the omega??
and if it did have wheat milk starch in etc? wouldnt it say may contain wheat milk etc etc??
looking at the ingredients it doesnt look like it has milk or wheat but it doesnt say it does or doesnt have it in? whats the law with the labelling?
and do you think they are ok? i have this problem with 3/4 different types of pills im taking? that all say free from lactose yeast and glueten, but it says nothing about wheat, milk, gluten etc?
please someone help, some confussed lol 🙂September 23, 2012 at 5:48 am #90350

You’ll have to read through the ingredients.
To my knowledge, supplements don’t have to state that they are free from certain things.
Although, if foods are produced in factories that process nuts, etc, they ave to state that.September 23, 2012 at 6:28 am #90352
yeah i have bee checking the igrendiets but i just dont know
for example, garlic tablets contai.. soya bean oil, gelati, glycerine,silicon,dioxide,odourless garlic poweder
now im guessing it contains soya, but what about wheat or milk etc?
it says its free from lactose, yeast and gluten
why does it say its free from some things and not others?
so cofussed!September 23, 2012 at 10:35 am #90356

I would only worry about he sugar and fake sugars found in the supplements; maltodextrin, sorbitol, etc. I looked at some of the flu/cold stuff at a major store here in the US and sorbitol was the top ingredient. Some of these places just give you crap/worthless supplements.
I wouldn’t worry about the stuff they are free from; I even take some standard process supplements that contain low amounts of lactose and it hasn’t set back my progress.
You’ve become too paranoid about the vitamins and need to suck it up and take them.
