Does anyone know if any of the Atkins bars are gluten-free? I'm allergic but want to have the bars. Upon reading the ingredients on some of the bars, they don't appear to contain wheat. It will state that it is made in a facility that handles wheat which wouldn't make a difference for me. It only really affects me if the wheat is actually in there. Anyone knowledgeable on this topic?

They are not certified gluten free and are made in a plant where gluten in present. There are some bars that do not have gluten containing ingredients.

I would not consume if you must avoid gluten to be safe.

There is a mock Atkins bar there.

Quest bars (http://www.questproteinbar.com/) are gluten free.

The gluten-free status of the current Atkins portfolio is detailed below. The status is derived solely on an evaluation of the products’ ingredient statements. However, please note the important caveat that those items designated as “gluten-free” are not certified as such.

Meaning that:

1. no analytical testing has been completed to confirm <20ppm gluten in the finished product and no program is currently in place to validate the gluten-free claim on an ongoing basis, and
2. the manufacturing facilities cannot guarantee that cross-contamination with wheat, barley or rye could not occur, thus obviating such claim. Indeed, many of these “gluten-free” products contain an Advisory Labeling warning consumers that “This product is manufactured in a facility that uses … wheat”.

In other words, the products are “gluten-free” in theory.
