We were wondering the same thing, so in addition to reading through the ingredients, we also talked to Beachbody directly.
Here’s the scoop about Shakeology and Gluten-free
The Shakeology formula does not contain any gluten-based ingredients and Beachbody makes every effort to prevent any ingredients with gluten from coming into direct or indirect contact with the products.
Then why doesn’t it say gluten-free on the bag?
Because of Beachbody’s high standards they do not feel it is appropriate to make a gluten-free claim since Shakeology is produced in facilities that also handle gluten-based ingredients (and we think it’s very cool that they are so transparent).
What about Lactose?
Both the Vegan Chocolate Shakeology and the Vegan Tropical Shakeology are lactose free. And both are made with easy-to-digest plant-based proteins.
