OWYN Protein Powders/Drinks
« on: January 23, 2018, 09:07:30 PM »
Has anyone heard of these?  I saw an advertisement for them on Allergic Living's latest newsletter:
https://liveowyn.com

I sent an email requesting some further details on my non-top-8 allergens, and some clarification as to why they say gluten-free but not wheat-free. 

This could be a game changer in this house, where getting enough calories and protein is difficult some days.

So my local grocery store has a nutritionist in the produce section every couple weeks.  Today was doing a gluten free display with samples and this protein drink (the premade one in the bottle) was one of them.  I tried the vanilla and chocolate...chocolate was better, had less of a funny taste.  She gave me a chocolate one to bring home and DS liked it so I will buy a couple of the bottles and see if he really likes it or if it's just a one time thing.

So it does say their is sunflower oil in it.

It does say on the bottle that it is "Manufactured in a facility that also processes milk, soy, wheat, almonds and peanuts. Our facility tests for the presence of these allergens processed from the proceeding production run. We independently test our ingredients and final products for the top eight allergens. Every lot. Every time."

Here's their testing info...https://liveowyn.com/pages/allergen-tested-rtd-protein-shakes
