Valisure’s online pharmacy plans to launch gluten-tested medications in 2019.
We want to hear from you about how you want to see gluten analysis information. Please take a brief survey.
Valisure is an online pharmacy attached to an analytical laboratory. We’re the first, and only, pharmacy that chemically tests every batch of every medication we sell and deliver it to you with a certificate of analysis.
Manufacturers use excipients, or inactive ingredients which bind pills together and help deliver the medication to the patient. There are numerous types of excipients, and some of them may contain gluten.
- 18% of manufacturers said their medications contain gluten but may only list “starch,” according to a 2019 study by MIT and Boston’s Brigham and Women’s Hospital
8,379 individual products or dosage forms contain the word “starch,” according to medications listed on a National Library of Medicine database by the National Institute of Health.
