Last updated:

Clif Bar offers a variety of foods, including protein bars and snacks.

Most of their products contain organic brown rice syrup, essential amino acids, complete protein organic soy flour, organic oat fiber, roasted soybeans, organic sunflower oil, rice flour, ascorbic Acid, calcium carbonate, and more.

Are Clif Bars Gluten-Free

Clif bars are not gluten-free due to the use of non-gluten-free oats in their production.

The main problem is their use of non-certified oats because most of their products do not contain wheat, barley, or rye.

However, Clif builders protein bars (not Clif bar energy bars), Luna bars, Clif’s Whey Protein bars, and Zbars are gluten-free bars because they only use gluten-free certified oats in making these bars.

The best part is that as someone with celiac disease, you can eat it without compromising the flavorful taste with lots of protein boost while maintaining your gluten-free living.

Since recipes are subject to change, ensure the product is marked gluten-free by checking the label every time you get one to have up-to-date information.
