Quaxo added a topic in Gluten-Free Foods, Products, Shopping & MedicationsWheat Grass (not Full Grown) Is Gluten-free?Wheat grass juice is widely declared to be a virtual panacea because of, for one thing, its high chlorophyll content. Assuming it contained gluten, I asked somebody if there was anything just as good that is gluten-free (though I never have believed wheat to be the Staff of Life!). She replied that celiacs report that wheat grass does not cause a reaction because gluten has yet to develop when the wheat grass is cut to be juiced. I have little doubt this is a myth.
Has anybody ever tried it? A celiac would have to be a crazy daredevil to do so, I'd say!
