i posted this in the international forum ( for uk) but nobody,s answered,

 

so can someone please let me know if barley malt extract is ok or not - i thought it wasnt. 

 

ive joined celiac uk( its not as good as this site) for the food directory that you get - thought it would give me a few more ideas of what to eat as it gives you a list of gluten free foods of all the major supermarkets.

so off i pop to tescos armed with my new book and it says that tescos honey nut cornflakes are fine so i buy some ( it saves me spending stupid amounts on organic gluten free cornflakes)

i have some with hazelnut milk and an hour later im on the toilet- no D or anything just an urgent need to go, so i try some the next day - the same thing. i look at the ingredients and it says BARLEY MALT EXTRACT!!!  my fault i know for not checking the ingredients- but it was in the book as ok!!!

 

so is it ok  or not , or am i just stressing over nothing! and if its not why would they say it was!!

thanks for any info x :)

No.  Barley malt is one of the things we can't have.  Maybe they think its refined enough to not have much gluten?  I haven't heard of that.

thanks

 

very interesting, think i,ll email celiac uk and see what they have to say,

 

so im assuming that they think the gluten contained in the barley malt is so low it shouldnt be a problem. im wondering if this book is gonna be of any use at all !!
