Hi all,

 

So after purchasing Brazil nuts from Trader Joe's I find that they were made on the equipment shared with wheat products.

 

Not wishing to be defeated, I washed them in cold water and dried them off.  However, I was sick after eating.

 

My question: is there received wisdom about the efficacy of washing such products made on shared equipment? what is the normal advice?

 

Thanks!

You can ask others, but I don't think that you can wash gluten off of foods and then consider it gluten free.
