I've mixed wheat bran into my cereal and it gave me no "wheat" pain   ,and make me feel fuller longer.

I don't think it has wheat protein,since it's just the outer husk of the wheat and is not absorbed by the intestine.  I think wheat bran is a celiac's best friend  !  What do you think.

It is NOT SAFE for those with Celiac or intolerances or allergies. That's great that it doesn't give you any ill effects but it isn't safe for most in this community.

Of course wheat bran is not safe for Celiacs.

 

Perhaps you don't really have Celiac Disease?  You haven't been an active member for years, so I have no idea if you were diagnosed or not.  I also wonder if someone managed to get into your account and post this for fun?

I wouldn't touch it ... buy it.. or have it in my house. Let alone eat it. My thing is this... Just because it doesn't give you pain doesn't mean it isn't doing something BAD to your body. What would make you do such a thing?

Looks like you were never diagnosed with Celiac disease?  Just having the genes does not mean you have Celiac.  That might be why you can eat small amounts of wheat  and get away with it.

 

Even if the bran didn't have the protein Celiacs react to in it, the processing would certainly leave some.

If you have Celiac or NCGI, you are taking a huge risk eating wheat bran. You may think it is safe to eat, but you are wrong, sorry.

Wheat bran is not safe for celiacs, simple.

- Symptoms from 2001, maybe before. Across 20+ years, these have included, vomiting, D, migraines, headaches, recurrent miscarriage, inflammation problems (failure to heal from injuries) brain fog, anxiety and more!
- Elimination diet using Atkins, 2003 – excluded wheat, caffeine, quorn. 2005, excluded sesame, alcohol
- Started diagnosis route April 2012, blood tests, endoscopy – said negative, gluten challenge, clearly something very wrong, had to stop after 3 weeks.
- Gluten Free, August 2012, Corn Free, September 2012. Removed most processed gluten free foods.
- Genetic testing, December 2012 – negative – Diagnosis – Non Celiac Gluten Intolerance (NCGI)
- Elimination diet, January 2013 – all of the above plus dairy, legumes, all grains, sugar, additives, white potatoes, soy. Reintroducing sloooowly now. Health improving.

At the risk of being warned or even banned, I'm going to say that this has to be about one of the dumbest things that I've heard. Just because it's the wheat husk, it doesn't have any gluten?! That's like saying an orange rind doesn't have any vitamin C. All I can say is that if it works for you, go for it but I wouldn't be recommending it to a Celiac sufferer.

I think with friends like that, who needs any damn enemies. And anyone that would suggest that is an idiot and has no idea what this is all about.

Gonna take more than that to get me upset but I don't want/need anyone giving any newbies or oldies any bad advice that could set them back and make them miserable.

Mommida makes a good point, but Candy may simply think it's okay because she is "not feeling anything"

and we all know that does not mean it's not causing damage..

 

CANDY...stop eating wheat bran.

Very true.  We should look into a way of getting rid of straight up foolishness. ;)

 

Newbies...  If it says wheat, Don't eat! :rolleyes:
