Funny that you post that link , because if anybody reads it , it says this :All three components contain a plant storage protein known as gluten............ So you should read what what you post. it contains GLUTEN!! Read more: http://www.livestron.../#ixzz2egdQYeFk


I think Stephanie did read it. That's why she posted it. And she said it wasn't safe.

I'm relatively new here, and I have to say that you all should relax about the newbies.  Being new does not equal being stupid or gullible.  

 

This is an obvious troll.  No one is going to take this seriously unless they remain completely uneducated about gluten in all other respects.  Even if the bran didn't contain gluten itself, the mere fact that it's processed from wheat would make it rife with cross contaminants.  I think even a newbie is smart enough to sort that one out :)

I'm glad you know how to use your brain!  :)

 

I used to think this,  too.  Unfortunately,  I can't count the number of people who read the first post "Wheat bran is gluten-free ..." and never go any further down the thread.  Then they mention that they read it somewhere and its OK.  Someone calling herself a home ec expert started giving medical advice and its wrong and all over the internet and is constantly being brought up here as fact.  :wacko:

Agree, wheat bran should not be eaten by celiacs.  There are other forms of fiber that are safe and not expensive.  Like psyillium husks, citrus fiber, celery and many other veggies.  Candy, there is no need to risk your health by eating wheat bran when there are plenty of alternative fiber sources available.  Fiber does help many people's digestion, and can be a useful thing in the diet.  But stick to the safer forms of fiber that don't have gluten in them.

Sometimes it is almost unbearable. :blink:

 

Beware of "I heard," "I saw," or "I read." To me, they are worth as much as "I imagined."

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. 

 I totally understand avoiding wheat as a deadly, brain shrinking,gut ripping substance for us pure intolerants. But I don't think wheat bran is "wheat". It doesn't taste like bread or anything else for that matter. It tastes like sawdust, albeit sweet ,sawdust-probably why most people avoid it.It's the outer dry skin on the wheat-I'm in love with it myself.Wheat bran has some of the B-vitamins Celiacs are lacking(like Thiamine,Riboflavin and Niacin),plus potassium ,protein and iron and the fiber we all need,but with no pain in the gut,at least for me.I'm in love with my new friend wheat bran..... I only eat a few tablespoons a week.I'll have Mom send you all funeral notices if it kills me,ha ha.

I have DNA ancestry in NW.EUROPE,where CELIAC'S known to be common.

DEC. '05 TESTED POSITIVE for the Celiac GENES HLA-DQ2 , and DQ3 SUBTYPE DQ8
Celiac Negative Endoscopy-Aug.'08 - Diagnosed with Hernia and GERD(Gastric Esophageal Reflux Disease),and prescribed Acid Reducing Medication. I hadn't eaten WHEAT for a year prior to the Endoscopy-maybe that's why result was Negative. I need TTG test to determine Active Celiac Status/

Disgnosed with Sjogren's 9/19/2008- Internist referred me to Eye Doctor and Rheumatologist.

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.

For that matter ,you can't make a loaf of bread with wheat bran,you know why? Because the bran has no stretchy ,puffy gluten ,like real wheat has.You can't knead bran,or make it rise..it doesn't puff up and you can't roll it , pull it and shape it into bread.It's just flat and dry like autumn leaves.So if you can't make a puffy loaf of wheat bread out of bran,then bran must not be glutinous like wheat is,therefore I shall eat some wheat bran weekly.
