Glutened In A Small Dose?

3 posts in this topic

Wondering how many here would have any symptoms if glutened in a small dose, when otherwize maintaining a gluten free diet?

For an example, you ate some chicken that you found out later was prepaired with a little bit of soy sause.

or maybe a salad dressing had some malt vinegar in it?

In other words are some of us more sensitive to gluten than others? Or are there minor or no symptoms

after a small dose of gluten?

First, there are no degrees of celiac.

Some people may react to it and some may not but in both cases the damage is being done even with that small amount of gluten.

I get very bad reactions even to the smallest amount but I know people that don't have any symptoms. You have celiac or you don't and if you have it you have to be 100% gluten free.

The things you are describing from contamination like chicken prepared in soy sauce, etc will cause damage...whether you feel it or not.

Hope this clears some things up for you.
