The nutritionist I recently went to works for an adult Celiac doctor.  She said that if I use clay at school (I'm only 13) I shoud scrub my hands really well before eating something that my hands touch.  She also said that Elmers glue is known to contain high levels of gluten.  I just believed this to be true since she probably knows more about it than I do (I'm only 9 weeks on diet). 

Here are the responses I received from Elmers regarding glue and RoseArt regarding their clay:

Thank you for contacting us regarding Elmer's Glue products.

All products are gluten free except for our brand of finger paints, as they
contain a wheat ingredient and should be avoided.

Both our modeling clay and Fun Dough contain wheat flour.

Yes, cosmetics, lotions, soaps and bodywashes can contain gluten, too!
You just have to read labels. Look for "Hydrolized Wheat Protien" and avoid it...
No matter what I used on my skin, I inadvertantly get some in my mouth at one time or another! :rolleyes: So, I steer clear of gluten in my bath products...

And, Lipsticks can contain gluten, too!

--For you boys out there:
Check your girlfriends lipsticks, lotions, and makeup before kissing!! ;)

It's everywhere!!!
