What About Wheat Straw In Garden & Barn?
0

4 posts in this topic

I am new to Celiac Disease (just a couple of weeks) so I'm learning about all of this. My question is - Do I need to stop handling the wheat straw I use in the garden and in the barn for horse bedding? Does anyone know if it can cause a problem just handling it?

Thanks for all of the good info on this board. It is really helps with such a drastic life change.

Hi dperk. I'm not sure, but I 'm thinking that there would be some dust off the wheat straw flying about, and that may at least cause trouble if it was inhaled. <_<

We can get really sick from contact with glutenous products, such as makeup etc., so it's a good question. I'm sure there are others here who would be able to steer you right.

Sorry, I don't know much. :(

I can't point you to specifics but I remember reading somewhere that the wheat straw shouldn't be a big deal. I'd certainly wash my hands. Wear a mask if you want to be extra careful (although I'm not sure that's necessary).

Even though you have Celiacs it doens't mean you have to exclude youself from being around wheat and gluten. If you take the right steps like Richard said about washing hand and maybe wearing a mask you should be fine. If you worked in a regular bakery you could still work ther but would have to wear glovers, watch what goes in your mouth, and such.
