We have a rule on this forum, if you are going to tell us some info that isn't widely known, you need to provide some reliable sources to prove it. I have never seen any reliable source saying that beans, cabbage, turnips and cucumbers have gluten.
Gluten is a protein found in grain which is the seed of a grass type plant. None of these other foods are even related to wheat, rye or barley.
Please provide your sources.
Wow!! Thanks. I guess I'll just move on since this forum is so touchy.
If you were to actually read my post, I was not trying to state a fact I was ASKING a question.
I did provide the source of my confusion, all you had to do was a search on the terms I included in my post. If you do that you will see many many definitions with the statement I posted.
I was just trying to get someone to either refute or verify which is correct.
Other posters on this thread stated that the original poster may have misunderstood what he was reading, I am just providing yet again another example of where this same statement is made.
If it is not true or inaccurate that is fine, but the misleading information is out there in more then one spot, hence my confusion and my question, which I feel is legitimate.
As I said, I understand this is the internet and therefore thing may be incorrect but there are so many sites with the same statement , it makes you wonder.
That was the point of my post. I never once claimed that either statement was correct or not
