Gf Kissing Project

5 posts in this topic

I have been wondering about the transfer of gluten durning kissing, and have learned that it is a real problem, but there is not any research on it. I am interested in learning:

how long after eating gluten to wait before kissing a gluten-free person

what procedures should be done to speed up the process (brushing, drinking, etc.)

what kinds of gluten-containing things transfer more gluten.

I am doing research this fall (hopefully) but need some way (besides stomach aches) to scientifically quantify the amount of gluten in one's mouth. Has anyone ever heard of test strips etc. that would test for gluten?

I would like to get results out into the Celiac/ gluten-free community.

Thanks

Camila

There is currently no way to test for the presence of rye or barley, but there are test kits for wheat. Let us know how it goes :)

That would be interesting to know...let us know how the results come out if you do that. Unfortunately there is not testing kits for everything...there should be though

I am super-duper-uber sensitive and my boyfriend actually uses 3 toothbrushes after eating something glutenny. So far it's worked, even though I'm still a little apprehensive after he eats a whole pizza <_<
