I have recently discovered that I am intolerant of ALL grains due to the minute amounts of gluten in all grains, even rice.

This link: http://www.glutenfre...ity-what-is-it/ has helped to shed some light on why am still having problems. However the website seems driven toward selling something. I am at a loss as where to find the information about psyllium husk and whether it is truly gluten free.

Taking psyllium husks in the past has been unpleasant (no, painful), but I was not truly grain free at the time and my problems may have been associated with the other grains in my diet. Does anyone have any thoughts?

I don't know about psyllium, but the information on that site is incorrect. The storage protein in grains is different from grain to grain.

You will need to check with the supplier of the psyllium husk to see if they process it on shared lines or if there are any other cross contamination possibilities. I can tell you that I have never had a problem the brand I use, Yerba Prima.

The brand I use is produced in a dedicated gluten-free facility (Purely Bulk).
