Are we still avoiding hydrolyzed wheat protein in our shampoos? I read they are safe for celiacs and I read they are unsafe for celiacs.... What's the final word?

Who knows? It's definitely bad for DH but in general why choose a shampoo with hydrolyzed wheat when there are so many without???

That is definitely something I avoid. Enough scalp problems already without taking that risk.

I avoid it. People really do ingest shampoo standing up in the shower. Some people take the baking soda test. Add baking soda to your shampoo. If you end up tasting the baking soda during the shower, then you know a small amount does get into your mouth for you to ingest.

well I guess that settles it. I was going through some cabinets last week and I found a few bottles of my old shampoo that contains hydrolyzed wheat protein and I just can't get rid of them. I love that stuff and it was expensive too. Oh well :(

If you have a food pantry near by they might gladly take them even if there is a little bit out of the bottle. The pantry I volunteer at will take big bottles and break them down into smaller ones for smaller families. Your local pantry might do the same and toiletries are needed just as much a food is by many folks.

I would imagine that if you eat your shampoo in the shower, it would be alarmingly apparent. Shampoo has a much stronger taste than baking soda.

Not everyone eats their products and using gluten-free shampoo is a choice issue or a must if you have topical allergies. If anyone is uncomfortable with using non-gluten-free topical products, then they should stick with gluten-free products as they will end up ingesting it from trying to be too careful.

Mothers of very young Celiacs should also use gluten free hygeine products. Cross contamination from skin lotions and such, is too much of a risk.

Not just mothers. If you wash your hands with gluten-containing soap before making your meal, you have little chance of eating gluten-free. It depends on your level of sensitivity if you will react to such trace amounts of gluten or not.

    • First, do you have celiac disease?  I assume you do.  Have you recently had a celiac antibodies follow-up blood test panel to see if gluten has been actually getting into your diet by accident or through cross contamination?  If you haven't had the test, you should ask your doctor for one.  You could also also ask for a follow-up endoscopy to see if you intestines have truly healed.  This will rule out if gluten is really the problem.    If gluten is not the problem, then your doctor needs to check you for other issues, like SIBO. There is a test to check for SIBO.  Has this been done?   Once a celiac, always a celiac.  There is no cure for celiac disease except to remain on a gluten free diet for life.    
    • I am so confused right now.... 6 years ago I went on gluten free diet... after being on it for the first yr I was 100%better up until 5 months ago in got the "flu" the doctors told me to cut out dairy sonic did and my diarrhea  became better but not completely gone would not have it every day tho. I went to the gi doctor and they said to cut out fructose and dairy and keep gluten out... yesterday I went to the dietitian to see what I can eat and she gave me the list for fructose... she said it should have been on a antibiotic for sibo.... eventually I will be able to add dairy back and maybe gluten.... I said how can I add gluten back when this was my first problem... she goes well through fructose goes hand in hand with it... I said with gluten I vomit and am sick for weeks.... fructose isn't that bad I vomit sometimes but I'm not sick for weeks.... I'm just confused on really what is going on and was wondering if you or someone you know had sibo from gluten and or fructose and how Is this all related?
    • I see no one has responded to your query.  Unfortunately I have yet to try making a pie crust.  It was something I never mastered before going gluten free.  Have you looked on Pinterest?  You might find something there.
    • I honestly feel like both doctors think it's all in my head even though there is proof.  Yeah there was a point when I felt crazy.  That was when I was being shuffled from dr to dr being given individual diagnoses of my problems.  None of those diagnoses ever made me get better.  Seriously I was diagnosed with heart palpitations, neurocardiogenic syncope, I was given a butt load of steroids because a dr felt like I was producing too much adrenaline, freaking had a few tell me I was depressed, and the good ol IBS.  It seemed most wanted to push pills.  It's all just ridiculous!
    • I can't believe your doctors!!! You have a daughter who is dx'd already! Yet the ped doesn't want to test your other kids unless you have a dx????!!! Are you kidding me???!!! That's absurd!!! They have a first degree relative who has been dx'd with celiac already. There is no need to wait to see what you turn out to be!! And then, and then, and then....don't even get me started on your doctor!!! Does he have brain damage? Oh this is insane & ridiculous!  I have never heard of a disease that doctors are so unwilling to consider or test for OR to diagnose as this one! Usually they are hot to trot to make a dx but say the word celiac & they shake in their boots. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
