When we say you've been "glutened," that something "glutens" you, or that something is "glutening" you, it means you're getting symptoms of gluten ingestion from that food product.

Perfectly clear and normal expression for us.
However, "to gluten" is not an existing verb.

In our quest to increase awareness of gluten intolerance, we should try to get this verb added to the language.
Unfortunately, I have no clue how to achieve this.

(btw, even Celiac is considered an error by the computer)

Have you tried coeliac - this is our British/Australian accepted spelling. Could be that your PC is on British English spelling and you'll need to change it if your local accepted spelling is celiac (as it is in the US).
I'm just trying to google about adding words to dictionaries but google is having an out of character dummy spit. Get back to you on that one.

Here is a bit of research for you:

If all of us got onto these kind of websites then the 'usage' as described in the above link could be recognised:

http://www.urbandictionary.com/add.php

This is what I added to urbandictionary:
Word: gluten
Def: On many celiac/coeliac and gluten intolerance related websites/forums our community uses gluten (glutened/glutening) as a verb. To be glutened means eating gluten unknowingly. It happens to us all with cross contamination and others not understanding our need for NO gluten not 'a little bit is okay' gluten.
Examples:
I was [glutened] today at our local restaurant.
My latest [glutening] resulted in a trip to hospital.
