Is This Gluten?

I just bought some lotion from Bath and Body works, and was going thru the list of ingredients, and wasn't sure about this one--Humulus Lupulus Hops. Is this gluten? I really hope not because I love the smell of this lotion!

It's hops - which is a different plant. My guess would be that it is safe, based on the fact that it does not appear to be closely related to wheat, barley, or rye. But I have not seen anything conclusive on it, or even anything controversial on it. This website gives some basic information on the species. And this article from Living Without about brewing beer suggests that it is gluten-free.

Yes, hops is gluten free. Its one of those wonderful ingredients in beer. Put asside the other "bad" ingredients in beer.

Hops is like a plant, its not really a grain. Probably more inline with like lettetuce or other leafy things.

Some info on the above... the smell of hops is really nice, or some like it. Thats usually why they put it in lotions and stuff.
