Glutened Just From Stitting In A Pizza Place?
0

4 posts in this topic

I am in pain right now. I am pretty sure I got glutened. Earlier today I had a meeting at a pizza place. Obviously I didn't eat or even drink anything while there. Could it have been from inhaling flour in the air? I never considered my self hyper sensitive. Occasionally my two non celiac children will have poptarts or other gluten containing products in the house that they can fix with out my contacting those items, but it has been at least a month. There is no other way I could have been glutened in the last few days.

Perhaps from crumbs on the table, benches? I find pizza parlors frequently have greasy seats and tables. All it would take is touching a surface with a crumb...getting it on papers, purse, etc....and it making its way into your mouth.

Flour in the air is a possibility, especially if you were near the kitchen.

Or, you could have that nasty stomach bug I've had...if my son wouldn't have had it also I would have thought it was gluten.

I worked in a pizza place for 8 months before I went gluten free. Of course, I ate tons of pizza and pasta during that time, so I always joke that the restaurant caused my Celiac.

That said, yeah, it's definitely possible that you came into contact with flour without eating anything. If it was a small pizza joint and not a larger restaurant, more likely that there's flour in the air, or things aren't cleaned as well.

Or you've got PricklyPear's cold.

Hope you feel better soon!

Probably CC from every surface. Benches, chairs, tables. And flour in the air too. I once had a meeting at Panera Bread. I arrived early to scope out the seats. All covered in crumbs and I wiped them with a napkin the best I could. I decided not to even drink anything during the meeting as I could see flour dust on every table. I never noticed this before I went gluten free. I can see how easy it would be to get glutened in a pizza place. Hope you feel better soon.
