Sounds similar to the "Glutenzyme" and other such products now available. Perhaps it takes it further, but IMHO it is still too much risk.

I won't be trying any such pill. Not worth it. I have enough to deal with, without introducing some laboratory-engineered enzyme into my system.

I wonder what other members think.

They'll probably manufacture it with an undeclared wheat starch binder and lactose coating. :wacko:

I believe my auto immune disease is already too severe to risk furthering more brain and neurological damage by ingesting small amounts of gluten, then expecting a "pill" to handle it.

gluten-free since June, 2011

It took 3 !/2 years but my intolerances to corn, soy, and everything else (except gluten) are gone!

Life is good!
