#363183 Whey Protein Gluten Problem

Posted by ewalton on 12 November 2007 - 02:59 PM

Glutamine is one of the amino acids (building blocks of proteins- see http://en.wikipedia....wiki/Glutamine) and isn't actually related to gluten, even though they sound similar.

"peptide bonded" is also a bit of a confusing phrase. A "peptide bond" is the way 2 amino acids stick together. So peptide bonded glutamine just means "we added extra glutamine, and it's attached the way it usually is".

I never knew my college chemistry classes would be so useful.
