In Topic: Gluten Free Epsom Salts?

02 December 2014 - 10:14 PM

AngieJoy did you have any luck finding gluten free or certified gluten free Epsom salts? I'm extremely sensitive to cross contamination and can't seem to use ANYTHING that's not verified. Epsom salt baths significantly help my rls and muscle spasms when I get glutened but I want to make sure I can find and use soemthing safe for me. I'm disgusted at how rude some of these comments have been towards your very legitimate question. I am only wish I wasn't this sensitive and didn't have to check everything I ingest, touch, bathe in, put on my face or inhale but such is my life. And I am part of a good support group of people who are mostly even more sensitive than I am. Any info on the Epsom salts would be totally appreciated!

Thank you cyclinglady. My dog doesn't do well with grains anyway either so it works out. I have been giving her my leftover meat in her kong for treats as well. I never got glutened from Her ild food but it started to make her sick so I had to switch and I've heard good things about natures domains thanks!

Maybe we have different levels of sensitivity, I have gotten incredibly sick from pet treats and chewable pet antibiotics. In pet food they can even use wheat starch and label it gluten free or grain free. My dog is all over my couch and bed and we snuggle a lot- if it's on her face its bound to get on mine.

Oh god no I never eat out! Ever. I pack all my food ahead of time and take it all in an ice chest. My boyfriend stays entirely gluten free with me for the whole trip as well. I absolutely cannot figure out where it's come from.

Oats don't contain gluten. Oats are often manufactured on shared equipment but the oat itself doesn't contain gluten. So the company was right in telling you their product is gluten free. You might have a reaction to oats but it isn't from any gluten "in" oats since there is no gluten in oats.

While not EVERYONE reacts to oats a lot of us do and most doctors and reputable celiac websites will tell you to stay away from them unless they are 100% gluten free grown and processed. Because of this I say it is absolute BS for a product to be labeled gluten free when it contains something known to make many celiacs react. I've heard of celiacs that don't react to a certain wheat product but do to others - that doesn't mean its safe and that doesn't mean something with wheat should be labeled gluten free! Besides that fact, it also contains barley so the point is almost moot anyway.
