#717778 Can Kissing Cause Me To Get Glutened?

Posted by veruca on 21 July 2011 - 08:08 AM

I don't know if this is a stupid question or not, but I just wanted to ask to get everyone's opinion! If my boyfriend has had lunch before he comes over, and say for example he had a burger or a sandwich, or even eating it next to me, and we then kiss after it or later on, would I get glutened from it?
I feel silly asking but I just want to know because I always think about it haha!



IF you are really careful about the rest of your diet and lifestyle I don't think this will affect you, unless you are EXTREMELY sensitive. There are definitely people that react to even a minute amount of gluten, but if you are careful then you shouldn't change your life so much. Of course if your boyfriend still has some bread in his mouth don't kiss him or if he has a beard full of crackers.

I have heard this question asked before and have inquired as to this myself and the bottom line is unless you are VERY sensitive then it's okay.
