I am a devout Catholic and I know that I can receive low gluten wheaten hosts. My question are:
1. Can a Coeliac tolerate low gluten hosts? I beleive the allowable gluten ratio is 200 (I think this refers to 200 parts per million).
2. If you can tolerate a low gluten host, why can't a person receive a very small portion of a normal wheaten host? In other words, only ingest a very small portion of the host, perhaps half a fingernal or less?
Hi, I'm catholic too and my church offers me gluten-free free wafers for communion and they are made from corn.
I'm the only one who has celiac disease in our parish so I have to go tell them I'm there so I can receive the host.
Som catholic churches in the area won't allow gluten-free free wafers. Why I don't understand the reasoning. Jack
