I dont know how much gluten they contain, but my feeling is that it is likely

Bran doesn't necessarily contain the same amino acids as endosperm therefore the proteins may differ. I can't find the answer to this anywhere though!

I agree with you. In addition the nutritional value of wheat germ is outstanding, also the extremely low level of gluten contamination is very likely to cause not reaction in the majority of gluten intolerant folks, so it is worth a try. I believe that you cannot get a cheaper source of natural digestible vitamins than in wheat germ.

what I need is a suitable replacement for wheat bran - rice makes my blood sugar rise and I just read from an ND that quinoa and amaranth are not good for celiac disease either.

An excellent replacement for wheat bran is ground flax seed, you get omega3 in as a great additional benefit.

In Austin, Wildwood Bakehouse and Wilder Wood Restaurant are totally gluten free. I had the chicken fried steak and gravy and onion rings!!! Awesome!!!

If you yourself have Celiac's disease, you probably shouldn't give gluten-free sandwiches to the homeless, because they're disgusting. Your male neighbor doesn't need tampons. That sort of reasoning should be applied. But you must always remember that the Gospel requires you to treat other people...

Hi there I have this exact same thing.. however I don?t have celiac that I know of.. I found this when google searching for what the heck is wrong with my face. I was wondering if you ever found out.. or if it just went away. Thanks

I have read the newbie 101 and have been careful about reading labels. I'm the only one that's gluten free in my household, so they could be contaminating me. I was eating gluten for 6 weeks after my blood test because it took that long to get an official diagnosis and my GP told me to still be e...
