Dextrin Palmitate

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I am looking at some skin care products.  The pharmacist who makes them insists that dextrin & dextrin palmitate are sugars and not gluten.  On all the lists of things to avoid, dextrin & dextrin palmitate are listed as hidden gluten.   Does anyone have an answer to why a dextrin sugar would have hidden gluten?

Dextrin is made by breaking down starch.  If the starch came from wheat, there could be contamination with wheat protein (gluten).  But I think in the US if dextrin is from wheat it is supposed to say so.
