is "Glucose Syrup (from wheat)" in ingredients safe?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi.

I've noticed that a few candies out there(that my daughter would like to try, of course) list "Glucose Syrup (from wheat)" in the ingredients, yet I've heard that someone with celiac shouldn't worry due to the amount of processing that goes in to making it, essentially removing the gluten protein.

Do you think it's safe? Has anyone with celiac tried it? If so, any reaction?

Thanks!

Depends on how and where it is processed. What candies are you talking about, I might be able to track down some alternatives. I have a knack for finding gluten free food and alternatives.
