The fullness of the Eucharist is found in the wine alone. However, glutenfreewatchdog did an article on the low gluten hosts recently. She tested a single host from the Benedictine sisters and found it to contain 0.0017 mg of gluten. Compare that to the 0.57mg found in a piece of gluten free bread. The amount of gluten you are exposed to is negligible if you take a low gluten host

Thanks TexasJen.

As a Catholic with Celiac Disorder, I was dismayed at the over-reaction to the Vatican's announcement. Unfortunately many Catholics are not educated in the faith and do not fully understand the dogma or symbolism behind the rituals. The Eucharist is about trasubstantiation and transubstantiation is about being spiritually present. In truth, one doesn't even need to receive the wine to fully participate in the sacrament. Being present and receiving the blessing is enough.

But it is nice that the low gluten host is an option--especially for a Celiac child receiving a first communion.
