Erasers gluten free?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi, 

i am a teacher and would like to give my students a non food treat at the end of the week. I have a student who has celiac in my class. I considered special pencil erasers. Are erasers gluten free? I know markers and glue could sometimes have gluten and I just want to be 100% about erasers being gluten free.

I think erasers are just fine.  As a celiac, I never worry about erasers and I am touching and scooping up eraser crud daily created by  me, hubby and a high schooler!

Found this for non-food treats created by University students for elementary school-age kids:

Erasers, markers and glue don't have gluten. 

Now just don't make papier-mâché with them. That has gluten.

Some non-toxic glues do have gluten but Elmers is safe. Their finger paints are not safe though. I looked up Elmers because they are one of the most commonly used glues in school.

From their web site-

"Is Elmer's glue gluten free?

All of our products are gluten free except for the Elmer's Finger Paints. The finger paints contain wheat and oat products."

Which glues have gluten? Cannot find info on that, besides of course wallpaper paste which is why I said no papier-mâché .
