Milk Question

okay, I may be too paranoid, but this has been bothering me, if gluten is passed into breast milk (human) then wouldn't it be passed into cow milk (if they eat gluten)?

I am seriously worried about this, I know that there is a big thing with "grain fed cows" now, and how they eat a lot of wheat and such, so can the gluten pass into thier milk? I assume it can, but milk is so processed by the time if gets to us maybe the gluten doesn't survive? but, what if it does?

help, I may not be able to sleep until I find out, it's been bothering me since this morning...........

apparently the studies that have been done on cow milk, seem to indicate that they are better at processing the gluten and therefore it doesn't end up in the milk, besides, most of our milk is pasteurized beyond belief which like distillation of grain alcohols, is supposed to make it safe...

humans aren't designed to digest wheat... cows more than likely are better equipped to digest it and process it...

I dunno... I wouldn't worry about it, however, many celiacs are lactose intolerant until the damaged villi are healed, so dairy could make them ill...

thanks. We have been having "gluten issues" and I was going through thier entire diet, and I didn't think it was the milk, but the more analytical I get the more stuff I worry about. I suppose the search continues.......

does anyone know if there could be gluten in stickers?

Hi Joey/Nini

Nini--good explaination of the issue..thanks

Joey---missed you here.

I don't know about gluten-free milk but know i can't drink it or anything with milk now :blink: Lactose intollerant..

booooo.

Well according to Karen, the envelopes and stamps shouldn't be licked...bet that would include 'stickers' and we know how kids love stickers.

Also, Joey, If you haven't checked out the paper plates and paper towel thread you MUST.

It's amazing ---we're being taken over by the 'gluten coodies' :blink::huh::ph34r:

Hope your doing well.

Gluten absolutely does NOT pass into cow milk or into the meat of animals. This has been confirmed by veterinarians and grain researchers. This simply is not a concern.

Every time anybody has ever checked on stickers, they have been gluten-free. The adhesive is not the type that would use wheat.

Smunkee,

You are not alone....I too wondered about the gluten in cow milk. I hope there isn't any because I eat dairy every day. Richard, I would love to see a study, because a lot of doctors say that gluten can't be passed via breastmilk either (and they are wrong). Let's hope the cows DO have better digestive systems than us people.

Merika :)

it's perfectly reasonable to suspect stickers... in fact most of the information on safe school products always includes a warning about stickers. I let my daughter play with stickers, but she does NOT stick them on her skin, and she MUST wash hands immedieately after playing with stickers. Better safe than sorry.

Well they have multple stomaches, and are designed to be veggitarians, while ppl are designed to be omnivores and only have 1 stomache, thats a fiarly big difference.
