Hidden Gluten

Recommended Posts

Guest cassidy

I thought I was doing a good job of finding all the hidden gluten, but I wasn't. My herbal tea now has a "contains trace amounts of wheat" label. It is Salada decaf red berry green tea, for any other tea drinkers. Now I'm wondering if there are other things I've not even considered. I've checked all my cosmetics & toiletries and changed a few of those. We have separate pots and pans just because we both had a set when we got married and we both prefer our own. I am still getting myself sick and I can't figure out why. Where did you finally find your last bit of gluten?

Lemondade... some cloudy lemondade mixes have gluten in them (I can't remember the brand, it was a generic)

Generic Soda from the Dollar General store... YIKES!

unless you can verify ingredients with the company, I now avoid GENERICS!!!

Publix grocery store has a great list of all of there generic store brand products that are gluten-free.

In my pet foods and can opener. I bought a new people only can opener and now check pet food labels as well as human. Wheat is the first or third ingredient in most of them, why?

certain lunchmeats (like roast beef)

condiments (butter, mayo) in my fridge that were used with gluten foods (we now have separates)

my main one is not a label----but cross contamination through eating out. I have less than a handful of places that I can eat at anymore, I am so sensitive.

good luck!!!!

Of all things...my dh's mustache. He's a beer drinker and it took me forever to figure out that was the gluten source.

As for the pet food, I use rubber gloves when handling, especially at the barn.

Ha ha--that was funny :) But I'm sure it wasn't at the time! (You have a barn--and animals?)

For me, my MAC lip conditioner was a source of hidden gluten.

My dh didn't want to believe that it could be him. Ha Ha. I don't have a barn. I ride horses and I sometimes help my trainer feed when I'm at her barn. I do have a red merle Australian shepherd by the name of Boomer...and of all things he's bit wheat sensitive. Good to know about the MAC lip conditioner.

Chelsea-

Yes, some of their other products do have gluten...as well as many other makeup companies. Unfortunately, I can't recall which products exactly. One of two of MAC's lipstick types definitely have gluten in them--wheat germ oil I believe. If you e-mail them they can provide you with ingredient lists of the products you are using. Oh, just did a search back to when I called and got info on MAC. You may want to ck again but go here to view-I'm the 1st response: http://www.glutenfreeforum.com/index.php?s...aded&show=&st=&

I'm not sure about that one, but I would definitely check--don't want you licking any gluten off your lips!

Aveda lipstick. I love it, and because it contains peppermint oil, would lick my lips, because it tasted good!

To make them cheaper. :(

The pet foods that I've seen that are not this way are expensive.

My hidden source is labels - grrrrr. Generic terms like spices, ____ oil, ____ extract have all caused me problems.

Also, how's this one for you all - b/c we have to worry about things like stickers and glue, what about the stickers and sticker residue on fruits.....??? Scary..... I don't know if these have gluten, but I just realized that these have the potential to be a source.

Its funny--I was wondering about the labels on the fruit, too. I just wash it off real well, but cutting it out is a great idea.

I just found out that MAC Brush Cleanser has some kind of wheat stuff in it. It's a good thing I never used it to wash my makeup brushes.

I'm still grossed out by the fact that preshredded cheese has flour. Ew. That would stop me from eating it even before going gluten-free.

I don't think the rosemary mint shampoo/conditioner have wheat, but you'll have to check for sure. I might have only looked on one out of two bottles. Their shampure line does have wheat. :(

I really like the shea butter lipbalm from l'Occitane. I got it at Sephora. It's like $10/stick but it's SO NICE. A cheaper version that really works is the Vitamin E stick from Reviva labs. I got that at whole foods for a few dollars.
