Hidden Gluten

Recommended Posts

Carbon-less copy paper. I really started feeling better after I found out about this one.

Can you elaborate on this please?

I am an account manager at a print distributor and I deal with NCR stocks all the time.

Thank you!

TROPICANA LEMONADE!!!!! WHAT OMG I am so glad that I did not buy that the other night. :blink:

Are there any other drinks that are not gluten-free?

Well, most carbonless copy paper is made from wheat. I read about it on the Braintalk board, googled it and found that it was true. I thought about trying to find out what the paper I use at work is made of, but felt too much of a twit to ask anyone. So I started a very strict policy of never touching my mouth or my food without washing my hands first. In fact I try not to touch my food at all! I came across this little fact round about last October. Started feeling much better, ooh round about last November. Coincidence? I don't know.

OMG! Are you serious? wait, what exactly is carbonless copy paper? The paper you put in copy machines ot the paper that imprints copies on multiple pieces of paper without carbon? This is freaking me out!

Oh My God!!! I am a sales rep and my customers sign on 4-ply carbon-less forms every day. I just called the form supplier and they are calling the printer, and trying to find out if there is gluten in these forms. I can't tell you how many times I have handled them and ripped them apart and then eaten a snack or lunch. I live in my car so I use hand sanitizer all the time, but I don't know if that works for gluten.

This is really scary.

Matilda- No, you didn't cause a panic. If anything, you just raised our awareness. I, for one, am very grateful. Thanks, Beverly

One thing that I didn't think would have gluten in it was my children's fruit snacks. I know that they are basically junk food anyway....I just didn't expect them to have gluten in them. And of course I keep on forgeting and then pop one in my mouth :blink:

WOW that's just amazing. Luckily I work with the printers so finding out shouldn't be too difficult - but it is going to be hard since I work in the industry and deal with various forms of NCR (carbonless paper) all the time. I guess I'll just have to be even MORE diligent about washing my hands, as I really have no way around not dealing with NCR stocks.

Thanks for your eye opener, I sure do appreciate it!

peace

Nutrisse told me their hair colors are gluten-free and I use them regularly with no problems. Even had really bad psoriasis pre gluten-free days and now after being gluten-free for only 7 weeks that has almost cleared up. I think my rx shampoos had gluten in them so I switched to Neutrogena t-get and everything got better almost immediately.
