Stickers On Fruit

Recommended Posts

:blink: DISCLAIMER.....if I made this up then ignore it and chalk it up mothering 4 boys, 6 and under!! :blink:

Does the sticker that comes on fruit have a wheat base to it??

If so is washing the fruit ok or should it be peeled?

And who do you check with to verify this information??

Thanks..

This question was posted on a thread a while back.. if i remember correctly the answer is no wheat involved. I am sure someone will chime in with that answer for sure. I have never had a problem with any fruit with stickers on them.

I eat a lot of apples and until recently, didn't even think about peeling the area the sticker was. I've never gotten sick from it, but I now peel the area where the sticker was, just in case.

I was told years ago by a coworker that the sticker was fruit based. Don't know whether that is true or not.

The whole family has been soy free since February, gluten free since June 2006.

The whole family went back to a gluten diet October 2011.  We never had official testing done and I decided to give gluten a go again.  At this point I've decided to work on making some gluten free things again, though healthwise everyone seems to be fine.  The decision to add gluten back in was also made based on other things I'd read about the 2nd sequence of genes.  It is my belief that we had a gluten intolerance, but thanks to things I've learned here, I know more what to keep an eye on.  If you have a confirmed case of celiac, please don't go back to gluten, it's a lifelong lifestyle change.

I can't remember where but I have read a bunch of differenet places that they use something that is wheat free in the stickers. I don't know what they use, I just remember hearing it was gluten free.
