Oddest Places That Have Gluten

Recommended Posts

I attended a Celiac conference today and the doctor from MacMaster Hospital and the nurtitionist (Shelley Case) both said that the gluten molecules are too large to penetrate the skin so moisturizers, shampoos, etc. are fine. The only thing they said to watch for was gluten in lipstick.

I was surprised to hear this. After everything I read on this forum, I pitched my "hydrolyzed wheat protein" items for "gluten and wheat free"....

Thoughts?

My daughter isn't celiac but has allergies to both wheat and gluten. She reacts very badly to anything with wheat of gluten used externally. I would also think if you had celiac it would be all too easy to use a moisturizer or shampoo then not get it fully rinsed from your hands. You cuold then transfer this to your mouth. I would avoid such things. It just isn't worth the risk.

Seventh Generation Maxi pads. Who woulda thunk it? I never would have known had I not been bored while in the bathroom and picked up the package to read it. The absorbant material is made of wheat! Must remember this as daughter has a wheat allergy.

OM-freakin-G!!! What the heck!?!?!???

Why is it that I am continually surprised? Shouldn't there be an end to the hidden gluten thing???

Bah!

:rolleyes:

toothpaste... When I was first diagnosed, Aim toothpaste was the culprit. Who would have thought?

Some of the new calcium added orange juice or other OJ that they process into something special can catch you unaware.

Casa Ole uses flour in their refried beans (definintely not true Mexican food!)

and I've found a bit of flour tortilla in my corn tortilla chips several times. I don't get those at restaurants any more -- even if they say they should be safe.

Tropicana OJ isn't safe?

I drink it, and to my knowledge it's never made me sick. But I'm usually VERY sensitive.

I'll stop drinking it, if it's not safe, I don't want to press my luck.

Does anyone know for sure?

Dear amybeth,

Only Tropicana's 100% Juice is safe. Any others are not safe. I am very sensitive as well. I get violently ill if I ingest a microscopic speck of gluten. I am paranoid careful!

Some things you also would not expect it to be in are:

Pringles Potato Chips (Wheat is in there!) :(

Kellogg's Rice Krispies (Barley Malt)

Any Georgia-Pacific Toilet Paper (Angel Soft) or Paper Towels (Mardi Gras) have gluten in the adhesive at the end of the roll. Do not use the last piece or two!

Amy's Kitchen - CC issues have made others on the forum ill.

Lay's - Stax are safe, because they are made in a dedicated facility, but not the kind in bags.

Yogurt - Dannon (The only ones that are safe are the plain regular, low-fat, and fat-free.)

Tortilla Chips - Some brands have wheat flour in them. Certain brands such as On The Border have safe plain restaurant style tortilla chips, but flavors like guacamole have wheat.

Play-Doh - Children love this stuff, but it can make Celiac kids sick.

Cosmetics - Many are not safe. Bonne Bell Original Lip Smackers contain wheat. Face powders can make you ill and if you accidentally breathe it in, the reaction may be quicker.

Envelopes and Stamps - pretty much every kind has gluten in the adhesive.

Sincerely,

NoGluGirl

I have to second the fish food. I just randomly read the label one morning thinking it would be safe and it was the third or fourth ingredient. Isn't it interesting that the government gives more subsidies to grain farmers than fruit and veggie farmers (atleast in the good ol' US of A)? Hmmm........ a conspiracy? :P

I must have the double wheat fish food.... Ours has Wheat flour, Wheat germ meal, Rolled oats and Wheat gluten meal. Both of the brands we have contain 3 or 4 wheat ingredients.

In China, Lay's chips have MSG, which is wheat based. :( no chips for me!

Where in China are you.? My brother is in Shanghai.

Just noticed, MSG is gluten free in the US, in China is it wheat based? Crap, this is why it's so difficult for everyone.

That is weird! I get super sick from Lays stax, even though they say gluten-free right on the label, but I haven't gotten sick from the bagged Lay's. I had just thought the stax might have CC, I didn't know they had a dedicated facility. Guess I need to investigate the extra ingredients in the stax and find out what's up. <_<

Wallpaper glue has wheat starch in it. I was cleaning my son's bedroom walls and scrubbing the residue off the walls after I had removed his border and was very sick afterward.

Dear Paula and Byte Me,

I know what you mean. The oil is a likely possibility. I only got the unflavored ones. I have trouble due to the oil because I had my gallbladder out. Fats in general need limited. I ate a half a tube today, and I am hoping I will not suffer for it!

Dear mftnchn,

Thanks for telling us! We will know not to eat them if we travel! I have always wanted to go to China! The mountains of Guilin are heavenly! What is allowed where you live?

Sincerely,

Does anyone know about water softener tablets? They're supposed to be salt, but do they put gluten in as a binder?

I had a water softener for years in Michigan and I used different brands of salt, was never glutened by it.

You can always call the company to be sure. Salt should be 100% salt.

Dear Everyone,

I go to Gluten-Free in SD to get some current info on products. It really helps. Here is the URL:

http://www.kintera.org/site/pp.asp?c=ewK0LjP7E&b=2001091 This is a wonderful place to find more current information than we normally can find. This site has served me well a lot. You just look on the left side where they have Product Updates. It has headings at the bottom of this page I gave you. Just click on what you want to know!

Dear Jacqui,

Thanks for posting about the Neutragena. I was wondering about wrinkle creams. They say you should start in your 20s with those! So, I would rather! I desperately need make-up, so the URL above will really help. It has a list of all Maybelline ingredients that contain gluten.

Sincerely,

NoGluGirl
