Just Thought Of A Strange Possible Source Of Gluten!

Recommended Posts

The last paper towel on the roll is attatched with a glue. I heard that most cigarettes have gluten from the glue and I was about to use the last paper towel, and thought.....I wonder if that glue contains a form of gluten.

I know I'm weird but maybe it's something we should think about before you wipe your hands or plates or hold your food with it!

After a much debated 17 page thread, it was concluded and verified that the "glue" in paper towels and toilet paper is composed of Modified Corn Starch - Not of a gluten worry.
