Vinegar As An Anti-gluten Cleaner?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

So I moved out of my apartment, my gluten-free sanctuary Dec. 15. I have been at the mercy of highways, family, and friends since then. This is my first major travel endeavor since going gluten-free. I recalled from my food science class that vinegar's acidic nature destroyed proteins, which may or may not be beneficial in cooking depending on what you want to make..blah blah blah. If it can dissolve egg proteins, why not gluten??? Because really all you need is to break one little amino acid off that chain and we can eat the stuff no problemo.

Long story short it's been working fantastically for me. Pour some vinegar in a skillet, I can eat out of it. Pour some vinegar on silverware, I can eat off it. (User beware: rinse it off it clean water first unless you want a surprise in your mouth.)

I'm curious if anyone else has tried this. Does it work or not work for you? I feel I should consult with fellow gluten-free people before I recommend this to anyone.

And please, of course, don't gluten something then vinegar it...I don't want anyone getting sick off of this. But if you're traveling or a situation arises, try it...be sure to use a clean paper towel to smear the vinegar around. Make sure the dishes are otherwise clean; I'm fairly certain you can't pour vinegar on large bread particles to make them gluten-free you know...still take precautions. I also haven't tried it on anything wooden, I hear those are bears to try to clean.

Pop me some opinions!!

I'd be interested in seeing a study about it, but am skeptical until then. One of the key features of the gluten molecule, particularly the segment responsible for the autoimmune reaction, is that it is *extraordinarily* hardy. It stays intact past 600C. This bugger's hard to denature. Possible? Sure, but I'd want to see actual chemical analysis before using it.
