Yesterday when I was at wholefoods someone told me that there wasn't any gluten in wheat grass??? Could this be true??? I'd love to be able to drink those great green drinks but I was operating under the perception that I couldn't have wheat grass. The person I spoke to thought this was ridiculous?? So confused . . . . :(

You were right, and that person who you talked to is the one being ridiculous, not you.

Even though theoretically wheat grass shouldn't contain gluten, the risk of contamination is too high to bother with it.

Others have tried using wheat grass and reacted to it. It is your choice if you want to try it. But personally, I wouldn't do it (and the same goes for barley grass).

Like Ursa said, you were right. At our farmers market there is a nice couple selling wheat grass that they said was gluten free until I gave them a bunch of papers I got of the net saying otherwise. There is no way we should consume it as there is still enough gluten protein to make us miserable.
