This is UK information, but I suspect that it is similar in the US. I have never seen evidence that envelope glue contains gluten. If there is information contrary to this, please post.

There may be a very few vending machines that still dispense a strip of gummed-adhesive postage stamps. Otherwise all U.S. postage stamps are self adhesive and have been for years.

No evidence other than what i've read on the forum. A year and a half ago I was getting glutened with some regularity and could not figure out why. Someone here suggested it might be glue in the envelops so I stopped licking... No more problems. Now I only have only 1 reason to be sick from paying bills! --

I remember reading that most paper glues are more likely to be corn-based...but still, from seeing too many people say they were glutened from liking envelopes, stamps, etc., I don't think it's worth taking a chance.

Remember this is TOTALLY FALSE :blink: but should nevertheless gross you out enough to keep you from ever licking another envelope ever again!

Scroll a little more than half way down the page for the envelope version. :lol::ph34r:
