Hydrolyzed Wheat Protein Question

Recommended Posts

Hi! I went and checked out Lavera's website, since I heard they were gluten free. It even says so on their front page but in their shampoos, "hydrolyzed wheat protein" in an ingredient. So, I called to ask. They said that the gluten ingredient was removed from the wheat germ oils & that it is gluten-free. I didn't know that was possible. Is it? My dh & ds are VERY sensitive, so I'd like my products to be gluten-free, too.

The conventional 'wisdom' (not) is, that wheat germ oil and wheat starch don't contain any gluten. But the proof is in the pudding, as they say. MANY people with celiac disease react badly to both wheat germ oil and wheat starch.

I react to shampoo or soap containing wheat germ oil by severe itching, hives, and on my scalp, psoriasis.

Since you and your family are very sensitive, I would advise you not to use the Lavera products.
