:huh: Took my kids to go strawberry picking this morning. All excited! Organic, no pesdicides, cheap, yada yada.

I noticed this weird grain looking grass growing from the ground all around the strawberry patches so I asked the owners what it is. I say, "is that wheat growing from the patches?...no...whew(I think to myself).....it's rye <_< She said it comes in the hay and grows from that.

So now what to do? Should I eat them? I could just give them a good rinse. Do I worry about cross contamination? Are ALL strawberries grown like this? For that matter, all fruits and veggies?????? :angry:

Has anyone delt with this? I am just beside myself. I've been eating (store bought) strawberries a lot. I just don't know what to think!

Are you able to know when you have been glutened? If so, and you have not reacted to the store bought ones, then these may be fine as well. All fruits and veggies should get a good washing anyway.


GLUTEN FREE 4/4/08. LEGUME/SOY FREE 5/15/08. YEAST FREE. CORN FREE. GRAIN FREE. DAIRY FREE. I am eating all meats, eggs, veggies, fruits, squash, nuts and seeds. I just keep getting better every day. :)

Unfortunately no. I somtimes will get extra "gassy" when I've been glutened, but other than that Idon't get any other symptoms.

I did notice today though, that after I had already eaten 4 that my nose itched really bad and my lips were a little hive-y. I will have to see if that happens with the store bough ones too.

I am a FREAK about washing my produce, would washing these strawberries be acceptable practice for celiacs???

I read somewhere on this form that regular California strawberries are grown with artificial mulch. No gluten there. So, most of the strawberry supply should be safe. But if you're worried, call the 800# on the package. :)
