Wheat Amino Acids

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

My Nature's Gate Organics lotion lists "Wheat amino acids" on the label. I know "wheat protein" is a baddie, but what about the amino acids?

Anyone know?

Not knowing what company manufactured the "wheat amino acids" in that lotion, I'm not sure. I'd try contacting the mfr.

However, amino acids are often manufactured from wheat proteins. They are hydrolized into separate amino acids, where each of the aa's are isolated for use in research, food supplements, and also for making meds, including TPN solutions for parenteral (IV) feeding.

I was wondering if any celiac patients have had issues with TPN feeding, but I haven't heard of it yet.

Since amino acids are the building blocks of protein, I'd be suspicious.

I wouldn't use it.

Hey everyone thanks for your help! I also found the list of safe/unsafe ingredients on this site, and it did list wheat a.a.'s as unsafe. So I guess I'll be going shopping (again) today.
