I've been taking it daily in a vitamin supplement called Daily Complete. Doesn't seem to bother me. When I called the manufacturer I was told it should be fine.

I wondered about that. I saw this fruit juice that had wheat grass labeled, but was marked gluten free.

I've never tried it, and I'm not brave enough to try.

I was told by liquid vitamin shop that the vitamin I was taking (Vitacerin) was not gluten free because it had WHEATGRASS in it. They gave me an alternative vitamin (daytrillen) that is gluten free.

I tried an organic green juice drink from Whole Foods that was labeled "gluten free" but also contained wheat and barley grass. I thought it was safe, so I drank a small sample of it. About an hour later I had stomach cramps, bloating and essentially vomited out of my back side. I posted about it here a bit ago and was told by others that wheat grass does not contain gluten, but the sprouted wheat berries do. Yet, there is no way to extract the plant without contaminating the whole thing with gluten. I don't know how they are able to label these products gluten free.

I ran across this question too. Nutsonline sells wheatgrass powder in the certified gluten free section. I wrote them that is wouldn't be gluten free. They still offer it there. I would never risk trying it. Wheat grass gives birth to gluten grains...I wouldn't want it in my body. I think there is a school of thought that says if the grass only is consumed then no gluten is consumed because gluten can only be found in the mature grain. But who on earth would want to consume the mother of all evils?

I just read an article on this. Wheatgrass is gluten free BUT, the farmer growing the wheatgrass has to cut it just before it starts to seed. Mistakes can be made, unexperienced workers, carelessness. It's scares me. I was taking a multiple vitamin, I was still getting gluten somewhere, I checked the vitamin, it has wheat grass. I'm having less migraines since stopping it.

I think I will stay away from it. :)

And even if they harvest it before it sprouts, the equipment they harvest with is contaminated from harvesting the other stuff, so it is being "glutenized".
