Airborne Gluten?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I went grocery shopping this morning and I get to the fruit and veg section, which is right next to the bakery, and I could smell all the baking going on. It kind of stopped me in my tracks for a minute but kept going. By the time I was done in that section, I was a little nauseous. By the time I got home I was itchy all over. Okay, I'll admit, maybe it's a psychosomatic reaction? I mean, I am completely itchy, but maybe that's not what it was from? The nausea, maybe it was from the bakery maybe it wasn't. Anyone else have a reaction like this? Is it just in my head?

I have the same problem. I've notice several times, that when I linger too long near the bakery section of our store (they have very yummy-smelling apple pie there), I get the same sharp pain in my stomach as if I drink wheat or rye based distilled alcohol. Not sure about the bakery, but grain vodka was definitely not a psychosomatic issue, I thought I was drinking potato vodka. The same pain appeared as the first symptom when I baked with wheat flour, and from that I got glutened really bad. I'm either super-sensitive or there's some other lighter molecule in wheat that causes the same symptoms.

I get a sick feeling when I go past an Auntie Anne's pretzel place. The smell kills me for whatever reason....

Airborne gluten gets me too. I think that it is only a problem for celiacs that are sensitive to very small amounts. I can't eat processed gluten free grains either.
