Really Random Question About Paper In Soup!

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone!

I wouldn't know where else to turn but the celiac forums with this question. I am sick and I made myself a great chicken soup to get better. I noticed after I had made the soup and eaten some that a small piece of waxy cardboard paper from the new spoon (part of the packaging) I bought had dropped into the soup and had been there the whole time it was cooking. Being a celiac, of course. now I am worried that this waxy cardboard paper could have gluten and have contaminated the soup. I've already eaten several bowls of it. . . so . . . just wondering, any thoughts? What would you do?

Many thanks from one celiac to another.

A) you've already eaten several bowls of it. So you will know soon enough.

B) freeze the rest of the soup until you find out you don't have a reaction.

C) If you don't have a reaction; then thaw, eat & ENJOY!

There are myths about gluten in paper products, but in almost twelve years gluten-free I have never seen an actual verified example. I don't think you have anything to worry about.

last I checked, paper was made from trees, and wax was made from either bee vomit, fruit, or chemicals.

Great! There is nothing like being able to poll celiacs about a question like this when in doubt. I am very grateful for your answers!

I started eating it last night and I'm still unsure about my reaction time, I'll hold out a little longer, but seems like it's probably all good. :)
