I've mixed wheat bran into my cereal and it gave me no "wheat" pain   ,and make me feel fuller longer.

I don't think it has wheat protein,since it's just the outer husk of the wheat and is not absorbed by the intestine.  I think wheat bran is a celiac's best friend  !  What do you think.

Of course wheat bran is not safe for Celiacs.

 

Perhaps you don't really have Celiac Disease?  You haven't been an active member for years, so I have no idea if you were diagnosed or not.  I also wonder if someone managed to get into your account and post this for fun?

I wouldn't touch it ... buy it.. or have it in my house. Let alone eat it. My thing is this... Just because it doesn't give you pain doesn't mean it isn't doing something BAD to your body. What would make you do such a thing?

Looks like you were never diagnosed with Celiac disease?  Just having the genes does not mean you have Celiac.  That might be why you can eat small amounts of wheat  and get away with it.

 

Even if the bran didn't have the protein Celiacs react to in it, the processing would certainly leave some.

If you have Celiac or NCGI, you are taking a huge risk eating wheat bran. You may think it is safe to eat, but you are wrong, sorry.

At the risk of being warned or even banned, I'm going to say that this has to be about one of the dumbest things that I've heard. Just because it's the wheat husk, it doesn't have any gluten?! That's like saying an orange rind doesn't have any vitamin C. All I can say is that if it works for you, go for it but I wouldn't be recommending it to a Celiac sufferer.

I think with friends like that, who needs any damn enemies. And anyone that would suggest that is an idiot and has no idea what this is all about.

Don't let a troll get you this upset.

 

Gonna take more than that to get me upset but I don't want/need anyone giving any newbies or oldies any bad advice that could set them back and make them miserable.

Mommida makes a good point, but Candy may simply think it's okay because she is "not feeling anything"

and we all know that does not mean it's not causing damage..

 

CANDY...stop eating wheat bran.

Very true.  We should look into a way of getting rid of straight up foolishness. ;)

 

Newbies...  If it says wheat, Don't eat! :rolleyes:

It is NOT SAFE for those with Celiac or intolerances or allergies. That's great that it doesn't give you any ill effects but it isn't safe for most in this community.

I think Stephanie did read it. That's why she posted it. And she said it wasn't safe.

I'm relatively new here, and I have to say that you all should relax about the newbies.  Being new does not equal being stupid or gullible.  

 

This is an obvious troll.  No one is going to take this seriously unless they remain completely uneducated about gluten in all other respects.  Even if the bran didn't contain gluten itself, the mere fact that it's processed from wheat would make it rife with cross contaminants.  I think even a newbie is smart enough to sort that one out :)

I'm glad you know how to use your brain!  :)

 

I used to think this,  too.  Unfortunately,  I can't count the number of people who read the first post "Wheat bran is gluten-free ..." and never go any further down the thread.  Then they mention that they read it somewhere and its OK.  Someone calling herself a home ec expert started giving medical advice and its wrong and all over the internet and is constantly being brought up here as fact.  :wacko:

Agree, wheat bran should not be eaten by celiacs.  There are other forms of fiber that are safe and not expensive.  Like psyillium husks, citrus fiber, celery and many other veggies.  Candy, there is no need to risk your health by eating wheat bran when there are plenty of alternative fiber sources available.  Fiber does help many people's digestion, and can be a useful thing in the diet.  But stick to the safer forms of fiber that don't have gluten in them.

Sometimes it is almost unbearable. :blink:

 

Beware of "I heard," "I saw," or "I read." To me, they are worth as much as "I imagined."

    • I wish they didn't use " gluten" as a headline.  People abuse and starve children for a variety of " reasons".  gluten-free was just one they picked, it could have been paleo or kosher or whatever... 
    • Ugh!  This again..... first ...it was one person...not a study... just someone's speculation. if I am remembering correctly - no one actually tested the retainer. The kid was a 12-16 yr old an drew could have gotten caught eating gluten, etc, etc, etc.   And then those internet folks who love to spread " bad news" or  use that stuff to further their purpose, jumped on it.  And then let's talk to a chemist or plastic scientist - if the plastic leaches our actual proteins, like gluten, wouldn't the plastic piece break down after a while? welcome to the world of Celiac internet myths.   adding - none of the Celiac Centers, Associations, etc have warned people not to use a retainers.
    • Ok, so, here goes. Today I had my teeth cleaned, and this was my first time there since I've been diagnosed. I double checked that their tooth polish is gluten free, and they told me it's safe. I feel fine. Tonight I was at Walmart looking at buying some mouth wash (I was scolded, as per usual), and I Googled gluten free mouth wash. I stumbled upon an article about gluten free products and dental stuff. The person mentioned a study that was released stating that a child's retainer was making her sick because it contained gluten - in the plastic. I had braces when I was a teenager and had them out about 12 years ago. I got one of those old school retainers. The kind with the plastic part for the roof of your mouth and the metal wire that goes around the front. It's cuuuuute. Let me tell you. Anyway, I decided to delve into this more, because I don't know if my retainer is safe now. I found an old thread on here where it looks like people were debating this, and for the most part, seasoned Celiac's agree that it's a bunch of bunk.  Do people have opinions? I know that many of you do a great deal of research into Celiac and that you may have some information. I'm looking for real science - not fear tactics. I wear my retainer religiously, My mom paid almost $5,000 for my teeth to look like they do, and I'm not about to let them get shnaggled again. I'm 29, but they still move if I don't wear my retainer. I've been debating getting a new one - one of the plastic ones that you can't really see, but I don't want to shell out the dough for that until I have to. I'm shocked mine has held up as long as it has.  When I was diagnosed back in November my TTG was >100. Two months later it was 12. So I assume that my little retainer isn't causing much damage, as that's pretty significant. I have to go back in July to have my blood tested again. In the meantime, is this something to stew over? I have no idea where my retainer was made, or who made it. It was a long time ago and I bet if I called my orthodontist to find out who the manufacturer was they wouldn't be able to tell me. Maybe I'm wrong. It was 2004 or 2005, so I'm assuming they won't know at this point. But I could check if people think I should. I feel fine, for the most part. But I was a silent Celiac when I was diagnosed so I don't trust my body to not tell me if I'm being glutened. I'll just say that.  Thanks!
    • They are awesome! But they are not available at Starbucks at some places--like hospitals. Pity!
    • Howdy, No stranger to forums as I've found them to be a great tool for my interests in motorcycles and old trucks but now find myself needing to educate myself in dealing with Celiac Disease. I'm a male in my fifties now and have had to deal with eczema since I was about six years old that was mostly contained to my feet and legs and outgrew it for the most part in my teens. I would have occasional flare ups but about three months ago my elbows and upper torso broke out in blisters and itched like no tomorrow. I hoped it would go away and used Cortisone for relief but finally made an appointment with the Dermatologist. As I'm sure most do, I began researching the internet since this outbreak seemed different than my eczema as a child, and wondered if DH was the culprit. When I showed the Doc and expressed my concern he said, "I have dozens come in that think they are Celiac and are not...but you, most likely are". He did two biopsy's, one for a local lab and the other he sent to the Mayo Clinic and a week later it was confirmed. At the time of the biopsy results I had been gluten-free for two weeks but to my surprise they told me to start eating gluten again as they wanted to do a upper GI scope and needed some lesions to biopsy. I took full advantage and formed a bucket list that ended with pancakes the night before the scope. Still waiting for those results that should come any day and started Dapsone the day after. They have me doing blood work weekly to start and I hope to be off that stuff within a year. My wife has been gluten-free for the better part of ten years as gluten and dairy just don't agree with her. This has been helpful to me since she knows what the good stuff is and we both do the weekly shopping together and so I've learned a lot already, I am somewhat concerned about hidden gluten though, so I still have much to learn. Looking forward to meeting other members of the forum.
