Is it Floradix? Someone told me it was gluten-free and I was taking it for awhile. Eventually a friend pointed out to me that it had wheat germ oil.

I bet they are going to tell you that since it is oil and not the protein you can take it. Don't do it! Return it to the place you got it from or give it to someone who is not celiac.

Here is their answer

"The vitamin E is gluten free, the gluten is removed from the wheat germ oil during the extraction process. "

Best regards
