Gluten Is Hiding Everywhere!


It is crazy to continually learn of all the places that gluten is hiding.  Wheat is being used more and more for different things and for someone that has celiac disease…it can be an issue.   I recently watched this video that talks about how wheat is even used for plastic eating utensils.  I have read that wheat is in toilet paper and paper towels, napkins and facial tissue.

Gluten also hides in our lotions, makeup, sunscreens, shampoos and more.  I have found that the best makeup for myself (that I allow my children to play with) is Younique.  Not ALL of their products are gluten free, but many are.  If you would like to know which ones are, please feel free to message me.

I have also found that there are so many different brands of sunscreen and lotions and shampoos that work.  Some better than others.  However, the best thing to do is to check out the ingredients to make sure you are not getting contaminated.

The items to watch out for are:

Glutens: Hydrolyzed wheat gluten, Triticum vulgare (wheat) gluten

Flours: Avena sativa (oat) kernel flour, hydrolyzed oat flour, Secale cereale (rye) seed flour

Extracts and oils: Barley extract, fermented grain extract, hydrolyzed malt extract, phytosphingosine extract, Triticum vulgare (wheat) germ extract, Triticum vulgare (wheat) germ oil, yeast extract

Proteins: Hydrolyzed vegetable protein, hydrolyzed wheat protein, hydrolyzed wheat protein/PVP crosspolymer

Starches: Hydrolyzed wheat starch, Triticum vulgare (wheat) starch

Dextrins: Dextrin and maltodextrin (usually gluten-free because it’s derived from corn in the U.S., but not always), dextrin palmitate, and cyclodextrin

Vitamins: Vitamin E (may have wheat germ as the source)

Other: Samino peptide complex, sodium C8-16 isoalkylsucciny

Now…if you want to check out more ingredients by their actual name…I have the list for you below.  It’s long and overwhelming but it’s helpful.
