Hello,
I am a Type B just starting out. When I read the ingredients of Ezekiel bread, it listed wheat gluten, and it did not say "sprouted wheat gluten" as it did before most other ingredients listed. Is this OK?
Thanks, Cindy

Hi Cindy and Welcome!

Gluten is an ingredient in wheat, and therefore would not be sprouted.  If you are gluten sensitive, sprouted wheat could be a problem, since it contains gluten, as does whole wheat.

wheat gluten is a favorite ingredient among vegetarians....
veggie burgers are even done with this!
find a brand of sprouted bread that doesn t have wheat gluten added or wheat flour.......or learn how to make your own sprouted bread!
there are quite a few recipes here.
welcome!

I am a b  type and confused, is it the whole wheat or the gluten that i need to avoid. What about unbleached wheat flour, with or without gluten. A lot of white breads and oatmeal breads have unbleached wheat flour but they also have gluten? I am confused what am I to watch out of, is it just whole wheat products?

Welcome stuck,

I recommend that you go to the member center and fill in the information fields and select a blood type avatar.

What book are you using as your guide? You can also use Typebase, the link is at the top of every forum page. Follow the recommendations in the book or Typebase.

If you don't have a gluten intolerance, then gluten is not really the primary issue you need to be concerned about.

Gluten is a protein in wheat, rye, barley and spelt.  If one is gluten intolerant, they should avoid those grains.  I do buy green drink powder that has sprouted wheat in it and it says it's gluten free. Barlean's Greens... Teecino contains barley, and it was tested and they found no gluten in it.  So sometimes there are exceptions.

I'm excited to hear Teecino is gluten free.  BUT barley IS a gluten grain isn't it?  How would
barley be listed on the label and yet the product is gluten free.  Just confused.

I am gluten intolerant and I am really afraid to drink anything with a gluten grain written on
its package. DId the company tell you that Teecino had no gluten?

If you are a B secretor and not gluten sensitive then you can have white bread and semolina.  They have less gluten in them then whole wheat. I f you are a non-secretor then you canít have even them.  Spelt is beneficial for secretors and neutral for nonnies.  I use the Amish brand for noodles and never had any negative effects from it.  Rice is OK for gluten sensitive individuals.

I get very sick from gluten and the only grains I eat are rice and quinoa.(Amaranth is ok I think but it just looks like birdseed to me.) Spelt and kamut are tasty but not safe, despite what healthfood store staff may tell you.
Tinkyada makes delicious rice pastas- you wouldn't know the difference.
Quinoa looks like couscous but has more flavour, is yummy, *and it's really high in magnesium which is good for you type B's.***

If you're in good health, then wheat may not even be an issue for you, but don't overdo it. I found that many of the foods listed as avoids for me have developed into allergies. In fact, I started the gluten free diet before the ER4YT. The gluten protein in wheat is found in ALL derivatives of it, even the bleached out white flour. I don't eat sprouted bread even, but it might be fine for you in moderation.

It's not so much that there's less gluten in brown bread. However, the lectin that is so reactive to blood antigens is found more so in the germ than in the endosperm.

I don't think barely actually has gluten (could be wrong) as much as it tends to be processed in wheat processing facilities and is almost always contaminated with gluten (just like oats).

As a B, I wouldn't worry so much about gluten as an ingredient, unless you're gluten intolerant. For us O's, pretty much anything related to wheat is out.
