brap: Does this just come naturally or are the bread to do this?
Fubegra: Looks like I picked the wrong week to stop sniffing gluten.

Jim_Callahan: while it only takes more than 10-12 parts to make Scheu ill for weeks.My reaction was "well, that's.... fairly useful, I guess?" until I got to this line.If her case is mild enough that it wasn't even diagnosed until she was in her 60s, it's extremely unlikely that she's anywhere near that sensitive. It's a relatively fixed sensitivity and it's a congenital defect, so it's not like it could have suddenly gotten worse or she spontaneously "caught" it later.If she was actually that sensitive to the protein and had gone undiagnosed, she wouldn't be a grandmother, she'd be 40+ years dead.So... yeah, I would now suspect that the rest of TFA is dodgy pseudocience at best. You can't tell me a blatant lie and then expect me to trust you on the rest of it.

I could be wrong.Btw, she must be shopping at Whole Foods.FTA: 'Doesn't she know how to read labels?' It's not that easy."Federal Food and Drug Administration standards require less than 20 parts per million of gluten for an item to be labeled "gluten-free," while it only takes more than 10-12 parts to make Scheu ill for weeks.It's the second paragraph....
