Has anyone else experienced this? Why can many non-coeliac, glutensensitive Kiwis eat wheat-based foods overseas without experiencing the gut-wrenching pain they feel at home? ● I have an allergy to corn and maize, but when I eat organic corn I am fine. Maybe this could be the same for you, the difference may be organic wheat?
● Yip, noticed this in Europe! No sore tummy there.
● Because it’s not gluten intolerance it’s the toxins used to spray the wheat that is the problem. They’ve proven it overseas. I thought all our wheat came from Australia?
● Clare Hadlow interesting read. Read also through the comments about chemicals used to spray the wheat etc and short-term versus long-term prior to baking.
● Wendy Karl this is so interesting . . . I’ve heard most people in WA have a gluten intolerance because of what they spray on the wheat. Makes you wonder what they put on or in our food sometimes.
● Clare Hadlow yes pretty gross and worrying. Wasn’t around years ago.
● In the UK, gluten-free bread is or was available on prescription, so I think the problem extends beyond our shores.
