How much gluten does it take to get you sick? Well according to Jane Anderson, a Celiac and Gluten Sensitivity expert with About Health, the amount varies from person to person. Dr Fasano and the FDA have different ideas on this. Basically it can be:
-as little as a crumb -as much as 1/350th of a slice of bread
-less than 1/500th of a teaspoon of flour (or 1/233,333 of that slice of bread)
Wow, this is a great article and a must read if you or a family member have Celiac Disease or Gluten Sensitivity, especially if you or someone you know doubts how little bit of cross contamination can make you sick. I got cross contaminated and suffered greatly, see January blog post.
