Protection from Gluten Contamination

My family and I are vacationing with relatives, we are renting a house, and while I requested ALL food be gluten free, there are some items that have gluten, my question is this: Can we just boil all the cooking equipment to prevent cross contamination or do I need to bring all my pots and pans and ect... from home, my 8yr old daughter has Downs syndrome and Celiac Disease.

You're Not Killing Germs..

Hi Kelly,

You do not need to boil and sterilize to prevent cross-contamination. You are getting a flour residue off and not killing germs. A standard dishwasher will do the trick just fine, but if that's not available, then hand washing will be just fine too.

Tens of thousands of Celiac's travel the world without resorting to carrying their own pots and pans everywhere.

Since some amount of cross contamination is unavoidable, one thing that could help your daughter to react less to the inevitable gluten is to start her as soon as possible before you leave on your trip on Glutenzyme Gluten Specific Enzyme Supplement.

Celiacs have reported that it decreases their reactions the times that they do accidentally eat gluten and can just make her more resilient to eating small amounts of gluten by decreasing the inflammation present and digesting the protein that DOES leak into her bloodstream.
