Is Manna bread gluten free?


I am sticking with a GFCF diet and was wondering if Manna bread is considered GF. It has three ingredients: Organic carrots, raisins, and wheat berries cooked at 120 degrees.
The company is reputable, but I can't figure out if the sprouted wheat berries are the same as regular wheat.--LMT

I think LMT, that because there is still so much that is unknown in this area, that you will sometimes get conflicting responses. Here are a few:

http://www.rwood.com/Articles/Tasty_...ternatives.htm
(I put in a google search of sprouted wheat gluten, and these were some of the first listed. You might try other words)

It is my opinion that due to the fact that we are attempting to eliminate a very serious symptom, that to be 100% wheat free would be the ideal. I personally would give it a good six months, make notes of the results, and then add back in the sprouted wheat product if you want to challenge it.

However, once again it might be difficult to follow the results if you are not sticking to the diet in other areas. It can take a few months for reactions to show up in some people.

It isn't clear if the gluten-which is one of the main proteins in the wheat, is broken down while sprouting or not. So it's difficult to tell if the sprouted wheat is safe, especially if the seeds are used in the bread making. You might try a google search on sprouts and gluten content. I just did a search and came to the site linked below. Looks like it wouldn't be gluten free. By law, they should label their bread as gluten free if it is GF. I would check with whoever makes it.
