To answer this question, we need to clarify another question: what is gluten. Gluten is protein composite found in wheat and related grains, including barley and rye. (Wikipedia) First, gluten is a protein. Second, gluten is mainly found in wheat and related grains. As we mentioned before, Sulfamic Acidis a water-soluble compound which is significantly different from protein. Raw materials used in manufacturing of Sulfamic Acid are ther synthesized chemical ingredients; Sulfamic Acid barely includes gluten impurity. So, Sulfamic Acid is gluten free.
Sulfamic Acid is widely used in industry to provide strong cleaning agent to for descaling include home coffee and espresso equipment and in denture cleaners. Sulfamic Acid is usually used in processed food rather than daily recipe.
Celiac disease: Celiac disease is an autoimmune disease that attacks the small intestine due to the presence of gluten, for which a gluten-free diet is the only medically-accepted treatment. In 2009 research showed between 0.5 and 1.0 percent of people in the US and UK are sensitive to gluten due to celiac disease. So people with Celiac disease have to stick to gluten free diet to avoid unexpected side effect caused by consumption of gluten.
Non-celiac gluten sensitivity: Some people may be sensitive to gluten but do not have celiac disease and feel better on a diet with less gluten. However, there are no specific symptoms confirmed. Non-celiac gluten sensitivity also drives more people to gluten free diet when people believe that they feel better when eating gluten free.As a top supplier of food ingredients, Foodchem has been supplying gluten free Sulfamic Acid for over 10 years.
