Are peanuts gluten free?
Peanuts are naturally gluten free as well as nutrient dense so they are a great addition to any gluten-free recipe. Additionally, there is no gluten in peanut butter, peanut oil, peanut flour or even roasted or boiled peanuts.
Gluten is a type of protein found in wheat, barley, rye, and sometimes oats that can cause health issues in people with gluten intolerance, wheat allergy, or celiac disease. (3)
For those who have celiac disease the following ingredients need to be avoided as the gluten protein is found in them.
• Wheat, rye and barley, and is in most breads, pastas, baked goods, cereals, crackers, sauces and gravies, other grains and processed
foods, and some additives and seasonings.
• Wheat derivatives, which includes (but is not limited to) wheat berries, durum, emmer, semolina, spelt, farina, farro and graham.
• Malt, found in foods like malt vinegar and malted milkshakes, and Brewer’s Yeast, found in bread and beer, should be avoided.
