I hate Gluten Cutter. I mean, I really, really detest everything about it.
If you haven’t heard of this ridiculous product, they claim it allows you to eat gluten and not suffer the consequences.
Does Gluten Cutter work? Now that’s funny.
I would explain how they say it is supposed to work, but it doesn’t really matter does it? Their overall message is the same:
“Eating gluten free is SO DIFFICULT AND INCONVENIENT. Take our pill and you can get your life back”.
The headlines on their home page scream it:
“Take the guilt out of gluten.”
“Because it can be tough to resist.”
“Enjoy the foods you love.”
You know what the headline should read:
“LISTEN TO YOUR BODY AND DON’T TRUST ANYONE WHO SAYS DIFFERENTLY.”
Now, the million dollar question is…are they promoting it for people with celiac disease?
The answer is…yes, but perhaps not directly; just like any other scammy company trying not to get sued.
On their FAQ page, there is the following beauty:
Q: Is Gluten Cutter intended for those with Celiac Disease?
A: It is recommended that those with Celiac Disease first consult with a doctor prior to using Gluten Cutter.
Dude Note – July 2021: Thankfully, their messaging has changed a bit. While pills like this still market to our weakness (“Go ahead. Eat the bread, not the salad.”), they sometimes admit it’s not for those with celiac disease. Although Celiac.com still advertises one of these pills. Don’t get me started.
The answer should be a simple NO. But then that would dig into their profits now wouldn’t it.
There is a “success story” from Susan on their site that promotes it for those with celiac: “I have celiac disease. When I eat out I no longer worry if I’m going to get sick because restaurants aren’t always honest when they say “gluten free”.
Susan…you are the worst celiac ever.
Their Facebook page has a quote from someone who is a “full blow celiac” and takes the pill every day. This angers me to no end.
And if you look for reviews online, there are many written by celiacs who put their hopes in a pill. Thankfully, most claim the products is absolute garbage.
Here’s the deal folks…they are profiting on your weakness; on your gullibility; on your stupidity. They are telling you that going gluten free is too hard; it’s inconvenient; you’re giving up too many great foods. Just take our pill and all of of your worries go away.
It is such a load of crap.
Gluten Cutter is not backed by the FDA. It’s not backed my the medical community. It’s not backed by one single celiac expert.
Yet somehow, they are in every single retail store out there, they have almost 100,000 followers on Facebook (yet only 273 Twitter follows…ok then) and by the looks of it, they’re doing pretty well for themselves. They are the tobacco company of the gluten free industry. They’re making money off lies and deceit.
Folks…you have celiac disease or NCGS. Your body cannot process gluten. Period. But this is not a death sentence. It’s a life sentence. You know exactly what is harming your body. Don’t listen to these scammers. Instead, listen to the experts, such as Dr. Stefano Guandalini, founder and medical director of the University of Chicago Celiac Disease Center. The question posed to him was:
Do supplements like Glutenase, Gluten Cutter or Digest Gluten Plus that are currently on the market help people with celiac disease digest gluten, or protect against cross-contamination?
His answer says it all:
“It must be clearly stated that none – I repeat, none – of the currently commercially available products that claim to help detoxifying gluten by digesting it in the stomach before it reaches the small intestine can actually accomplish this. This is based on specific tests carried out in a reputable research laboratory that has checked these products and confirmed what we knew from the beginning: They are totally ineffective in reducing the fractions of gluten that are toxic for celiac patients.”
So who are you going to listen to? A company that is profiting off your weakness or someone who has dedicated his career to helping those inflicted with celiac.
Don’t support Gluten Cutter. Be part of the solution. Not part of the problem.
