Are Eggs Gluten Free

Yes, for everyone but make me very sick. It has to do with the grain the chicken is fed. Since it doesnt state which grain they are fed I avoid them.

Eggs in their shells should be close to perfectly gluten-free, although some very sensitive people with celiac disease and gluten sensitivity have reported problems with eggs from chickens fed a heavy diet of gluten grains.

For most of us, any problems with eggs most likely stem from one of two places: gluten cross-contamination when the eggs are cooked, or from a sensitivity to the eggs themselves (eggs are one of the top eight allergens in the U.S., so it's not unusual for someone to suffer from sensitivities to both eggs and gluten).

If you're preparing your eggs in a gluten-free kitchen, you should be fine. But in a shared kitchen, you'll need to watch out for potential problems with shared cooking spaces, utensils and pans in order to keep your eggs safe. For more on this, see:
