Q.Winter rye and gluten free gardens

Zone Kamloops BC | Anonymous added on August 31, 2020 | Answered

I am considering using green manure crops for the first time and winter rye is one that is recommended. However, we are a gluten free (celiac) family. Would the use of the rye cause problems with vegetables grown in the garden afterwards, or is the composting process efficient in eliminating any issue?

According to my research, annual ryegrass is different from the grain, rye, also called cereal rye. It's the grain that should be avoided. So make sure you get the right seed.
But your doctor might have more insight on this.
