What is GluteGuard?

GluteGuard is an innovative enzyme supplement that helps to reduce the occurrence of symptoms caused by inadvertent gluten ingestion, in those who follow a gluten-free diet for medical reasons. GluteGuard uses the natural power of the caricain enzyme from the unripe skin of the papaya fruit (Carica Papaya). When taken before a gluten-free meal, GluteGuard enzymes are uniquely able to break down the small amounts of gluten before they interact with the intestinal lining , helping to reduce the occurrence of symptoms caused by inadvertent gluten ingestion.

How does GluteGuard work?

Take one (1) GluteGuard tablet immediately prior to eating a gluten-free meal, where you are concerned about the risk of hidden traces of gluten being present.

Taking the tablet before eating ensures that the enzymes are released just before your food reaches the small intestine, allowing the enzymes to begin breaking down the small amounts of gluten before they interact with the intestinal lining. In this way, GluteGuard helps to reduce the occurrence of symptoms caused by inadvertent gluten ingestion in many who follow a gluten-free diet for medical reasons.

Who can benefit from GluteGuard?

Read more About GluteGuard


GluteGuard is recommended for anyone that suffers symptoms from eating gluten and follows a gluten-free diet on medical advice. When you are concerned your gluten-free meal may have been contaminated with traces of gluten, GluteGuard protects against the symptoms of accidental gluten ingestion. GluteGuard is particularly useful when eating or dining out; sharing your home kitchen; picnics and barbecues; travelling or other instances when you cannot be certain about the preparation of your food.

GluteGuard is not recommended for use if you are allergic to natural rubber latex or papaya (paw paw). GluteGuard is not recommended during pregnancy or breastfeeding.

Where is GluteGuard manufactured?

GluteGuard is manufactured in Australia from local and imported ingredients.

Can GluteGuard replace my gluten-free diet?

We don’t recommend that anyone advised to follow a gluten free diet intentionally eats gluten-containing foods. Despite being careful, accidental gluten-contamination is still a very common concern for many. For peace of mind, use GluteGuard as an extra layer of support against inadvertent gluten ingestion in conjunction with a gluten-free diet.

How many GluteGuard tablets can I take in a day?

The recommended maximum daily dose is four (4) tablets in a single day. Only one tablet (whole) is required per meal.

Does GluteGuard build up in the body?

No, GluteGuard will not leave a build up of residue in your body. Every component of each GluteGuard tablet is digested by the body’s normal processes.

What types of foods does GluteGuard help to digest?

GluteGuard is formulated to reduce the unpleasant symptoms of accidental gluten ingestion, regardless of the source of the gluten. Gluten occurs naturally in wheat, barley, rye and other cereal grains. Gluten can also be found in products that contain ingredients based on these grains, and in products manufactured in an environment where gluten may be present. Hidden gluten may be found in many products including sauces, marinades, gravies, processed meats, vegetarian meat alternatives and spices.

Can GluteGuard tablets be crushed or split before taking?

Unfortunately, no. Doing so would significantly reduce GluteGuard’s effectiveness.

The tablets are coated in a special enteric coating, which ensures that GluteGuard’s active ingredient pass through the acidic environment of the stomach, quickly dissolving once the tablet reaches the small intestine. This ensures that the enzymes are released where they are needed to help minimise the occurrence of symptoms caused by consuming gluten accidentally.

Can I take GluteGuard while pregnant or breastfeeding?

GluteGuard is not recommended to be taken while pregnant or breastfeeding. While the ingredients are natural and considered safe, GluteGuard has not been clinically tested in a pregnant or breastfeeding cohort.

Can children take GluteGuard?

GluteGuard recommended for adults only. While the active ingredient in GluteGuard is natural and considered safe for children consumption, GluteGuard has only been studied in an adult population.

Additionally, because the tablets are unable to be split or crushed, they may be difficult for young children to take whole.
