Etymology alert! Glutino wants you to know the origin of the word ‘gluten’


Glutino box gets into the Latin root word of "gluten"!

The Parmesan & Garlic flavor, to be exact, contains this bit of insight:

“Gluten comes from the Latin word for ‘glue’. So think of yourself as eating glue-free.”

My intestines feel better just thinking about gluten-free foods.

I also feel better thinking about a smart use of etymology on product packaging.

On the other hand, having scanned the entire text of the Glutino box, I found no etymological attention was given to an ingredient with a fancy name: “disodium phosphate.” Maybe because that would require a lengthy scientific paper.
