Barbara's Answer:

If you are intolerant to wheat, it is possible that wheat grass will be a problem for you. However, there is a high likelihood that you will be able to tolerate wheat grass just fine. The best way to find out is to test yourself.

Wheat and wheat grass are related but have very different properties. Wheat, of course, is a grain. When that grain is ground, it becomes flour that is used in many foods, especially in baked goods. Many people find this form of wheat problematic either because they react against gluten or some other constituent.

Many of the components of wheat flour or wheat in its grain form are absent in wheat grass. This means that many people who react poorly to wheat flour or wheat grain do just fine with wheat grass.

Wheat grass comes from wheat that has been allowed to sprout and grow. It is usually sold either as fresh juice pressed from the grass or as a powder made from dehydrating this juice. Either way, wheat grass is chock full of vitamins, minerals and other good things.

Also remember that arthritis is a disease of acidity. Wheat flour and wheat in grain form make the body more acidic. Wheat grass, on the other hand, combats this acidity. (It is alkalizing.) Therefore, too much wheat in the form of flour or grain tends to make arthritis worse. As long as wheat grass is not a specific problem food for you, regular consumption of wheat grass tends to make arthritis better.
