How are the straws processed?
Holy City Straw is committed to the environment. It has ingeniously used the typical agricultural plant waste (the cut wheat stem) into a straw that is processed free from any chemicals or contaminants.
The wheat straws are washed three times using (UV) high-temperature sterilization/saltwater disinfection methods for the removal of dirt and impurities.
Then they are baked to perfection for durability.

How can this be gluten-free if it is made from wheat?
Holy City Wheat Straw comes from plant stem which is made of plant cells. Gluten is held within the seed plant.
Therefore, the trace of gluten in the straw is minuscule.
All the wheat stems are tested by Great Plains Analytical Laboratory and register a gluten allergen reading of less than 2.5 ppm. This is significantly lower than the standard set by Gluten Free Organization of less than 10 ppm to be classified as gluten-free.
Although it is not required to meet FDA requirements for gluten-free status since the straws are not meant for consumption, the Holy City Straws comply with the 2 FDA conditions:
contains less than 20 parts per million (ppm) of gluten
any avoidable gluten
