A few vapers have raised the issue of gluten in e-juice, especially in bakery-inspired vapes or in flavored e-cig liquids that used extracts from wheat and other grains. These vapers have celiac, which narrows down their options for e-juice flavors. While inhalation of gluten isn't as dangerous as drinking or eating it, there's still a small chance that a celiac will be exposed to a tiny amount of gluten in e-juice flavorings. Vapers with non-celiac gluten sensitivity, however, don't have anything to worry about.
Chemical Ingredients in E-juice Celiacs Should Avoid
It goes without saying that e-liquids with extracts of wheat, rye, barley, and other grains are the first to be thrown away. Next, immediately reject those e-juices that contain cow's milk, sour cream, and whipped cream. Dairy products have lactose, which is a well-known dietary trigger for gastrointestinal problems. It's also important that you avoid all forms of soy in your juice because it's one of the foods most likely to cause allergic reactions.
After you have eliminated lactose and soy in your e-juice selection, start looking for flavored liquids that don't have FODMAPs or fermentable, poorly absorbed short-chain carbohydrates, such as fructose and sugar alcohols like sorbitol and xylitol.

If you're a celiac or you have non-celiac gluten sensitivity, start a casual conversation with someone who's a celiac and who's been vaping for a long time. Learn all you can about vaping while managing your gastrointestinal illness.
Most importantly, learn to make your own e-juice, so you can mix and match your gluten-free ingredients in every recipe.
