gumbo roux and gluten

Tom Meg | Dec 15, 2005 08:31 AM

Any insights, educated guesses, etc. on whether or not a dark roux (ie flour cooked in fat until it's very dark brown) still contains gluten and would therefore potentially cause problems for eaters with wheat allergies? I had heard that prolonged and intense exposure to heat destroy's the flour's proteins, but can't find any info that specifically addresses dark roux.
