May not: If you are highly allergic to grass pollen, you may end up with a strongly positive reaction to wheat which may or may not cause you any problem people on a gluten-free diet is mostly on a wheat-free diet but you should have a food challenge test at your allergist to ascertain that this is your problem because wheat-free products are not inexpensive and avoidance is not that easy.
