Is transglutaminase harmful if ingested by a person with celiac disease?

We ingest tissue transglutaminase practically every day when we eat animals since it’s a ubiquitous enzyme for many species. Transglutaminase is part of an immense repertoire of proteins that are mostly destroyed by cooking and are fully digested before being absorbed. It’s not harmful to those with celiac disease.
