Mushroom spores are grown on grains, usually rye. However, they can also be grown on wheat or a combination of grains. This means that they contain a trace amount of gluten.
Majority gluten-free dieters do not react to mushrooms. However, the small percentage of individuals who are highly intolerant to gluten, may react.
Washing mushrooms does not help remove the gluten. The gluten grows inside the mushrooms and cannot be removed. It is similar to those with a high intolerance to mold. You wouldn’t serve them anything that has had mold on it.
