How can I be sure a product is gluten free?

Don't Be Fooled

If you're new to the world of gluten free food you've probably realized what a chore it can be to differentiate between foods containing gluten and ones without it. You have to be able to determine which foods are safe for consumption and this can be difficult, as a result of current labeling laws. Gluten can easily be disguised in and is often referred to on labels by such names as:

  • Modified food starch
  • Spices
  • Natural flavorings
  • Vinegar,
  • Malt

It's a smart idea to personally call the manufacturer to verify that a product is indeed gluten free. Most manufacturers will give up this information.

*Don't be fooled, gluten does not only surface in items like pasta, bread, and cereal; it can also be discovered in dairy products, condiments, lunch meats, juices, and many types of candy.
