Ihave celiac sprue. This means I had internal damage from gluten food sources. Gluten free must mean just that--free of gluten. My grocery shopping time takes much longer than it should! When I see those words, I pick out the item and go! Nearly all packaged foods can contain gluten, so I depend on the more expensive health food store foods that say Gluten Free! If an item says gluten free I would buy it. WE all have busy lives and it would be a blessing to not have to read and guess what a label says! Thank you, Gayle Cloud 316 788 2531. gayleac1@wmconnect.com
