GENERAL
My young granddaughter was recently diagnosed with celiac disease. It is very difficult to tell what packaged foods and skin products contain gluten. I spend a lot of time reading labels, and still end up not buying a large number of products simply because I can't tell if it is gluten free or not.

Having labels clearly state whether or not they are gluten free would be a great help to me and my daughter. I'm sure all patients with celiac disease would agree with me.
