GENERAL
I would encourage you to please, please include labeling of gluten in all food labels. It is a tedious and time consuming process to call all manufacturers before I can determine if it is safe for me to eat a particular product. Celiac disease is one of the most underdiagnosed and misdiagnosed diseases there is - it is estimated that one in 300 have it, and most do not know it, but more are being diagnosed all the time.
