GENERAL
My son and I have Celiac disease. My son who is still growing and developing reacts to even the slightest amount of gluten in his food. Please make sure that "Gluten free" means 0% gluten in our foods and supplements.

I am also very ill from celiac disease and react to even the slightest amount with full autoimmune symtoms that are debilitating and severe. If the FDA is taking responsibility for food labeling laws, please require all foods containing any percentage of gluten to be labeled as containing gluten for our safety. Thank you.
