GENERAL
GENERAL
1)No gluten should be in foods labeled Gluten-free.
2)I read labels,then contact companies. Approximately 1 hour monthly is spent identifying gluten-free foods. Products change ingredients, you can't expect a product to be GF each time you buy. You have to check it each time.
3)I'd guess 10% are currently marked GF those are mainly specialty foods - companies targeting celiacs and others looking for GF foods
4)I definately purchase foods marked GF over nonlabeled GF when ingredients are the same.
5) I would go for the levels of gluten-free labeling.
