GENERAL
More producers need to label their products as gluten free. My family spends hours each week at the grocery store while trying to read ingredints on food labels. This is very time consuming. My wife has recently found out she has Celiac Disorder. It is depressing spending so much time reading labels that really do not make much sense. The issue of giving foods an A, B, C level is not going to apply to the people that have Celiac.
