GENERAL
Gluten should be defined on labels as anything that originated from wheat, barley, oats and rye, even the modified food starches and everything else should be identified. I spend too much time searching for ingredients on lables. Maybe 10% of food is labeled with gluten. I depend on labels to keep me from suffering from the symptoms of celiac disease. It is important that we know it comes from a gluten free environment and that the food is not contaminated.
