GENERAL
I am extremely in favor of labelling food with a Gluten Free label. Celiac Disease is something there is no "pill" or cure for other than modifying our menu and consumption of food. Many restaurants and grocers have no clue what this is or how it can debilitate your body and cripple your lifestyle. By adding this to products (either voluntarily or mandated), it will inadvertently raise awareness. It could also potentially reach more people who actually have the disease and are not aware.
