GENERAL
It is important to me as a consumer to know up front if the products I am buying are gluten-free. It is not simply enough to say wheat-free on the package as there are other sources of gluten that are harmful to Celiacs like myself. I believe that a gluten-free notice on all gluten-free food products would make shopping and cooking easier. As Celiac Disease is a growing diagnosis in the medical world, I think the country as a whole should be making an effort to help CD patients find the products they can and can't have without question of hidden glutens to worry about.
Thank you,
S. Thienel
