| "Gluten-free" on a food label should mean completely gluten-free. Otherwise, it should indicate "mostly gluten free" or something equilivent.
I currently find gluten free foods by trial and error, along with some common sense and doctors advice.
Almost none, unless I go to the health food store and pay outragous prices.
"Gluten free" on a package greatly influences my decision to buy. It tells me right up front so I don't have to worry about the ingredients of the ingredients or names I don't recognize.
A two or more level definition of gluten-free would be helpful as long as it was very clear which products are totally gluten free.
