GENERAL
I have celiac disease and I don't purchase foods that are not clearly labeled "gluten free." I really don't have the time or patience to read every label on each product I buy. I would like the standard for the definition of "gluten free" to be absolutely no gluten. I react very strongly to even the least amount of gluten and I'm tired of being sick. I would dearly love to eat a larger variety of food than I currently do but it is so difficult to interpret the labels.
