GENERAL
Clearly mark "Gluten Free" to ensure safe food purchase. My daughter gets ill with the smallest amount of gluten.

Hours are spent reading labels, looking for the words "Gluten Free".

Very few foods at regular stores are clearly marked. Even some that appear safe are actually cross-contaminated.

I feel safer when "Gluten Free" is clearly written on a food label. I purchase ones that say "gluten free"
