GENERAL
Gluten Free should mean safe food purchase, I can only eat gluten free foods safely and not get sick. It means no wheat or gluten at all is in the food.

I have to read eveything. It takes forever to shop and most foods are not marked clearly. Gluten free should be big and bold on label.

Few few foods are marked correctly. Even trace amount can make you sick. Things like modified food starch contains gluten. I have to go to expensive health food stores to get gluten free stuff.

Only things that say gluten free are really safe and the only on3es I can buy and be sure.
