GENERAL
As someone who must follow a gluten-free diet, I can't tell you how difficult it is to shop or go out to a restaurant. Some companies have made an effort to label their products as gluten-free. I tend to purchase those products over the non-labeled ones. Some food, however, are not labeled or the labels are not clear and I have no idea if they contain gluten or not. Clear and consistent warning ingredient labels are a matter or life and health for me.
