| Please see that gluten free foods are labeled and labeled correctly.
Gluten free should mean the ingredients in the product contain no gluten nor have they been contaminated by gluten.
I spend a great deal of time trying to determine whether food is gluten free or not. Too many ingredients are a source of hidden gluten and many times it is impossible to be certain the product is gluten free.
I would say 5-10% of products are labeled gluten free.....and 10% is probably quoting too high a percentage.
If a product is labeled gluten free and perhaps it costs more than the same product next to it....which does not clearly indicate whether gluten is present, without a doubt I buy the gluten free product.
