GENERAL
In my opinion, gluten free on a label should mean just that. Zero tolerance.
If I cannot identify a product as gluten free, I call the company, and if still not satisfied, because of outside sources, I avoid the product altogether. It is a rare thing to come across a product that states it is glutenfree. I still double check to make certain it is.Two or more definitions would,in my opinion, confuse newly diagnosed celiacs.no amount can be tolerated by our young celiac, so, therefore, we would avoid items marked as only "trace amounts", or "small amounts"
