GENERAL
I have celiac. I would like to see labels be definitive when they read NO GLUTEN, it should mean NONE.I would accept a level description such as A being NO GLUTEN and B being trace amounts. Small amounts of gluten to a celiac are not acceptable. That is equivelant to telling someone with a peanut allergy that they can have "small" amounts of peanuts. It can't happen.
