| 1. Gluten free should mean less than 50 ppm gluten. This value is widely accepted.
2. I do several different things to identify foods without gluten. Call manufacturers, read labels and look for foods that are labeled gluten free. The new labeling for the top allergens is a big improvement, but they do not list oats, rye and barley which must still be identified separately.
3. I am not able to purchase ?gluten free? labeled foods for more than 10% of the time.
4. If gluten free is printed on the label, I will always purchase that food over one that is not labeled, 100%.
