Since I have been diagnoised with Celiac Disease I have spent double the amount of time in the grocery store reading labels making sure what I am about to purchase is totally gluten free. This is a task that is very difficult, because some of the products may be gluten free, but the product was processed in a machine that previously had something processed with glutens. It would make it much easier to go to the grocery store and see a label that says "Gluten Free" on it that way I can get my grocery shopping done in a good time frame and also know that if I eat that product it won't make me sick.
