30 processed foods that are usually gluten free
October 18, 2010Posted by on
This list is a bit tricky for a couple of reasons:
- These items usually do not have gluten in the ingredients. That does not mean they never do. You have to read labels.
- Even when an item does not have gluten in the ingredients, it can have cross contamination. People are on a gluten-free diet for different reasons. If you have celiac disease or for some other reason need to avoid cross contamination, some of these items may not be a good choice for you. Items that I believe run a high risk of cross contamination (like mainstream cereals) are not on this list at all. When reading labels, look for allergy statementsabout being produced in a facility that makes wheat products.
So here you have it. A list of processed foods that are likely to be gluten free.
