Been totally gluten free for 16 months. Seems a long time but I am learning every day. The latest is hp brown sauce. Just been to Cyprus and on their jars of hp brown sauce it states that it contains gluten. Checked mine when I got home and does not state this only that it contains rye and malt. I'm only just familiarising myself with other gluten products and realised just before going away that coka cola contains malt barley. I had not had for years as its a drink I don't really like but had an inch in the bottom of a glass to quench thirst and had niggly pain for 2/3 days afterwards. Not diagnosed ceoliac but now have diagnosis in writing of gluten intolerance. Have read the up with ceoliac UK and says that very similar to ceoliac symptoms but does not effect the gut and can absorb vits etc. my body does not absorb B12. Foliate or vit D and my consultant has referred me for dexa. He has accepted that I can't eat gluten and given me the next best thing to a diagnosis but following me up as ceoliac. Very happy with this now. But still learning. Put this on just to help new people on here diagnosed or not
