I think the biggest struggle for anyone who is diagnosed as being allergic to anything, is figuring out what is safe to eat, especially as it relates to Gluten. My husband was diagnosed just over 10 years ago now. There are far more products out there that are Gluten Free. You can't just rely on the Ingredient List of a product because of cross contamination. Gluten Proteins are sticky and if machinery is not cleaned properly, you now have gluten on any products packaged after a "gluten containing" item is processed. Some people say they are not that sensitive; I believe they have not totally eliminated gluten yet as once you do, I guarantee you, you will be that sensitive. Confirm everything is gluten free either by the company's label saying "gluten free" or you doing your own research by emailing companies through their website. Here is just A FEW of the items that shocked me, tea, soya sauce, ketchup, mayonnaise, mustard, relish, salad dressing, nuts, rice, liquor (not just beer), juice, soy milk, candy. Before you buy anything ensure you have confirmed it is gluten free.
