How do I know if food is gluten-free?

A Answers (1)

  • If you're on a gluten-free diet, always be sure to check nutrition labels for gluten-containing ingredients and additives.

    Don't forget that ingredients in food products change frequently, so always check before you buy something. There are many additives and ingredients that are wheat, rye or barley-based.

    If something is labeled "wheat-free" it is not always "gluten-free." While the product may not contain wheat, it may still contain rye or barley.

    If you have any question about whether or not something contains gluten, call the manufacturer and ask directly.
