  • 1) If this ingredient is made in North America it is likely to be gluten-free.
  • 4) Can utilize a gluten-containing grain or by-product in the manufacturing process, or as an ingredient.
  • 5) Most celiac organizations in the USA and Canada do not believe that wheat starch is safe for celiacs. In Europe, however, Codex Alimentarius Quality wheat starch is considered acceptable in the celiac diet by most doctors and celiac organizations. This is a higher quality of wheat starch than is generally available in the USA or Canada.

I've not been 'diagnosed' with celiac, but do have an issue with a LOT of foods; wheat and grains being the worst for my health. I have, over the past 6 years or so, learned to not buy anything pre-made or processed. I make my own chocolate toppings, cocoa, and so on. When I come across articles like this, I am thankful I don't buy processed, prepackaged food (except vanilla ice cream, natural only). It sure takes longer to cook my own food from scratch, but my mental, emotional and physical health, as well as my relationships with my husband and kids, is so much better.

Thank you for the information; keep up the good work.

Blessings

I was recently, and accidentally, told it's probable that I have asymptomatic celiac disease. With that heads up I now think my 22 month old has it. I was going crazy trying to figure out why she constantly has diarrhea. I'm trying a gluten-free diet and the results are fabulous. Firm stools for almost one week! This list will really assist me in my efforts to help my little girl. Thanks!

This is so helpful to keep on hand - I just wish there was an easier way to know about the items that may or may not contain gluten - which the Scott Adams site can't do nothing about - it's the manufacture - take for instance albacore tuna has vegetable oil; Well I had to contact bumble bee, Starkist... to find out if the veggie oil was gluten-free - which by the way is gluten-free!- Scott Adams thanks for this great site laa : )

Thank you for this list. The hardest part has been recognizing the hidden gluten. I have recently learned that I am gluten-sensitive. It looks like it runs in both sides of my family. It turns out the problems my mom AND my dad have had for years are caused by gluten-sensitivity. My mom was diagnosed with lupus in '84 and now we think it was celiac disease all this time. My dad is nearly paralyzed due to peripheral neuropathy which started over 10 years ago. They are both going gluten-free and are finding relief for the first time in years. I can't tell you how good it feels to find hope that my dad can walk again. Thanks again for the resources on this website!

I have recently found out on my own that I have allergies to dairy gluten and wheat. I tried a little English muffin just to test it and I felt terrible. the other night I tried a few semi sweet chocolate chips and cream of tomato soup and once again I felt terrible. I test myself on occasion but no more testing I have realized no more ice cream yogurts and the like sucks but I would rather do without than feel as bad as I have been feeling while eating foods with these ingredients in them. This list is extremely helpful. Takes me ages to shop now but thats ok.

Gluten-Free labeling on all products that are truly gluten-free, which aren't a lot. I have been in denial since my gluten, wheat, soy, eggs, dairy sensitivity tests results came back last fall. Now my glucose is rising, so I have to buckle down and get used to the changes.

Great article. For a couple years now, I was constantly getting this burningbloating feeling in my stomach and I had no idea where it was coming from. I went to the Doctor and after some tests, he told me it was stress related. I do tend to get stressed but I knew this was something more. 2 months ago I started to figure that I would only get this pain after I ate certain foods, like pasta, pizza (the crust), almost anything with breading too. I looked this up online and found that this is a condition. So I cut out all those foods and I noticed that this pain went down a lot! I couldn't believe it!

I have been diagnosed with Dermatitis Herpetiformis and was told I had to be on a gluten free diet. This has been a very hard thing to deal with. One of the first things I was given was the Scott Adams safe gluten free food list. I am so glad I have it. It has helped so much. Having this Dermatitis Herpetiformis disease, my skin on my arms and knees broke out in a terrible rash so painful that it was unbearable. So I have to also take a pill called Dapson to help deal with the rash. The pill is very strong and has been causing havoc with my red blood cells. I have to have a blood test weekly to determine how much of the medication I need, As soon as I can, after being gluten free and rash free, I will be able to stop the pill, but have to stay on the gluten free diet. Thank you for your web site and the valuable information.

I have lived gluten free for 21 months. The improvement in my health was immediate but there have been many set backs. I have probably been celiac for 20-30 years. So I can't expect to be totally well over night. Patience is needed here. Your list is FABULOUS. Plan to share it at our Celiac Meeting tonight.

Seeing this list today has answered some very important questions for me. I was going by the 'safe' list only when grocery shopping. This 'unsafe' list shows ingredients that I had no idea could contain gluten. This explains why my symptoms returned 2 1/2 months ago. I have been working out of town and do not have access to my gluten free kitchen supplies. I was diagnosed 4 1/2 years ago and have been almost anal about remaining gluten-free so I was so surprised when my symptoms returned. It really is a life long lifestyle change. Thank you so much for this list.

This site is very helpful and helped me to recognize the foods with have hidden gluten in them. Some things like soy sauce and soup mixes which I liked to use to make soups that are easily digested. I probably wouldn't have know this if I didn't find this list

In Australia we have a book complete with every ingredient listed form a to z. It lists safe items like rice, and states does not contain gluten. It lists caramel color 150a,b,c,d and states may contain residual gluten as derived form a gluten containing grain. It list the items which are safe although derived form a gluten containing grain it contains no residual gluten and last it lists the obvious wheat rye barley and oats contains gluten. This pocket book is update every year I believe. Since being diagnosed this is the most important thing I carry everywhere with me and although its been 8 years now, you never know when it will come in handy. Lauren.

Thank you! Even Bette Hagman doesn't have such a comprehensive list.

The list is so long. It makes me want to bypass processed foods altogether. I'm sure others share the frustration of thinking 'what CAN I eat anymore?' I already can't eat any dairy, and now I know I can't eat gluten either has left me feeling betrayed...by the government's push for the 4 food groups since I was a kid and by my own body. Celiac sucks. I wish the rest of the world would wake up to this condition and give us all a break with reliable 'contains gluten' kind of labeling on all food products.

I am Gluten and Lactose Intolerant. I just came from Borders Books, where I found a very useful Gluten Free Cookbook, which had a very extensive and useful 'gluten ingredient list'.

I declined to buy the book however, as it really was too expensive. I figured I'd go online and try to find a similar list to the one in the book. Well, I Gogled it, and Wow! I came up with your list. Thank you so much, I'll print out the list now, and use it as my Gluten Free Bible.

Can't Thank you enough.

I am gluten and lactose intolerant and it really is hard to figure out what you can and can not eat. This list is great and free. It is hard enough to afford to eat gluten free without having to buy books for information.

Thank you so much for this list! I was recently diagnosed after years of declining health.

Going Gluten-Free has involved a huge learning curve for me, and more than once I've found myself getting frustrated in the grocery store as I try to figure out what I can/can't eat. I'm printing off this list of yours and laminating it for use when grocery shopping. Thank you!

This is awesome! Thanks for posting this. I am a new to the gluten-free world and am a little overwhelmed with the information. This is a great list to print out and take with me to the stores...easy to compare.

This is a great site. I'm 15 years old and I have celiac! It is so hard to go to friends' houses and explain my disease, and school is hard to, because all school lunches contain gluten. I'm glad to know I'm not the only kid with celiac.

Also, going gluten free helped my acne...

I have been sick all of my life, and have had so many doctors tell me it was all in my head! As if I was so sick I couldn't even think straight! I was diagnosed with a wheat allergy in my 20's, given allergy shots, and kept going into anaphylactic shock. Now at 53, I've finally been diagnosed with celiac disease, but I believe now that I've had this all my life. I learned that this disease is the reason I had 7 miscarriages and why my teeth (which I have taken immaculate care of) turned bright yellow in my twenties. I could eat as much as 4 large men, yet I was skinny as a beanpole - people thought I must have a wonderful metabolism and were so jealous. I was starving all the time, and I could never get enough to eat. I went to doctor, after doctor, after doctor, and had them scratch their heads (literally) in puzzlement over my myriad of symptoms, but not one gave me a celiac test until two weeks ago. They would tell me that my problem must be psychiatric, because they couldn't see how anything was wrong! I didn't have skin rashes, nothing showed outwardly. I was slender (who wouldn't love that?) - so why was I complaining? How is it that these doctors managed to get through medical school? By the time I was diagnosed, I was having to go to the hospital on a weekly basis before one brilliant doctor - who happens to have immigrated to the USA from Brazil - figured out what was wrong with me! Not a single U.S.-trained doctor was a bit of help! So if there are other patients out there like myself, who have to wait to get a Brazilian-trained doctor to diagnose them, then my heart goes out to them! Anyway, this website is now in my 'Favorites' list, and I thank God that there is something out there that is truly helpful. There is a lot of needless suffering out there because of ignorant medical personnel, and because of the food industry as well. My cupboards are bare now because this website has shown me that everything I had stocked up on is loaded with gluten! But THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU! You are part of the solution!

It took a foot specialist to figure out I was celiac! Over the past 31 years (and I am only 48) I have been to numerous doctors that told me I had ulcers and IBD, Epstein-Barr (now known as chronic fatigue syndrome), rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, fibromyalgia, etc. About two years ago, my regular physician found I had a low functioning thyroid and started treatment, and a year later I was placed on anti-depressants. After starting a new job, my feet and hands swelled so badly that I couldn't walk or close my fists. My podiatrist immediately placed me on B12 supplements to help my very irritated nerves and then diagnosed me as celiac. Fortunately, he was very familiar with the disease as he has several siblings with it.

I have looked all over the internet for a listing of no-no foods, and this one is the best. I actually started my new diet only yesterday and look forward to feeling a whole lot better. I honestly don't think it will be that difficult to follow, but I also have the advantage if living in a farm community where I have access to the freshest of everything and have done my own canning and preserving for many years anyhow. This just gives me the incentive to do more of it!

And, I can't imagine that this will be at all bad for my diabetic husband either!

For 30 years I have suffered on and off, mostly on, from skipped heartbeats (extra-systoles) - a lot of them, and generally feeling lousy a lot of the time. Dozens of doctor consultations yielded zip over the years. Three months ago, based on a story from another lady who had suffered from gluten sensitivity, my wife suggested I try going gluten free. I did and bingo! The symptoms disappeared. When I started to go gluten free I asked my gastro-intestinal specialist doctor to check me for celiac disease. All the tests came back negative, but I am morally certain they were false negatives. I am feeling 100% better but wondering what to do next. I appreciate this website very much particularly since few doctors (none in my experience to date) seem to know or care about the gluten problem.
