Hello. I'm making gluten free cookies for my friend's lacrosse team where at least two girls have gluten allergies. I have Stop n Shop brand canola oil which says it may contain wheat. It is related to food product isa and I have to know if it is safe to use. Thank you.

if it says it may contain wheat, then your finished product may contain wheat.  even a little bit will make a celiac sick.

To follow that up - please be careful of your cookie sheets, mixer, etc.  Use parchment paper on the cookie sheets, make sure the mixer is extremely clean, don't use your sugar if you may have used a measuring cup in flour first at some point, etc.


To be honest, I don't eat foods made by someone I don't know well.  I think it is nice that you want to try to make gluten-free cookies.  You need to be very careful of any accidental gluten.

Unfortunately you will have to get another brand of canola oil.  However, before you put more money into what you are doing, like Karen said, the girls still may not be able to eat them if they are made in your kitchen and on/with implements that have already come into contact with gluten.  If you have a gluten free bakery in your local area, you may be able to pick them up something there.  If you get them each a fancy cupcake and everyone else gets a smaller cookie they won't feel bad, and that way you can guarantee it is safe for them to eat.  Some grocery stores also have gluten-free baked goods in the frozen section- you can see if they have anything and then also buy the gluten filled counterpart for the rest of the team so they aren't having anything incredibly different.


If you know the girls well enough, it is also fun to have a baking party, but do it at their house where everything is gluten-free and they can know it is safe.  Feel free to ask us any more questions! :)  I think it is great you are trying to include everyone.

I don't eat foods I don't prepare, only for reasons stated up above. I know your heart is in the right place, but if they are Celiac they may not eat them. They don't know if they will be CC'd .
