Hi all,
I thought I remember reading that red 40 lake had gluten as wel as some yellow food colorings.
Does any one have a list of food colorings we should avoid?
Thanks,
Mike.

Do you have the forbidden list of foods and ingredients from this site? That would definitely help you as far as your question goes.

I have some gluten free (on the label it says gluten free) gummy worms with it in there, so I think it's okay, if however it's not, that could really explain my mystery glutening.

Thanks.

Husband has Celiac Disease and
Husband misdiagnosed for 27 yrs -
The misdiagnosis was: IBS or colitis
Mis-diagnosed from 1977 to 2003 by various gastros including one of the largest,
most prestigious medical groups in northern NJ which constantly advertises themselves as
being the "best." This GI told him it was "all in his head."
Serious Depressive state ensued
Finally Diagnosed with celiac disease in 2003
Other food sensitivities: almost all fruits, vegetables, spices, eggs, nuts, yeast, fried foods, roughage, soy.
Needs to gain back at least 25 lbs. of the 40 lbs pounds he lost - lost a great amout of body fat and muscle
Developed neuropathy in 2005
Now has lymphadema 2006
It is my opinion that his subsequent disorders could have been avoided had he been diagnosed sooner by any of the dozen or so doctors he saw between 1977 to 2003

The only thing I could think of was some of the creamier food colorings, found in cake decorating stores that MIGHT containg gluten as a thickener, but I haven't verified that, and I use the standard food coloring found in the grocery store. As far as colors already added to products, I am not aware of any containing gluten.

I read an article that was from a Celiac person's perspective on food additives. They mentioned a yellow food coloring had made them sick (in a yellow and blue make green colored food situation) and verified it was gluten from the label on the yellow food color.
I personally have not found gluten in any food color.
