I am sooo upset right now! I should have known better then to assume no wheat ingredients means gluten free. As I read the ingredients it said organic rolled oats and malt extract. I've also had the lemon Luna bar in the last few days and am wondering now if that was a mistake also. Live and learn and get sick I guess.

Well, let's just hope the rolled oats weren't contaminated, and the malt extract was from corn, not barley. ;) Seriously, don't assume you'll be glutened, think positive, but avoid those bars from now on. You live and learn, it takes a while to figure it all out.

I find it confusing too, I almost bought some wheat-free cookies today and then at the last minute remembered to read the label and saw they were not gluten free.

I think Ursula makes a good point, be optimistic.

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but the regular Clif bars are NOT gluten-free. Clif Nectar bars, however, are.

Well, atleast I can have the nectar bars :)
My symptoms so far have been mild. So hopefully this won't be too painful of a lesson. Does my count for gluten free days start all over now?
