Huskyfan,

There is some uncertainty about the gluten-free status of millet. On the one hand, it is closely enough related to corn that you wouldn't expect it to contain gluten, but on the other hand, a usually-reliably-informed individual at another website just posted something that placed millet in the off-limits category. I have had problems with it in the past, but then, I also had trouble with rice until I bought a new pot to replace the one that had barley scum plastered all over it! I haven't tried millet since then, so I can't tell you whether it is still a problem for me. If you want to test millet/millet flour yourself, I recommend buying some from a source that uses dedicated gluten-free lines, like Bob's Red Mill. Otherwise, you can't be sure any problems don't result from cross-contamination!

I hope this helps, and I hope you can tolerate millet!

Bob's Red Mill tests their millet flour to be gluten-free with the ELISA test, so I consider it to be gluten-free. Obviously, you've got to see how you respond to it personally.
