Tapioca is gluten-free. It is safe for celiacs.

okay I am awake now..... this is in most flours ... and stuff that we are using to combat the wheat intolerance... But I know some folks are allergic to it ... But I guess I am going to have to see.

But are most folks who are not Celiac but wheat intolerant able to eat it or is this a who knows ans you have to see ... just wondering.

thanks Psawyer... I was in a panick....... stuff hasnt slipped by me in a while .... but this one did. I guess they changed something or just have a similiar lable for a slightly differnt product... but I have ingrained in my head from this web site to allways read ingredients.... I guess better at the grocery store .. and not after you have fed your baby the product.

thanks for your speedy response.

tapioca, iirc, is a root, not even a grain, and is definitely unrelated to wheat and safe for celiacs. there are a few people who do not handle tapioca well, but that's the exception rather than the rule. (heh, so are all of us, though. :) )
