Although quinoa and amaranth contain no gluten, I read in a book I saw at the bookstore recently that they are sometimes processed alongside gluten grains and may not be safe unless labeled gluten free. Has anyone had a reaction to either of those grains?

I've never had a problem with either of them but usually only buy ones marked gluten free.
The exception is Melissas quinoa but I dont use the package of spices that comes with it.

Ancient Harvest Quinoa is grown in gluten free areas and processed in a quinoa only facility.

I agree with earlier post that Ancient Harvert should be clean. Here is the response I received when I inquired a couple weeks ago.

Hi Lenny, 

Our Quinoa is grown in Bolivia where no gluten crops are grown. We only package quinoa in the cleaning and packaging facilities in Bolivia so no cross contamination with gluten is possible. 

Our Quinoa Flakes are also made in a completely gluten free facility as is our corn/quinoa pasta and our quinoa flour. 

Best regards,
