Thanks for visiting our web site.

We understand how important it is for people who have been medically
diagnosed with gluten
sensitivity to have accurate information about foods to help plan their
meals and diets.
Therefore, it has been a long standing policy for all Kraft and Nabisco
products to list items that
contain gluten on the package ingredient statement. These items will be
listed using commonly
known terms such as Wheat, Barley, Oats or Rye. For other ingredients that
contain gluten, the
grain source will be declared in parenthesis after the ingredient name. For
example, if the
ingredient 'natural flavor' contains a gluten source, the label would read:
natural flavor (contains
rye) Other ingredients that contain gluten are: Triticale, Spelt, Kamut, Mir
or Farina (also known
as Far or Farro).

For Kraft products that contain Vinegar, information from our vinegar
suppliers assures us that
the vinegar we use in our products is gluten free. All vinegar is distilled
and through the
distilling process protein is removed.

If you would like additional information or to view our Gluten Fact Sheet
please visit our
website, www.kraftfoods.com and type gluten in the "Search Kraft" box.

I hope this assist you in making food choices that are appropriate for your
personal needs. If you
have additional questions about your personal dietary needs, please consult
your doctor or a
registered dietitian.

Please add our site, http://www.kraftfoods.com/, to your bookmarks and visit
us again soon!

What is gluten?
Gluten is a mixture of plant proteins that occurr in grain. A small percentage of the population have an intolerance or allergy to foods containing these proteins.

Which of your products contain gluten?
We are sorry to inform you that we do not have a source that lists the gluten content of our products. However, our product labels list common allergens; such as wheat, for those allergic to wheat gluten.

Thank you for your interest in BUSH'S products. As of this date, all of our BUSH'S BEST products are gluten-free with the exception of our BUSH'S BEST Chili Beans products and BUSH'S CHILI MAGIC line.

We do use cornstarch in some of our products (these include all Baked Beans products, Chili Beans, and Chili Magic products), but it does not contain gliadin gluten from wheat, barley, or rye grains, which may cause adverse responses in persons suffering from Celiac Sprue.

I hope this information is helpful. Please keep in mind that we are constantly expanding our product line and may add new products that contain gluten. In order to ensure that a product is gluten free, please call our office at 865-558-5445 and speak to one of our Consumer Relations representatives.
