Gluten Free Cooking Oils
0

8 posts in this topic

I contacted Whole Foods recently to ask if they had a list of cooking oils that are not processed in facilities that also process wheat/gluten. The list is below.

They don't show these in their standard gluten-free list because these oils don't undergo routine testing for gluten. But, like they say, they are processed in facilities that don't process wheat/gluten, so there's no risk of cross contamination.

The reason I asked them is because there are some oils from other companies (like Spectrum) that are processed in facilities that also process wheat, and have been a problem for me.

Thank you for posting this! I was just having trouble and figured out that the spectrum oils were bothering me! Trying to find truly gluten free oils has been such a bear!

Why would you be concerned about your olive oil? Personally, I'm not concerned about any cooking oils.

I am very sensitive to trace gluten cc. I did have problems with my olive oil. It took me a long while to figure it out because I didn't suspect it in the least.

IMO, you only need to be concerned if you are supersensitive and you buy oil from a company that also processes wheat germ oil on the same equipment. Spectrum naturals is one of those brands that has been mentioned here in another thread. I buy Bertolli olive oil and I'm not concerned in the least about gluten in it because olive oil is the only type of oil the company processes.
