This is a celiac game...reading labels. :lol: Not something we would need, but maybe good for kids who are just learning. There is one mistake. On one of the foods it says that you need to check maltodextrin for the source--really, it's always gluten-free in the US unless it says wheat in front of it, but hey!

:D :P :lol:

:lol:
HA! Wouldn't that just be convenient! A portable device that scans the bar code or something and says "yes! gluten free" or "no! not for you" :D

yes... apparently, if there is wheat they won't hide it (unlike Canada)

Maltodextrin in foods in the U.S. is NOT always gluten-free, but if it's made from the manufacturer is by law required to clearly state that. Occasionally you will see "wheat maltodextrin" or "maltodextrin (wheat)". Some maltodextrin from Europe is made from wheat because of their fear of GMO corn.

I'm new to the gluten free diet and am VERY careful with labels and am still learning. This was a quick fun game to play, thank you!! I did not get 100 % but I did not do that bad either. I learned malt flavoring has gluten in it and didnt know that before.

Thank you!! :)

Great idea to send to friends/family to let them see how to read labels!! By the way... I got 100% ~ BUT, one thing the game doesn't represent is cross contamination issues. I would never eat the chips in the game due to that fact!! :)

Good game for beginners. It is a start on teaching folks to read the labels! I got 100%, by the way! :D

I love the sarcastic touch, too. Like on the side of one of the corn flake boxes (the left one) (before you click on it) it says something about how there's a chance you could win $100,000, but more likely, you'll get a piece of worthless plastic. :lol:

On the same box, this time when you click it, it recommends that you add one cup of milk and fifteen teaspoons of sugar. For maximum impact, eat it really quickly while watching high impact cartoons in the morning. Sweeten to taste with more sugar. LOL

Yes, a good game for people who don't yet get it. A little more lighthearted. If it addressed cross-contamination, though, then you'd have to get into calling the companies and such...too complicated :P
