Old Orange Juice Thread
Posted 03 August 2010 - 04:02 AM
I'm sure there's a way to make orange juice without putting flour in it.
That sounds simple and ignorant, but come on......
It's like these companies are playing cat and mouse with us and it just pisses me off. I have no respect for these companies, like Chex cereals
GLUTEN FREE WRITTEN BIG ALL OVER THE BOX
Write to them or call them, and they're like, hum, huh, well, hum,
just ridiculous to play with people like this. There oughta be a law against it and there probably is.
It was one mom who started MADD, right? Maybe I will be the mom to start GHAG (pronounced gag)Get Honest About Gluten.

What we really need is accurate and complete labels but unfortunately if something is used as a 'flavoring agent' in a small amount the FDA does not require it to be listed. Hence the removal from 'barley' in the ingredients of Rice Dream.

Squeeze out juice.
Ok, I am being a little bit smart, but I understand the frustration. There are so many things that it seems like you shouldn't have to question the ingredients, but you do. I can't have soy and very little dairy. I found out I can tolerate goat's milk cheese better than cow's milk cheese. So I was buying goat cheese and checking ingredients and I saw one that had SOY in it. It wasn't flavored either, just plain cheese. With soy added. Why the heck would they need to put soy in cheese? Or tuna that's another one where most cans have soy. Soy is in everything just like gluten. The only good thing is they have to list the soy. Whereas with gluten they don't have to list barley or rye or oats. I think they should have to list any source of gluten.
