I don't have a web site for you, and after eleven years gluten-free, I don't think that is the route to go.
Web sites may provide a starting point, but the definitive answer is on the label. Read the label. The package you have may be older, or newer, than the information on the web site, even if it is the manufacturers own web site.
In the US (and Canada), if wheat is a constituent of a product, it must be named as "wheat" either in the ingredient list or in an adjacent "contains" statement. Rye doesn't hide. Barley can legally be concealed in "flavors" but almost never is. Read the label.
Try these links for useful information:
Here's a list of companies that have a clear gluten policy. If you don't see "wheat, rye, barley, barley malt, oats" on the labels, its not there, or hidden in "flavors, starches, etc."
I am not a supporter of lists--they are out of date the minute that you print them. Formulas are constantly changing. That is why I like to buy from companies who will label clearly (see the third link above). Always read the label.
Did I remember to tell you to read the label?

The others have given really good advice. I can't think of anything to add.
Do you have a whole food grocery near you? They carry a ton of gluten free foods.
I tend to eat things that are naturally gluten free, whole foods, in their natural form. I hope you adjust and things get better. (((((hugs))))

October 2012- I learned that I am 1/2 Irish with a strong family history of Gluten Intolerance/Celiacs. I will never know If I am Celiac because I will never eat gluten again in order to test postive, it's poison and I do not ever want to feel the way I felt before implementing the gluten free diet EVER again!!!
