Hi,
This is my fifth day gluten-free. Starting to feel better. I need help with reading ingredient lables. Besides the obvious-wheat, barley, rye, oats. What other ingredients must I be looking for that I must avoid?

I've been reading around here and have gotten a lot of valuable info.

Thanks!
Susan

Have you looked at the lists of safe and forbidden foods/ingredients on this website?
http://www.celiac.co...-36105028321.14

The main ingredients I always investigate further are:
Modified Food Starch
Caramel Color
Natural Flavor
Artificial Flavor

Foods with these ingredients are often gluten free, but you need to verify that they are gluten-free with the manufacturer.

You only need to call companies not on Kaiti's list of safe companies. Here's her list in this group of posts.

The list Laurie put up is one of the most helpful ones I've come across. I'd encourage you to keep a copy with you for a while until you've got the important ones memorized.

You should print out the list of safe and forbidden ingredients. That will definitely help you out. The brands mentioned in a link above are great for us too because they will not hide any gluten under any otherwise questionable ingredients.

I'm "new" too......Is it true that "Natural Flavors" are only a concern in meat products or products potentially containing meat?

Natural Flavors all need to be checked on because it can contain gluten.
