Also, in the US, if it contains wheat, they must disclose that.

If there were wheat in it, in the US (and Canada) it would be required by law to be disclosed as just that, "wheat."
Shelley Case on flavorings:
It would be rare to find a "natural or artificial flavoring" containing gluten (a) because hydrolyzed wheat protein cannot be hidden under the term "flavor." and (B) barley malt extract is almost always declared as "barley malt extract" or "barley malt flavoring." For this reason, most experts do not restrict natural and artificial flavorings in the gluten-free diet.
