If it says Artificial flavoring (only) it should be fine.
If it says Natural flavorings it may not be fine it depends on the product and company. At first I was calling all companies and sometimes still do.
MY personal rule :
If the only questionable ingredient is Natural flavoring ( ie no wheat , rye , barley or oats ) and its a dairy or sugar candy product it's probably fine. If it's a grain/protein based product I consider the source and possibly call.
Stawberry Yogurt - ok
Sweetarts = ok
Cheese balls = ok
Flavored sausage = I would call if not declared
According to the FDA a natural flavoring is the (essence or essential oil) of a product. If that flavoring comes from Wheat, Rye, or Barley it should be declared.
I know this does not give you definite answers as a guide for all products but NOBODY can give you that. If you question an item ,post it and maybe someone can tell you.

gluten-free since June, 2011
It took 3 !/2 years but my intolerances to corn, soy, and everything else (except gluten) are gone!
Life is good!
