I bought some dates today and it says that the coating contains glucose syrup (made from wheat)...my first reaction was damn I cant eat them now! But I found something saying wheat based glucose syrup is still gluten free...is this true? Can I actually eat them??

Glucose syrup is highly refined and purified and is gluten-free regardless of source.

Bon apetit!

This is only my personal opinion but I would pass. Then again I am very sensitive to even the smallest amount of gluten. If you are not overly sensitive go ahead and give it a try but be on the lookout for a possible reaction and keep in mind that reactions can be delayed.
