anyone use these? it does not say gluten free on it but I read 2-3 reviews on other websites that it is tolerated by people with celiac ds.I could not find any other red lentils taht are labeled "gluten free".
Also anyone heard of "finger millet"? this is different form your regular millet and consumed heavily in India especially as baby food.Is it available in US? it is available in Indian store but is not gluten free.
Thanks in advance.

Lentils themselves are gluten-free, but they can become contaminated during shipping and packaging, so you may find unexpected grains in any bag of lentils. Pour them out in a plate and sort through carefully before using. It wouldn't hurt to then wash them to remove any gluten-containing dust. As for the finger millet, I don't know. Millet is gluten-free (except for possible contamination as above). Here's a link I found that says finger millet is gluten-free, but you will probably have to look into any specific product. http://naturopathycu...er-Millet-(Ragi).php

Thanks, is it okay to just wash off any gluten containing dust ? I mean how safe is that celiac wise? There is a huge choice of grains that are naturally gluten free, but finding something that's not contaminated is very tricky.
