Olive Oil?
0

7 posts in this topic

I have a bottle of Rachael Ray Everyday EVOO and I know olive oil is supposed to be gluten free but the bottle doesn't say anything. Has anyone ever seen an olive oil with gluten or should they all be safe?

Basically, pretty much anything you buy that's only one ingredient is safe. The only single ingredient

products you should be concerned about are flours and starches, as you'll want to make sure that

they are milled and packaged safely. But a bag of salt, bottle of olive oil, things like that, really have

no opportunity for being contaminated in any way. Just watch out for blends, or mixes, like if a bottle

of olive oil were 'seasoned', and had solids in it, then I would double check the product. If it's just olive

oil? You're good.

Don't worry, the paranoia will pass and you'll calm down. It gets easier. ;)

There is a basic concept in labels that a label must not be misleading. It is considered misleading to label a product such as pure olive oil as "gluten-free" because it is not a distinguishing characteristic of that specific product. A label may say something like "Olive oil is naturally gluten-free" or "This oil, like all olive oil, is gluten-free." This rarely appears on labels, since it provides no upside, but may discourage uniformed customers who wrongly believe "gluten-free" means "tastes like crap."

I find your 'uniformed' typo amusing. :P
