Hi all, well I'm a week into being gluten free and must admit I'm finding it tough and feeling rough. But I think its my own fault in not organising myself properly with alternatives.

Anyways, as a veggie, one if my staples as always been Quorn ready meals and now I appreciate that they are a no no as the ingredients specifically say "contains wheat, barley" :(

However, on the chicken style pieces which I usually make my own curry sauces for, the allergy label states "produced in a factory which handles milk, wheat, gluten" but doesnt list anything suspicious in the ingredients list.

Does this mean the product could be suitable? I think ive read somewhere on here that as long as foods contain less than 20ppm it doesnt need to mentioned or something along those lines...anyone got any info on this?

How careful do I need to be?
Thanks

I think most celiacs will avoid products made in a wheat facility, but that's just my opinion. I personally wouldn't trust them. I'd be as careful as possible.

I once reacted to a gluten-free beer that was gluten-free to less than 6ppm... it doesn't take much for some things.

My luck!...was hoping there'd be at least some quorn products still suitable.

Ah well, thanks for that nvsmom.
