    • Rice and soy beverages because their production process may utilize barley enzymes.
    • Bad advice from health food store employees (i.e., that spelt and/or kamut is/are safe for celiacs).
    • Cross-contamination between food store bins selling raw flours and grains (usually via the scoops).
    • Wheat-bread crumbs in butter, jams, toaster, counter, etc.
    • Lotions, creams and cosmetics (primarily for those with dermatitis herpetaformis).
    • Toothpaste and mouthwash.
    • Medicines: many contain gluten.
    • Cereals: most contain malt flavoring, or some other non-gluten-free ingredient.
    • Some brands of rice paper.
    • Sauce mixes and sauces (soy sauce, fish sauce, catsup, mustard, mayonnaise, etc.).
    • Ice cream.
    • Packet & canned soups.
    • Dried meals and gravy mixes.
    • Laxatives.
    • Grilled restaurant food - gluten contaminated grill.
    • Fried restaurant foods - gluten contaminated grease.
    • Ground spices - wheat flour is sometimes used to prevent clumping.

    According to the manufacturer's web site all varieties of Rice Dream non-dairy beverages and all varieties of Soy Dream non-dairy beverages are currently GLUTEN-FREE.

    I called the manufacturer of Rice Dream, and was assured that their (at least the organic variety) rice beverage was completely gluten-free. And as for malt flavoring, check with the manufacturer again, as some malt flavoring is from corn, not barley. It's annoying to have to make calls, but better safe than sorry, and sometimes you get the happy surprise that a seemingly 'unsafe' product is really safe.

    I have been diagnosed with Celiac since 2004 and never thought of the toaster oven as being a gluten carrier. Thank you so much for the tip. It's so hard to maintain a 100% gluten free diet in this high gluten society.

    What a great site, and very helpful information. My daughter who is 14 just got diagnosed last month and I also now have to read all labels and help her make sure that she is following the diet as best as she can. Thanks for the great work......

    Rice Dream irritates my stomach. I use West Soy Rice beverage, plain. It tastes like real milk. Don't forget to shake the rice containers before drinking because of settling.

    Re: Cluppins and Rice Dream irritating stomach. You're tummy may actually be bothered by the thickener used in many alternative 'milks' such as Rice Dream - carrageenan. My doctor brought this to my attention, along with problems attached to sugar substitute Chicolin. Both can cause cramping and stomach upset in general. Both don't bother my husband but they did me.

    Oops. I didn't realize that Rice Dream actually has barley in it. I was diagnosed AFTER I had stopped drinking it. However, my comments still stand for anybody out there regarding Chicolin and Carrageenan. Cheerio.

    Yes, to quote an ENT doc I saw before I was diagnosed with Celiac's..."it's a train wreck in there."  I ended up getting allergy shots for years.  The pin prick test showed I was allergic to everything except the negative saline control o...
    For me it does.  When I get glutened, the best way to describe it is how you feel when you know you are just getting a really bad flu.  I don't get the bad intestinal symptoms others describe, but I do feel a fluttery weird feeling in there. ...
    Actually, yes, it could be celiac. Hard to know without getting tested. Anxiety and lactose intolerance are big problems for celiacs and many celiacs get misdiagnosed with IBS. I would certainly push your Dr. to have the proper testing done...
