Be Careful!

I am astounded by the amount of foods and products that either have gluten, or wheat flour added to them. Even the delicious salads from restaurants, you know the ones, with the adorable little bags of nuts they give you to sprinkle on top gleefully? Those nuts are coated in wheat flour. Why? What could they possibly add to make nuts better?  The answer is that they sweeten the nuts with a nasty little mixture of honey, and sugar and other chemicals designed to "enhance the flavor' and the flour binds it all to the nuts. 

Anyone with a gluten sensitivity, allergy, or full blown

celiac knows that salads are our friends. What would we do without salad? But make sure to carefully read any of the ingredients that are listed on any packet that comes with these salads, including the dressing. 

Careful is now my middle name. I check everything. Especially after getting sick twice after eating at my favorite sushi restaurant, I found out that not only is wheat in the soy sauce but also in the artificial crab meat! Who knew? This girl does now, and will happily check every label, google every item, and research, research, research!

Good Luck my fellow Glutenators!

As always, welcomes your comments (see below).

Sorry you had to learn the "hard way", but I am celiac and learned years ago to trust nothing. I ask for gluten-free menus where ever I dine and read every label on every item I buy. It is getting easier, some information is available on the internet. I just contacted Hormel, Inc, and learned they have a complete list of their gluten-free products in a PDF form on their web site. Panera Bread also has information on its site as does Wendy's...good luck.
