    Do you have questions about celiac disease or the gluten-free diet?

Both companies that make those products say they will clearly list any gluten. All you have to do is read the ingredients.

Richard - you seem to be an expert regarding labels and I went over the delphi list maybe three times so far trying to learn what's safe and most importantly which companies list what allergens on their labels. Armor has a new turkey sausage that seemed clear cut on the label to be safe so I bought it, knowing I'd need to call them anyway because I'm still learning. Well I could only get a computer prompt program on their 800 #. For allergens they said they will list wheat and all the other offenders. Obviously they did not mention rye or barley. But Armour is owned by Con-Agra and if I understand correctly, they will not hide gluten in the words natural flavorings correct?

I'm not sure I'm an expert.

The signals from Conagra have been confused. There's no question that they at least list wheat, but different people have gotten different answers as to gluten. The last post I saw on this the company had said they do now list all gluten, but I'm not the one who called them and got that answer. In reality, rye is never hidden and barley only very rarely.

Every Vienna-style sausage I've ever checked has been gluten-free, including regular Armour. If the label is clear, the turkey version probably is safe as well, but I don't know that 100 percent.

Thanks Richard. I guess I'll call Hormel again and see what they say IF I can get a real human on the phone - yesterday I could not. Applegate farms has lots of gluten free sausages so I may switch to them anyway.

ON the crispy butterfingers, they have wafers, which is off limits, those wafers going to be cookies which are going to be made out wheat. It should say wheat rather loudly on the label. All M&M's except for the blue (crispy) ones are gluten-free. There is a current controversy in another thread about exactly how gluten-free the hershey's chocolate bars are.

Anything Crispy in the Candy department is usually pretty suspect.

Thanks broncobux! No I haven't tried those sausages but I'm sure Harry's carries them here. I prefer to pay extra (if necessary) for the gluten free marked items when possible. I'd like to not spend two hours getting $50 worth of groceries reading every label of every item. I'll read them when I have to (which is most of the time) but really I can make up the extra cost of the marked gluten-free stuff by spending more time working (100% comm. income) rather than reading labels every minute of the day.
