Until 2006, when companies have to start labeling allergens, you have to call the company if "modified food starch" appears in the ingredients. (This doesn't hold true for the companies that have a policy of listing gluten containing ingredients, like Kraft.)

Hi, welcome! I'm also fourteen...on the gluten-free diet for 11 months...

Yes, modified food starch CAN contain gluten, but doesn't always. You should call the company if you find that on a label except for with some celiac-friendly companies, such as Kraft (as tarnalberry said). Kraft will label any source of gluten or other common allergens (soy, etc.) on the lables in parentheses if they are hidden in another ingredient (such as natural flavors, artifical flavors, modified food starch, etc.)

I also don't mind answering any questions you have about the diet, etc. :)

17 and gluten-free for, oh somewhere around 3 years or so

it would be best to avoid modified food starch

check the list here, and if you dont know about it, then contact the company and ask if its gluten-free

ttry using rice milk. My bro has been milk free since he was an infant. Just make sure you read the side because we just recently found out that rice dream contains barley protein!!!!! So read the side. The stuff we now use if called natura rice-um. Weird name but it says Gluten-free on the side. It's almost like real milk.

Hope this helps!!! :)

I'm back to answer my own question...the vanilla flavored kind is not gluten free, and it's possible that there might be some cross-contamination into the regular kind, but people have reported back with no ill effects from it...
