Can Someone Define "clearly List All Gluten"?

Recommended Posts

So I know there are companies that will "clearly list all gluten" (Like Kraft for example) and I'm just wondering does that mean it will say "Wheat" "Barley" "Rye" etc.... or does it mean it will list the things on that ridiculously long list?


10-06 Diagnosed Urinary Tract Infection (Allergic to Cipro, Bactrim, Macrobid, Doxycycline, Monocycline, Penicillin) - This UTI is still present with no symptoms.

10-06 Diagnosed "Acid Reflux" (Nexium didn't work)

12-06 Endoscopy diagnosed Gastritis (Negative Bioposy)

12-06 Negative bloodwork for Celiac Disease, Diagnosed "Gastroparesis" - Started Zelnorm

1-07 Diagnosed "IBS-C" - Still taking Zelnorm

3-07 HIDA scan to check gallbladder which was fully functional.

3-07 Zelnorm taken off market, started Domperidone

4-21-07 Emergency Appendectomy (FUUUNN!)

7-24-07 Enterolab results came back positive

Gluten Free since that night....

...Still not feeling great.

"Wheat", "Barley", "Rye", "Malt" - clearly

This means that the gluten-containing grain will be listed by its common name. Look for the specific words: Wheat, Rye, Barley or Oats. If malt is listed, it should say something like "malt flavor (barley)" or similar words. No obscure terms to look for--the grain will be obvious.

If none of the grains we care about are listed by name, then the product does not contain gluten, and is safe for us to eat.

Diagnosis by biopsy of practically non-existent villi; gluten-free since July 2000. I was retested five years later and the biopsy was normal. You can beat this disease!
