I"m ok with all of these except some of the salad dressings. Some I've seen contain gluten components. There really is no short cut for reading the labels. I know with the gouda it depends on the brand. Processed cheese they get in Hawaii changes each time they seem to get a shipment so I have to check each time or just buy imports that are really 100% cheese. Also I would be careful of the syrups and check the labels for modified food starch and hydrolyzed proteins that are not defined as to source.

Good luck

you can't assume that a whole category of anything is gluten free - if it's not a whole food, you *HAVE* to read the ingredients. sryups can certainly have a wheat based ingredient, depending on what type of syrup you're talking about, as it may have malt. salad dressings as well, particularly if they have soy sauce. always, always read the ingredients.

Hi--

You can never assume that a whole catagory of foods is gluten-free. There are safe syrups and unsafe ones, for example.

I use pure maple syrup--that being the only ingredient. Crest Toothpastes are gluten-free, as are most others--but there are one or two that are not safe.

You need to check on each individual product--of course, you can always post it here and chances are someone knows the gluten status.

No need to simply avoid natural flavors--again, you need to check. There are companies that will clearly list gluten in the ingredients. Kraft, Con Agra, Unilever, McCormick, and Nestle to name a few.

I just had my kid retested for celiac disease and we are waiting for the results.  Her doctor does not hesitate to test since I have a firm diagnosis.  I can also say that my PCP and GI  never hesitate to check for other AI issues either.  They know that you can develop more than one autoimmune disorder.  Better to catch it early before damage!   If you get an endoscopy, be sure to do a gluten challenge 2 to 4 weeks prior or your result will be negative!
