Old El Paso is a company that adheres to a strict gluten disclosure policy. If any of the gluten grains are present in the product they will be named in the ingredient list. If didn't see wheat, rye, barley or oats named, then they are not there.

Dear blondebombshell,

Ortega is also safe. It is one I love. They adhere to a very strict labeling policy like Old El Paso.

The last time I checked, all of their products were gluten-free. Daisy sour cream is safe if you can have dairy. The low-fat and fat-free versions are as well. Kraft shredded cheeses (like all Kraft products), clearly label any gluten or casein-containing ingredients.

Sincerely,

NoGluGirl

malodextrin is actually safe.

Only in North America, in Europe it often comes from wheat ...

What about the old el paso hard taco shells? Are they ok?

The ones I know about are made from corn. Old El Paso is a General mills brand and will clearly disclose gluten in the ingredients list. If you don`t see wheat, barley, rye or oats listed in the ingredients, then they are not there. They will not be hidden in other ingredients.
