We have eaten all the varieties with no problems. They are marked gluten-free right on the bag.

I understand that, but is the 100 ppm "safe"? No one has had any reactions? Thanks for your post.

I thought that in the US nothing over 20 ppm was allowed to have a gluten free label on it. I'm very confused. I have a new bag of them. I just bought them and I didn't notice that saying unil now. I'm not going to eat them now. Too afraid.

My daughter and I reacted to them. I posted on here asking if anyone else had a reaction a year or so again and got a nasty pm from someone at the company bashing me for writing that post. I was not impressed!

Becky, are you serious? You actually got a nasty pm from someone at this company? May I ask what was said?

Also, what reaction did you and your daughter have?

According to CODEX standards, its anything below 200 ppm.

At this point, there is no definition in the US for what is gluten free. It is being discussed at the government level, and a ruling is supposed to come out in 8/08. When the ruling comes out, manufacturers using the gluten-free label will be voluntary.

The 200 PPM CODEX standard relates to Europe and other countries, not the US.

We have eaten Mr. Krispers with no effects. Our antibodies are negative, an we did not react to them. You could contact the company or not eat them if you don't fel safe about them. Definitely a personal choice. Good luck with whatever you decide to do. :)

That is right CODEX is for Europe. However, I know some companies here in the US use that standard (at least from what I've read).

It's not that I don't feel safe eating them, it's that I'm not sure if I have reacted with eating them. This is why I've asked what other's experiences have been.
