Anyone Try Tastes Like Real Food Brand?

Recommended Posts

I don't understand how the wheat starch in the tastes like real food mixes are safe. Has anyone reacted to the wheat? I'm assuming it wouldn't be safe for a wheat allergy.

The processing of wheat starch eliminates nearly all the gluten. In countries with codex standards, wheat starch is often used because it will test below the required ppm of gluten in a food. This does not mean it's 100% gluten-free, just that it is very, very, very low in gluten. Most celiacs are ok with this - the very sensitive are not. I am not very sensitive, and I still choose not to eat wheat starch. As for wheat allergies, I'm not sure what part of the wheat people react to (although it's probably not the gluten) so I'd guess wheat starch is not ok for allergies.


Gluten-Free since September 15, 2005.
