I've long thought blue cheese to be gluten-free because even if the mold is started on bread, it's very unlikely the "gluten" would transfer in the culture, and even if it did, there's just no way that such a tiny amount of culture in such a large vat could even be measured.

Anyway, here's a message from Shelley Case on this very subject. And Cynthia Kupper of GIG agrees. IMO, this should put to rest questions about blue cheese. It's gluten-free.

The Canadian Celiac Association [CCA] has recently investigated a variety of

blue cheese on the market and found that very few are made using bread mold,

and when they are, the test results completed by Health Canada found no

detectable levels of gluten in the final product. The new CCA Acceptability

of Food and Food Ingredients for the Gluten-Free Diet pocket dictionary

lists blue cheese as allowed on a gluten-free diet.

Oh foolish one. If only it could be done. Nothing is ever put to rest where gluten-free is concerned. :D

You're right. Silly me.

But it's been put to rest for me. Actually, it was put to rest for me a few years ago.

BTW, Scott also has blue cheese on his safe list. I hadn't seen that before.
