What is Gluten called on labels (for Shampoo and other products)? I understand they don't just put, "gluten" on the list of ingredients. What's on the list of ingredients that will tell me if it contains gluten?

In general, it's called wheat, barley, oats or rye. Often as not, they do it in Latin, just to make it harder to find. (Actually, I'd guess it's to make it sound more exotic and expensive, but the result is the same.) Here's a good thread from a couple of years ago on the topic: http://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/index.php?showtopic=31654 and here's the unsafe ingredients list from this site: http://www.celiac.com/articles/182/1/Unsaf...ents/Page1.html The latter is useful in this instance because it includes all those annoying Latin names. The first thread contains many suggestions for products from companies that either don't include gluten or clearly disclose it when they do (in case you don't feel like sorting through the Latin).
