Gluten Free Hotline?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know if there is a hotline where you can call/text to ask if a food contains gluten? Something like CHA CHA, or KGB? Often i don't know if certain foods contain gluten, or if certain companies put gluten in their products. It would be nice to be able to call a hotline, or text someone reliable to find out quickly.

University of Chicago Celiac Center has a hotline, although it may be more for health related questions than for food. Still, it is a good resource.

They are very friendly there. It may take a day or so to get a return call. Here is what they have posted on their site:

"The University of Chicago Celiac Disease Center's Information Hotline is the only one of its kind in the nation.

We are standing by to answer your questions about Celiac Disease: symptoms, diagnosis, treatment and follow up care. We are here to help.

Our telephone number is 773-702-7593"

We do our best to answer every call, however, should you reach our voicemail, please leave a message. All calls will be returned.

Safe ingredients: http://www.celiac.co...ents/Page1.html

A list of companies that has a clear gluten policy. If you don't see "wheat, rye, barley, barley malt, oats" on the labels, its not there, or hidden in "flavors, starches, etc." http://www.glutenfre...lists/index.htm and http://glutenfreeins...ct_updates.html This makes shopping MUCH easier.

FDA foods are required to list wheat - it cannot be hidden.
