Does A "master" List Of Gluten Ingredient Exist?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I'm having a hard time getting handle on the things I need to avoid since being recently diagnosed with Celiac disease. Besides the obvious listings of ingredients like wheat, barley, rye on food AND also hygiene products, make-up, shampoo, conditioner, lotion, toothpaste, deodorant... What are other ingredients to look for??? How do you know if they have 'hidden' gluten under some complicated name that you don't recognize? For example, I looked at all my shampoo, cond., lotion, toothpaste, etc. and the only thing that listed wheat was my shampoo & conditioner, however, from this forum it seems that others have a HARD time finding products like that DON'T contain gluten. I find it unlikely that I would happen to have the ones that don't have gluten. For example, I read one post on here that said tocopheryl acetate in hand sanitizer sometimes is made from wheat, I would've NEVER known that, how would you ever know that! So my question is for the experienced Celiacs out there... What do I look for??? What are the ingredients you look for to avoid in hygiene/ make-up products and also food??? What else do they list wheat/barley/rye under??? Any help would be greatly appreciated!!!!

Thank you!!
