i just stumbled across www.gfoverflow.com and became really excited that a data base like this is out there but then i got worried about relying on this site to much. Does anyone know much about this site and how reliable it is? i understand that no matter what a company says about there product or a website or anyone really i will still forever be reading labels even if it says gluten free. i just dont wanna get into the habit of using this website as a source and realize or find out that things are really wrong. if there was a post about this before my bad a link would be greatly appreciated.

I've never heard of that site before but it looks interesting. That said, I will always read labels as I trust the label to be more up-to-date than a website listing.

I agree with sa1937...take what you find on the internet with a grain of salt (including our forum). Things can get outdated quickly and bad information can be passed on unknowingly. The best bet is always to read labels and call companies if necessary.

Hi Everyone,

I am the creator of gfoverflow.com. I built the site because I wanted to make it easier for people to find everyday products that are gluten-free.

I understand your concerns about the information on the site. I've built a couple features into the site that should help with your concerns about accuracy:

Company Policies: for each product that I list as gluten-free, I also post the source of the information. So I'll link to any brand website that lists a gluten policy, or if not listed publicly, I will email the company and quote directly from their response.

Last Checked Date: if you click through to the individual product pages you can see the "last checked" date. This is the most recent date that the company or brand's policy was confirmed.

I hope you enjoy the site and find it useful, and I encourage you to continue checking the labels before actually buying (always a good policy). Please feel free to let me know if you have any questions about the site. I'd be happy to answer them.
