Not Certified Gluten Free

Recommended Posts

Hi,

My daughter brought home a box of assorted Belgium chocolates from Lamontagne, which (here in Canada) is a fundraising organisation. I e-mailed them yesterday to ask if their product was gluten free. Their reply was: "There is no gluten in our products but we are not certified gluten free". Not sure how to deal with response. I think probably most "off the shelf" items we eat are not certified, but still don't contain gluten. Any thoughts would be welcome. Would you eat them? Thanks for any advice!

Most mainstream manufacturers do not test their products for gluten. 99% of the market don't care and don't want to pay extra. I use such products all the time. No worries.

Diagnosis by biopsy of practically non-existent villi; gluten-free since July 2000. I was retested five years later and the biopsy was normal. You can beat this disease!
