  1. I have a Melaleuca nutrition shake (Crave Blocker) which I like and if I have one for breakfast, it really gets me through the morning. It states that it is gluten-free. However it says on the list of ingredients that it contains (a small percentage of) barley fiber. How can they claim it is gluten-free when it has barley fiber in the ingredients? ( have heard that if it contains less than a certain amount of gluten, a company can claim it is gluten-free. Is this true?) I am not celiac, but gluten intolerant (I have a gliaden count of 8). I do not notice any symptoms when I drink it, (No intestinal gurgling, or pain.) I suspect that either the fiber contains no gluten, or that it is not enough to disturb me. Any comments?
