Hi,

This is my fifth day gluten-free. Starting to feel better. I need help with reading ingredient lables. Besides the obvious-wheat, barley, rye, oats. What other ingredients must I be looking for that I must avoid?

I've been reading around here and have gotten a lot of valuable info.

Thanks!

Susan

Have you looked at the lists of safe and forbidden foods/ingredients on this website?

http://www.celiac.com/st_main.html?p_catid...-36105028321.14

The main ingredients I always investigate further are:

Modified Food Starch

Caramel Color

Natural Flavor

Artificial Flavor

Foods with these ingredients are often gluten free, but you need to verify that they are gluten-free with the manufacturer.

The list Laurie put up is one of the most helpful ones I've come across. I'd encourage you to keep a copy with you for a while until you've got the important ones memorized.

You should print out the list of safe and forbidden ingredients. That will definitely help you out. The brands mentioned in a link above are great for us too because they will not hide any gluten under any otherwise questionable ingredients.

I'm "new" too......Is it true that "Natural Flavors" are only a concern in meat products or products potentially containing meat?

Natural Flavors all need to be checked on because it can contain gluten.
