FDA Finally Goes Gluten Free – Sort of…

FDA Goes Gluten Free Recently the FDA finally approved on a label definition for “gluten free” products.  After years of mounting pressure, it is good to see this new labeling law hold food manufacturers to a greater degree of accountability.   The magic number is 20 ppm.  That means – 20 parts p... http://drosborneglutenfreesociety.com/fda-finally-goes-gluten-free-sort-of/

Guidelines for Avoiding Gluten (Unsafe Ingredients for Gluten Sensitivity)

The following is a comprehensive (but not complete) list of foods that do contain gluten or that may contain it. This list can be used as a guideline for those with gluten intolerance or celiac disease. Many items listed below are traditionally considered safe. However; it should be noted that many of the traditionally safe grains have been studied to cause and to contribute to damage yet they continue to be recommended by the gluten free food industry. TRUE Gluten Free Diet Guidelines – Avoid All of These… • Wheat • Barley (malt) • Rye • Oats • Sorghum* • Millet* • Teff* • Triticale • Spelt • Durum (semolina) • Einkorn • Emmer • Corn (maize)* Rice (does not include wild rice varieties but does include brown rice)* • Groat • Graham • Amaranth*** • Buckwheat*** • Quinoa*** *These grains are classically considered gluten free, but are not recommended on a TRUE gluten free diet. *** These items are technically not grains, but are at high risk for cross contamination and not recommended on a TRUE gluten free diet unless verification can be obtained. These pseudo cereals are also very high in glutamic acid and should be discouraged as substitutes for patients with neurological symptoms. Misc. Food Additives or Processed Foods That Can Contain Gluten • MSG • Modified food starch • Textured vegetable protein • Hydrolyzed plant protein • Hydrolyzed vegetable protein • Hydrogenated Starch Hydrolysate • Hydroxypropylated Starch • Pregelatinized starch • Vegetable gum • Vegetable protein • Extenders and binders • Maltodextrin (wheat or corn based) • Dextrin • Maltose • Non Dairy Creamer • Seasonings (check labels) • Natural Flavors • Smoke flavors • Artificial Flavors • Natural Colors • Artificial Colors • Caramel color and flavoring • Soy Sauce • Miso • Bouillon cubes or stock cubes • Candy may be dusted with wheat flour; ask. • Canned soups – Most are not acceptable. • Cheese spreads & other processed cheese foods. • Chocolate – may contain malt flavoring. • Cold cuts, Wieners, Sausages – may have gluten due to cereal fillers. • Dip mixes • Dry sauce mixes • Honey Hams – can be based with wheat starch in coating. • Ice Cream & Frozen Yogurt – check all dairy. Cows are fed grains and many react to dairy for this reason. Grass fed dairy recommended (or avoid dairy altogether). • Instant Teas & Coffees – cereal products may be included in the formulation. • Mayonnaise – check thickener and grain based vinegar ingredients • Mustard – Mustard powder may contain gluten • Oil, frying – Check for cross contamination or corn based oils. • Poultry and meats – Check out the flavorings and basting and inquire about meat glue • Sour cream – May contain modified food starch of indeterminate source. • Dry roasted nuts & honey roasted nuts • French fries in restaurants – Same oil may be used for wheat-containing items. • Gravies – check out thickening agent and liquid base. • Vitamin supplements (different brands contain grain based ingredients – check the labels carefully) • Baking powder (commonly contains grain – wheat or corn) The Grasses - Many people want to use wheat, barley, rye, and oat grass (not the seed) as a supplement in the diet. Technically, these do not contain gluten as they are the grass part of the plant. However; it is recommended that these be avoided to prevent the possibility of cross contamination. Alcoholic Beverages that contain gluten- • Beer • Malted beverages • Grain based spirits (many claim that distillation removes gluten…Gluten Free Society recommends avoidance regardless) Non Edible Items That May Contain Gluten (Read Your Labels)- • Stamps & envelopes • Toothpaste • Lipstick • Hairspray & Shampoo • Detergents • Pet Food • Medications & Vitamins • Lotions • Playdough • Makeup Is There Gluten in Dairy? Research has identified that gluten from mother’s milk passes into the dairy of humans. A majority of gluten sensitive individuals do not tolerate milk or dairy based foods. The staple diet for commercial dairy cows is grain. Whether or not glutens from feeding cows grain crosses into dairy is still in question and has not been adequately studied. That being said, common sense of the obvious should supersede the decision to use dairy. Gluten Free Society recommends only dairy that comes directly from pasture fed cows if any at all. ****Note – there is no such thing as a complete comprehensive list of food items that contain gluten. Manufacturers regularly change their ingredients, mislabel, have product recalls, etc. This is why Gluten Free Society’s stance is to avoid processed and packaged foods as much as possible as well as to avoid eating out as much as possible. You cannot control the mistakes or ethical considerations of others. Gluten Free Society is your complete resource on all things gluten!
