I have been gluten free now for over 3 years. It has transformed my digestive system and I am committed to being gluten free and not careless in my grocery purchases.
So, for a long time, I had found gluten free products at walmart. I wasn't thrilled with the sugar they put in tomato sauce, but hey, it was guaranteed gluten free. So now, the VERY SAME BRAND, with a new label, says at the bottom, "Naturally Gluten Free", but if you read the entire label, it says "manufactured in a plant that also processes wheat"..... ummmm, so how can it be gluten free? Oh I see, it is a "naturally gluten free food" before they process it.
Yea, I can grow a tomato and guarantee it is gluten free in its natural state....
This kind of labeling makes me crazy mad! They are messing with my life here..... I want to feel good. There have been several times that I have cooked and eaten food and then thought, I think I just had gluten, but couldn't figure it out..... I just wonder if the products have always had traces of gluten and now the labels match the truth?
I saw this same sort of label on Blue Diamond rice crackers. It shouts gluten free on the front of the box, but on the side of the box it states, that the crackers are made in a place that also manufactures products with wheat.
I wish folks would stop trying to get in on the gluten free market without being honest and wreaking havoc on millions of intestines across the nation!
Gluten FREE should mean EXACTLY THAT! No wheat, anywhere nearby, no glutens ANYWHERE nearby to cause a gluten free person harm.
On a good note: I am drinking a fabulous roasted tomato pepper soup made from Pacific Natural Foods.
Great taste and GUARANTEED gluten free!
Does anybody know of any tomato sauce that is guaranteed gluten free?
I would hate to have to grow and can that many tomatoes! Not with this shoulder anyway.
