Question: Can you tell me what other names there are for gluten on product labels?
Answer: The Celiac Sprue Association has a wonderful resource to help you with the terms for label reading. On their website, they have a Grains and Flours Glossary that breaks down the different ingredient terms and tells you if someone with Celiac Disease or Gluten Intolerance can have the ingredient or not. The list can be found at http://www.csaceliacs.org/GlutenFree_Flour_Guide.php.
We also have a variety of links to other resources on our website at www.meijerhealthyliving.com on the ‘Gluten Free Resources’ link under the “Special Diets” heading.
