What does No Gluten Really Mean?


There has been plenty of times when I was eating a snack or a meal that was labeled “gluten free” only to get sick afterwards. This had me thinking, how can I be sure. The problem here is, you can’t. Unless you prepare it yourself in your kitchen with items you grew yourself, there is no guarantee. 

The disclaimer most products use is that they are allowed a small portion of gluten and they can still label the item “gluten free.”

That’s great but what about people like me? I am allergic to gluten and even a small amount can cause a reaction. This is not fair. Maybe but it is what it is. If you want to enjoy that product that has been mass produced and may contain that little portion, you are willing to take that risk.

I am a single mother new to the world of gluten free. I recently learned I have a gluten allergy and I have been learning to live without gluten.
