‘Gluten-Free’ May Not Mean Gluten Free
Reading is believing, right? Well, not necessarily.
Fox News is reporting that when you sit down to a delicious pizza or pasta and thinking it's 'Gluten-Free', about 32% of the time it isn't.
They're saying a study published in the American Journal of Gastroenterology (there's a magazine you probably don't just breeze through) nearly a third of restaurant foods marked gluten free aren't. And with folks that have celiac disease, that can be a major problem.
They say if you do have celiac disease, you should feel comfortable just asking the waiter/waitress how the food is prepared.
While under USDA law, packaged foods with gluten below 20 parts per million can be labeled 'Gluten-Free', the law doesn't apply to restaurant foods.
