Re: what celiacs can and can't eat

The Can'ts:

Short list: wheat, rye, oats and barley.

Long list: wheat, rye, oats, barley, spelt, kamut, tricale, bulgar, couscous, durum, einkorn, farina, gluten, matzo, semolina.

Gluten can be hidden in the ingredient list under innocuous sounding names: Hydrolyzed Vegetable Protein (HVP), Vegetable Protein, Modified Food Starch, Soy Sauce, Malt, Bran, Natural flavoring or Caramel coloring.

Wheat must be listed as an ingredient since the Allergen Act of 2004 but barley can still slip by, especially as it is often used as a "natural flavor".

Re: what celiacs can and can't eat

The Cans:

Meats, dairy, fruits, vegetables, oils and vinegars are naturally GF unless flavored, for example: some chocolate milks contain malt flavoring. Chicken and beef in restaurants are often "pumped up" with injections of wheat containing soy sauce. Real maple syrup is GF but the flavored corn syrup varieties may not be.

GF flours and starches:
Rice, Corn, Cassava, Soy, Potato, Yam, pure Buckwheat, Quinoa, Amaranth, Nut Flours, Teff, Tapioca, Arrowroot, Xanthum Gum, Guar gum, Bean flours, Sorghum, Acacia, Agar, Millet and more I've forgotten.

There is no master list, Celiacs must always read the ingredients and check with the manufacturer if necessary. Most products have a 1-800 # right on their label.
