Most of the products that are listed in the may contain gluten section are there because of Modified Food Starch. This site and list needs to be modified because the newest food labeling laws made it so wheat has to be listed if it is the source for the modified food starch. Most Modified food starch in the USA and Canada are gluten free but the few that are not are usually made form wheat and thus will be labeled as such. This law opened up a lot of foods that we had to avoid before. In 1994 when i was diagnosed, Modified Food Starch was always on the no, no list. Now it is mostly on the safe list, unless labeled as coming form wheat. Malted milk is obvious because it contains malt which is almost always from barley. Sour cream often has modified food starch in it as a stabilizer, now most of those are safe but occasionally you will find one that says wheat. Most creamers are safe now.
UGH! Sometimes I feel like there's NOTHING I can eat that I didn't purchase the raw ingredients and make from scratch in my own kitchen! Course, I was glutened yesterday, I think it was the salad bar, or maybe the Del Taco fries.
