That sounds like it should be OK, but anything I haven't made myself is always suspect! DO you have the package to call the company? That is your best bet.

Edit: Silly me! For whatever reason, when you said "trail mix" I read "granola". *sigh* I think I need more coffee LOL. Anyway, I'll leave the information about the granola here because it could still be helpful to you. As for the trail mix, again read the label carefully and look for hidden sources of gluten. To be honest, you should call the manufacturer and ask if it is gluten free or not. If it isn't safe, you can always make your own. Buy your own nuts, toast them at home if needed, and add whatever other elements you want. :)

Original message about granola:

If it is commercially produced, you need to read the label carefully. There could be gluten in any binders used to hold things together, if there is "caramel color" then it probably has gluten in it because caramel color is made from barley, which contains gluten.

Also, does it say whether or not the oatmeal is certified gluten free? Unless it is certified gluten free, the oatmeal is probably contaminated as most oats are grown with wheat and/or processed with wheat.

To be sure, if there is a customer service phone number on the package, call and ask if the granola is gluten free. If it turns out that the granola is not GF, let me share with you my GF granola recipe. Be sure to use certified GF oatmeal when making it.

You can order GF oatmeal from Bob's Red Mill if you can't find it locally:

ok, I've been doing this for a few days (and feel better BTW ) but I have a trail mix (no granola just nuts, fruit and chocolate) - it contains peanutss m&ms, almonds, raisins and cashews - nothing special has been done to the nuts

is it save to have it stil - I know i've read that roasted nuts can be a problem
