Hidden Gluten Bombs in Our Food

I got the most of them - licorice, vegie seasonings and canned soups but french fries....and medications?
2) French fries – Where does gluten lurk amongst the potatoes and corn oil? If the restaurant deep fries anything seasoned or breaded, then your French fries are thwarted by cross contamination. As a double whammy, many fast food fries today are dipped in all sorts of batters with questionable ingredients and seasonings that also contain gluten. Here’s another snack truth; flavored chips are also gluten bombs. Their “magical” seasonings sabotage your gluten free attempts every time.

3) Medications - Many medications use gluten as a binder to hold ingredients together — and, they may not let you know. In fact, generic medications don’t follow the same guidelines for reporting fillers as do brand name medications. Read this How to Protect Yourself from Hidden Gluten in Medications article to learn more. It points out that to truly be sure, contact the manufacturer. Of course, some supplement manufacturers use gluten-containing fillers, starches, and binding agents, too. However, reputable supplement companies will list the possible inclusion of gluten on the label. As always, buy the highest quality supplements that fit within your budget.
