PostSubject: The Hidden Gluten and Treif of the Food world   Mon Oct 15, 2007 6:14 pm

When I first started going GF, I realized this was very much like cleaning for Passover; it also is like watching out whatever and wherever you eat for treif! It is in so many unsuspecting places, and can hid under different names that it takes a full time detective to ferret it all out!



So I have started this thread to put any and all hidden treif and Gluten
products out there to save others pain and trouble and of course the commodity we never have enough of, TIME!

This includes, pork, blood, hair, and other unclean unmentionables!Razz

Be sure to check Pure Maple syrup bottle for a hecksher, the syrup is pure but it can be processed on troughs that are greased with lard to keep it flowing.

Pork products can hide under ' natural ingredients' so can bugs, hair, etc.

Aluminum foil can be processed on equipment where lard is used as a release agent.
