At a recent shopping trip to Trader Joe's, I read a lot of labels. Many items that I thought looked like good candidates for being gluten-free had a tag line that, in effect, said: Our producers use good practices to avoid contamination with allergens. We make no guarantee that this food is not contaminated.
So, do I eat it or not? What does it mean: We try really hard but maybe we failed? Eat at your own risk?
I visit the nutritionist that works out of my primary care doc's office in a couple of days. She's not a celiac specialist (I still haven't heard back from the GI doc's office for celiac-specializing nutritionist referal -- grrrr), but her dad has celiac and she's helped him deal with it for 30 years. I expect she'll have a lot of good real life advice. I also want to get advice on B vitamins.
