    Sorry, but you have it wrong for the McDonald’s fries. They use beef flavoring with their fries, which they say uses wheat. It may be OK for some folks because the amounts are small, but if you are sensitive enough that a crumb or two makes you sick then avoid the fries. Makes me sad … I loved their fries.

    Our 3 year old son was just put on a “Gluten Restrictive” diet. They believe he has a “moderate” intolerance to gluten. I was LOST. I have been scouring the net for days and finding lists of big words here and big words there to tell me if something is GF or not. All I wanted was a simple yes/no or a rating that I can go off of. Then… I found YOUR SITE. **Angels singing**. Thank you. Now, make an app for iPhone/Android/Kindle that does what your side bar search does and you will be my HEROES!!

    • theglutenfreebar

      Angella – you’re welcome! So glad that you found this helpful. We’ll keep building our index so check back often and maybe someday we get that app built 🙂

    are the Nestle Toll House chocolate chips really gluten-free? What I mean is, are they processed in a gluten-free facility? I looked at their website and couldn’t find any information regarding their gluten status. Also, what about cookie and cake sprinkles? It seems like most of them are, but are also made in facilities where gluten is present. Any sprinkles made in a gluten-free facility?

    • theglutenfreebar

      Hi Rachel. Nestle’s policy is to disclose any gluten ingredients on their packaging (even if it is within an “artificial flavor”). So while they may not be certified gluten-free, they likely are and I have not seen any reports of people feeling that Nestle’s chocolate chips contain gluten. We just don’t have the info on where all these products are produced, but Nestle *should* report if there is a chance for cross-contamination (i.e. produced in a shared facility) on their packaging as they have said that they are committed to providing that info to consumers.

    • theglutenfreebar

      Good question. I cannot find any info about this product but I do see that it appears to be sold in Asia. Do you have any product info you can send over?

    I have been sick for 30 years with all kinds of issues. I just moved to Las Vegas and needed a doctor. After 30 years of being awful sick She found out that I have Celiac Disease and internal damage done by this, As well as I have Toxic iron levels. She told me I have to go totally Gluten free and NOW! I left in a FOG because I had NO clue what this meant.
    After reading on the internet (because I didn’t ask her) my jaw dropped and I said a few “colorful words.” I was convinced my food loving days were OVER and after hitting 100+ website that only seemed to confirm my fears, I clicked one more link and POOF! HELLO!!
    A site that makes things SO much easier and I can look up what I currently use in my cooking and see what I need to change!

    My question is this, why are so many people falling ill die to a gluten intolerance?
    I believe we have been poisoned for years by food production relying in additives, chemicals, insecticides etc even in meat too. As for gluten free bread it tastes pretty bad and makes me more ill than if I eat normal bread as gluten free bread always use tapioca which obviously sends me to the little house! I live on meat and potato and veg I usually only eat once a day and eat plenty at that time. I miss sandwiches, bread with eggs, toast, pus almost anything else you can’t eat. I do eat Cadbury Flake because I read they were gluten free…I suffer from bloating to the extent it cuts my lung capacity and I can become breathless when walking so I drink Southern Comfort and cola which I have been told is gluten free I drink this cause its the best way to get rid of huge wind,,,make you burp…works much better than any other medicine I have tried and my Doctor said if it works use it…just one or two cans a night. I can be bloated on an empty stomach or on a full one…I have seen specialists for years and they are hopeless they do the same test where they scrap the inside of your intestine and thats it..and once you are branded with being gluten intolerant you have had it…no matter what you see a doc tor about they will just say yes its’ Celiac…I have been gluten free for years and I still bloat and get other symptoms. Its about time food producers were held to account for causing so many people to get sick in the first place, we need better standards and less chemicals and insecticides in our food!

    • theglutenfreebar

      Hi Paul – thanks for the comment and for sharing your personal experiences. I think many people are in the same boat and yes, it seems that additives, chemicals, etc are having some impact on people’s health (and things only seem to be getting worse). I think your main question around why so many people are now having issues with gluten is a tough one to answer – so many possible factors but one idea that seems to make sense is that wheat has changed – even over the past 10-20 years. Have you ever read the book Wheat Belly? If anything that book talks about what has happened to wheat and how our body deals with it – it’s an interesting read. Do know that we make some pretty awesome gluten-free snacks – free of additives, chemicals, fillers, etc. Check it out at and you can use coupon code “GFBBLOG” for 15% off your order.

      Bloating to the point of pain, I have lived with for 30 years. I have learned to stay away from anything with preservatives, ready made foods, etc…..I make everything at home from scratch. Restaurants are my worst enemy, and lactose free dairy helps also. I eat Rye bread and not your typical, run of the mill white or whole wheat bread.

      • theglutenfreebar

        Thanks for sharing your experience Frances – sounds like you have figured a few things out over the years. Nothing beats eating simple foods made in your own kitchen!!

    • Nancy Miley

      My husband has found that Udi’s bread is pretty good if that helps you at all. Also, if you have a bread machine you can make gluten free bread and not use tapioca if that is a problem for you. I use to do that in the beginning, but since we have found Udi’s bread don’t do as much of the homemade as I use to. Good luck

  • Elaine

    Daughter was recently diagnosed with celiac, and have just happened upon this website while looking to see if PB M&M’s were gluten Free. WOW! This site is amazing! I need to spend time going through it properly, but just this list alone is terrific. I’ve started making the necessary adjustments, but she’s moving out in a few weeks and will need to be able to shop, cook, etc independently now. Is there an app she can put on her phone?

    • theglutenfreebar

      Hey – thank you!! We’re glad we could help out. Unfortunately we don’t have an app (yet) but our site is mobile friendly and a quick shortcut is I hope that helps!

  • afish

    After being so sick for 5 or 6 months, no appetite, weak, not an ounce of energy, nausea, vomiting, etc., I happened to see a different Dr. the day I finally decided to go and find out, what the heck was going on. This lady was on it! She sent me for labs, colonoscopy, (because I have diverticuloses and 3 years ago almost died from severe diverticulitis and had 2 feet of diseased colon removed) and an endoscopy. I found out on New Years Eve Day that I have chronic gastritis and Celiac disease pretty bad. Since then, I have been reading a lot of helpful information online and I happened to stumble across this site. I just want to say, thank you! This site is fantastic!

    • theglutenfreebar

  • Patricia Wadhams Schnee

    Hi, I didn’t see sheep or goat cheese on the list. Can they be contaminated if the animal eats wheat? Thanks

    • theglutenfreebar

      We’re not aware of that level of contamination, based on diet, Patricia. But honestly we don’t know. Please let us know if you find the answer. Thanks and be well!
