Contains Gluten (US List)
I am in the UK, so don’t really have anything for this list yet but please if you can drop a comment with all foods where some gluten has been sneaked in I can help to make this a useful resource for folks.
If you are like us and doing your best to avoid gluten at every twist and turn then it is pretty annoying when it is sneaked into things like cooked turkey breast or green tea.

I am happy to do this for other countries so if anyone wants to maintain a page on the site for their country or just to send details over to me just get in touch.
