Please check out this info-graph!

Gluten is a type of protein that is commonly found in wheat, barely, rye, and oats. It gives these certain types of grains the elasticity/ability to hold together.

Some well known foods that contain gluten are, pizza, cakes, cookies, and pasta.

Some not very well known "foods" that contain gluten are, soups, seasonings, packaged meats, medications, condiments, and even candies and gum.

Know spoke before about cross-contamination. But think really people need to understand the severity of getting sick from cross-contamination.

Cross-contamination is when gluten like foods come in contact with food that is suppose to be gluten-free, or when it gets skin contact with someone who has Celiac Disease. The severity of this is that crumbs that do contain gluten get on food, or skin, it can be ingested, and make the person ill.

Upon thinking about cross-contamination. Some thoughts occurred. Such as getting cross contamination from dish clothes, dish scrubs, that are washed with same 'glutened' foods. Handling pet food with your hands, that contains gluten. Like cat food, dog food, bird food that could seem harmless. Items like toaster ovens, and skillets that contain hidden gluten. Of course most of these can be avoided by having separate cleaning towels/'scrubbies'. Washing your hands excessively when finished feeding pets/animals. Using different appliances that do not contain 'glutented' items. Just a thought for Celiac's out there, that are wondering about hidden gluten!

Have a good day! :heart:

I couldn't find the way to upload a new pic, so please consider this one.…

The picture is of a store-bought GF cake, but it reminded me of the GF & Soy-free recipe I had made years ago. So I posted a photo of the brand name (so others can find it) and my own recipe for others to try & bake. It's a winner, trust me.

P.S.  Im hoping I will have a really sugary treat for you guys soon - and before I forget, the August issue of Cooking Light (out now) has a mention about the Gluten-Free diet!

They ALSO mention that there ARE some gluten-free foods (commercial-made) out there that have more calories and fat than the regular kinds!

Food for to speak! :P
