It sometimes feels like there’s Gluten in everything and that can be very overwhelming. How many times have you accidentally eaten gluten? It can happen a lot it, especially if you’re new to a Gluten Free Diet. It even seems to happen when you’ve been Gluten Free for years. You can’t just assume things are Gluten Free. It’s in so many things you’d never expect. I’ve accidentally glutened myself so many times and it’s always awful.

Some Restaurants use pancake batter to fluff up their eggs. Ask your server or order over easy.

2. Imitation Crab


They use Wheat Flour as a filler, when they make imitation Crab. Lots of Sushi Restaurants use imitation, so make sure you ask before ordering the California Roll.

3. Canned Soups


Almost all canned soups have some sort of wheat noodle or wheat flour thickener.

4. Ice Cream and Ice Cream Cakes

Most Ice Cream Cakes and some Ice Creams have some sort of cookie or cookie dough in them.


5. Chocolate and Candy


Never assume that Candy or Chocolate is Gluten Free just because there aren’t Cookies or Wafers added. There are several kinds of Candy and Chocolate Bars that contain Gluten, that you wouldn’t expect to. Licorice, Smarties and Milky Way all contain gluten. It’s always best to read the label.

  1. Surprisingly (or perhaps not) gluten is found in most condiments! Take soy sauce, ketchup, mustard, tomato paste, BBQ sauce etc. Have had to turn to an app called GlutenCheck (it’s free) to decipher which ingredients are safe for me to eat.

  2. Thanks for following my curiositycafe.wordpress.com blog! I have two blogs, and I’m almost to the place where I can have a separate gravitar for curiositycafe. Really glad to find your blog, because my son, age 42, just found out he’s gluten sensitive about a year ago. You have great info in your blog, thanks!

  3. Be careful of pickles! Most contain Malt vinegar (gives the pickles the crunch). And is only listed as “vinegar” on labels! Just about anything pickled such as peppers, veggies etc. With CD wheat is only 1 of major issues…also Barley & Malt! Hope this helps!

  4. Your style is really unique in comparison to other folks I’ve read
    stuff from. I appreciate you for posting when you have the opportunity, Guess I
    will just book mark this page.
