See How Many Products You Can Spot that Say "Gluten Free"
While grocery shopping today, I couldn't help but notice more products speckled throughout the aisles that included the words "GLUTEN FREE" boldly printed on the fronts to make it stand out. Part of me loves seeing these products next to their nonGF counterpart - but - in some cases, like the flour, I worry about the safety.
Ever notice how those bags of flour always include flour all over the outside of them?
How can it not be on the packages next to them? - and if the gluten free flour isn't in a tightly sealed plastic bag either, I'd be extra concerned about its true safety. Personally, I wouldn't hesitate to purchase the cookie mix, the tortilla crumbs, the pasta, the crackers, or the cereal, - but the flour? - probably not.
How about awareness? Do you think it helps others understand your diet or the fact that this is a diet that there is a growing need for?
