Avoiding Cross-Contamination: Learn How to Read Labels

Learning how to read labels is an absolute must. Before you go grocery shopping, make sure you’re alert and not hungry so you can read labels carefully. When you do purchase gluten-free products, buy those that have been “certified gluten-free.” The GFCO (Gluten Free Certification Organization) certifies products that have less than 10 ppm gluten, the highest standard available for gluten-free products.

  1. I tell you, cross-contamination is my #1 problem when it comes to the GF diet, since I do so much traveling. I think communication is really key with this issue–communication with food companies, dinner hosts, and restaurant staff. People may think you’re “paranoid” or whatever, but I don’t care, I always ask my questions!

  2. Yes, you really need certification these days without FDA guidelines established yet for the definition of “gluten-free.”

  3. I also recommend memorizing a list (and also always bringing one with you) of the foods that are OK as well as those that are off-limits, so that way you will be able to understand the information in the ingredients better on food labels.
