Gluten-Free Products may not be Gluten-Free

gluten-free-diet-more-energy-less-constipation-monrovia-caI recently drank some rice milk which claimed it was gluten-free. Over the course of 2 weeks I started getting fibromyalgia-like pains. I knew it must be something I recently started eating.

After investigating with the help of the Celiac Sprue Association, I found out that the milk contained a small amount of barley. Because it was a small amount the manufacturer didn’t need to include barley in the ingredients. The information was in the FAQ section.

My symptoms dissapeared when I stopped drinking the milk.

Buyer beware!
