What Does Gluten Free Mean? Ask.com is the latest company to get into the Gluten Free game by adding a new commercial this Spring.  Two Cowboys in a classic showdown and the big question … What Does Gluten Free Mean?

People who have Celiac Disease and Gluten Intolerance have a reaction to the protein found in wheat, barley and rye.  The only thing that can be done is to avoid this reaction and adhere to a strict Gluten Free diet. Although oats are naturally Gluten Free, most are grown or processed with wheat.  Please read the label to make sure that your product says Certified Gluten Free oats, or that this is a Certified Gluten Free product.

Products that have the Certified Gluten Free symbol have the highest standard of safety. Some products may claim to be Gluten Free but are processed in a factory containing wheat. For people with Celiac Disease, Gluten Intolerance, Wheat Allergies, please be aware and be cautious of consuming those products.

I love seeing fun, positive commercials highlighting living Gluten Free.  It helps to get people talking and create more awareness. Happy Celiac Awareness Month!
