Another valuable list! Have you found any list of non-celiac gf foods? By that I mean foods labelled as gf but found unsuitable by celiacs, whether by cross-contamination above the federal gluten allowance or by allowing gluten within the federal allowance but exceeding the tolerability for celiacs. Also, do you know of a comparison between the government limits and standards for various countries? I will no longer buy anything made in the US with the “may be produced in a facility where wheat is processed”(No one should every accept products as gf that are “processed on the same machinery” as gluten products!), but wonder about the more gf-friendly countries.

Of course; there are numerous products and foods that are gluten free and still bother celiac individuals. The issue, I believe is because they are suffering from something else such as Lyme Disease (false negatives), Candida, Bacteria Overgrowth in their intestines and numerous other issues that are quite difficult and VERY expensive (insurance does not cover) to treat and to test for.
