Hidden Gluten

Where Gluten Can Be Found

Gluten Free Mystery

There are many common foods that may contain gluten but may not be obvious sources of gluten to some people. Here are a few examples:

Soy sauce: Many types of soy sauce contain wheat, which is a source of gluten. However, there are also gluten-free options available.

Soups: Some soups may contain ingredients such as wheat flour or barley, which are sources of gluten.

Salad dressings: Some salad dressings may contain wheat-based ingredients, such as wheat germ or wheat protein.

Processed meats: Some processed meats, such as deli meats and sausages, may contain gluten as a binding agent.

Frozen vegetables: Some frozen vegetables may be coated in a sauce or seasoning that contains gluten.

Imitation seafood: Imitation crab meat, also known as surimi, may be made with wheat protein as a binding agent.

Beer: Most beers are made with barley, which is a source of gluten. However, there are now many gluten-free options available.

It's important to carefully read labels and ingredient lists to determine if a food contains gluten. If you are following a gluten-free diet, it's also a good idea to check with the manufacturer or restaurant to verify that the food is indeed gluten-free.

This series of posts will cover some tips and tricks that I have learned about my twelve-year-old daughter's gluten-free lifestyle in the Boston area. Gluten-free eating can be challenging in any big city, but especially in Boston due to the high number of restaurants and availability of options. I've been learning what I can to make sure my daughter can still enjoy eating out, and I want to share what I've learned so that other families in the same situation can benefit.
