When is gluten free not gluten free?

Okay short post but one that I need to express.

I was a bit perturbed last week to be made ill by a Free From product, an own brand gluten free muesli from one of the big supermarkets – the one beginning with A.

Now I know oats can cause an allergic reaction as they’re often grown and processed near wheat products and Avenin can cause problems for coeliacs.

But a product labelled gluten free should be okay for a coeliac? I thought so too.

In small copy, on the side of the bag though is a warning – that the cereal may not be suitable for coeliacs. My eagle eyed daughter spotted this when I prised myself off the toilet.

Buyer beware.
