Interesting because there's a company making some all-natural bars that contain both barley and wheat grass and I was concerned about them, but they are labeled as gluten-free. http://www.amazinggrass.com/about-whole-food-energy-bars.html

But, now I'm reading that unless they are harvested in such a manner that there is NO contamination between the grass and the grain itself (which the gluten is in the grain, not the grass), then there could be the chance of contamination. I had a sample of one of their bars recently and had some slight tummy irritation, but thought it had to have been something else causing that irritation because they are labeled as gluten-free and I thought that if something is labeled as such, it can't cause a problem. That'll teach me!

This is what makes eating GF so difficult, hidden gluten. I have been sick all week. It's so frustrating because I've been so careful. I was at a dog show this weekend in Albuquerque. I took fruit and nuts to eat. I didn't go out to eat while down there, but here I am "sick as a dog" again. If I reacted immediately, like Lynne, I could identify the culprit, but alas, my tummy takes a while. You also never know if maybe you are starting to react to something else now.
My current guess as to the culprit is the dog treats I was using in the ring for my dog. I'm at work so I can't go check the bag right now.
Thanks for the vent,
Wendy in NM
