Going gluten-free? Gluten is not always obvious on food labels, so you'll need to get up to speed on gluten's many disguises.
When Katie Falkenmeyer of Sherrill, N.Y., decided to go gluten-free, the learning curve in front of her was a little daunting. Figuring out which foods were really gluten-free wasn't easy. But after a few trips to the grocery store -- and with the support of her nutritionist -- identifying gluten on an ingredient list is now second nature.
"It took time -- and a lot of ingredient label-reading -- to figure out what foods were gluten-free," Falkenmeyer says.
You probably know that gluten -- a protein -- is in anything containing wheat, rye, or barley. But did you know it's also in some less obvious products, such as lunch meats or soy sauce?
Here's what to look for.
