Eating Safely: Gluten, Celiac, and Allergy Watchwords

Those of us who deal with food allergies or who have been diagnosed with celiac know to watch out for the big-time offenders like wheat, dairy, gluten, or whatever else we may be allergic or sensitive to. But not all ingredient listings or menus use such straight-forward terms, and we need to outsmart the tricky terminology.

To help us, the good people at Enjoy Life (who make my absolute favorite chocolate chips and chunks) have put out an extremely helpful chart of common allergens and the terms associated with them. I got one of these at the gluten-free picnic I went to this summer, and I’ve taken pictures to share it with you (below the full chart are closeups so you can read it more easily). Hope this helps!
