I don't know if any of you shop at the Hillsdale Farmer's Market on Sundays but one of the booths sells a "Gluten-Free"(according to the label) mix that has rye, barley and oats. When I confronted them they argued that since the rye and barley weren't crossed contaminated with wheat then they were gluten free just like the oats. I understand that oats aren't necessarily a gluten grain. I think they are likening the barley and rye to the oat issue.
Please note that both rye and barely are off limits for celiacs and those on a gluten free diet. I would not recommend buying this mix. We are in the process of trying to find out more details about this vender and will advise you as we discover more. In the meantime it always pays to read the labels!
Thanks to those of you who are our eyes and ears on the street alerting us to situations such as these.
