Here's the Top 20 list of gluten-free Halloween candy, A-Z:
- Aero Minis

What does "gluten-free" on a label even mean?
Here's the best definition I've come across on the internet. It's from Hersey's website, complete link here.
Here's the whole quote:
"Gluten-free foods must contain less than 20 parts per million (ppm) gluten. Foods may be labeled “gluten-free” if they are inherently gluten free; or do not contain an ingredient that is:
1) a gluten-containing grain (e.g., spelt wheat);
2) derived from a gluten-containing grain that has not been processed to remove gluten (e.g., wheat flour); or
3) derived from a gluten-containing grain that has been processed to remove gluten (e.g., wheat starch), if the use of that ingredient results in the presence of 20 parts per million (ppm) or more gluten in the food.
Also, any unavoidable presence of gluten in the food must be less than 20 ppm."
Well, that's a gluten-free mouthful.
This blog is dedicated to eliminating the vast majority of gluten-containing foods from your diet so that you can beat the bloat and feel better fast.
