I agree with the poster above about allergies. I have a wheat allergy, not celiac disease and cannot use shampoo that contains wheat - which a lot of them do! I dont ingest it but it causes a skin rash. The ingredients list on shampoos can be very tricky when reading for wheat since it goes by a lot of different names. In addition, a lot of foods that are naturally wheat free may get dusted with wheat flour to prevent sticking or have it added in some way - marinades, sauces, thickeners. It is very hard to eat out and eating takes a lot of research including called manufacturers, knowing all the botanical names of wheat,etc. I am glad these companies are taking notice of this and making it easier for customers.
I would be interested to know how wheat farmers and related industries are doing these days with the rise in popularity of gluten free products.
