Those who are avoiding gluten in their diets know the obvious foods to avoid, such as rye, wheat and barley as well as flour-based breads, bagels, cookies, cereals and the like. Those with Celiac Disease and gluten sensitivities, who must try to avoid even minute amounts of gluten, know that gluten lurks in many products that might surprise the rest of us. Did you know that condiments such as ketchup, mustard and soy sauce often contain gluten? Gluten may also be found in many other foods such as yogurt, candy, soda, canned soups, frozen vegetables and ice cream.
