Your call on what you choose to do. However for future reference, Food Banks will accept opened boxes if the contents are individually wrapped, which I would assume these are.

​Market ploy, seen bags of microwaved rice as gluten free.....

​Market ploy, seen bags of microwaved rice as gluten free.....


It isn't a marketing ploy, its more to do with contamination from other products whether the rice has been grown near a gluten source crop or whether it is processed in a factory that may be also handling gluten containing products. Some people have severe gluten intolerance and the smallest amounts can make them ill... it is these people who will be buying these products on the whole.... likewise with gluten free oats... not naturally gluten containing but could become easily contaminated.

​There's gluten free products (including rice) that label gluten free and then say "may contain traces of wheat."

After reading pages and pages about gluten free (coeliacs here) and seeing people complain about how companies are cashing in with their labeling and poisoning ingredients.

I'm going to stand by the marketing ploy view on this one.

I agree totally that it can be very confusing and the current 'fad dieters' jumping on the gluten free bandwagon are turning gluten free into a marketing dream.
Meanwhile those of us who really are suffering are having to read and re-read labels over and over again and sometimes only realize something is unsuitable when we become ill.
I complete sympathize with your struggles, I have severe digestive illness myself which puts huge restriction on what I can and can't eat.... I keep my diet as simple as possible, but with misleading labels and so many ingredients with sometimes different names for the same thing, it can be a complete minefield

I thought that was just due to the contamination issue?

They contain similar strains to gluten, which can affect some people with coeliac disease.

alcohol and allergies / stomach conds don't mix, and yeah alcohol is often made with wheat - hoegarden etc

Its not just beer which is obvious and gin its things like rum because they add it for flavour and vodka

Any amount can send my asthma up and me to sleep, it's a nightmare gluten. Wheat, dairy, fish, poultry, soya make me ill, pain all over, tiredness, cognitive disruption. It's a nightmare shopping, I agree as the poster above, I should not need to be reading every label to ensure "MAY contain" from cross contamination because marketing plays a misleading role on the front of packaging.

Yup, allergens are a auto immune response, most people have one or two, and many to additives, flavourings, E numbers and the like, colds and flu can carry changes also that change the stomach balance so anyone can pick up food allergies at any point. Our individual DNA and how it responds to foods and bugs all play a part. NHS really should do a yearly health check that includes full blood analysis rather than dishing out reactive drugs that conceal the problems. I can't drink nor even eat tomatoes anymore, but this miraculous cure for a disease they the mediaeval (NHS)medical professionals don't understand what causes it is almost cured - fibromyalgia.
