Do you have a gluten intolerance? Then you know how debilitating this condition can be, especially when symptoms start to flare-up. It can make your life very uncomfortable.
Plus, the more you learn about gluten intolerance the more you realize that gluten is often hiding in foods that you least expect!
This can make it difficult to shop for food as you have to spend time reading the ingredients list of each product. Not to mention how awkward your social interactions become, as the list of foods that you can eat becomes shorter and shorter.
The worst part is that gluten often sneaks up on you when you least expect it, despite the fact that an increasing number of brands and companies endeavor to offer gluten-free versions of the most popular foods and snacks.
Still, if you come across the following foods, be sure to do a double-take at the ingredients list or avoid them if you’re in public because they might be hiding a large amount of gluten:
- Canola oil
- Hot dogs
- Ketchup (yep, ketchup can contain a sneaky amount of gluten)
- Snack chips (this will save you from eating junk food anyway)
- Rice mixes (convenience is not so great after all)
