For a long time, when I didn’t have time to make my own gluten-free bread or tortillas, I turned to Food for Life as a back-up source. It wasn’t often, but I did do it when needed.
GlutenFreeWatchdog.org recently tested two of their products that are labeled as gluten-free and both came back as containing gluten! You can read about it on the GlutenFree Watchdog Blog. Both the millet bread and the brown rice tortillas tested as containing gluten. To see the full test results including how many hundred parts per million the test showed, you’ll need to subscribe to their website.
I am now embarking on a major freezer cooking session in order to stock my freezer with sourdough bread and corn tortillas so I no longer purchase anything from Food for Life. I am terribly disappointed that a company that I have promoted and used since 2006 is producing tainted products. Although their sprouted corn tortillas were not tested, I no longer trust this company to show integrity after a product labeled gluten-free tested as having several hundred parts per million of gluten!
If you are gluten-free, please consider subscribing to this site to help support independent, third-party testing so companies such as Food for Life can be brought to light and celiacs can protect themselves from unethical companies who mislabel and mislead their customers. Continued exposure to gluten has known health risks that this company is carelessly disregarding.
