I am vigilant about feeding my gluten free kids the safest of everything that I can find. My Gluten Free Teen seems to be particularly sensitive to minuscule amounts of gluten - truly anything above 20 ppm will make her sick.
In fact, she was recently re-tested and her TTG levels were elevated to 25. The doctor told us that 20 is normal, but I was crushed at hearing this. After rechecking everything for the millionth time, we came to the conclusion that it is the new boyfriend. They have been eating out a lot, but there is also a lot of smooching going on! (Yes, she would kill me if she knew I was writing this).
Not really knowing what the "rule" should be, we went with the common peanut rule - he has to brush his teeth and wash his face and no kissing for two hours after eating gluten. Thankfully he is a really nice boy and even eats GF when they go out.
I love the fact that these Jelly Beans are made in a facility that is free of all of the top 8 allergens PLUS gluten (won't it be great when the top 8 allergen list is actually expanded to include gluten).
