Does THIS Have Gluten?! (Summer edition)

Summer’s here and so are backyard barbecues and picnics in the park. You want to see your friends and eat good food… but you’re worried about gluten with all those burger buns and pasta salads around. 

Unfortunately, avoiding the obvious sources isn’t enough if you’re gluten sensitive. For you, even small amounts of this problematic protein cause pain and other uncomfortable symptoms. And it’s hiding in some very unexpected places… including many of your favorite barbecue staples!

Luckily, you can keep yourself gluten-safe without missing any fun. All it takes is a smart, proactive approach to protect against gluten consequences.

Gluten Can Make You Miserable

Millions of people suffer when they eat even miniscule amounts of gluten. And if you’re one of them, you know how horrible it can make you feel.

Usually, the first gluten consequence you’ll notice is GI (gastrointestinal) distress. That can take the form of:

  • Abdominal pain
  • Diarrhea
  • Constipation
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting 
  • Foul-smelling gas
  • Bloating
  • Indigestion

But gluten consequences reach far beyond your gut. It can cause anything from brain fog to skin rashes to joint pain. So if you’re gluten-sensitive, you’ll want to avoid it at all costs. But to effectively sidestep gluten, you have to know where it likes to hide.

Pickles? Iced Tea? Ketchup? Gluten Hides Everywhere!

You do your best to avoid gluten… but that’s harder than most people think. For one thing, many foods you’d never expect to contain gluten actually do. For another, it’s not always easy to spot on ingredient labels because it goes by many different names. 

Let’s start with some surprising foods and drinks that may contain gluten. Did you know that gluten can hide out in:

  • pickles
  • flavored tea and iced tea
  • ketchup
  • beer
  • cold cuts (like salami)
  • hot dogs
  • premade burger patties
  • mayonnaise
  • marinades
  • salad dressing
  • seasoned rice
  • French fries
  • licorice
  • jellybeans
  • marshmallows

Plus, you’d think that you’d be able to spot gluten on ingredient lists. But it’s not quite that simple. Gluten has more than a dozen aliases that show up on food labels. So along with ingredients like wheat, barley, and rye, be on the lookout for these other gluten nicknames:



glucose syrup


natural colors

malt flavoring


modified food starch

hydrolyzed vegetable protein

textured vegetable protein



artificial colors and flavors

malt extract



And to make things even more complicated… Many people think that an effective GF lifestyle is as simple as sticking with foods labeled as “gluten-free.” But as studies have proven, even THOSE foods may still contain gluten.

Even Foods Labeled “Gluten-Free” May Not Be Safe

You shell out the extra cash for gluten-free foods thinking they’ll be safe. Then you’re confused when you’re sticking to a gluten-free diet but still suffering from symptoms. 

That’s because of this disturbing truth: You can’t always trust “gluten-free” labels

Researchers tested 5,624 foods that were labeled “gluten-free” and found that many of them weren’tOut of the foods they analyzed:

  • 32% overall contained gluten
  • 34% of packaged gluten free “dinners” contained gluten
  • 51% of gluten-free pastas contained gluten
  • 53% of gluten-free pizzas contained gluten

It’s frustrating and infuriating to do your best to avoid gluten and still get stuck with the consequences of unintended gluten. 

But there is something you can do to protect yourself against accidental or hidden gluten. 

How to Guard Against Gluten

If you have any level of gluten-sensitivity, it’s because your digestive system has trouble breaking down this protein.

The solution? Help your body process gluten more easily with supplemental support that includes:

  • Targeted enzymes such as DPP-IV and Tolerase G that break down gluten into harmless amino acids
  • Proactive probiotics such as Bacillus coagulans, Bacillus subtilis HU58™, and Saccharomyces boulardii that help your gut manage gluten more effectively
  • Betaine HCl, which increases acid production in your stomach to increase digestion and healing nutrient absorption.

Adding these to your daily routine helps you stay clear of gluten consequences… so you can focus on the fun instead of the fear.
