Celiac Disease Support Group

Celiac disease is an auto-immune disorder of the digestive system that occurs in genetically-predisposed individuals. It is characterised by damage or flattening to all or part of the villi lining the small intestine, which interferes with the absorption of nutrients. This damage is caused by eating anything with gluten (gliadin), a protein found in wheat, rye, and barley (as hordein).

I could be wrong on this, but you might want to re-read the label. From what I've heard it contains semolina, in addition to a grain and legume flour blend that has lentils, chick peas, oats, spelt, barley, egg whites, ground flax seed and wheat fiber. If those are the true ingredients, it's far from gluten-free.

This pasta in not GF...CalGal is correct. They even list wheat in the allergen section.

Below are the ingredients:

Slasher,
That's mostly what I eat the brown rice noodles. There is also another brand of pasta call bi-aglut but it's $10.99 a pacakge. Quite expensive but it tastes just like wheat pasta.

Best gluten free pasta I have found ( and I eat alot of it )
is Tinkyada Pasta Joy- Fettuchini style. 2.49 14 oz pk.made of rice bran.They have a web site.
Alot of places have brown rice pastas. If your regular store doesn`t have them,try
a market like Wild Oats or
Trader Joes, or an Asian Market. Or check the Asian aisle in a reg store and try some of the Asian rice noodles. Or you can order them online. But the ones at Trader Joe`s are only 1.79 for 1 lb.
