What to consider when starting a Gluten Free diet​

Millions of people are now avoiding gluten. Some people avoid gluten because they have a gluten-related disorder like Celiac Disease. Others avoid gluten because it helps them feel their best. If you're not sure how to get started, check out our Guide to a Gluten-Free Diet.

Gluten is found naturally in ingredients like wheat, barley, and rye. It may also be found in other grains like oats due to cross-contamination. If you scan a food product with Fig, it will tell you if an ingredient like silica naturally has gluten or if it may be at risk of cross-contamination.

When searching for gluten free foods, look for a certified gluten free logo. In the United States, this means the product has less than 20 parts per million gluten. Also check allergen statements for the presence of wheat.

We've done our best to ensure this note on silica is accurate. When starting a gluten free diet, it's generally best to work with a trained dietitian or clinician.
