Product Warning: Whole Foods Flaxseed

Season 1, Ep. 1116

From Gluten Free Watchdog: Product Warning for Whole Foods 365 organic whole flaxseed for errant grain. This product is NOT labeled gluten-free. The grains in the photo appear to be wild oats but it is hard to know for sure without physically examining and testing them.

Under U.S. standards, flaxseed is allowed to contain a certain percentage of “other” grain, including wheat, barley, rye, oats, and wild oats. The same information also applies to other grains, seeds, and legumes. This is why it is very important to choose (whenever possible) naturally gluten-free grains, etc. that are labeled gluten-free.
