54. I just don't like to see people bilked because they are ignorant of the facts.
Edited on Sat May-21-11 05:41 AM by ElboRuum
Whenever this sort of marketing gets involved, it opens up the door for the food industry charging a premium for goods of dubious extra benefit to those who don't have the problem it's supposed to be assisting with. I am just making the point that "gluten-free" does not equal "healthier than normal wheat products" in people without issues with gluten.
