A few decades ago I had never heard of gluten, but now it is mentioned everywhere.
When I tell people I have food allergies they assume I can’t have gluten. (I can.)
Actually, people who react to it have a sensitivity, not a true allergy.
But gluten is mentioned often, and some of the labels saying products are “gluten free” are just, plain silly. I’ve even seen “Gluten Free” labels on things nobody would ever eat, such as soaps, cleaning products, and cosmetics.
If only everyone would be as careful about things lots of people truly are allergic to, like fragrances.
