Gluten-Free Candy Canes!

By December 1, 2011

When you're dealing with the gluten-free diet, you probably realize you can't take anything for granted ... not even simple foods with ingredients that would appear to be gluten-free.

So I was pleasantly surprised when I started looking into whether candy canes were gluten-free. Turns out many of them are ... and that means there's one less traditional holiday food item we need to give up.

Despite seemingly safe ingredients, not all candy canes are safe -- some suffer from factory cross-contamination. But the ones I've listed in my gluten-free candy canes article meet government gluten-free standards. Happy holidays!
