At our last Meet-Up at Maggianos, many of you were questioning the safety of the blue cheese on the Chopped Salad. I hope that I calmed many of your fears at the event, but just in case, here's some new guidelines from the Canadian Celiac Association based on actual testing of product:
The Canadian Celiac Association [CCA] has recently investigated a variety of
blue cheese on the market and found that very few are made using bread mold,
and when they are, the test results completed by Health Canada found no
detectable levels of gluten in the final product. The new CCA ?Acceptability
of Food and Food Ingredients for the Gluten-Free Diet pocket dictionary
lists blue cheese as allowed on a gluten-free diet.
