Gluten allergies can be serious, whether you’re just a bit intolerant or have Celiac disease. It causes symptoms like bloating, cramping, fatigue, diarrhea and general gastrointestinal issues; it can even predispose you to liver disease or cancer.

Because gluten is found in so many things, from food to beauty products, it can be hard maintaining a gluten-free lifestyle. Get familiar with the terms on this list, and make sure to check food items and products to ensure they are gluten-free before using or consuming them. The following ingredients have the potential for containing gluten or are made with gluten-containing products. While this is a comprehensive list, you may still want to call the company directly to get a complete list of ingredients, just to be safe.
