Brief Answer:
Gluten

Detailed Answer:
Thank you for contacting HCM with your health care concerns

You are concerned about foods that may have gluten in them. Any of the wheat and grain products will have gluten in them unless they specifically say gluten free. All wheat and grains have gluten. It is a sticky substance that binds the food together. So when reading a label if you see any grains like wheat, flour, rye, barley or oats they will contain gluten.
