 Shocking Foods with Gluten

Shocking foods with gluten:  Over the holidays we were visiting family and someone asked if I wanted a Bloody Mary and that the mix they bought was gluten-free. I do not drink, so I passed on the offer but my brother asked if Bloody Mary typically had gluten. Yep, many mixes have Worcestershire Sauce (or the bartender adds a few drops to his mix) and that contains gluten.

Everyone should be aware of this because my aunt made stuffed mushrooms and claimed they were gluten free because she didn’t add any cracker or breadcrumbs but when I asked her for her recipe she said she added a few dashes of Worcestershire Sauce. This can be quite problem-some for those with serious allergies. So I thought I would put a list together for you, whether it is for you to get rid of all gluten in your life or you have a relative coming for dinner who suffers from a gluten allergy.
