“Healthy” Gluten-Free Products Laced with Harmful Substances—including Gluten

Gluten-free products are laced with harmful substances including pesticides, glyphosate and even gluten, according to a new report by non-profit Moms Across America.

Forty-six samples of widely available gluten-free foods were tested for glyphosate, 236 different pesticides, gluten and various different minerals. The products included bread, pasta, carckers, snacks, flour, dessert mixes and chips.

It’s estimated that 6% of Americans, or nearly 20 million people are gluten-intolerant. Just over three million have celiac disease, a potentially life-threatening condition that requires strict avoidance of gluten. Celiac disease has been linked to glyphosate, a herbicide that is used in enormous quantities throughout the world, and especially in the US, where it is used on everything from lawns to genetically modified soy and corn.

Among the findings were that all but two of the 46 samples contained detectable levels of glyphosate. Just over 20% of the samples tested higher than 10 parts per billion of the chemical, which is the EU threshold for acceptable levels.

The highest level of glyphosate—a massive 2,963 parts per billion—is the highest level of the chemical ever recorded in food by the lab that carried out the testing. The product was Banza Chickpea Pasta.

Organic gluten-free products, which should have had the lowest levels of glyphosate, did not.

The most widespread pesticide detected in the samples was 2,4-D, one of the active ingredients in Agent Orange. King Arthur’s Gluten-Free Flour and Milton’s Sea Salt Crackers had the highest levels of pesticides, at 147 and 75 parts per billion respectively.

Equally worrying is the fact that many of the products actually contained gluten at levels higher than the FDA’s maximum for gluten-free products. Simple Mills Brownie Mix, Made Good Vanilla Cookers and Simple Mills Almond Flour Crackers all contained significantly higher levels of gluten than the 20 parts per million allowed by the FDA.

The study also showed that many of these products had extremely low levels of essential vitamins and minerals.

Zen Honeycutt, founding Director of Moms Across America, said, “The prevalence of glyphosate and agrochemicals in gluten-free food products made for people with conditions such as celiac disease is disturbing for many reasons, especially because it is avoidable.

“All our policy makers need to do is disallow the spraying of glyphosate and other agrochemicals as a drying agent, as the EU has done, and 80% of our exposure to glyphosate would be eliminated from our diet altogether. We urge food manufacturers to join us in calling for better regulation of the food supply.”

“The glyphosate contamination in these products should set off alarm bells, because those who try to improve gut health by switching to a gluten-free diet may be jumping from the frying pan into the fire,” said Stephanie Seneff, author of the book Toxic Legacy, which examines the effects of widespread exposure to glyphosate.
