I have spent the last two years reading labels to determine if a product contains gluten or not. Although I am sure about the many items I use repeatedly, when I encounter a new product, it takes a lot of effort to comb through the ingredient label to decipher whether it is okay. Often, I have to look up information online to determine whether it is, in fact, gluten free. So it is with great enthusiasm that I recommend Zeer select to anyone who finds themselves wondering whether a particular item is gluten free.
ZEER select is a service that enables consumers to quickly and easily assess the gluten free status of 30,000 items in the supermarket. Not only does it tell you if an item is safe ("labeled as gluten free" or "appears to be gluten free,") It also recommends safe gluten free products for any item that isn't gluten free. ZEER uses an icon system to let you quickly identify which products are gluten free or not. Products are assessed a category and an icon is assigned depending on which category it falls into. The service costs $4.95 a month with 30 days free so you can try it out. Check out the ZEER Blog for more information on gluten free items.
