Why Gluten-Free Americans Are Jealous Of This Italian Label

Gluten-free food items are gaining traction as more and more food companies attempt to cater to their customers' dietary preferences. According to Everyday Health, those who live with certain conditions such as celiac disease need to adopt a gluten-free diet and stick to grains like buckwheat, rice, and quinoa. Interestingly, the only way to really find out whether you are intolerant to gluten is to consume foods with gluten to find out how your body responds when you finally go in for a diagnostic test. (It's a good idea to ask a physician for advice, of course.)

According to SF Gate, following a gluten-free diet can be fairly difficult, especially if you step outside for a meal. Gluten can be found in unexpected food items, such as flavorings, seasonings, sauces, thickeners, and more. One of the best ways to be extra careful is to check the labels to ensure that you are only purchasing items that are cleared as 100% gluten-free. On that note, Redditors who follow a gluten-free diet are currently admiring an Italian company for its thoughtful packaging. 

Gluten-free Americans are quite impressed

According to a Redditor who spotted a bag of gluten-free flour from Italy, they were impressed by how much care the company took to ensure that it is indeed gluten-free. The flour has important notes on celiac disease and instructions for those who may not be familiar with gluten-free diet restrictions. For example, the instructions make it clear that people must be extra cautious while using different kinds of flour to ensure no cross-contamination takes place.

Another Redditor posted an encouraging comment and wrote that gluten-free diets are pretty serious business in Italy. They wrote about their personal experiences in the country and said that their server was extra cautious at a fish restaurant to ensure that the food was safe to eat. "The waiter specifically said what I could or couldn't eat from the platter (each part was safely away from the others)," they explained. Another user added that they wish they could see this happen in the U.S.
