Yes, cross-reactivity. I had no idea. In the midst of this, I had an appt. with the gastroenterologist at THE Celiac Center in New York, and unbelievably in explaining my symptoms, no query was made about that possibility, which now that I figured it out, seems incredible. I have absolutely eaten gluten-free (purportedly) for at least ten years, since diagnosis of celiac, but did not at all understand what "processing in a facility with wheat" could mean. There is a great YouTube video online, and once I saw that, I GOT it. The equipment can not be thoroughly cleaned enough,at least for sensitive people.
Since I have been reading labels a long time now, I firmly believe we have been completely duped by the food industry, and with Big Pharma and Big Agra, the only way to change the system is not to buy the products. It is only about money. Vote with your pocketbook.
Make us sick from the food; then heal us with the medicine.

I have discovered a wonderful non-dairy cheese at the health food store both Natural Grocers and Whole Foods.

The brand is Follow Your Heart. They have several "flavors" of their dairy-free cheese, which is vegan, lactose free, casein free, and soy free. The oil they use is coconut oil - how great is that!!!

Downside to this cheese is it has a bit more carbs per serving - 4g - than the other, Rice cheese I was using at 2g. But I restrict myself to a half a slice at a time. Taste is great - they have smoked gouda, provolone, mozzarella - texture is firm and pleasing, and it melts.

This is now my go-to "cheese".

Some time ago I gave up on the Rice cheese - they had changed their formula I guess because it was more like cheese spread - and impossible to slice or grate. Plus, their flavors don't hold a candle to the FYH brand.
