Glucose

I spent three weeks in Europe recently, including a week or so in Paris. I was stunned to see something like this on many many labels:

glucose (de blé)

This translates as "glucose (from wheat)." I have never seen such a statement on any product before, and it made me wonder just how many times I might have eaten glucose that is made from wheat.

According to the Canadian Celiac Association Pocket Dictionary:

GLUCOSE SYRUPS - ALLOWED
A purified concentrated water-soluble solution of sugars. Can be made from a variety of starches such as corn, potato or wheat. The manufacturing process renders glucose syrups gluten-free regardless of the source of starch.
