People who have gluten allergies can eat fruits, veggies and meats without any problems. Gluten is a protein found in certain grains (wheat, barley and rye). Someone with a gluten allergy avoids flours but can eat rice and potatoes and oats. Some people who have gluten allergies also have Celiac Disease  so they have to avoid gluten entirely or he/she be sick. Cross contamination is the problem – shared utensils or tools in the kitchen (such as knives, cutting boards and strainers)
