  1. This list looks good. I would wish to make a plug for the growing number of persons suffering from Gluten intolerances and celiac. Wheat and gluten are found in a significant number of products across the board of basic breakfast, lunch and dinner items. The alternatives were always high but now they are becoming astronomical and unaffordable! These persons have a challenging life and need consideration in these types of policies. After all, like everyone else, they have to eat every day!
