It does not contain barley and rye. It contains the water extracts of barley and rye, and that is a big difference. Gluten and Gliadin proteins are not water soluble. That means that all gluten and gliadin are left behind in the grounds, and get thrown away (usually composted). We test for gluten and gliaden using the ELIZA tests accepted by FDA and Health Canada, the results always show that there are less than 5 ppm of both in Dandy Blend. Standards in both countries are that 20 ppm or less is gluten-free.
