Toblerone's halal certification outrages the far right

This is like when a bottle of gin specifies it's "gluten free," right? In that it was always that way, but they just added the label.


Not true, actually. If a gin says that, it means it was distilled from non wheat, barley, rye, or oat sources.

But all distilled alcohol is inherently gluten-free, even if it is made from wheat, barley, rye, or oat.


It's more complex than that. I understand in theory it should not have gluten, but there is no real way to test for it precisely. Some people do have reactions still to it. That's why the TTB won't let a liquor distilled from a glutenous source be labeled as gluten-free.
