"We're pleased to tell you that all Sargento natural cheeses except Blue Cheese are acceptable to a gluten-free diet. There's wheat gluten in Sargento Blue Cheese.

"Those on a gluten-free diet shouldn't eat the following Sargento MooTown Snacks: Cheese Dip & Cracker Sticks, Cheese Dip & Pretzel Sticks, and Cheese Dip & Crackers.

"You'll notice that we use microcrystalline cellulose, calcium carbonate, or potato starch as anti-caking agents on our shredded cheeses. When added to shredded cheese, they prevent the shreds from sticking together. Microcrystalline cellulose is a white, odorless, tasteless, totally natural powder made from cellulose, a naturally occurring component of most plants. Calcium carbonate and potato starch are also natural ingredients. None of these anti-caking agents is derived from wheat, rye, oats or barley, so they're acceptable to a gluten-free diet.

"The source of vinegar in Sargento Ricotta Cheese can vary, but it's triple distilled, and, to the best of our knowledge, no gluten is present."
