Uhm... 6 is 50% of 12... and 12+6 = 18? right?

anyway, gluten free mustard! as opposed to the mustard that has gluten in it?

Of course your math is correct though I suspect what the questioner was asking was "If 18 is 100% and 12 is 66.7% of 18 which means 18 is only 33.3% more than 12, yes?" which WOULD be right except for that smaller print of "than our 12 oz". THAT makes the questioner wrong because he begins with the wrong number for his base.

And the notation of "gluten-free" IS very important for those who suffer from celiac disease THOUGH that condition has been estimated to affect about 1.5% of humans. Large enough that food product makers have to worry about turning away a group of people who do not have any clear idea of "is there gluten in X?", especially for shoppers buying groceries for a household with a person or two affected by celiac disease.

On the other hand: there are NOW a LOT of people who have latched themselves to "gluten-free" labels as if celiac disease were a common problem for most or all people. But even if you were to pin them down and figure out that no one in their household has celiac disease, he can always retort with "Well, I'm getting it for anyone who might stop by who suffers from that, so there :p

I can't count the number of times I've seen "gluten free" printed on foods that don't normally contain gluten.

I see that and assume it's an attempt to "trap" dumb people on Facebook.

This is mustard, why would there ever be gluten in mustard?

I once saw a bottle of WATER labelled as gluten free.

I'd think that people that KNOW they suffer from celiac disease, know what to avoid, or not to eat something if they're not sure.

I believe that a lot of companies are putting "gluten free" on their product labels just because a lot of people think "it's good for you".

Flour is frequently used in various gravies and sauces as a thickener.

That is a bit silly. But have you ever noticed how many foods are listed as "may contain peanuts?" Food labelling standards generally apply to ALL food products, there's no "common sense" test. Which is why there's a nutrition info diagram on bottled water, too.

True. Of course, the problem there is that it's occasionally a lie. Only a small minority (people with actual gluten sensitivities) will ever notice.

Do it, it is. Ride the Cabot Trail on the way to the ferry too. I spent one of the best weekends of my life camping along the Cabot Trail, hiking up waterfalls.
