    Hello, I have a suggestion to make. I think it is IMPERATIVE for your business to label if a product contains wheat, gluten, barley, spelt oats or rye. Many gluten free people look for this label, but some do not. They assume that a raw vegan place is a healthy place and therefore a safe place. Being gluten free is not a moral-health choice like raw veganism. It is a life or death situation.

    Rejuvelac was listed as one of the ingredients in a product that I bought today. I was told that it was from "fermented walnuts" when I asked. After eating this product I had an incident of my ears ringing heavily. While I cannot be certain that it was from this product or specifically the rejuvelac I did some further research and eventually called you.

    This time I was told that "it is derived from sprouted wheat berries, but it shouldn't be a problem."

    A problem? How does someone else define a problem for me? You need labeling! Someone could get seriously hurt here. You could get sued by someone. My celiac disease is silent, it damaged several of my internal organs and I didn't know it until the malabsorption took its toll.

    Your product was delicious but devious.

    Thank you for reading this, now please label!
