    Exuper A celiac should generally be fine with rice unless you know for sure that person has a sensitivity. I have done a lot of research on this myself. It is usually just gluten from WHEAT, RYE, BARLEY. Oats you must be careful with too. Celiac can have trouble with dairy and soy also. The other foods are less likely to cause problems. With celiac the whole body gets messed up so anything is possible though. To answer your question though the only source i know that might give you greater breakdowns on foods is nutritiondata.com. Good luck
