It should say on the packet I think.
And I think it does (but don't take my word for it).

Yes. It is made from wheat. It's why it is not recommended for very young babies.

I'm pretty sure it does.

It contains wheat, which should mean that it contains gluten too.

Have just looked at the box in cupboard. It says it contains wheat gluten and barley gluten.

As far as I know foods can be wheat free but still contain gluten but they cant be gluten free and still contain wheat if that makes sense.

Tis better to avoid wheat completely rather than believe the labelling and that the gluten has been taken out.

Glucose is the hardest - as sometimes they don't say - Strepsils for instance, but I had one anyway.
