Wouldn't assume so: There are many things that gluten reactivity predisposed someone to that interfere with digestion. The primary gut injury & episodic unknown exposures often lead to cross reactivity/intolerance to non gluten foods.Things like chocolate,cow milk,egg or corn can trigger immune related responses.Food dyes like #40 red & others can also trigger symptoms.Detailed testing can identify many.(Cyrex labs)
