The Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto has a specialty food shop for a variety of special nutritional needs. I just noticed that their website has a lot of information for people on a wheat free/gluten free diet. They explain how to use various types of flours and how to store them, etc. If you visit in person during normal business hours from Mon-Fri there's a nutritionist on hand to answer questions. A couple of years ago they gave me a list of foods with the major allergens flagged. (Ask for the "food finder" if you go in.) This way, you don't have to bother calling the manufacturer to ask if the foods are produced in allergen-free facilities. (Since El Peto's rice flour for instance isn't made in a nut-free facility, it is not marked as nut free.)

You can place orders online from anywhere, although it is much less expensive to go to the store in person.
