No, couscous is a wheat product and is therefore not gluten free.Lundberg Farms sells a couscous-like product made from roasted brown rice and I saw that item mentioned many times on the search engines. My internet research gave me little hope of finding ‘safe’ couscous dishes in restaurants.
As you may know, many of my titles have the format “Is this food gluten free?” This format is ideal for getting the attention of the computers that place articles on google and the other search engines. You may also have noticed that in every case my answer boils down to “Yes if you take certain precautions.” I have added a tag to all articles of this type so that you can find them quickly. To use these tags, scroll down to the end of this article, past the ads. You will will see the words “is this food gluten free?”. Click on the tag and your computer will create a special page containing the first few sentences of each of my articles that have the same tag. Click on the excerpt to read the complete article.
