    That was my first thought too. Why would potatoes have gluten?

    I think you meant to say Fat-free? and not Gluten free since veggies are naturally GF

    Folks...Mashed potatoes ARE going to be gluten free unless you plan on putting Barley, Rye, Oatmeal or Wheat flour in them (BROW). Gluten is only in the above mentioned foods (and oatmeal is questonable).
