** Another spotted-in-the-wild example of gluten fever: gluten-free shredded coconut.



* The label on bottles of the mineral water brand [=Hydr8=] boast that it's completely free of sugar, calories and colouring. Of course, this is true of water in general. You might as well brag that "This novel from Random House all include words that you can read to get a story!" The only difference is, it's possible to make an unreadable book. If you've managed to make water that contains one of those ingredients without additives, it's not water anymore.

** A 2018 series of adverts for Herbal Essences shampoo commercial [[https://i.ebayimg.com/images/g/WeYAAOSwBRVadzVX/s-l300.jpg proudly proclaimed]] their shampoo to be 100% gluten-free. Even aside from the fact that ''of course'' it would be, gluten doesn't harm people with a sensitivity to it or coeliac disease unless it's ingested.
* A Scandinavian cookie brand boasts that their cookies, which are light brown like most cookies, are "free of artificial coloring." A scientist interviewed in the newspaper noted that this is nothing special, since for the most part, cookies aren't blue.[[note]]Brown could, however, be due to use of caramel or of Brown FK, both amongst the more dubious of artificial colours; but most brown bakery products are brown due to natural caremization.[[/note]]

* Sucrets once advertised that for sore throats, their product is listed in the Physician's Desk Reference. Yes, it is. Because the Physician's Desk Reference is a list of every medication in existence. "Listed" is not the same thing as "endorsed."
