I know this sounds strange but I am making a lasagna for a celiac and the bag of coles grated tasty cheese has a caking agent in it. So how do I know if there is gluten in the anti-caking agent.
How do I know if something is gluten free without it saying?
(I did buy gluten free lasagna sheets and I checked with the pasta sauce).

Easier to buy a block of cheese that is gluten free and grate it yourself.

Wheat and gluten must be disclosed if they are used in the anti caking agent. If they are not listed you are fine.
I’m a coeliac of 10+ yrs.
ETA here is how you know

Oh and just in case no one has told you, you’ll need to cook the lasagne *at least* 30 minutes in the oven for the sheets to soften if they’re dried ones. Learned that the hard way ....

Thank you so much. I really don't know that much about gluten or being a celiac even though it is common.
Splashing Rainbows I actually got the gluten free lasagna sheets do i really need to cook it that long?

Can you soften the dried sheets in hot water first?
Yes I could. The label says cook for 45 minutes so if Splashing Rainbows says so I will do so. However I hadn't read that bit until SR suggested it.
It is to take away for a dinner on a weekend away. It wouldn't be much of fun weekend if she has a tummy upset.
I hate cooking for others. I would hate for her (or anyone) to feel repercussions of my poor cooking. I try to understand this stuff but I am really hopeless at cooking let alone extra stuff being in the mix. I don't want to be the person who stuffs things up.

Yeah the sheets are super hard and need a long cook time to soften - sorry!
I am sure she will appreciate the effort you have gone to.

Gluten free lasagne sheets never work for me (apart from when you could get the Latina fresh which sadly they don’t make anymore). It’s always inedibly bad and I don’t try anymore. Perhaps make it with a good brand of gf pasta as a bake instead?
I would grate fresh cheese. However I have used a bag one once with no gluten issues.
