If it contains Matzo, it

If it contains Matzo, it normally has flour. Matzo is an unleavened cracker made from flour which is sanctioned by a Rabbi to have been dry until prepared, and in contact with moisture for less than 18 minutes before cooking. This insures that wild yeasts won't leaven it. The cracker is ground to make Matzo meal, which is used like flour, but has limitations in cooking because it has already been cooked, and doesn't react to recipes like the fresh stuff.. So Matzo is Kosher, but not gluten free.

To the other comment: There are gluten-free matzos. You can make them into matzo meals...

just FYI it's considered FLOURLESS, because it has NO leavening, which is the item we don't eat during the passover week. not because it lacks FLOUR. it's meant to be kosher for passover not gluten -free.
