It is true that products made in factories may be cross-contaminated with residues of wheat.
Your best approach if you are very worried about this is to eat only whole foods. For butter, is Kerrygold (Irish) butter available where you live? If not, try to find a brand that is grass-fed.
Just stick to meats (not highly processed) plus whole vegetables and fruits for a while. Honestly, I wouldn't worry too much about butter or vinegar or olive oil UNLESS you react to something. If you feel you have had a reaction, stop everything but the whole foods then bring back one thing at a time and wait about a week before you try something else.
