GLUTEN-FREE LABELING

Gluten Free blog.jpg

In August 2013, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) set a new standard for gluten - free labels. Food products containing the “gluten - free” label won’t technically be free of wheat, rye and other derivatives. However, manufacturers are required to produce food products that contain less than 20 parts per million of gluten. For the estimated 3 million people living with Celiac Disease, the new compliance rules makes it easier for consumers shopping on gluten - restricted diets.

Between July of 2015 and August of 2016, the FDA sampled products labeled “gluten free.” They found that the majority of companies fell below the 20 parts per million gluten mark, containing .7 percent gluten. The study conducted by the FDA concludes that companies are taking gluten free labeling seriously so people with celiac disease can manage their health. On average, Americans spent more than $4 billion dollars on gluten - free foods last year, giving an economic boost to the food industry.
