Big Gluten-Free News!

By Hannah Tice

On August 5th, the FDA announced new rules for gluten-free labels.

What does that mean for you?

1. There is now one standard definition for “gluten-free” that companies must abide by.

2. Now, a product with a “gluten-free” label needs to have less than 20 milligrams of gluten per kilogram of product (that’s very tiny, indeed).

4. Restaurants do not need to comply to these standards. The FDA cannot enforce them just yet.  But we’re hoping soon.

FDA’s Deputy Commissioner for Foods, Michael R. Taylor, hopes that “honest and accurate ‘gluten-free’ labeling will strengthen consumers’ confidence in the products that carry it.”

We think it’s a great step.
