FDA’S Gluten Free Labeling PASSES

FDA’S Gluten Free Labeling PASSES. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) passed to standardize gluten-free labeling.  This announcement directly impacts millions of Americans who need to live a gluten-free life because of Celiac disease, gluten intolerance or other medical conditions (like me). This is a time to rejoice! Finally, changes will be made, and we will be able to shop without concern. I see light at the end of the tunnel.

FDA’S Gluten Free Labeling PASSES:

According to the 2013 Glutino Survey for Gluten Free Labeling, the FDA’s mandate satisfies the overwhelming majority (92 percent) of consumers who believe there needs to be a clear set of guidelines for what can be labeled gluten-free.

The rise in Celiac disease diagnoses and increase in consumers who eat a gluten free diet have heightened consumer awareness about gluten free living.

The FDA’s regulation mandates that in order to label a product “gluten free,” it must contain less than 20 parts per million of gluten – or .002 percent of gluten.  Prior to today, there was no regulated threshold for how much gluten could be in a product labeled gluten free.

Two of my personal favorite brands “Glutino and Udi’s products currently contain less than 10 parts per million of gluten, which is well below the guidelines announced by the FDA,” said Steve Hughes, Chairman and CEO of Boulder Brands.  “Although this standardization brings no changes to the way our brands make their products, it does validate our commitment to provide consumers with safe, gluten free options that they can trust.”

According to the American Celiac Disease Alliance (ACDA), celiac disease is not age-dependent, or confined to a particular race or gender.  At this time, it is estimated that 95 percent of people with celiac disease remain undiagnosed.

Of course, I am one of the people who lives with Celiac Disease myself, so this news is pretty exciting!
