FDA Defines Terms for Gluten-Free Products

The Food and Drug Administration last week released a new standard that will allow the 3 million Americans living with celiac disease to more easily identify foods that are gluten-free. Manufacturers have one year to comply with the new standard which may significantly impact the labeling of some products.

The FDA's threshold of 20 ppm from all gluten sources is consistent with the Codex Alimentarius labeling guidelines set by the World Health Organization and those adopted by the European Union and Canada.

The FDA noted that establishing a definition of the term "gluten-free" and uniform conditions for its use in food labeling will help ensure individuals with celiac disease are not misled and are provided with truthful and accurate labeling information. This was the only remaining rule to be finalized under the Food Allergen Labeling and Consumer Protection Act of 2004 and has been widely anticipated.
