Gluten-Free Labels Now in Compliance with FDA

From the Food and Drug Administration Consumer Updates page:

“In August 2013, the Food and Drug Administration issued a final rule that defined what characteristics a food has to have to bear a label that proclaims it “gluten-free.” The rule also holds foods labeled “without gluten,” “free of gluten,” and “no gluten” to the same standard.

Manufacturers had one year to bring their labels into compliance. As of August 5, 2014, any food product bearing a gluten-free claim labeled on or after this date must meet the rule’s requirements.”

The FDA’s Consumer Updates page has additional information on the label requirements and standards.
