Food News


THIS SECTION IS FOR NEWS AND INTERESTING STORIES RELATED TO FOOD, NUTRITION AND FOOD PROCESSING. THEY ARE NOT NECESSARILY RELATED TO KOSHER BUT MAY BE OF INTEREST TO THE KOSHER CONSUMER, MANUFACTURER OR MASHGIACH.

The following information is from the Food Product Design posted on August 10, 2011.

FDA has reopened the comment period for its proposed rule on regulations related to "gluten-free" labeling of products. It has also made available a safety assessment of exposure of gluten to people with celiac disease.
The proposed rule dictates that foods carrying the claim cannot exceed 20 ppm gluten. This number was tapped based on the fact that it was deemed testing methods could not reliably determine amounts below 20 ppm. Also, FDA notes that this is the level that has been agreed upon for foods carrying a “gluten-free” claim in other countries. Comments on this proposed rule (docket number FDA-2005-N-0404) can be submitted on the regulations.gov website.
