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 news is from the Foodmanufacturing.com and FDA on November 18, 2015.

The FDA is proposing a rule to establish labeling requirements for fermented, hydrolyzed and distilled foods that bear a gluten-free label. "There is uncertainty in interpreting the results of current gluten test methods for fermented and hydrolyzed foods on a quantitative basis that equates the test results in terms of intact gluten." These foods will be required to be gluten-free before the fermentation or hydrolysis and no contamination in processing. Distilled products will be required to demonstrate that there is no gluten in the final product.
