For 6 years the FDA has been weighing if and how to regulate gluten-free labeling for packaging. One of the main questions was how much trace gluten to allow in products called “gluten-free.” Typically the medical establishment calls it at 20 PPM (parts per million) but many celiacs and people with non-celiac gluten sensitivity can’t tolerate anywhere near that. It is a victory in that there will be clear regulations but there are some folks in our community who are a bit disappointed that they didn’t call it at 5, or 10 PPM. Here’s a video I made this morning explaining a little more about the new gluten-free labeling regulations. Feel free to post any questions in the comments!
