FDA recently made the 20 ppm gluten free rule official. Companies have a year or so to comply. 

 

Will this mean that barley, rye and oats have to be declared under the new FDA ruling (like in Canada) or will it still be just wheat?

No.

The ruling only covers products labeled as "Gluten Free." It defines what those words mean. If the label does not say "Gluten Free," then there is no change to the rules. Under FALCPA, wheat must be clearly disclosed, but other gluten sources need not be.

In practice, rye and oats just don't hide. Barley can be listed as malt, or hidden in flavors, but seldom is.

Are there any plans in place for this to be covered? Would be nice to see the U.S. get what Canada has.
