#726366 Fda Seeks Comments From Super-Sensitive Celiacs

Posted by U Gluten Free on 29 August 2011 - 02:02 PM

As part of the current review of proposed "gluten-free" labeling, the FDA has asked for input from celiacs who are highly-sensitive. From the Federal Register p. 46675-6:
Federal Register V. 76 No. 149

A couple of quotes:

We recognize that there are highly sensitive individuals with celiac disease who may not be fully protected if they consume foods containing a trace level of gluten above 0.01 ppm but below 20 ppm. Therefore, we are seeking comments on whether a ''gluten free'' claim based on a < 20 ppm threshold should be accompanied by a qualifying statement.

and

FDA is interested in receiving data and comments that will help identify the proportion of the population of individuals that may experience adverse health effects as a result of exposure at levels of gluten between 0.01 ppm and <20 ppm.

Other than some of the members of this sub-forum, does anyone have any information about the size of this minority?
