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