#923885 Gluten Free Certification Enforcement Aug 2014

Posted by on 15 July 2014 - 05:51 AM

The Gluten Free Certification Organization is finally heard by the FDA and this August 2014 the law for gluten free labeled food and beverages must meet below the 20ppm (parts per million) standard or they will be relabeled (to not have a gluten free or certification label) or removed from the shelves. It took 10 years for the GFCO (Gluten Free Certification Organization) to be heard by the FDA.



Go get 'em FDA! I'm tired of getting glutened!

#824799 Most Evil Wife Ever

Posted by on 21 September 2012 - 04:07 PM

Due to ongoing GI issues and other health problems for years I accompanied him to a recent appointment with his endocrinologist. When I suggested he may have celiac the doctor was all over it, when the blood tests were negative and I pointed out our insurance won't pay for a biopsy the doctor said he simply needs to be gluten free. So, yes, he is gluten free. Just another instance of how evil I am. :D

And yes, I am aware we technically could go a whole 2-3 hours without eating it's always been tradition to have candy or popcorn for a movie. It's just how it is, movie and a snack. Besides, you get in there and all you can smell is a metric butt ton of popcorn. If I didn't have a munchie I'd probably jump some kid and steal his popcorn or candy.

I totally understand the tradition for snackies at the movies. I use to, when single, wear baggy pants and sneak a ton in. Now that I'm married and was pregnant, I just whipped out the whole jar of peanut butter and a spoon in the theater and started munching and nobody bothered me lol They'd have to strong arm me to take my peanutbutter away :P
