FDA Proposes Gluten-Free Labeling of Fermented or Hydrolyzed Foods

Celiac.com 12/15/2015 - The FDA is proposing a new rule for naming and labeling fermented and hydrolyzed foods, or foods with these ingredients, claiming to be gluten-free.

This is a follow-up to the FDA's final 2013 gluten-free foods rule, which highlighted uncertainty in gluten test results when dealing with intact gluten.

This new rule is meant to serve as an alternative method for the FDA to vet compliance through records from manufacturers. The agency will accept comments starting Wednesday.

Under the new rule, the FDA proposes the following manufacturer requirements:

  • The food meets the requirements of the gluten-free food labeling final rule prior to fermentation or hydrolysis;
  • The manufacturer has adequately evaluated its process for any potential gluten cross-contact, and where a potential for gluten cross-contact has been identified, the manufacturer has implemented measures to prevent the introduction of gluten into the food during the manufacturing process.

The agency says the proposed rule will address distilled foods compliance through scientific methods that confirm protein's absence (including gluten).

thank you guys. I'm hoping the Gi will call back tomorrow. I'm getting the kitchen totally gluten free, except for a few things my sister who is a bit disabled is going to have. But no bread, flour, pasta and most other things will not have gluten. And my daughter doesn't go to school, she d...

Unprocessed food is great, but a life without chocolate no way! Am sure you will find a suitable brand. I don't eat Lindt, think they may use barley, others may know more. The Moser Roth are Aldi own brand. Looks like Aldi aren't in CR so not an alternative for you sorry. Maybe chec...

Ok guys, I'm not an expert. Maybe it was really just cc as Matt said. Or my body is just too sensitive now and this thing is too artificial/chemical. I feel that real unprocessed food is better for me now. It won't be a problem to find another brand. The Moser Roth doesn't sound familiar t...
