Enjoy Life Natural Foods First to Carry Gluten-Free Food Certification (GFCO) on Products

Celiac.com 12/27/2005 - Enjoy Life Natural Foods will begin displaying the GFCO certification mark on all 17 of their products beginning in December 2005. Enjoy Life has a strong commitment to the celiac community. We hear from consumers everyday, expressing how much difficulty they have identifying foods that are safe for their gluten-free diet, said Scott Mandell, President and CEO of Enjoy Life Natural Brands. We are proud to be able to provide them with the extra convenience and safety assurance this new certification provides. Look for more information about Enjoy Life Natural products and recipes using these
products at www.gfco.org and www.enjoylifenb.com.

Gluten-Free Certification Is HOT! The food industry is buzzing about gluten-free and GFCO.

GFCO has attended five food shows and exhibits with a total of more than 1,000 food companies since August. GIG, Shelley Case, RD and Carol Fenster, Ph.D. gave talks about the gluten-free market at three of these shows. Before we hit the show room floor, the room was buzzing about gluten-free products and gluten-free certification. The Food Allergen Labeling & Consumer Protection Act (FALCPA) and data from SPINS showing that Gluten-free product sales are growing at 14.6 % is making gluten-free a high priority in the food industry. GFCO is drawing interest from mainstream and specialty companies alike.

Yep, we really have it good when you think about it. The only treatment for us is eating gluten free. No pills, no chemo, no radiation. And there is plenty for us to eat, especially now with so many gluten-free foods on the market that are tasty. Labeling laws make it easier too. 20 years ago, th...

D3 should be taken every 3-7days not daily. It stays in your body for awhile and is easy to OD with causing nausea and vomiting.

I am only 7 weeks gluten free and it hasn't been that bad. I am a silent celiac so I may be glutening myself without knowing it. However, it hasn't been as bad as I thought. There are a lot of foods I can eat. When I have had to eat out, I bring my own salad. At home, whatever I prepare is gl...

Thank you all for replying. It's good to know that it's not just me. It gives me (and hopefully the other noobs) some comfort to know that it's normal for the ups and downs to happen. I keep trying to tell myself to be patient with it but it's so hard to be able to look down the road further than...

Thank you for your reply. I did make sure to keep eating gluten before getting tested. I'm still unsure whether or not I should ask my doctor to run the rest of the tests in the celiac panel.
