Naturally gluten free..is it really gluten free?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

As a person with celiac my question is is food that's labeled "naturally gluten free" really gluten free? I've done some searching on google to no avail. I know naturally gluten free means it naturally has no gluten. But does it adhere to gluten free standards of 20 parts per million? Does it have to be tested to be labeled this? Can this mean it's stored in or stored with gluten containing foods?

There is no standard for gluten content, and no testing is required. It can be stored with gluten-containing foods in the same warehouse, in the same section of the store, etc. If there is known direct contact, then the label is misleading--that is not permitted in Canada or the US.

Diagnosis by biopsy of practically non-existent villi; gluten-free since July 2000. I was retested five years later and the biopsy was normal. You can beat this disease!
