Brigadoon! Groundhog day! We get to do it again!

Well, so glad to see that Senators Leahy and Wyden, plus the others who put on that "awareness" thing in DC, may have had some effect on this FDA logjam !

I commented on the ruling and said I want gluten free* with an asterisc if there is up to 20ppm of gluten, with a clarification posted on the label.

We are looking for foods that are free from ANY gluten, which is vital to our health, not low in gluten. If several of those items are consumed daily they add up to trouble!

Once a person is diagnosed they are told to eat NO gluten. We have to rely on good labeling to ensue we are not consuming it.
