Celiac.com 04/18/2014 - Confusion over the labeling of gluten-free beers just got a bit clearer, thanks to new guidelines by the The Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB). The new guidelines clarify the use of the term “gluten-free” in labeling for alcohol products. The Bureau announced that it would continue to consider gluten-free claims to be “misleading” if they were used to describe products made from gluten containing grains. Products in which gluten has been removed or reduced to below 20 ppm may be labeled as “processed,” “treated,” or “crafted to remove gluten,” if the claim is made “with a qualifying statement that warns the consumer that the gluten content of the product cannot be determined and that the product may contain gluten,” according to the guidelines. These guidelines are consistent with regulations set forth by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in August, which also ruled that alcoholic beverages made from ingredients that do not contain any gluten – such as wines fermented from fruit and spirits distilled from non-grain materials – may continue to be labeled as gluten-free. Craft Brew Alliance (CBA), the Portland, Ore.-based maker of Omission Beer, brewed with traditionally malted ingredients and then treated to reduce the gluten content in the finished product, issued a statement that the “TTB announcement regarding gluten-free labeling does not require changes in the way Omission Beer is labeled, or any other aspect of the production and sale of our beers.” Source: Brewhound.com.
This recipe comes to us from Ann Sokolowski. Preheat oven to 350F. Coat bundt pan or angel food cake pan with either Crisco or butter (do not use Pam, as it will burn and stick). 1 package gluten-free chocolate cake mix [for two layers] 1 package chocolate Jello or Royal instant pudding 4 eggs ¾ cup vegetable oil or butter, melted and cooled ¾ cup sherry [or amaretto or rum] Combine all ingredients. Beat with paddle attachment of mixer for about 2 min until smooth and well blended. Pour into prepared pan. Bake for 30-35 min or until tests done.[watch carefully because it can burn easily ]. Let cool in pan ten min then turn out on rack to cool completely. Warning: the aroma of this cake is not to be believed. People walk past your house sniffing and drooling. You can use yellow cake mix & vanilla pudding if you dont like chocolate.
