Gluten-Free Certification Program Launched For Food Manufacturers

June 13, 2011: 12:44 PM EST
Organic certifier Quality Assurance International and the National Foundation for Celiac Awareness (NFCA) have developed a gluten-free certification program for food manufacturers who are marketing gluten-free products. The certification is science-based and verified through inspections and product testing, the two organizations said, and leads to the issuance of a triple-verified gluten-free label that “brings transparency and trust to people who need gluten-free foods as part of maintaining their healthy diet.” The certification program involves sensitive testing procedures, stringent auditing and an independent application review process using  feedback from consumers, manufacturers and retailers. Included in the process are product review, onsite inspection, testing to ensure compliance to 10ppm or less and ongoing compliance that features random product testing.
