This Saturday, September 6, 2014, Registrar Corp Industry and Government Relations Director, Coley Anderson will be attending the Gluten and Allergen Free (GFAF) Expo in Secaucus, New Jersey. The annual GFAF expos, now hosted in seven cities each year, have grown to be the biggest special diet consumer events in the United States since they began in 2007. The expos draw thousands of gluten-sensitive attendees and bring together hundreds of gluten-free and allergen-free vendors. Food companies should be aware of a recent change in U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulations that affects what may be considered a gluten-free product.
Until August 5, 2014, there were no rules for placing the term “gluten-free” or related terms on product labels, making it hard for the celiac community and others with gluten sensitivities to monitor their gluten intake. Because of this, FDA recently defined the term “gluten-free” for regulation purposes. Those who wish to advertise their products as gluten-free must now follow certain FDA requirements for gluten-free product labels. Registrar Corp is an FDA consulting firm that helps food and beverage companies comply with FDA regulations. Registrar Corp can assist food companies intending to sell gluten-free food in the U.S. to ensure their products are in compliance with the new FDA regulations.
