Gluten Intolerance Group comments on FDA's gluten-free labeling standards

The Gluten Intolerance Group has weighed in with its comments on the Food & Drug Administration's proposals for labeling foods as "gluten free."
You can read GIG's letter to the FDA, along with with links to other letters sent by celiac disease advocates, here.
The groups are supporting the FDA's proposal to lable foods as gluten free if they have less than 20 parts per million of gluten in them. Medical research has found that foods that meet those standards are not harmful to celiacs.
Hopefully, the FDA will approve the standards soon. It's been seven years since a federal law mandated that the FDA come up with a set of standards and four years since the FDA first issued a proposal.
