Is Your Food Really Gluten Free?
Gluten seems to be on everyone's minds these days.

And it should be.

More than 3 million Americans are diagnosed with Celiac disease, thousands are sensitive to gluten, and a new trend in gluten-free dieting has risen over the past few years.

More consumers are questioning the standards of the various "gluten-free" products on the market. For those who must maintain a gluten-free diet, good news has risen from the Food and Drug Administration, which recently announced a new standard for gluten-free foods.

Get clear on the terms "without gluten," "free of gluten," "gluten-free," "made with no gluten-containing ingredients," and "not made with gluten containing ingredients."

By becoming aware of the laws and rules when it comes to labels or restaurant menus, you can help keep yourself and your loved ones safe.
