NSF Science-Based Gluten-Free Certification Program Meets New FDA Gluten-Free Regulation, Providing a Label Consumers, Food Manufacturers and Restaurants Can Trust
Date:9/17/2013

portant for those with celiac disease and gluten intolerance.

“NSF International has nearly 70 years of experience in developing standards and certifying products to these standards. NSF has brought this same rigor to the gluten-free category with comprehensive annual inspection, ingredient verification, random product testing and on-site audits,” said Jaclyn Bowen, General Manager of NSF International Agriculture and QAI (Quality Assurance International), an NSF International Company.

“This truly independent approval process meets the FDA gluten-free labeling regulation to fill the gap between unsubstantiated claims and consumer demand for bona fide gluten-free products. In a sea of unsubstantiated claims, seals and logos, consumers and retailers need a certification that is science-based and verified through inspections and product testing,” said Bowen. “NSF International’s gluten-free label brings transparency and trust to people who need gluten-free foods as part of maintaining their healthy diet, and provides essential brand protection and assurance to the food producers, retailers and restaurants seeking to meet the needs of these consumers and the new regulation. Parts of the FDA regulation are still being clarified. NSF will continue to monitor the regulation to ensure our certification program remains consistent with their requirements.”
