Suzanne Wolcoff works for the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and will share some insights and a different perspective on the background of the 20 ppm gluten free labeling law. Many of us remember and were even involved in the grassroots effort (www.1in133.org) to urge the FDA to adopt a standard definition of what is meant by the words “gluten free.” In August 2013, the FDA issued a final rule for that definition (gluten free = less than 20 parts per million) and manufacturers who want to label their products “gluten free” have until August 2014 come into compliance.
Join us to learn more about this process from the perspective of someone inside the FDA. It’s sure to be an interesting presentation and lively discussion!
Please bring a gluten free snack to share – be sure to include the packaging, recipe or list of ingredients for those who have other food restrictions in addition to gluten!
