Enjoy the Hot August Specials this week… and stay tuned we’ll have new deals throughout the month: https://gfspecialty.wordpress.com/2013/08/10/hot-august-specials/

FDA Gluten Free Law Update:

We’ve been reading up on the FDA specifications on the new gluten free label. You can read a copy on our bulletin board or pull up the information yourself here: http://www.fda.gov/Food/GuidanceRegulation/GuidanceDocumentsRegulatoryInformation/Allergens/ucm362880.htm

Highlights include:
1. The law goes into place in 30 days
2. Gluten free products cannot contain gluten grains (though they can contain gluten containing grasses… which is bad)
3. Food will be regulated at 20ppm (research shows 3-5ppm would be a better)
4. Manufacturers have 12 months to comply to the regulations
5. Only food and dietary supplements will be regulated (alcohol & meat containing products including pizza… could remain un-regulated).
