Do you eat gluten-free?
Whether eating gluten-free is a medical necessity, such as those suffering from celiac disease, or a choice, many supermarkets are adding food aisles and freezers dedicated to gluten-free ingredients and prepared foods. Gluten-free pasta, flour, cereals and bread, once only available in specialty stores, can now be found in local grocery stores and varieties continue to grow.
As of August 5, 2014, any food product with a gluten-free label must follow Food and Drug Administration requirements in order to be so labeled. The new standard helps eliminate uncertainty and people can rest easy that the products have met stringent standards.
