Gluten - Free Product: How to Prove & Display It Correctly
Duration: 60 Minutes
The gluten-free market is one of the fastest growing markets worldwide. For the 18 million Americans who suffer from gluten intolerance, gluten sensitivity or celiac disease, gluten - free products are a necessity. To help assure customer confidence, the FDA issued a final rule in August 5, 2014 that defines gluten-free claims across the food industry. To enforce the final rule, FDA may use its full range of routine post-market monitoring activities, including periodic inspections of manufacturer's facilities, food label reviews and gluten analyses of food samples.
Why Should you Attend:
This webinar will highlight how to properly declare gluten-free foods in labelling, Good manufacturing practices (GMPs) and third - party gluten-free certification. This presentation will also give the participants an inside out knowledge on what is gluten?, examinations of how the FDA defines the term "gluten-free", conducting a food label review, gluten - free labelling globally and detection of gluten in food systems.
Objectives of the Presentation:
The objective of this webinar is to provide an overview of the scientifically valid methods available for conducting gluten testing to ensure that the foods labelled gluten-free do not contain 20 ppm or more gluten. In addition, the session will highlight the various considerations available for manufacturers to credibly support gluten - free claims, including quality management systems and good manufacturing practices (GMPs) to demonstrate that products reproducibly meet the requirements of the rule.
