EU Legislates On ‘Gluten-Free’ Labelling

The EU has passed new food labelling legislation aimed at protecting people with coeliac disease, reports the Anaphylaxis Campaign. In future people seeing food labelled ‘gluten-free’ will know that the finished product does not contain gluten exceeding 20 parts per million — a level thought to be safe for most people with coeliac disease. The on-pack statement ‘very low gluten’ will indicate that the level is within 100 parts per million. Food businesses have three years to comply with the new regulation.
