FDA proposed GF Guidelines

I'm highly concerned regarding many manufacturers neglect of understanding what gluten free means.  Instead of caring about an individual's health and well being, manufacturer's are watching the growth of consumers purchasing gluten-free foods.  Many companies are stating that their products are gluten free, while the label directly states that the product contains wheat, wheat protein, ect...  For more information on the growing number of companies labeling products as gluten free, despite wheat content, go to: GF Alerts

The FDA, back in 2007, requested that manufactures not label products that contain forbidden grains (wheat, rye, barley, or contaminated oats), as gluten free.  See Section: 101.91 (a)
