Gluten Free Food Critic

Gluten Free
Gluten Free Food Critic’s goal is to help you save time and money by reviewing gluten free food products and letting you know which ones are worth buying. We appreciate the companies that make gluten free products but some of these companies’ products are just horrible. If you have ever bought an expensive gluten free product and have been very disappointed, this is the website for you.

We also review restaurants that have gluten free menus or have catered to our gluten free needs.

If you are a food manufacturer or restaurant that would like your product reviewed please contact us at reviews@glutenfreefoodcritic.com

FDA sets ‘gluten-free’ labeling standards

https://www.federalregister.gov/articles/2013/08/05/2013-18813/food-labeling-gluten-free-labeling-of-foods

FDA Gluten Free Labeling
The FDA outlined products that comply with the new “gluten-free” labeling rule as:

  • Foods that inherently do not contain gluten (i.e. raw carrots or grapefruit juice) may use the “gluten-free” claim.
  • Foods with any whole, gluten-containing grains (i.e. spelt wheat) as ingredients may not use the claim.
  • Foods with ingredients that are gluten-containing grains that are refined but still contain gluten (i.e. wheat flour) may not use the claim.
  • Foods with ingredients that are gluten-containing grains that have been refined in such a way to remove the gluten may use the claim, so long as the food contains less than 20 parts per million of gluten (i.e. wheat starch).
  • Foods may not use the claim if they contain 20 parts per million of gluten or more as a result of cross-contact with gluten containing grains.

Manufacturers will have until August 5, 2014, to update their labels in compliance with the new requirements. Foods labeled as “without gluten,” “free of gluten” or “no gluten” will also be held to the same standard.

Dow has developed a plant-based cellulose that mimics gluten.

Dow has developed a plant-based cellulose that mimics gluten attributes and helps gluten-free bread, pasta and dough taste more like the real thing.

I am interested to see what improvement this makes on gluten free products.
