Course Overview

If a food is not labeled gluten-free, does it contain gluten? This is one of the confusing elements of a gluten-free labeling rule by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration that went into effect August 5, 2014. This rule standardizes the term “gluten-free” for foods regulated by the FDA, assisting those following a gluten-free diet with making safe food choices and giving manufacturers clear guidelines for production and labeling if they choose to label their products gluten-free. Healthcare practitioners need to understand the details of the labeling rule, which can be confusing, so they can explain it to patients who follow gluten-free diets. A clear understanding of the rule among healthcare professionals will ensure consistency in recommendations to patients and clients.
