Gluten Free Labeling Updates 2020
|Currently active Certified Gluten Free labels as of March 2020|
When you shop for gluten free products you're always taking a risk. Two familiar labels have now changed, so it's time for an update. Gluten Intolerance Group and National Celiac Association have both changed their labels. While NSF and Beyond Celiac have kept theirs. I can only speculate about why, but it's likely to be due to copycat labels that seek to fool shoppers with similar looking labels. The sooner we memorize the new ones the better.
Please join me in thanking the certification companies for making our lives easier and safer.

NSF confirmed that the labeling symbol above is the correct one (via personal email inquiry). https://www.nsf.org/services/by-industry/food-safety-quality/label-claims/gluten-free/
