Company Certifies Gluten-Free Levels For Food Companies

August 11, 2017: 12:00 AM EST
As the market for gluten-free foods continues to expand, food companies need to be able to support gluten-free safety claims. Consultancy SGS provides three “gluten-free” certification levels. The crossed grain symbol gluten-free product certification vouches for 20 mg/km (ppm) or less of gluten; the gluten-free certification organization (GFCO) level assures 10 ppm or less of gluten and no barley; and the gluten-free certification program (GFCP) assures 20 ppm or less. According to SGS, allergen (including gluten) risk management should be a key part of any food safety management system, supported by good manufacturing practices (GMP) and hazard analysis and critical control point (HACCP) programs.
