Below is a link to the long-awaited guidance document to industry on gluten-free claims by Health Canada.
A very quick summary notes that products that do not exceed 20 ppm, and manufactured under ‘Good Manufacturing Practices’, are deemed to meet the intent of B.24.018 when a gluten-free claim is made.
This link will be posted on the CCA websites. We will also be taking efforts to inform the industry and consumer/patient groups.
