A report recently published in The Medical Journal Of Australia shows, that Victorian Environmental Health Officers found numerous fake claims during their last, surprise visits, survey of food outlets. They were checking food advertised as gluten-free.
Their analysis showed that 9% were not compliant with the Food Standards Australia New Zealand definition of gluten-free. Consumption of gluten free food has become an unfortunate fad among many consumers, however it is the only treatment for those rare few with coeliac disease. An extended article on false gluten free claims is published on Opera Foods gourmet food Store.
Gluten free foods need to be manufactured in separate contamination free premises.
