Awesome News and a Giveaway! CLOSED

In case you haven’t heard, today the FDA announced its decision to standardize gluten free labeling. The FDA’s decision mandates that all products labeled “gluten free” must contain less than 20 parts per million of gluten by August 2, 2014. Awesome, huh?!

Before now there wasn’t a threshold for how much gluten was allowed to be in a product labeled “gluten free,” so this is great news!

Click here for more specifics on the new labeling.

Today also happens to be the 9th anniversary of the Food Allergen Labeling and Consumer Protection Act (FALCPA), making this day even cooler.

Don’t you think this calls for a celebration?! Yeah, me too.

And so does Glutino (they’ve been advocating for years for a gluten free labeling law). They’re going to let me do a giveaway of 5 boxes of their yummy Toaster Pastries to celebrate!

Have you tried these things, yet? They’re quite tasty.

(Did you know, Glutino’s products currently contain less than 10 parts per million of gluten, which is well below the standard announced by the FDA? I’m quite the fan of this company.)

To enter to win 1 of the 5 boxes:
