Health Canada's Position on Gluten-Free Claims
The words "gluten-free" in Canada now have a definition, according to Health Canada, the department of the government of Canada with responsibility for national public health.
The statement, released in June of 2012, follows the Codex Alimentarius Standard for Foods for Special Dietary Use for Persons Intolerant to Gluten ( Codex Stan 118-1979) at 20 ppm.
In addition, the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA), has released its procedures for enforcing these newly set regulations. Read more about the CFIA compliance activities and enforcement actions on their website.
