Gluten Labelling Best Practice: How To Label Pre-Packed Foods Which Include Cereals Containing Gluten.
The introduction of the Food Information to Consumers (FIC) Regulation which
entered into force in December 2014 resulted in changes to the labelling of
allergens. [Regulation (EU) No. 1169/2011, as amended]
This best practice aims to provide recommendations to
manufacturers on how to label food products containing gluten through review of
relevant EU legislation, guidance notes and with reference to claims for
foods. Special consideration is also given to oats and wheat. This best
has been produced to illustrate examples of the usual and also more challenging
labelling situations of gluten containing foods.
