Gluten-Free Food Labelling
When you are required to follow a gluten-free diet, it can be difficult to navigate food labels. While Canada is one of the better regulated countries, there is still an overuse or misuse of precautionary labelling. CCA led a market research survey in May 2019 and it highlighted the confusion for gluten-free consumers.
Check out our updated gluten-free labelling guide at the link below – released November 2021. And watch our dietitian, Nicole Byrom, provide a presentation on how to use the guide, at the YouTube video below.
Thanks to our dedicated volunteer Registered Dietitian Working Group for their time and dedication to put this resource together for gluten-free Canadians.
