Gluten Free Certification (GFC)
IQC-The ISO Pros
Most of us know the saying “We are what we eat.” What this implies is that if we are not on the regular intake or consuming healthy food, then we are not going to be healthy. This is one of the reasons why the term “Gluten-Free” was born. Gluten, contrary to popular belief, is not necessarily a bad thing for our bodies. However, too much of one thing can actually impose a negative trait.
What is Gluten?
Gluten is a general name for a family of proteins that can be found usually in grains which include:
In its simplest terms, Gluten is the element in food that helps it maintain its shape – it’s what acts as the main shape-holder of food.
Can You Eat Without Gluten?
The proteins found in Gluten can actually be acquired through other sources – so you can actually be Gluten-free while still maintaining a healthier and better diet.
This is actually one of the reasons why some companies and organizations apply for a Gluten-Free Certification.
Gluten-Free Certification: What is it?
Gluten-Free Certification is the process that has been designed to help protect consumers that a certain type of food is free from Gluten. There are people who are not susceptible to receiving Gluten. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is the body of an organization that certifies a certain product as Gluten Free. They are the organization that labels products as Gluten-Free and they’re the only authorized body of organization capable and adept in doing it.
However, there are certain auditing companies and organizations that can help you achieve the Gluten-Free Certification that you’ve been wishing to have.
Why Go Gluten-Free?
For people and consumers, they would prefer a Gluten-Free Diet because of the health benefits that it has. Some of the benefits and the advantages of going Gluten Free for people include:
- Reducing Gluten Sensitivity Symptoms
- Managing Celiac Disease
- Controlling Dermatitis Herpetiformis (DH) – a form of celiac disease
- Decreasing Inflammatory Risks
- Avoiding Thyroid Problems
- And many more
Because of this, many manufacturers, producers, and distributors go as far as they can to be able to produce a Gluten-Free Diet. In order for them to prove the legitimacy and the authenticity of their products being Gluten Free, a Gluten-Free Certification is needed.
From its term alone, we already know that a Gluten-Free Certification or a GFC is the certification of companies, producers, distributors, and manufacturers that they are producing gluten-free food, beverages, and supplements.
The Importance of Gluten Free Certification
Did you know that about 1% of all healthy Americans are affected and experiencing Celiac Disease? This translates to a figure of about 3 million people in the United States alone – 97% of which remain undiagnosed.
