Dear Sirs,
Please consider the Australian Legislation when formulating the new Gluten Free Labelling. It can be found at:
http://www.foodstandards.gov.au/_srcfiles/Standard_1_2_8_Nutrition_Info_v75.pdf
in Section 16 on page 18.
The other Australian Requirements relating to allergens are found at:
http://www.foodstandards.gov.au/_srcfiles/ACFA91C.pdf
in table 4
No doubt these two sections can be improved on with further discussion.
Because a lot of Americans visit Australia and a lot of Australians visit the USA it would be very helpful to celiacs to have similar standards.
Thank you, Amy Feistel
