GENERAL
I support mandatory labeling of food for the presence of gluten or gluten-free status. Food labeling indicating gluten or gluten-free empowers consumers. People can monitor their own health and prevent illness when they are provided necessary information such as whether or not a particular food will trigger a food allergy reaction.
