Issue Areas/Comments
My 5 yr. old daughter has Celiac Disease as well as Type 1 (Juvenile, insulin dependent) Diabetes. Treatment of her CD requires she strictly adhere to a gluten free diet. Clear labeling of Gluten free food would make our lives easier. I have purchased foods that have claimed to be "gluten-free", only to discover that they have a different definition of what that term means. My daughter's life depends on truth in advertising. Please help us by developing a clear and safe standard, and holding food manufacturers accountable.
