FREE Webinar: Setting the Record Straight: Dispelling Gluten-Free Manufacturing and Production Myths

 

The gluten-free market is booming, and while that means more options are on shelves, it also makes it harder to tell whether a product is truly gluten-free. Persons with celiac disease and non-celiac gluten sensitivity know that a gluten-free diet is the only way to treat their conditions, but many find reading the nutrition labels of packaged products to be confusing. Why? While there are many conscientious gluten-free manufacturers taking the strictest precautions to ensure safe products, consumers still need more education about how to decipher nutrition labels. In a 60-minute talk using consumer-friendly language, Tricia Thompson, MS, RD, will provide an explanation of 20 ppm, discuss the role of food safety in gluten-free manufacturing practices, and clear up popular myths that bombard the gluten-free market.

Frito-LaySpeaker:  Tricia Thompson, MS, RD; The Gluten-Free Dietitian, Nutrition Consultant Celiac Disease, Founder Gluten Free Watchdog, LLC
