Coeliac Awareness Show 2023: CHANGES FOR READING GLUTEN FOOD LABELS

Changes you need to know for reading gluten free food labels with Dr Kim Faulkner-Hogg
Food Standards Australia New Zealand is phasing in new Plain English Food Allergen Labelling Standards. Currently old and new labels sit side by side on supermarket shelves. Dietitian, Dr. Kim Faulkner-Hogg explains the old and new changes as they specifically relate to wheat and gluten declarations in Australian and New Zealand products. All new foods produced from February 2024 need to be fully compliant with these changes. But food labelled under the old standard in December 2023 can be on the shelves until February of 2026, when the change-over will be complete.
