I have been getting a lot of questions about Gluten. So here is the official answer. I hope this clears it up.
By the way, I frequently do a blood test on patients and athletes for food sensitivities. This is a great way to improve your health by eliminating foods, sweeteners, dyes etc that are causing problems in your system that you may not even be aware of. Gluten frequently comes up as a problem for many people and when they eliminate the things that are problems, they feel and perform much better.
Currently in the US there is not a “Gluten Free” standard that the FTC or FDA has adopted.
The European standard is less than 25 parts per million. The issue in the US is that it is impossible to harvest the grains and store them in a silo, etc. and have zero parts present. The consensus is, the US is going to adopt the European model at 25 parts per million.
Currently there are companies in the US who claim to be Gluten Free, but if tested will have some trace amount detected and since the US does not have a standard, these companies who claim to be Gluten Free, even with a trace element, is causing issues for them.
At XCAP, our product 4Ever Greens, meets the European model to contain less than 25 parts per million.
