GFCO Studies Gluten in Ground Spices

There has been some concern of late about gluten in ground spices.  Canada’s Federal Inspection Agency (CFIA) recently released a study investigating this matter.  The Gluten-Free Certification Organization (GFCO), a program of the Gluten Intolerance Group, is currently conducting a study to explore the level, if any, of gluten found in ground spices on the market today.   We have collected samples throughout the country and are testing them using multiple methods for detecting gluten.  Our results will be forthcoming as soon as the data has been received and analyzed.  Stay tune for information as we release it on our website.
