1 in 133, which was named after the one person in one-hundred thirty three that have Celiac Disease, was created to help bring awareness to the lack of gluten-free food labeling standards and to get the FDA to mandate labeling of all potential harmful ingredients, including barley and rye.
I’ll give you the basics, then read the full press release for yourself.
The FDA was was tasked with setting a standard for gluten-free food labeling seven years ago and they still haven’t done so. What does this mean to you?
- Until the FDA sets a governmental standard for gluten-free labeling, it’s impossible to tell what the ‘gluten-free’ label means on a package of food.
- You could be eating food that contains harmful ingredients without knowing it.
What can you do about it?
- Sign the 1 in 133 petition – it only takes a few minutes. Then, share it with your friends and loved ones.
- Send a letter to the FDA.
- If you blog, share 1 in 133 with your readers.
This is important to all of us who are touched by Celiac Disease and gluten-sensitivity. Make a difference today and sign the petition.
