Macro Greens and Miracle Reds Gluten Free Lab Certification

FAQ: GLUTEN-FREE

QUESTION: Any Gluten is contained in Macro Greens® and Miracle Reds®?

Independent laboratory testing confirm; Macro Greens® and Miracle Reds® to be Gluten Free.

Research establishing a safe threshold of gluten consumption for those with celiac disease was recently published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition. The study, conducted by members of the ACDA at the University of Maryland and referenced by the FDA, concludes that celiacs can safely tolerate up to 20 parts per million (ppm) of gluten a day.

"The FDA listened to patients, food manufacturers, and members of the scientific community and came up with a well thought out proposal," said Andrea Levario, Executive Director of the ACDA.
• There is so little research about the gluten-free diet and safe consumption levels that the agency is seeking comments on a number of related issues including:
• The appropriateness of 20 ppm gluten as the proposed threshold level as determined using an ELISA based testing method;
• The effect that adoption of a lower threshold level would have on individuals with celiac disease and on industry;
• Whether a lower threshold level might effect (limit availability of) commercially available foods labeled gluten-free in the United States;
• Whether a reduced availability would have a negative impact individuals with celiac disease; and
• Whether oats should be included in the definition of prohibited grains.
