Toronto, Ontario (PRWEB) June 12, 2014
The Gluten-Free Certification Program (GFCP) and the National Foundation for Celiac Awareness are pleased to announce that McCormick & Company has become one of a growing number of GFCP certified companies with the introduction of a new line of gluten-free recipe mixes to be available this summer in grocery stores across the United States.
A global leader in flavor, McCormick & Company has built its reputation on creating the highest quality products on the market. As the leading supplier of spices, seasonings, specialty foods and flavors to the entire food industry, it now joins a growing number of companies who are committed to helping consumers look for safe gluten-free products.
By displaying the GFCP trademark, the McCormick Gluten-Free Recipe Mixes provide consumers with a trusted and easily identifiable source of safe gluten-free products, without sacrificing taste, to aid consumers that have celiac disease, gluten sensitivity or are avoiding gluten for other reasons. Some of the delicious new gluten-free recipe mix offerings to include the GFCP trademark include: Taco, Chili, Turkey and Brown Gravy Mixes. The new Gluten-Free gravy and recipe mixes are made with the natural goodness of herbs and spices, and no MSG or artificial colors/flavors. These delicious mixes are also priced the same as regular varieties. Real gluten-free food you can feel good about, without compromising on flavor.
“The National Foundation for Celiac Awareness welcomes McCormick & Company to this program and believes that all Americans have the right to safe food, and hence, has developed the Gluten-Free Certification Program to meet those special needs,” states Paul Valder, President of the Gluten-Free Certification Program. “The NFCA advocates on behalf of approximately 21 million Americans suffering from celiac disease and gluten sensitivity, who are frustrated by the uncertainty of identifying gluten-free products which are essential to their well-being.”
About the Gluten-Free Certification Program
The Gluten-Free Certification Program (GFCP) was developed so consumers can shop with confidence by selecting those safe, reliable and gluten-free products displaying the GFCP trademark and is endorsed by the National Foundation for Celiac Awareness and the Canadian Celiac Association.
The GFCP is a voluntary certification program designed to help brand owners to differentiate their gluten-free products from the increasing clutter of gluten-free claims, by displaying the GFCP trademark. This is based on a robust third-party audit certification process at the manufacturing facility, which verifies their ability to regularly meet the stringent GFCP requirements, when managing gluten as part of their food safety programs. http://www.glutenfreecert.com
