I am a little late posting this, but it can be handy to have someone in the know when it comes to food laws. The US issued draft Codex positions on Gluten Free foods last month. Click here to see the news.
They expect the demand for GF foods to increase from a $700 million industry currently to a $1.7 billion dollar industry by 2010. Entrepreneurs get ready and jump on board! Who wants to make me some GF ravioli, some GF pizza rolls (like those ones in the freezer section – so bad, yet so good!) and GF pop tarts (a low sugar, high fiber version)? Why do I want a GF pop tart when I ate them maybe once every three years? Cause I can’t have them now. And if they weren’t so sugary they might make good road trip food.
At any rate, just wanted to pass on the news if you hadn’t heard about it.
