    Presentation Title:

    Gluten-free: standards and consumer perspectives

    Presentation Synopsis:

    Coeliac UK is the UK national charity for people with coeliac disease, working to improve the lives of people with the condition. Coeliac disease is a lifelong autoimmune disease affecting roughly 1 in 100 people across Europe and currently the only treatment for the condition is a strict gluten-free diet for life. Whilst EU-wide labelling legislation has made it much easier for people to identify safe foods and gluten-free provision in restaurants is generally improving, maintaining standards and safety in gluten-free production is key to providing assurances for consumers. This talk will look at what consumers want and standards available for assuring gluten-free production in both catering and manufacturing environments.
