NSF Gluten-Free Certification
NSF International completed a survey of nearly 1,000 American consumers and found that 68 percent don’t realize dietary supplements could contain gluten. Wheat is often used as a filler in dietary supplements. This is why it is important to look for “gluten-free certified” products that undergo robust auditing, testing and certification. NSF International has a science-based gluten-free certification program and has tested and certified 73 different dietary supplements, including probiotic products.
Known as “The Most-Trusted Name in Food Safety™” and recognized by regulatory agencies at the local, state, federal and international levels, the NSF certification mark signifies that the product complies with all standard requirements.
The NSF Gluten-Free Certification ensures that companies have a gluten-free compliance plan and undergo onsite inspections of their production and handling facilities, during which time accredited inspectors test products to confirm gluten-free integrity of 20 parts per million (ppm) or less, while ongoing audits verify that procedures are in place to prevent contamination or commingling.
In addition, the inspector verifies that the company is conducting the appropriate raw ingredient testing or that raw ingredients are being sourced from an NSF International certified gluten-free supplier.
