Gluten testing

Since February 2024 the FSANZ Food Standards Code requires food businesses to meet new plain English allergen labelling requirements for how certain foods known to be common allergens are declared. The gluten-containing products wheat, barley, oats and rye* must now be declared in the ingredient list when they are present.

* Barley, oats and rye must be declared if they contain gluten.

In order for foods to be labelled “Gluten Free” there must be no detectable gluten present. This is widely accepted as <3ppm. Foods with detectable gluten falling below 20mg/100g (200ppm) may be declared as “low gluten”.
