GFCO is the global leader in gluten-free certification (yes, GFCO certifies 60,000 products from over 50 countries!)
GFCO is the only certification owned and operated by a non-profit support organization (this matters, consumer safety comes first).
GFCO uses scientific expertise to analyze EVERY ingredient in EVERY product before it can be certified (thousands of ingredients are reviewed every week).
GFCO has the strictest safety standards of any gluten-free certifier. Manufacturers must meet 80 requirements to proactively prevent gluten contamination before it can occur, then required testing ensures the product is safely gluten-free.
The GFCO Standard is 10ppm of gluten or less for every ingredient in every product that is certified.
23% of consumers are shopping for gluten-free products in the US.
2 out of 3 gluten-free shoppers look for the GFCO mark over a gluten-free claim or reading the ingredient label.
8 out of 10 gluten-free consumers would like all gluten-free products to have the GFCO-certification mark on their packaging.
