Gluten-Free Certification

For consumers who need to know

Gluten intolerance afflicts millions of people. Up to 18% of the global population suffers from some level of gluten sensitivity, while 1 out of 100 people have celiac disease, which compromises the body’s ability to digest gluten and can lead to debilitating symptoms ranging from abdominal pain and bloating to headaches and depression. Gluten-Free certification empowers these individuals to make sound and safe food choices.


SCS is proud to certify foods and beverages under the strict gluten-free standard developed by the Gluten Intolerance Group and administered by the Gluten-Free Certification Organization (GFCO). GFCO-certified is the largest and fastest growing gluten-free label in North America, stricter than Codex, USA, Canada, the EU and many other country standards. For instance, while the Codex standards, developed by the World Health Organization and UN Food and Agriculture Organization, allow up to 20 parts per million of gluten, GFCO certification requires that foods meet a standard twice that strict – no more than 10 parts per million.
