Are Dickinson’s Products gluten free?
Dickinson’s Products do not contain ingredients derived from gluten; however, these products do not meet our established criteria for a "gluten-free" claim for one or more of the below listed criteria.
It is important to note that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration has not yet defined the term “gluten-free” or established rules for making a "gluten-free" claim on a food product; however, "gluten-free" claims are permitted, and each manufacturer is responsible for determining whether or not its products are "gluten-free".
We have established the following stringent criteria based on the FDA's proposed rules for making "gluten-free" claims.
- Ingredient Screening - The ingredient cannot contain gluten sources, such as wheat, rye, barley or their derivatives or hybrids. We also review for the presence of oats.
- Testing - While there currently is not a commercially available test to detect the presence of oats, the product must be tested to verify that it contains less than 20 parts per million of gluten.
- Manufacturing Procedures - In addition, facilities that manufacture verified "gluten-free" products must have a comprehensive gluten management program. All equipment used in the manufacture of products containing any gluten or oat source must be cleaned thoroughly prior to producing a product that is "gluten-free". These procedures must be validated and inspected after each clean-up.
Do I need to refrigerate Dickinson’s Products after opening?
We do suggest refrigerating our products after opening. We do not suggest freezing our products.
