I worked at a gluten/ allergen free facility. If you do have gluten you would treat it as an allergen. Run gluten products at the end, schedule a wash down, then test. Apart from this quarterly gluten test on finished product.

You should definitely have gluten-free certifying bodies in US - contact them for the certification pre-requisites and instructions.

There are a number of things that need to done, especially if you plan on running GF in a facility that has gluten present.

 

I would first start with taking a look at the two big ones --

 

GF & the Gluten-Free Certification Program

 

www.gfco.org

 

https://www.brcgs.co...cation-program/

 

You will be able to get the standards and requirements for inspections and certification on those two and then determine if you want to go DIY or bring in a consultant to help.

 

The Gluten-Free Certification program was bought out by and is now run by the folks at BRCGS. (BRC)


Kind regards,
