Passage Foods Becomes Gluten-Free Certified

COLLINSVILLE, Conn., Aug. 29, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Passage Foods' range of authentic cooking sauces are now certified gluten-free by the Gluten-Free Certification Organization (GFCO). The Passage Foods range includes Passage to Mexico, Passage to Thailand, Passage to Morocco, and Passage to Europe as well as several other classic and ethnic product ranges. Each of the 23 different simmer sauces is a blend of fresh ingredients creating a recipe deep in the traditional flavors of its country such as Moroccan Harissa, Red Thai Curry, Spanish Chicken and Chipotle Lime. "It has always been in our brand's DNA that Passage Foods products be gluten-free and we have always used third-party testing to detect gluten to a level of 5 parts per million. The Celiac community understands the importance of this testing, but there is a much larger share of the North America population that is now practicing a gluten-restricted diet as a healthy lifestyle choice," states Passage's Mark MacKenzie. "We knew that the Gluten Intolerance Group through their GFCO program was the foremost trusted certification program available and we felt that partnering was an important message to both our healthy lifestyle and celiac customers." 

"There are 3 million people with celiac disease in the USA, but over 15 million additional people who are practicing a gluten-restricted diet due to gluten sensitivity," states GFCO Director Channon Quinn. "We are the leading gluten-free certification program in the world and partnering with brands such as Passage Foods helps us to deliver on our mission to support persons with gluten intolerances so they can be assured that our partner brands are all inspected and practice the highest-quality control standards."
