The Food and Drug Administration has released new rules defining exactly what "gluten-free" on a food label means, reports USA Today. Under the federal definition, which FDA has been working on since 2007, food that carries a "gluten-free" label must contain fewer than 20 parts per million of gluten. Food packages will be required to conform to the new rules within one year.
