Food hypersensitivity is a phenomenon that can lead to nausea, shortness of breath, shock and even death. Food hypersensitivity is caused by allergens in food. Celiac disease is a gluten hypersensitivity and is one of the most common forms of food hypersensitivity.

The Dutch Celiac Disease Association (NCV) has been committed to people with celiac disease since the 1970s. To offer consumers a safe choice, the NCV has developed a standard for suppliers of gluten-free foods. The Gluten-Free Certificate contributes to freedom of choice for consumers by making it known in a transparent manner that certified products and companies meet the standard of the Dutch Celiac Association.

European organisations that work for people with Celiac disease have joined forces at a European level: the Association of European Coeliac Societies (AOECS). The NCV is also affiliated with the AOECS. A joint certification scheme has been set up for the certification of gluten-free food. Schouten Certification can assess your organisation against this scheme. Want to know more?
