Celiac is a common disease and there are findings about gluten is generally not good for human health thus, free gluten food production studies have been increased and regulations for providing standards in this field have been made. A regulation for producing free gluten food go into operation in year 2012 and our country has updated its regulations accordingly that regulation which prepared by European Committee. An important development has been carried out for producing free gluten food. There are separated sections only for free gluten food in EU countries and our country. This situation increases the need of firms for intermediate staff that possesses practical knowledge about production field and regulations about producing free gluten food. It is possible to find gluten in the last product due to cross links even though the raw material is completely gluten free. Thus, the risk for cross links must be taken under control through special sanitation and confirmation applications during the production stage. This situation increases the need of expertise qualified staff in producing gluten free food even more.
