Are these products really gluten free?
Yes! They meet the FDA requirements for gluten-free foods.
I have a wheat allergy; can I eat these products?
No! You shouldn’t eat these products if you’re allergic to wheat. We use wheat starch that goes through a rinsing process to remove gluten. However, it still contains other wheat proteins that may cause an allergic reaction when consumed by a person who is allergic to wheat.
I have celiac disease; can I eat these products?
We can’t provide specific dietary advice to our consumers who have celiac disease or who are otherwise sensitive to gluten. We can assure that these products meet the FDA requirements for gluten- free foods which can be tolerated by most people with celiac disease.
How can you have wheat in a product that’s gluten free?
We use wheat starch that goes through a rinsing process to remove gluten. The wheat starch still contains other wheat proteins, which allows us to get that bready texture while still being gluten free.
Is it really gluten free? I still don’t understand how you can have wheat in a gluten free item.
We extract the starch from the wheat and then rinse the starch to remove the gluten. This allows us to have a pizza that contains a wheat-derived ingredient (to give us the bready texture) that meets FDA requirements for a gluten free food.
What is the FDA threshold for gluten in a food labeled as “gluten free”?
Any food that is labeled “gluten free” must contain less than 20 parts per million of gluten.According to the FDA, other countries and international bodies use these same criteria, as most people with celiac disease can tolerate foods with very small amounts of gluten.

Are you certified gluten free? How can you prove your pizzas are gluten free?
Our DiGiorno Gluten Free pizzas are not currently certified gluten free by a third party, but we are in the process of obtaining this certification and will update our website and packaging when they are third-party certified. Separate from that, we have conducted extensive testing to verify that these products meet the FDA requirements for a gluten free food.
What third party are you working with to get certified?
Until we go through the full certification process, we aren’t able to share that.
