Is Grindz™ a concern for those with gluten allergies?
We feel confident that there are no issues pertaining to Grindz™ and gluten intolerance. In response to questions about this subject, the Urnex Brands, Inc. technical staff created a detailed scientific proof to address the issue. The findings show that when Grindz™ is used according to directions, the possible amount of gluten that could ever remotely be found in a cup of espresso made using a grinder cleaned with Grindz is below 20 parts per million. This 20 ppm level is 90% below the gluten threshold for a product to still be defined as “Gluten Free” in the Codex Alimentarius Standard. This standard is an international one that dates back to the 1980’s for Gluten Free Products and is accepted internationally. Because of the coffee/water ratios used in espresso vs. brewed coffee, these ppm levels would be even further reduced when consideration is made for brewed coffee.
