CASTLE ROCK, CO--(Marketwire - Mar 12, 2012) - Integrated Management Information, Inc. (IMI Global) (OTCBB: INMG), a leading provider of verification and Internet solutions for the agricultural/livestock industry under the Where Food Comes From® brand, today announced that its International Certification Services (ICS) subsidiary has launched a new Gluten-Free Standard for food manufacturers who seek to differentiate their gluten-free products with a highly credible certification.

Compliance with the "ICS Certified Gluten-Free Standard" is based on a combination of quantitative analysis of the ingredients and products being marketed as Certified Gluten-Free, along with required management practices aimed at minimizing the introduction of gluten proteins in the production stream. The ICS Gluten-Free Standard also includes guidelines and requirements on the kinds of labeling and marketing claims that may be made on Certified Gluten-Free products. This combination of verification of practices, analytical testing, and labeling guidelines creates a powerful regime to give purchasers of Certified Gluten-Free products a high level of confidence.
