If you or anyone you know follows a gluten-free diet then I highly recommend you bookmark this website, www.beyondceliac.org.
Gluten is a protein found in wheat, rye, and barley that causes serious harm to people with celiac disease. When people with celiac disease eat gluten, their bodies react by attacking, or inflaming, the very parts of the small intestine necessary for absorbing nutrients.
Following a strict gluten-free diet is not easy, partly because gluten sneaks its way into all kinds of foods that you might not suspect, including soy sauce, salad dressings, broth, imitation fish, and more.
I counsel lots of individuals with celiac disease and non-celiac wheat sensitivity who cannot eat gluten, so I'm always looking for helpful resources for navigating the gluten-free diet. Not too long ago I learned about Beyond Celiac, a group dedicated to improving the lives of people living with celiac disease.
The Beyond Celiac website is easy to use, attractive, and extremely informative. There are lots of free educational downloads, recipes, and tips for people on gluten-free diets as well as for healthcare and food service professionals.
