Spreading the word for the gluten-free community
Did you know that May is Celiac Awareness Month in Canada and the United States? I’m helping spread the word by telling you all about a great gluten-free event here in Toronto, and sharing a recipe… dah.
First what is gluten? Gluten is a protein found in grains such as barley, wheat and rye. Consumption of gluten can affect the whole body. What is Celiac? Celiac disease is a genetic autoimmune disease which damages the small intestine. The small intestine is part of the gut which digests & absorbs nutrients from food. When the small intestine is damaged, the rate of nutrient absorption from food is reduced. Celiac disease can affect people in many different ways and symptoms vary in severity. Treatment for celiac disease and gluten intolerance is straight forward; those affected are advised to avoid foods which contains gluten. That’s where the never-ending search for delicious gluten-free food begins.
