Gluten Free

What is gluten free?

Celiac disease is a sensitivity to gluten, a protein found in grains, wheat, rye and barley. This disease can trigger an autoimmune response in which the small intestine villi are damaged, preventing nutrients from being absorbed. When gluten is removed from the diet, the small intestines will start to heal and overall health will improve. Check with your doctor before starting a gluten free diet.

The scoop on oats

Most gluten-free foods are not fortified. Make sure you're getting your daily needs of calcium, vitamin D, iron, folate and vitamin B12, and remember to check labels to make sure no gluten fillers are used.
