Today's gluten free products, such as breads, cakes, cookies, pasta and snacks, make living on the celiac diet easier than ever before.
Have you noticed the increase in these products on your local supermarket or grocery store shelves?
In years gone by it was difficult to find a mail order supplier of the basics such as flour and bread, but celiac sufferers can now find many varieties of goods, such as those provided by Dietary Specials, alongside their normal grocery items.
Having grown up on tinned bread that was as dry and unappetizing as sawdust, and only being able to eat a piece of cake or a cookie if my Mum cooked them for me, the choice nowadays is wonderful!
It seems as though the manufacturers are realizing that there is a market for gluten free foods.
Whether this is due to the higher numbers of people being diagnosed with celiac disease or gluten intolerance, or the fact that the diet seems to have become a fad weight-loss program among certain celebrities, is open to discussion.
