IT'S CELIAC AWARENESS MONTH
May is Celiac Awareness Month! Celiac Disease is the most prevalent autoimmune disorder in the world. Amy Levy PR is proud to support the Celiac community along with our wonderful clients that serve these affected consumers.
From Venice Bakery's delicious pizza crusts, wraps, cookies, pastas and flatbreads to Doc's Nutrilicious awesome gluten-free and dairy-free pizzas to Mina's Purely Divine baking mixes, our agency is fast becoming a leader in gluten-free marketing!
Celiac Disease (CD) is unique in that a specific food component, gluten, has been identified as the trigger. When individuals with CD eat gluten, the villi (tiny hair-like projections in the small intestine that absorb nutrients from food) are damaged. This is due to an autoimmune reaction to gluten.
One out of 133 people in the United States is affected with Celiac Disease.
