May is Celiac Awareness Month
Please show support to your friends and family with Celiac.
According to our friends at Beyond Celiac, currently, the only treatment for celiac disease is a strict, lifelong gluten-free diet.
Eating gluten, no matter how small the amount, can damage the intestine.
Celiac is a serious genetic autoimmune disorder that damages the villi of the small intestine and interferes with absorption of nutrients from food.
An estimated 1 in 133 Americans, or about 1% of the population, has celiac disease.
A gluten-free diet means avoiding all foods that contain wheat, rye, and barley in all forms.
It is important to read all labels carefully for these ingredients, as sometimes, they are listed under less common names. For example, wheat may be referred to as spelt, triticale or khorasan on an ingredients label.
Despite these restrictions, people with celiac disease can eat a well-balanced diet with a variety of foods, including bread and pasta. Amy Levy PR makes it our business to represent many wonderful products that are gluten-free.
Many gluten-free alternatives are now made with potato, rice, soy, or bean flour. In addition, plain meat, fish, fruits and vegetables are naturally gluten-free, so people with celiac disease can continue to eat these foods after diagnosis.
Following a gluten-free diet may seem daunting at first, but, with a little creativity, anyone can make delicious gluten-free meals.
For years, gluten-free consumers that had previously enjoyed sushi and Asian soba noodles had to forego their favorite dishes because they could no longer eat pasta or soy sauce due to their celiac disease diagnosis.
Our client, King Soba Noodle Culture creates products for wonderful gf meals. Their lines of organic noodles, ramen and miso have revolutionized the way that people on a gluten-free diet experience food.
They make Fairtrade Organic Pad Thai noodles that are perfectly creamy for a quick sauté with shrimp, vegetables and sauce. Their Black Rice Ramen turns soup broth a glorious purple color. Savor the taste with kids of all ages and slurp up an endless choice of steaming hot noodle goodness.
Together let's celebrate a lifestyle of EATING CLEAN - organic, wheat free, gluten-free and non-GMO.
