Glutino & Gluten Free Pantry is a manufacturer and distributor specializing in gluten free products. These days nearly everyone is on a restricted diet of one sort or another. However, one of the biggest surprises is that nearly 3 million people in the United States have Celiac Disease and that it is one of the most under-diagnosed diseases in the Country.
Celiac Disease came to the forefront last year when the National Institutes of Health (NIH) convened a panel of experts to present the scientific evidence about celiac disease. This 3-day meeting led to the NIH Consensus Report, which concluded that as many as one in every 100 Americans may suffer from this disease.
Celiac Disease is a digestive disorder that is triggered by eating the protein, gluten, which is found in the grains wheat, rye and barley. There is no cure for the disease, but it can be controlled through strict avoidance of foods that contain gluten.
The increased recognition of Celiac Disease means that thousands of people with those symptoms may finally get the right test and the right treatment.
