Gluten-free Diet Awareness Month 2022

November is #GlutenFreeDietAwarenessMonth.

Let’s celebrate this special month by making it easier for friends and family members with Celiac Disease to enjoy their holidays.

Facts About Celliac Disease

  • People with celiac disease have an increased incidence of microscopic colitis and inflammatory bowel disease (Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis).⁠

  • People with celiac disease may have lactose and/or fructose intolerance, both of which can be diagnosed by a hydrogen breath test.

  • People recently diagnosed with celiac disease are commonly deficient in fiber, iron, calcium, magnesium, zinc, folate, niacin, riboflavin, vitamin B12 and vitamin D.

  • Any food product that is labelled “gluten-free” cannot contain more than 20 parts per million of gluten, which is the safe threshold of gluten consumption for people with celiac disease.⁠ ⁠
