In running a small business, especially a food establishment, you must remain cognizant of food sensitivities, allergies and food-related disorders. One such disorder/disease is Celiac disease. Celiac disease is a digestive disease that damages the small intestine and interferes with absorption of nutrients from food. Persons who suffer from Celiac disease cannot tolerate gluten, a protein in wheat, rye, and barley. It is estimated that Celiac disease affects nearly 2 million Americans. Given this statistic, the production of gluten-free products has become a billion dollar industry. As a small bakery, we have witnessed this first-hand through a steady increase in requests for gluten-free products. Hence, we now offer gluten-free cupcakes, macaroons and granola and are testing other gluten-free recipes to meet the needs/expectations of our customers. If you’d like to learn more about Celiac disease, please check out the following article. Also, if you’d like to learn more about our gluten-free options, check out our website, below. Take care and get BAKED!!!
