Celiac Disease and a Gluten-Free Diet

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!!!

    • love your writing style. there are so many consumers that don’t even know what all natural means. we have so many customers that ask why our desserts taste so different from what they’re use to. we always tell them that it’s because it’s real and doesn’t contain anything artificial. our palettes in this country are so used to eating processed and artificial foods, people don’t know that there is a difference until they taste it. if you were close you could get your sweet fix on without worry or consequence. peace

  1. The link to your website does not seem to working, or is it not available yet? I’d love to see what you offer. And thanks for the compliment. I’m obsessed with healthy treats, whether I eat them or not. It’s great to know that foods are so diverse that even the allergy-prone can enjoy goodies.

    • Thanks for the head’s up regarding the website link. Our website is definitely up and running but perhaps the link is impaired. I’ll check it out and attach another link to my next post. Have a great day and keep in touch. 🙂
