I HAVE DEALING WITH CELIAC SPRUE SINCE I WAS A NEWBORN IN OCT. 1951. IT IS A CHALLENGE TO FOLLOW THE DIET. LUCKILY THAT MORE PLACES ARE GETTING GLUTEN FREE FOOD CHOICES. IT IS NOT VERY WELL RECIEVED IN MANY RESTAURANTS. THEY LOOK AT YOU AS A NUISANCE. WE HAVE TO EDUCATE THE PUBLIC TO OUR NEEDS. I AM ALWAYS GLAD TO GET NEW FOODS AND NEW SUGGESTIONS FROM EATING WELL.

My wife has discovered she has gluten intolerance and so to support her I eat less wheat/gluten. In doing that, I find that I feel better also - less bloated, less gas, and just better in general.

I have a gluten and dairy intolerance and when I eat wheat/gluten and/or dairy products my skin gets itchy. It took me years to figure out what was causing it. Now that I know what it is, it is much easier to avoid; however, there are so many hidden sources of gluten that it is quite difficult to avoid even when you're looking! Wheat & dairy are in SO MANY things that we eat in our American diet. I hope that as companies learn more about celiac disease & wheat/gluten intolerance, they begin using alternative ingredients so that more people can eat their products. It can't be that hard to replace wheat flour with rice flour or almond milk instead of cow's milk. Thank you! - Peggy-

I am gluten intolerant. I have found eliminating gluten has cleared up my skin and sinuses and I lost 25 pounds. Would love to see more recipes using other grains, such as quinoa.

Gluten isn't the problem; it's refined, overly processed grains that we should be avoiding! Major props to Anonymous #1 who uses spelt flour. It's a fantastic alternative to the white stuff: Tastes and bakes similar and has a much better nutritional profile.

We have been gf for 5.5 years now due to Celiac. It was tough at first but now there are so many options! Also, it is so easy to do it when you realize how sick the gluten makes you feel! Yuck!

My blood type (A+) diet advises to avoid wheat. My son's O+ blood diet advises to avoid wheat & gluten. He is being tested for Celiac Disease, so we will find out for sure, but I think he will benefit by not eating it so much.

I was tested and found that I have no celiac disease, so I contunue to eat this.
