Gluten-Free News Roundup–April 2011

Usually I write on one topic in particular, but there has been so much buzzing about the gluten-free/Celiac world that I wanted to share the highlights!

  • 1 in 133 is a new project designed to highlight the lack of action on the part of the FDA in putting out a ruling on the definition of “gluten-free”, as promised by August 2008, and obviously long overdue.  If you’re local, consider coming out for the fun on May 4th (added incentive–world’s largest GF cake!).  Also, whether you’re near or far, sign the petition and/or consider donating to the cause.
  • A little of my gluten-free journey was featured in a Washingtonian blog article on Celiac disease and a gluten-free diet.  I am hopeful that if there is a good response, they will focus on Celiac issues more often.
  • Planning for Passover or just like the increased selection of gluten-free foods? I’ve got a great explanation and also recipes here. And if you do celebrate Passover, Yehuda brand has gluten-free matza just $6 a box at some local stores.
  • If you love the latest news on Celiac, gluten intolerance, good nutrition and other health issues, I’ve joined the wild world of Twitter.  Follow me  @cherylharrisrd
