Gluten-Free Goodness Made Easy!

May 18, 2010

MINNEAPOLIS, May 18 /PRNewswire/ — The month of May puts a spotlight on Celiac Disease, one of the most common genetic conditions in the world. According to the Mayo Clinic, 1 in 100 people live with Celiac Disease, 97% of whom will go undiagnosed.

May is dedicated to Celiac Disease, when Celiac organizations, those with Celiac, and companies that produce much needed gluten-free products ban together to spread the word about this digestive disorder that affects children and adults. Not only is this a critical time to enlighten people about the disease, but it is also a time to empower those who have been diagnosed with tools to make their diet and lifestyle as simple and delicious as possible.

Going gluten-free can challenge even the best cooks, but French Meadow Bakery, the nation’s oldest continuously certified-organic bakery in the U.S., shares recipes and products with consumers that ensure a gluten-free lifestyle as not only delicious but also easy.

Chef Mark Stussi, C.E.C., Rich Products Corporation, recognizes meal time as one of the hardest times for those with Celiac. “It is increasingly easier to find gluten-free products, but it is still difficult to identify items that taste good, not to mention finding easy ways to incorporate them into a recipe,” said Stussi. The rise in Celiac diagnoses led Chef Mark to “create wholesome, simple recipes incorporating French Meadow Bakery gluten-free products into achievable, everyday meals.”

“In addition to our great-tasting and nutritious products, French Meadow Bakery is proud to offer solutions for the gluten-free lifestyle,” said Beth Naffziger, brand manager for health and wellness, French Meadow Bakery. “We know that gluten-free meal preparation can be a daunting challenge. As an internationally recognized, gold-standard provider in the gluten-free industry, French Meadow shares several simple ways to incorporate our delicious products into recipes that make mealtime a snap.”

French Meadow Bakery understands the seriousness of food allergies and intolerances. The bakery’s gluten-free products are made in a dedicated gluten-free facility and carry the seal of the Gluten-Free Certification Organization. The products are also free from lactose, casein, peanuts, tree nuts, and preservatives. An independent laboratory periodically tests the company’s allergen claims.

“People with Celiac Disease must be able to identify products they trust,” said Naffziger. “Our certified products take the guesswork and worry out of buying gluten-free foods.”

Although the safety and quality of gluten-free products is of paramount importance, taste is also a key factor that sets apart many gluten-free offerings. “French Meadow Bakery has made flavorless gluten-free foods a thing of the past,” said Naffziger. “Taste is one of our key priorities. We’re thrilled that our lineup offers a bounty of flavorful products that continue to be delicious hits!”
