These days many of us are being told by our doctors that it may be wise to follow a gluten free diet. Gluten is found in grains such as wheat, barley, rye and triticale (a cross between wheat and rye). A gluten-free diet is used to treat celiac disease, a condition that involves inflammation in the small intestines and results in considerable discomfort for the sufferer. Eating a gluten-free diet helps people with celiac disease control their signs and symptoms and prevent complications.
Initially, following a gluten-free diet may be frustrating. But with time, patience and creativity, you’ll find there are many foods that you already eat that are gluten-free and you will find substitutes for gluten-containing foods that you can enjoy.
If you or someone you know has been told that a gluten free diet may aid your symptoms, I am happy to tell you that at Marisolio we carry a full line of gluten free pastas. The Pappardelle Pasta Company, who makes these products, has a fine reputation for quality pastas, and has quite a presence at Seattle’s Pike’s Market.
