Not Just for Celi­acs

Ac­cord­ing to The Celiac Dis­ease Foun­da­tion, about 1% of the world’s pop­u­la­tion has Celiac dis­ease. That would mean in the United States about 325,000 peo­ple have the dis­ease. How­ever, at a re­cent con­fer­ence I at­tended, a speaker pre­sented that nearly one-

Delight Gluten Free - - Front Page -

It is quite clear that you do not need to be celiac to ben­e­fit from a gluten-free diet. There is a re­la­tion­ship be­tween gluten and sev­eral au­toim­mune health con­di­tions in­clud­ing thy­roid dis­ease and Lu­pus, to name a few. There is also an over­lap be­tween a gluten-free diet and a low FODMAP diet. FODMAP stands for Fer­mentable-oligosac­cha­ride-dis­ac­cha­ride-monosac­cha­ride-and-poly­ols. Grains such as wheat, bar­ley and rye are also high in FODMAPS. Re­duc­ing con­sump­tion of these grains will im­prove your di­ges­tive process.

What does this all have to do with De­light Gluten Free? It’s sim­ple—our mis­sion is to help im­prove the health of our read­ers. You will find more ed­i­to­rial in­for­ma­tion con­cern­ing how a gluten­free diet can im­prove your health. We will in­clude ar­ti­cles from health care pro­fes­sion­als (like the ar­ti­cle in this is­sue by Chris­tine Northrup, MD) and pro­vide tips on liv­ing a healthy life with­out gluten.

We are also adding a “reader’s choice” page in each is­sue where you can share your fa­vorite gluten-free restau­rant. Those se­lected will be in­cluded in this fea­ture—so share your fa­vorite places to dine.

All this ex­tra con­tent doesn’t mean we will skimp on recipes. Each is­sue will con­tain recipe ideas from chefs, our staff, blog­gers and you, our read­ers. If you want to sub­mit a recipe, visit de­light­g­luten­ for in­struc­tions. We truly want to be a gluten-free com­mu­nity, not just a mag­a­zine.

Thank you very much for your sup­port!
