Gluten-Free Eating

Gluten is a type of protein found in grains such as wheat, rye and barley. Some people have to avoid gluten due to an allergy or intolerance. People with celiac disease, an autoimmune condition where the intestine is damaged by gluten, must follow a gluten-free diet as treatment for the condition.

For information on Celiac disease, visit The Canadian Celiac Association website. Here you will find information on diagnosing celiac disease, foods to avoid on the gluten-free diet, recipes, and more.
