May 28, 2009 – More and more food producers, including bakeries, are turning to gluten-free (GF) products to capitalize on the growing presence of celiac disease and wheat and gluten allergies in our culture.

producers, including bakeries, are turning to gluten-free (GF) products
to capitalize on the growing presence of celiac disease and wheat and
gluten allergies in our culture.

In Canada, as many as 300,000 people suffer from celiac disease, with many more undiagnosed; in the U.S., the disorder has become more common than autism.
