May is Celiac Awareness Month, and Absolutely Gluten-Free is helping to spread the words of health, hope, and solidarity.
Celiac disease is a genetic autoimmune disease in which people cannot eat gluten because it will damage their small intestine. Sources of gluten come from wheat, rye, barley and some oats. If not properly managed, celiac disease makes the body vulnerable to other diseases, such as type one diabetes, osteoporosis, multiple sclerosis, anaemia, infertility, migraines, and in extreme cases, intestinal cancer. However, people who suffer from this disease are looking ahead with determination and motivation in hopes of finding a cure.
There are many ways to help spread awareness of celiac disease and contribute to the ongoing research to develop treatments and a cure. Many people may not be familiar with celiac disease or may not even know it exists. Therefore, sharing infographics, videos and links on social media can help boost awareness. People can also help by hosting or contributing to fundraisers to assist in the need for continued, extended research.
Celiac disease affects 3 million Americans, with 83% of people undiagnosed; so being able to show support for these individuals has become increasingly important. An integral part of supporting the celiac community is having certain gluten-free products that people can trust.
Absolutely Gluten-Free is a food product brand that offers snack items that are 100% certified gluten-free, all-natural and vegan, as well as OU certified kosher, grain-free and free from corn and rice. Absolutely Gluten-Free is dedicated to providing high-quality, healthy snacks and treats to those who suffer from celiac disease, as well as those who simply opt for a gluten-free lifestyle.
“Absolutely Gluten-Free is the must-have product line for people who seek delicious snacks and products and choose to eat gluten-free products,” said Laura Morris, associate marketing director for the brand. “Absolutely Gluten-Free is ‘proof of the pudding’ that gluten-free can also mean delicious.”
Absolutely Gluten-Free’s signature products are the perfect addition for any occasion. The brand’s crackers and flatbreads are crisp and crunchy, with a wide range of flavours – including original, toasted onion, everything and cracked pepper – and they make the ideal addition to any charcuterie board.
The company says its chocolate drizzled coconut chews are soft and moist, perfect for when you need that something sweet. The line comes in four flavours: cranberry, chocolate and new key lime and blueberry. Meanwhile, Absolutely Gluten-Free’s macaroons come in chocolate and coconut varieties.
In addition to these sweet and savoury snacks, Absolutely Gluten-Free also offers a pizza made with a light cauliflower crust, tomato sauce and creamy cheese. The best part is that there is no need to feel guilty when eating this gluten-free pizza, which is made with natural ingredients – Absolutely Gluten Free makes you feel good about what you are eating.
