Gluten Free Store Tour - Earth Fare

Living Gluten-Free Store Tour @ Earth Fare
09/23/09 ~ 6:00 pm

Gluten is a special type of protein that is commonly found in many cereal and bread grains such as rye, wheat, and barley. Gluten helps make bread elastic and provides it with the chewy texture it has when eaten. For this reason, gluten that is removed from dough is sticky and feels much like chewing gum. Gluten intolerance, also known as Celiac disease, is a genetic disease that impacts someone’s ability to digest the gluten from cereal grains. In the USA about 1 in 133 people suffer from Celiac disease.

If you are new to a gluten-free lifestyle, feel overwhelmed when you shop, and don’t know where to start or what products taste the best, then come to Earth Fare for a living gluten free tour of the store. We will highlight where to find gluten-free products and taste test some of the most popular brands. Meet others that are going through the same dietary struggles and feel more confident next time you shop.
