Evaluating and Overcoming the Nutritional Deficits and Added Costs of Gluten-Free Products

When talking about living with celiac disease, we most often discuss gluten as being toxic. But, what we don’t often look at is why gluten is beneficial in food and what happens nutritionally and economically when we take it away to make gluten-free products. During this presentation, I’ll look at research from around the world that evaluates the nutritional properties and cost of gluten-free specialty products and compares it to their gluten-containing counterparts. Then, most importantly, discuss ways to overcome these challenges to live a nutritionally balanced and cost effective gluten-free lifestyle.
