The January/February issue of Natural Health Magazine features a blurb on page 28 discussing how–according to the Mayo Clinic–about 1.8million people have celiac disease. It also mentions–according to a study published in
The American Journal of Gastroenterology–that about 1.6million people are eating gluten-free. If that’s the case, here’s my question: why is a loaf of gluten-free bread (and other products) still so expensive? I’m currently paying between $5.50 and $6 per loaf at my local (chain) grocery store. How about you?
In case you missed it, p. 22 of the December issue of Yoga Journal spotlights four gluten-free flours in their “mix it up” blurb. Bob’s Red Mill, Namaste Foods, Arrowhead Mills and Pamela’s are all mentioned. I am always pleased to see the mention of gluten-free products in the various publications to which I subscribe. If you enjoy yoga and living well, I highly recommend a subscription to Yoga Journal.

For those of you in the CNY area–or those planning to visit–check out page 54 of the November/December issue of
THE GOOD LIFE central new york MAGAZINE. You’ll find a blurb in their Holiday section about Beak & Skiff Farm Distillery’s premium small-batch apple vodka. As you’ll see from the photo, there is a sticker on the bottle that classifies it as “Gluten Free!” I had the pleasure of visiting Beak & Skiff last fall and found it to be quite the local treasure. I would highly recommend a visit. Makes for a nice family outing when the apples are ready for picking. I would also recommend picking up a copy of THE GOOD LIFE; it is an intelligent, beautifully crafted publication that highlights the best of CNY.
