Experts Explain the Many Sources of Hidden Gluten on Local TV Segment


While some foods are obvious sources of gluten (like pizza, pasta and bread) it might not be so obvious in other foods or products.  In a news segment with CBS Miami, National Foundation for Celiac Awareness (NFCA) Founder and President Alice Bast shared examples of places gluten can be hiding.

Dr. Joseph A. Murray of the Mayo Clinic also appeared on the segment.  Both experts cautioned people with celiac disease to check for gluten in medications, cosmetics and even children’s toys and arts and crafts.  Together, Dr. Murray and Alice succeeded in putting celiac disease in the public domain, raising much needed awareness.
