Review

Shelley Case has written the definitive gluten-free guide. The extensive research behind this book will benefit everyone who needs to be on a gluten-free diet. This is a MUST HAVE reference for every physician and patient who has to deal with gluten restriction in their life! --Dr. Michelle Pietzak, MD, Pediatric Gastroenterologist and Assistant Professor of Clinical Pediatrics, University of Southern California Keck School of Medicine, Los Angeles, California

This book contains a wealth of information useful for everyone interested in an accurate resource for the gluten-free diet. --Cynthia Kupper, RD, Executive Director, Gluten Intolerance Group of North America, Seattle, Washington

With increased awareness and consequently, the increase in the number of people diagnosed with celiac disease, clear guidelines on how to embrace a gluten-free diet are crucial. Shelley's new edition is timely and extremely welcome to educate 'newcomers' to the celiac community, as well as experienced members and health care professionals. --Dr. Alessio Fasano, MD, Director of the University of Maryland Center for Celiac Research, Baltimore, Maryland

Successfully following a gluten-free (GF) diet involves much more than just avoiding gluten. It is about getting optimal nutrition from healthful foods. And it is not all about GF breads and cookies, it's about eating a bounty of whole foods and incorporating healthful whole GF grains, using them in ways that maximize their nutritional benefits.

As a registered dietitian, I refer to Gluten Free Diet on a regular basis; I trust that the information is research-based, backed with science, and 100% reliable. It is the number-one resource on GF diets / GF living for myself and for my clients.

Shelley Case, a registered dietitian who herself follows the GF diet, is an international expert on celiac disease and the GF diet. The book not only covers the GF diet in detail, but common medical questions and issues that arise among folks suffering from celiac disease, or wondering if they might have it. From everyday concerns to more remote issues, all topics are covered in an easy-to-understand prose, complete with useful tables, appendices, and easy recipes.

The book gets updated regularly, so is up to speed on the more controversial issues such as oats (are they GF or not?), hidden sources of gluten in the diet, cross-contamination issues, limiting nutrients and where to find them, whether a "dedicated facility" is important or not and other labeling issues, and great resources for anyone needing support and information on going GF. One of the best sections of the book is Case's well-researched list of GF manufacturers/brands, bakeries, stores, distributors, and web-sites.

If you've been diagnosed with celiac disease or want to follow a gluten-free diet for any other reason, this is the only book you'll need.

I purchased this book because of the 5-star rating it received and was highly disappointed. Yes, it is a comprehensive resourse guide, but it is aimed at other registered dieticians or medical professionals, not the average person looking for answers or help with living gluten-free. The sections are not straightforward and are difficult to follow. With the exception of the first few pages on what items do or do not contain gluten, I came away no more educated on the subject than I was before buying this book.

After 25 years working with mesquite (Prosopis spp) as a university researcher, in cooperation with other partners, we began to produce and import mesquite flour into the USA. Very shortly after I got a call from Shelley Case with requests for information about nutritional quality. She requested scientific journal articles going back to the early 80s with all information about mesquite. She called all domestic and international suppliers for information on their products. She prepared an excel spreadsheet to look for glaring differences among the nutritional information. Following this exhaustive literature search and analyses, she summarized the work for her book. The two things that come to my mind when I think of this book are attention to detail and scholarship. One can be sure the data is all inclusive, up to date and correct.

RE: GLUTEN-FREE DIET, A Comprehensive Resource Guide by Shelley Case, B.SC. RD. Shelley Case's book is THE BEST resource for people who need a gluten-free diet. Although there are few absolutes in terms of a gluten-free diet, registered dietitian Shelley gives us the most accurately researched information on ingredients and other details. There's no point avoiding an ingredient that we really don't have to worry about. You need to know about meal planning, shopping guidelines, nutrition, cross contamination, tips for eating out, GF labeling regulations, & directory of GF specialty vendors and GF products. This book should be one of the first GF reference books you buy.

I was recently diagnosed with Celiac Disease. My doctor simply said you must follow a gluten free diet and referred me to a Registered Dietitian who handed me a bunch of print outs that really didn't offer me a whole lot of needed information.

Then I got obsessed. The info on CD from the 27 different books I have purchased so far is as varied as the colors on a color wheel. Everyone has their own take on how to successfully eat gluten free. I didn't want to eat cupcakes, pies and cookies for every meal. Most books on the market are for baking and don't have in depth nutrition info and I wanted nutrition.

I somehow came across this book and holy cow! Changed my life!

Mrs. Case's book is a MUST have. I think all doctors, dietitians, nutritionists, friends, family and everyone that deals with, lives with, or cooks for someone with Celiac Disease should own this book AND read it. It's packed with much needed information to finally achieve good health.

Included in this book are pages, yes PAGES of info on dietary reference intakes (DRI's) of various nutrients like iron, folate, vitamin b12 etc in various food sources such as flours, starches, meats, beans, nuts, fruits and vegetables. Each nutrient is prefaced with a section that lists how much an infant, child, male, female, even pregnancy and lactation is covered.

You walk away from this book with enough confidence to create a menu, with an abundance of choices, that works for you and your family and you WILL get your health back on track.

Thanks Mrs. Case!!
