One thing that distinguishes this book from among others on this subject is that readers learn about Canadian as well as US packaging of food products.

This practical common sense book is ideal for individuals who suffer from Celiac disease (about 1 in every 200) and for the nutritionists and medical professionals who help them. As one of the leading experts in Celiac disease, Case has worked with thousands of people with Gluten intolerance. Now her research and expertise can help individuals, families and health professionals around the world.
There are listings for over 130 North American and international companies specializing in gluten-free products. Over 1600 specialty foods are listed by company and product name. There is very helpful information about gluten-free meal planning, shopping guidelines, recipes, creative snack ideas, baking tips. Detailed nutrition information and gluten-free resource listings (cookbooks, web sites, magazines) also provide vital information.
The subtitle reads "A Comprehensive Resource Guide". Case's remarkable research and attention to detail makes this the leading gluten-free resource on the market today.

Be sure to make this book your best friend if you want good, comprehensive information about enjoying a gluten free lifestyle. This Godsend of a book is a book many have prayed to see for years. It is replete with useful information and tips that can be readily applied to maintaining a gluten free regimen. Shelley Case is someone whose research and facts gibe and you can count on her for accuracy along with Bette Hagman, another top contender in providing recipes and information for living the gluten free life.

One thing that distinguishes this book from among others on this subject is that readers learn about Canadian as well as US packaging of food products. Readers will appreciate the web sites Case has included with further helpful information. This book is one that everybody who is interested in maintaining a gluten free regimen will treasure. Readers will also benefit from her information about a myriad of related topics from food processors to packaging to baking and other food preparations. This book is ideal not only for people with celiac disease, but for anybody who is serious about eliminating gluten from their diet. Truly a shining gem!

Format: Paperback
I bought this book a week after I was diagnosed with celiac disease. It was the best move I could have made. The information is clear and definitely comprehensive. I even used some of the references and footnotes to follow up and read the scientific studies Shelley Case cites. When I visited a dietitian for advice on following a gluten-free diet, she continually referred me to this book.

A great overview for those with Celiac or GF issues. Succinct but not summary. Helps you think about the easy-to-miss details when trying to live GF as gluten lurks everywhere.

In my over 20 years of being gluten intolerant, there has never been a book published that addresses all the issues of the disease. This is a definite "keeper" and a "must have" book for the newly diagnosed.

There is alot of information in this book. One thing that makes this book different than the other GF books I have read: it lists the different products and where you can purchase these products either by phone or internet. The descriptions of different kinds of flour and where to purchase them is wonderful.
