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!!
The authors writing is easy and to the point, the government regulations--from various countries--is not, but the authors rescue you there with overviews. It's easy to get the information you're looking for from the ToC. Some of the tables were a bit weird but when you realized some are sorted alphabetically and some by nutrition content it started making sense.
The best was the explanation of the various foods contained inside the pre-packaged foods and there was the list of gluten-free flours! What they were, what they brought to a recipie (how they tasted) and what they worked best with.

I am celiac and this book has become more than a cooking companion. It is also a dietary companion.
