Mouthwatering Gluten-Free Recipes From French Meadow Bakery

MISSION, KS--(Marketwire - May 16, 2011) - (Family Features) Celiac Disease is one of the most common genetic conditions in the world. In fact, according to the Mayo Clinic, 1 in every 100 people is living with Celiac Disease, 97 percent of whom will go undiagnosed.

Celiac disease is an autoimmune condition that causes the body to react to proteins in gluten -- found in wheat, rye and barley, among other foods -- as though they are a danger to the body, damaging the intestines and causing discomfort. Those living with Celiac Disease, or any type of gluten intolerance, must avoiding eating foods with gluten as they aggravate the condition.

Fortunately, there are a growing number of products available that make it easier to enjoy eating gluten-free foods. For example, French Meadow Bakery products, including breads, pizza crust, tortillas, sweet treats and more carry the seal of the Gluten-Free Certification Organization (www.gfco.org.)

These two recipes are inspiration for nutritious and flavorful gluten-free creations. For more information about Celiac Disease, please visit www.Celiac.org, www.gluten.net and www.celiaccentral.org.
