GIG does an excellent job of supporting those with gluten intolerance by making information readily available to assist in living a gluten free lifestyle. They also keep up to date on the latest research in the field and summarize that information for those who subscribe to the quarterly newsletter. They have also organized a group to certify gluten free products and another one to list restaurants that understand the gluten free diet and offer safe GF meals to customers.

When I was diagnosed with Celiac disease, I had so many questions. It was confusing to try to figure out what I could and could not eat. The Gluten Intolerance Group was extremely helpful in guiding me through the steps I needed to take to live the new lifestyle that I needed to live. They are an invaluable resource to the 1 in 120 people in this country who have Celiac Disease.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the ease in which I adapted to the gluten free lifestyle.
