5/8/2012 9:29 PM ET (RTTNews) - Domino’s new gluten-free pizza should not be eaten by people with Celiac disease, the company said in a statement. Apparently, the first gluten-free pizza being offered by national pizza chain is designed for people with gluten sensitivity, as opposed to those with full-blown Celiac disease.
Despite the fact that the crust are gluten free, Domino’s can’t guarantee that no gluten will come into contact with the pizza, which could be dangerous for those with the gluten allergy. (more…)

Dr. O’Bryan’s specialty is in teaching the many manifestations of gluten sensitivity and celiac disease as they occur inside and outside of the (more…)
Quinoa is a very nutritious food, being a complete protein, but it can have a rather acrid flavour. This is caused by the coating the seed has to discourage insects from eating it. If you rinse whole quinoa you can get rid of this. I have used rinsed quinoa in these muffins, which I then toasted to a light brown before adding to the flour. The whole quinoa gives a crunchy texture. If you don’t want this blitz the quinoa in a blender to get a smooth texture.

Editor’s Note: While Domino’s Pizza’s new offering is made from certified gluten-free crusts, manufacturing processes cannot allow the company to guarantee that cross contamination does not occur. Glutenfreeworks.com does not recommend consuming gluten to people with any type of gluten sensitivity, whether or not they are diagnosed celiac disease.
ANN ARBOR, Mich., May 7, 2012 – Domino’s Pizza is responding to the needs of choice consumers, today launching a Gluten Free Crust available in all of its nearly 5,000 U.S. stores and becoming the first national pizza delivery chain to offer such a product.

NFCA’s GREAT Kitchens is an official credentialing program that has expanded to include restaurants offering (more…)
Guess what I was doing the other day? Browsing Twitter! Imagine that? I was instantly drawn to these Easy Cinnamon Muffins that Jo-Lynne shared. I knew that Jon would love them, so I pre-heated my oven and got down to work.
Jo-Lynne’s recipe is not gluten-free, so I converted it to be gluten-free using Gluten-Free Bisquick. Since the GF Bisquick already has leavening & salt in it, I omitted the baking powder & salt in her recipe. Hindsight says that this may have not been the wisest choice, but the end result was fantastic, so I am not too worried about it. Adding the (more…)
National Foundation for Celiac Awareness Announces gluten-free credentialing to address widespread confusion in restaurant industry
New Credentialing Designed to Increase Food Safety Practices for those with Celiac Disease, Gluten Sensitivity and Gluten-Free Nutritional Preferences
Ambler, Pa. – April 25, 2012– National Foundation for Celiac Awareness (NFCA), the non-profit organization dedicated to raising awareness and improving the lives of those of celiac disease and non-celiac gluten sensitivity, announces a gluten-free credentialing program that will enable restaurants to manage the growing interest around gluten-free menu items. There are inconsistent standards, a lack of understanding of the medical elements of a gluten-free diet and too often, a lack of transparency about kitchen practices within the restaurant sector that has put the health of patients with celiac disease and gluten sensitivity at risk.
“Gluten-free families, especially those who are newly diagnosed, struggle with maintaining the diet even at home,” says Dr. Ritu Verma, Pediatric Gastroenterologist at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia and a member of NFCA’s Medical and Scientific Advisory Board. “While eating out is such an integrated part of our social fabric, the lack of consistent standards creates a stressful experience that (more…)
I can’t believe that it has taken me this long to try Porta Via Italian Kitchen since hearing for the past year that they have amazing gluten-free pizza. But I’ve been leaning towards a high raw/vegan diet, so I’ve been less attracted to restaurants claiming to have the next best gf crust. Yawn…
Having guests in town gave us the perfect opportunity to try Porta Via Italian Kitchen. I was astounded that they not only had gluten-free pizza, but gluten-free pasta as well.
