I reported this week on a new iPHONE application, My Grocery Master, which allows users to locate gluten-free foods and brands according to zip code. The application claimed to not only allow users to locate gluten-free and lactose-free food items in popular grocery stores nationwide, but it also claimed to help users locate the product via detailed driving directions, all for an annual fee of $4.99.

While this iPHONE application (also available for iPAD and iTOUCH) purported to aide gluten-free consumers in their quest for all things allergen-free, it seems the app isn't all it's cracked up to be. (more…)

Whenever asked what product is thought to be missing from the thousands of available gluten-free products, my number one response is always gluten-free pita bread. In my 13 years on the gluten-free diet finding out about GFL Foods, Inc. gluten-free pita bread made my diagnosis. Gluten-free pita bread is one product that this Examiner has truly missed and is thrilled it has become available in the gluten-free market.

Rami Aharon, owner of GFL Foods, Inc., set out to create a gluten-free pita when his son was diagnosed with Celiac Disease. After several attempts, they finally created what they considered to be the 'best ever gluten-free pita' and this Examiner agrees. (more…)
