May 3, 2017 – It’s Celiac Awareness Month, and we’re giving a little extra recognition to our gluten-free shoppers. Celiac Disease is a serious autoimmune disease triggered by eating gluten (a protein found in wheat, barley and rye). When people with Celiac Disease eat gluten (even in teeny tiny amounts) the body triggers an immune response attacking the small intestine. This can lead to an array of unpleasant symptoms and potentially be life-threatening. The only treatment for individuals with Celiac Disease is following a gluten-free diet. Which is why we love that those following a gluten-free diet can still enjoy their favorite foods with tasty gluten-free products from our exclusive liveGfree brand!
Whether you were just diagnosed with Celiac Disease, or an old pro at eating gluten-free, ALDI has what you need to simplify gluten-free shopping. As a follower of a gluten-free diet myself, I’ve pulled together a list of my favorite ALDI products that are on my weekly shopping list. Start by stocking up on foods inherently free of gluten like fresh produce and fresh meat. Then, build in pantry staples and a variety of products from the liveGfree line to round out your shopping cart. Don’t forget to throw in a few treats, too!
