Over 1 million Americans may have intolerance for gluten, a common ingredient in more foods than people may realize. Gluten is a protein found in all wheat, rye, barley, and oat products. The only medically acceptable treatment for gluten intolerance and Celiac Disease is to eliminate all gluten from the diet. Many people with other conditions may also benefit from a gluten and wheat-free diet, including Attention Deficit Disorder, Multiple Sclerosis, Lactose Intolerance, Autism, chronic fatigue, indigestion and malnutrition.

Wheat allergy is an abnormal immune system reaction to one or more proteins found in wheat. Allergy to wheat is one of the more common food allergies in children. Avoiding wheat is the primary treatment for wheat allergy. Wheat allergy is different from a disorder known as Celiac Disease, an immune system reaction that causes inflammation in the small intestines when a person eats any food containing gluten, one type of protein found in wheat.

So many people are discovering or being diagnosed with intolerance to wheat and gluten products. Many of life's culinary enjoyments are eliminated from their daily diet. People can learn to live without some of these things by replacing them with Wheat/Gluten-free ingredients and still enjoy pasta, pizza and crepes. Learn how to prepare basic recipes with gluten-free replacements as well as how to explore new gluten-free ingredients.

Call the Laconia Adult Education Office at 524-5712 to enroll in this exciting and innovative Gluten-Free cooking class that begins on Tuesday, September 24.
