In 1994 I was diagnosed with celiac disease, which led me to create Celiac.com in 1995. I created this site for a single purpose: To help as many people as possible with celiac disease get diagnosed so they can begin to live happy, healthy gluten-free lives. Celiac.com was the first site on the Internet dedicated solely to celiac disease, and since then it has become an invaluable resource to people worldwide who seek information about celiac disease and the gluten-free diet.
In 1998 I created The Gluten-Free Mall, Your Special Diet Superstore! which was also another Internet first—it was the first gluten-free food site to offer a shopping cart-style interface, and the ability for people to order gluten-free products manufactured by many different companies at a single Web site.
I am also co-author of the book Cereal Killers, and founder and publisher of Journal of Gluten Sensitivity.

At Gia's Gluten Free Bakery, we bake everything from scratch in our dedicated gluten free kitchen using only certified gluten free or ELSA tested all natural ingredients. Our local customers tell us our gluten free baked goods are better than those at most wheat bakeries, and we think you'll agree! Our gluten free online ordering menu features muffins including blueberry, raspberry, lemon poppy seed, banana bread, and three new savory muffin flavors. Cookie varieties are the classic chocolate chip, peanut butter, and oatmeal raisin, in addition to plain and chocolate dipped macaroons.
Our new savory muffins are gluten free, sugar free and made with ancient grains. They make a delicious, healthy snack or go great as a side item with soup or salad. They are available in three varieties: Jalapeno & Cheddar, Sun-dried Tomato & Feta Cheese, and Kalamata Olive, Pesto & Parmesan.
Located in Southern Oregon, Gia's Gluten Free Bakery was started in 2010 by Janice “Gia” Thorsell and her son Doug. Gia was diagnosed with celiac disease over 30 years ago and almost died from malnutrition by the time she was finally diagnosed. Her goal in starting her bakery was to make baked goods that tasted as good or better than what can be found in wheat bakeries. Once you try Gia's gluten free baked goods, you will know she succeeded!
