Gluten Free Food Manufacturing & Packaging Made Easier

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.
Raymond-Hadley Corporation is now certified to provide gluten free ingredients and production and packaging services for clients requiring gluten free products.
Food companies and food production plants face a multitude of challenges in not only acquiring gluten-free ingredients but in the process of gluten-free food production itself, which is why the recent certification of the Raymond-Hadley Corporation is exciting and welcome news for the industry.
The services Raymond-Hadley has to offer the gluten-free food producer are many. Their gluten free ingredient stock is extensive and includes both commodity, such as beans and flours, and more unusual ingredients, such as ethnic spices. The company also provides gluten free certified production services including formulation and blending of dry mixes and packaging procedures.
Currently the Raymond-Hadley customer client base includes United States and Central and South American companies. Certification by the Gluten Intolerance Group®, the reigning force behind the national standard for safe gluten levels in food products, has provided the company a valuable niche in the food manufacturing industry.
