GOSH! I am soooooo glad I didn't have her as a teacher when I was a kid! There were many times I clogged the toilet!!! (prior to being dx with celiac)... Luckily my teachers would call in the school's maintenance man to take care of it and not say anything to the class. I would have just DIED of embarrassment if they had! I am puzzled why they felt they had to mention celiac in that article, also if her diet was being properly monitored by said teacher then she probably wouldn't have clogged the toilet in the first place!

I guess the fact that she had celiac disease, characterized by gastrointestinal symptoms, such as diarrhea, boosts their case....this is a child who has a problem with loose stools and the such, and then the teacher was insensitive to the condition, not to mention being generally out of line in asking any five-year-old to do that.

As far as school and gluten intolerance the more that things change the more they stay the same. School sucked for me when I was a kid and I see it sucked for that little girl. I hope her parents make sure that all of her future teachers understand her condition and NEVER cut the teachers any slack whatsoever.

Does anybody know if this has taken effect?Manufacturers will find the activity on their consumer hot lines decreasing dramatically as they 'tell all' on their labels," according to Hillson who is also a celiac and the mother of a celiac teenager.

Representative Nita Lowey (NY) a sponsor of the bill, explains "With no treatment for celiac disease, the only alternative is to follow a strict gluten-free diet a difficult task considering that food ingredient statements are written for scientists, not consumers. Celiac sufferers should have adequate, clear information at their fingertips."

The Gluten-Free Pantry, based in Glastonbury, CT, understands this need only too well, as the company has been providing safe, gluten-free products for people for more than 11 years. "We have watched our business grow continually as more people are diagnosed with celiac disease," says Hillson. The Gluten-Free Pantry carries more than 400 items that are suitable for people who cannot eat wheat and gluten.

Hillson and fellow members of ACTF were also on hand in June when a statement was issued from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) indicating that celiac disease is under-diagnosed and suggesting that up to 3 million people have the disease. In a landmark consensus statement, NIH called for greater physician and public awareness and earlier testing for the disease.

Celiac Disease is a digestive disorder that is triggered by eating the protein, gluten, which is found in the grains wheat, rye and barley. There is no cure for the disease, but it can be controlled through strict avoidance of foods that contain gluten. The new labeling bill requires listing any of the top eight food allergens by their common name if they are present in a product: milk, egg, peanuts, tree nuts, fish, shellfish, soy, and wheat. Disclosure of wheat covers about 90% of products that celiacs must avoid.

Hillson founded the Gluten-Free Pantry when "there was very little available for people on a gluten-free diet." Today the company offers a wide range of gourmet baking mixes, skillet meals, spice blends, pasta, cookies, breads, cereals and more. "This is just the proverbial tip of the iceberg in the range of foods we need to offer," says Hillson who is continually developing new products for her customers.

"This food labeling bill will open a whole new world of possibilities for "gluten-free consumers," she adds.

I went to this one, and did not like what I read. The lists that were provided just didn't seem to jive with a celiac diet, and the recipe with gram flour looked so wrong! Unless gram flour and graham flour are different flours, why is a wheat-containing recipe being listed for gluten intolerances?!? Please, someone, read the article, and correct me if I'm wrong!

gram flour (besan) Made from chickpeas


GRAHAM flour (WHEAT) Graham flours are WHEAT flours, not to be confused with gram flour from chickpeas.
