    Much has changed since 1995, when Scott Adams started Celiac.com as an online information resource and forum for about celiac disease and gluten-free living.

    The site was originally launched in August of 1995, on Hooked.net, as "Scott's Celiac Page," and became "Celiac.com" in 1997, first as the "Celiac Support Page,” then as the site we know and love today.

    While the look and feel of celiac.com has changed over the years, what hasn’t changed is our commitment to bringing you the best, most accurate information on celiac disease and living on a gluten-free diet. 

    Over the years, our celiac and gluten-free forum, together with timely, informative articles, gluten-free recipes, and medical and scientific summaries have helped million of people with celiac disease to get accurate, up-to-date information, and to live better, healthier lives on a gluten-free diet. 

    We couldn’t be more proud of the community we have nurtured. We hope you’re proud to be a part of it, and we hope to bring you many more years of excellent service. 

    Have you been with us long? Are you new? We’d love to hear how you got here, and how celiac.com has helped to make your life with celiac disease just a little bit better, so don’t hesitate to wish us a happy anniversary, and to share your story in the comments below.

  • About Me

    Scott Adams was diagnosed with celiac disease in 1994, and, due to the nearly total lack of information available at that time, was forced to become an expert on the disease in order to recover. In 1995 he launched the site that later became Celiac.com to help as many people as possible with celiac disease get diagnosed so they can begin to live happy, healthy gluten-free lives.  He is co-author of the book Cereal Killers, and founder and publisher of the (formerly paper) newsletter Journal of Gluten Sensitivity. In 1998 he founded The Gluten-Free Mall which he sold in 2014. Celiac.com does not sell any products, and is 100% advertiser supported.

    Celiac.com 06/05/2020 (Updated. originally published 02/20/2015) - There's a lot of confusion about which alcoholic beverages are gluten-free, and safe for people with celiac disease. Here's Celiac.com's latest list of gluten-free, gluten-safe beer, wine and alcohol.
    Gluten-Free Beer
    In the United States, products labeled gluten-free must not contain or be made from wheat, rye or barley. That means many beers cannot be labeled gluten-free. Beers made with gluten-free ingredients and are gluten-free and can be labeled gluten-free.
    Gluten-Removed Beer
    A number of beers are treated with enzymes to break down gluten. These b...
