    Reviewed and edited by a celiac disease expert.

    Celiac.com 09/04/2013 - Just in, this little gem from thedailymeal.com: News that one in three Americans are avoiding or reducing gluten in their diets seems to have gotten through to major American dough manufacturer Pillsbury, which says it will be releasing a line of refrigerated gluten-free items, including pie and pastry dough, chocolate chip cookie dough, and thin crust pizza.

    Wiki Media CommonsPillsbury will make these allergen-free items available at mass scale in local and chain grocers this month. Among other groups, these products are likely aimed at regaining many of the folks who love Pillsbury's croissants and biscuits, but who are now gluten-free.

    Additionally, the company is also partnering with chef Cat Cora, and Gluten-free advocate Danna Korn to develop gluten-free recipes that highlight Pillsbury's products.

    When asked by reporters for The Daily Meal if she had any plans to release a gluten-free cookbook, Cora said, “Maybe I will! She says her media team is always on the lookout for vegan and gluten-free recipe opportunities and that she hasn't seen many gluten-free cookbooks out there.

    Check in with celiac.com for more news on Pilsbury's gluten-free efforts, and on Cat Cora's potential gluten-free cookbook.

    This news is two-edged. On the one hand, those who are grain sensitive still may have issues with joint/muscle inflammation and insulin sensitivity. On the other hand, it's really nice to occasionally be able to indulge and to take something to a gathering that everyone can enjoy. Thanks to Pillsbury for this recognition that there is a growing number of folks who cannot tolerate gluten. Certainly hope that GIANT FOODS corporation/Carlisle, PA have been notified. I'm a faithful customer and am able to buy more and more of their products. They, too, are a great company!

    My wife and I are both gluten free. Our local Kroger has had this product for about a month now and we love them. They are all good but the pizza dough, which stuck to the pan. we have bought several tubs of the pastry dough as well as the chocolate chip cookies. It's fast, easy, and gluten free.

    Are the Pillsbury facilities dedicated to only gluten free manufacture or are they shared with gluten products? I would need to know that before I could trust these products.

    I just hope that none of these items contain GMO corn or soy, or Aspartame, HFCS or MSG?? Also better if they do not contain Lactose. gluten-free products should be hypoallergenic as many on gluten-free diets have multiple allergies.

    Thank you Ranchers Wife.  Since I'm asymptomatic, I would not know if I had gluten. I cannot imagine having to worry about getting sick from cross-contamination. 
    Hi Jenna1028, They test for DH by taking a small skin biopsy from clear skin next to a lesion.  If you have DH, you have celiac disease.  But, you need to be eating a gluten diet for 12 weeks (gluten challenge) before getting the skin bi...
