New App Helps Celiac Sufferers Track Gluten-free Expenses

Celiac.com 05/05/2016 - Frustrated by the process of tracking gluten-free expenses in hopes of using the Canadian government's tax credit, which entitles people with celiac disease to claim the incremental costs, accountant Justin Gravelle has released an app called Celitax, designed to help people with celiac disease easily track their everyday gluten-free purchases.

Photo:CC--Keng SusumpowIn Canada, people who are gluten-intolerant, and can provide the government with proof, such as a medical diagnosis of celiac disease, are entitled to the incremental cost difference between gluten-free and non-gluten free products.

However, tracking those expenses over the year can be messy and frustrating. Enter Celitax.

The app is currently available for iPhones, with an Android version to follow. The app digitizes receipts and stores them inside the app, allowing users to review or download them at any time and calculate their gluten-free tax credit in one click.

A user simply takes a photo of their receipt, which is stored in the app for safe keeping. Next, they input their gluten-free purchases into self-created custom categories based on their purchasing habits.

The Canadian government hasn't set average prices for non-gluten-free foods, Gravelle says, so users have to input an estimate themselves so the app can calculate their tax credit.

Still, sounds a lot better than digging through a pile of paper receipts at the end of the year to document your gluten-free expenses.

I've lost some of my sense of taste due most likely to zinc deficiency from not eating beef for a couple of years. Zinc supplement doesn't seem to help, but eating .5 to 1 lb of beef per day definitely does help. I noticed a positive change within days of eating beef. I don't know if your diet in...
