CELIAC SPRUE ASSOCIATION FOOD FAIR
Incredible, Edible Gluten-Free Food Fair! TM
The Denver Metro Chapter of CSA/ USA is hosting its annual gluten-free food fair which will spotlight many of the gluten-free options available to individuals with Celiac Disease and Gluten Intolerance. The Fair will be held at the Denver Mart, Expo Hall II, 451 E. 58th Ave. Denver on Sunday August 17, 2014 from 10:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.
Celiac disease is the most common genetic, autoimmune disease, affecting approximately 1 in 100 people. It is caused by ingestion of gluten (a protein found in wheat, barley, rye and most oats), and is characterized by damage to the digestive system, problems with absorbing nutrients. It can affect multiple systems of the body. Gluten Intolerance is thought to affect far more people, causing similar digestive symptoms and other health problems.
The Fair will feature local and national vendors who serve the gluten-free market. Vendors provide samples, showcase their newest product lines, give out coupons and sell cookbooks. Last year, there were more than 3,500 participants. Over 100 vendors are scheduled for this year.
Mark your calendar to attend this fun, free and informative event.
