It seems that the publicity for celiac/gluten intolerance has become a two edged sword. It's good for advancing research and awareness but, when the mainstream media get their teeth in it becomes a diet fad, a lifestyle choice and a food companies stock value. I believe only a small amount of the world's population actually realizes that it is a disease that demands a gluten free diet.

I'm very glad that these companies are being called out on this matter. Thanks for posting the article.
