An estimated one in 133 people in the US suffer from celiac disease and the number is soaring, with 83% undiagnosed or misdiagnosed with other conditions. There is no treatment for the disease other than strict, 100% avoidance of gluten, not an easy task in today’s world of processed foods.
Jules Shepard is one of the foremost authorities on gluten-free living. A celiac sufferer herself diagnosed in 1999, she pioneered her own gluten-free flour formulations in addition to founding a blog and podcast dedicated to successfully adopting and maintaining a gluten-free lifestyle.
Besides a wonderful recipe library including a separate bread category, Jules’ site also provides information that helps tease the fact from fiction regarding celiac and gluten-free fads and trends.
