Forget Al Queda folks, we have a new public enemy #1…Gluten!
Cite any ailment or problem and you're likely to hear it;
Whoever the marketing person is for gluten-free, I want to hire them because they have done a jam-up job. Wait, does jam have gluten in it? Maybe I shouldn't use it.
Sure, there are people (approx 1% of Americans) that have celiac disease and a gluten-free diet is essential for their quality of life. But according to Peter H.R. Green, MD, director of the Celiac Disease Center at Columbia University…"most of the people who reach for gluten-free products don’t have celiac disease and or even a sensitivity to wheat."
So, let's back off the gluten attack a little because frankly, I like knowing that my Nilla Wafers are packed with gluten…it's probably what gives them that tasty texture when I saturate those delicious, wheat-filled cookies in my mouth with my lactose-laden milk.
