Gluten-Free in the 21st Century

For those seeking guidance and support in maintaining a gluten-free diet, the web has a lot to offer!  Here is a sampling of websites which cater to the GF lifestyle.  Check them out!

www.celiac.org: Celiac Disease Foundation's website.  "Celiac Disease Foundation (CDF) is a highly-regarded national organization recognized throughout the world. CDF strives to promote awareness and build a supportive community for patients, families and health care professionals. CDF is actively involved in advocating for patient concerns and networking with other national and international organizations."

www.gfcfdiet.com: "Since 1999, this website, www.GFCFDiet.com has been a free resource for any parent who needs support implementing a gluten free - casein free diet ( GFCF Diet ). It provides a central location for parents to find other parents who are also using Dietary Therapy. It is the largest free resource of its kind on the Internet, not only providing lists of products to help guide you through the Grocery Stores (ALWAYS READ LABELS!!) but other relevant information which will help every parent learn about Dietary Intervention.

Our website support forum,"GFCF Kids" was founded in December 1998 and now has a membership of over 12,500 families! It is free and easy to join. The principle aim of this list is to provide a discussion forum for parents of children with Autistic Spectrum Disorders who are avoiding gluten and casein and other foods or ingredients in their children's diets." 

www.gluten.net : The mission of the Gluten Intolerance Group of North America® is to provide support to persons with gluten intolerances, including celiac disease, dermatitis herpetiformis, and other gluten sensitivities, in order to live healthy lives.

www.glutenfreeorganics.blogspot.com: My family is entirely gluten-free now and I am searching to find the quality, organic whole-grain food we have enjoyed. I will be using this blog to have a discussion about all aspects of GF living including school, eating out and how to alter beloved recipes for our new GF life. Enjoy. (Blog by Dr. Jean McFadden Layton, a naturopathic physician in Bellingham, WA.)

www.glutenfreerestaurants.org: The Gluten-Free Restaurant Awareness Program (GFRAP) facilitates a relationship between individuals with celiac disease and other forms of gluten intolerance, and restaurants. The relationship builds a win-win opportunity for restaurants to provide service to people following a gluten-free diet, and to gain increased patronage. Participating restaurants are able to provide gluten-free meals from their regular meals. GFRAP is a program of the Gluten Intolerance Group of North America.

Participating GFRAP restaurants enthusiastically welcome gluten-free diners. On this site you will find links, directions and other valuable information about each participating GFRAP restaurant.

By working together, using consistent guidelines and listing participating restaurants on one website, we are creating a growing network that allows those following a gluten-free diet to socialize and travel with more confidence in dining away from home.
