In May, Celiac Awareness Month raises awareness about celiac disease, a genetic autoimmune disease which damages the small intestine- an immune reaction to gluten, a protein found in wheat, rye, and barley. In addition to people with Celiac Disease, there are also a large number of people that are sensitive to gluten and therefore avoid it in their diets. Gluten can be found in a range of products, but Ancient Harvest is happy to say that our products are completely gluten-free, without sacrificing on flavor. We know how hard it is for those who battle with this on a daily basis, which is why we are happy to be able to offer a wide range of products that the whole family can enjoy. We produce and pack all of our products in accordance with gluten-free standards, and all of our corn-quinoa pasta varieties are certified gluten-free and produced in gluten-free facilities. We can breathe easy knowing that these products are delicious and also safe to eat for people with celiac disease and gluten sensitivity.
