The Great Debate: More or Less Sensitive and Celiac

Season 1, Ep. 1077

On today's Celiac Project Podcast:

Are there really people with celiac disease who are "more sensitive" than others? Mike shares his latest family get-together and how even after 14 years of being diagnosed with celiac disease, making a documentary, having a podcast and otherwise shouting from the rooftops, this condition can still be confusing--even for folks who think they understand the disease. Mike and Cam also talk about the level of awareness of Crohn's and Colitis as they relate to celiac disease, and why we celebrate Celiac Awareness Day, which was just last Wednesday.

  • 1116. Product Warning: Whole Foods Flaxseed

    From Gluten Free Watchdog: Product Warning for Whole Foods 365 organic whole flaxseed for errant grain. This product is NOT labeled gluten-free. The grains in the photo appear to be wild oats but it is hard to know for sure without physically examining and testing them. Under U.S. standards, flaxseed is allowed to contain a certain percentage of “other” grain, including wheat, barley, rye, oats, and wild oats. The same information also applies to other grains, seeds, and legumes. This is why it is very important to choose (whenever possible) naturally gluten-free grains, etc. that are labeled gluten-free.Please follow Gluten Free Watchdog on social media and at

  • 1112. Fighting Hunger on Giving Tuesday

    Helping out a Gluten Free Food Pantry is a great activity in honor of Giving Tuesday. There are a handful across the country that could use our help! Gluten Free and allergy-friendly foods can cost up to 450% more then their counterpart products. This means that for some individuals and families, a medical diagnosis requiring a gluten free diet can lead to a severe financial strain. Gluten free food is rarely available at food pantries, leaving few options for getting affordable, safe hunger relief. Low – income individuals are often forced to choose between health and hunger. Thankfully, a few gluten free, allergy-friendly food banks have opened across the country to address this need. Please consider helping one of the dedicated food pantries that serve those living with food scarcity and a dietary restrictions.S.A.F.E.
