March 2012….Well I did have good intentions when it came to
a “monthly” newsletter, but February snuck by without me sending one outL

This month I’d like to address the issue of “Gluten”.  Before I started this company I had no
concept of how many people were affected by gluten in their diets.  It is overwhelming!!!!  There is so much data on gluten intolerance
and celiac disease that I’m sure I can’t really do it justice, but I would
encourage you to research the effects on the body when TOO much gluten is
ingested.  There definitely is a place
for gluten in your diet if your body can tolerate it.

Gluten is often used as a “stabilizing agent” and will be
hidden in foods such as ice cream, ketchup and other processed foods.  Due to the addition of gluten to so many of
our foods, it is no wonder that our bodies are rebelling at the over abundance
of gluten.

Gluten is a special type of protein that
is commonly found in ryewheat, and barley. Therefore, it is found in most
types of cereals and in many types of bread. Not all foods from the grain
family, however, contain gluten. Examples of grains that do not have gluten include wild rice, corn, buckwheat, millet, amaranth, quinoateff, oatssoybeans, and sunflower seeds.

The formation of linkages
between the proteins glutenin and gliadin are what we commonly refer to as
gluten.

Dough has been made throughout the ages using
the gluten that naturally occurs in the grains wheat, rye and barley. This
protein holds baked goods together and gives them a good texture.

I personally believe that tampering with nature
by genetically modifying various grains has contributed to the recent spike in food allergies and celiac disease. We are changing genetic codes possibly making
it difficult for our bodies to interpret, assimilate and ultimately digest what
might be seen as foreign or “intruder” elements, potentially causing
allergic and auto-immune reactions.

For a great documentary
film on the genetic modification of food, I would recommend The Future of Food,
found at this website:

Having said
all that….we have a new “Gluten Free” soup
“MULLIGATAWNY”….it is amazing.
For those close by, stop by and add one to your pantry, and for those
far away…you will find it at our website on-line store.
