Gluten-Free Living is October's Magazine of the Month
Our magazine of the month for October is Gluten-Free Living, which provides support and recipes for those diagnosed with Celiac Disease or other related disorders and allergies. In addition to Carnegie-Stout's subscription, you can check out their website: www.glutenfreeliving.com
Not sure what glutens or Celiac Disease are? Have you stood in the grocery store trying to understand what it means for a pizza to be gluten free? Looking for a specific gluten-free recipe, and you couldn't find it in Gluten-Free Living? Carnegie-Stout has a collection of books on Celiac Disease and Gluten-Free diets for you to check out!
Just wondering what a gluten is? Wikipedia provides the answer: "Gluten (from Latin gluten, "glue") is a protein composite found in foods processed from wheat and related grain species, including barley and rye. It gives elasticity to dough, helping it to rise and to keep its shape, and often gives the final product a chewy texture. Gluten may also be found in some cosmetics or dermatological preparations."
Looking for an excuse to try out a gluten-free recipe? October 12th is World Egg Day! Like gluten, eggs can provide a binding element in a recipe, which makes them a staple in many gluten-free recipes. The American Egg Board and the International Egg Commission have even more ideas for how you can celebrate World Egg Day.
