State College Celiac Support Group with Anne Roland Lee

Casey, Hailey, and I attended last night’s Celiac Support Group Meeting featuring guest speaker Anne Roland Lee from Schar Foods.  It was great to see such a huge turnout for this meeting too.  Thanks to all those that helped get the word.  Anne brought lots of free Schar Foods samples for the group to try out too.

Anne Roland Lee spoke about, “The Nutritional Aspects of the Gluten Free Diet”.  She spoke about some really interesting topics that Casey and I haven’t thought about, such as the topic of how a celiac might not be getting the nutrition that they need.  I didn’t think about it, but she mentioned how many of the gluten-free flours aren’t fortified like the glutenous ones, which are regulated by the FDA to be enriched.  This might be one reason Casey is still often fatigued… maybe Casey needs additional supplements to counter the less nutritious gluten-free flours… we’ll see.
