The definitive guide to the gluten-free lifestyle, completely revised and updated for the 2.2 million Americans with celiac disease

According to a landmark 2003 National Institutes of Health study, 2.2 million Americans suffer from celiac disease, an allergy to the protein gluten found in wheat. Since this book was first published in 1995 (as Against the Grain), Jax Peters Lowell has been helping celiacs follow a gluten-free diet with creativity, resourcefulness, and humor.

This edition includes chapters covering

  • the latest research into celiac disease, and myths that have been debunked
  • how to eat out happily, including a short course in restaurant assertiveness training
  • how to eat in happily, including a discussion of online and mail order suppliers and negotiating the supermarket as a celiac
  • dozens of delicious new recipes
  • drugs, cosmetics, and other products tested for celiac-safety
  • a thoroughly updated resource section

Tens of thousands of celiacs have already enhanced their lives with Lowell's authoritative, witty, and practical guide. The Gluten-free Bible promises to bring relief to the new gluten-intolerant generation.
