Gluten is a protein found in wheat, barley, rye, malts and triticale which are underlying causes for Celiac disease. Celiac disease is a digestive disease that damages the small intestine and interferes with absorption of nutrients from food. Although symptoms vary, most common ones include abdominal bloating and pain, chronic diarrhea, vomiting, constipation, weight loss, fatigue, bone or joint pain, depression or anxiety.
A gluten-free diet is the only medically accepted treatment for celiac disease. Despite the fact that there's a variety of Gluten Free foods and mixes are present in the market today, most are gritty, lacking texture and taste. Sof'ella Foods have always been a true believer of all natural, gourmet, easy to make and accessible food for everyone. And after personal experiences with family friends and children's food allergies, Sof'ella Foods took it upon itself to research and develop its own brand of Gluten Free flours to ensure everyone could once again enjoy simple foods such as Chocolate Cake, Pancakes, Muffins and Pizza. Sof'ella Foods is committed to do its share for Gluten Free Community and teaming up with Generation Rescue, Celiac.com and bloggers to donate mixes and raise awareness for better and healthy diets.
