Celiac disease is an immune disease where the consumption of gluten causes damage to the small intestines. Because gluten is a protein found in wheat, barley and rye- core ingredients for a majority of foods, it if often difficult for those with Celiac disease to find convenient and acceptable foods. Elizabeth Fradin ran into this issue when her six-year-old daughter was diagnosed with Celiac disease. It was this event that caused Fradin to begin gluten-free cooking. Today, she owns and operates her own company Beth Bakes. Within her business she creates artisanal crackers that are hand crafted, gluten-free, vegan, nut-free, soy-free, non-GMO and made with nutritious whole grains! There a variety of flavors as well including, Crispy Classic, Pumpkin Seed Cumin and Currant Fennel.
Celiac Awareness Month is celebrated each May. It is supported by the National Foundation for Celiac Awareness and raises awareness while taking a moment to acknowledge those affected. Support the cause while enjoying a naturally healthy and scrumptious snack!
