Celiac Disease Awareness Month - May 26, 2014

Each day this month, I will be posting something about Celiac Disease.

Day 26:

Some individuals with celiac disease continue to experience recurring symptoms. According to the website for the Celiac Disease Foundation (CDF), the most common reason is continued gluten ingestion.

The most common reason for persistent symptoms is continuing to ingest gluten, either knowingly or unknowingly.  Patients are encouraged to meet with a dietitian knowledgeable about celiac disease and the gluten-free diet to learn about the “hidden” source of gluten.

Did you discover you were still unknowingly ingesting gluten after you started the gluten-free diet? What was the "offending" product?
