In honor of National Celiac Awareness Month, we’re partnering with Bob’s Red Mill to bring you some of our best celiac-friendly breakfast ideas. Join us this week for celiac-friendly giveaways, recipes and a Twitter chat!
Did you know that lactose intolerance is common for people with celiac disease? While the conditions aren’t always linked and not every person with celiac disease is lactose intolerant, someone can suffer from both or sometimes the lactose intolerance is a side-effect of celiac disease. Some people develop a lactose intolerance when celiac disease goes untreated because of damage to the small intestine. Sometimes lactose intolerance subsides after going gluten-free for an extended time because the intestines have time to heal and are able to properly digest lactose. Other people with celiac disease just aren’t able to properly digest gluten or casein (the protein in milk) and suffer from both conditions.
For those who are both gluten- and dairy-free, Pacific makes a wide range of non-dairy beverages, including our Almond and Hemp Non-Dairy Beverages that are newly available in convenient 8-ounce sizes! Luckily, our non-dairy beverages are tasty, healthful, and vegan so you don’t have to sacrifice in either taste or nutrition. Just open them up and let the creamy goodness flow.
Bob’s Red Mill recently launched some tasty, gluten-free granolas. Their Apple Blueberry Granola and Honey Oat Granola are a scrumptious and easy way to enjoy the goodness of whole grains without gluten! Their wholesome granolas are perfect to eat as a hot or cold cereal, with our non-dairy beverages or straight out of the bag. The crunchy clusters and delicate, lightly-sweet flavor will keep you reaching for more.
You’ll have EIGHT chances to win from now until Friday May 9th. Just visit Pacific Foods and Bob’s Red Mill on Facebook, comment on the giveaway posts and you’ll be entered to win this delicious prize package:
