At Price Chopper, we know how hard it can be to shop and cook when you are avoiding gluten, a type of protein found in most grains, cereals, and breads made with wheat, barley or rye. We offer this collection of information and hands-on advice to anyone committed to following a gluten-free diet, so you can stay healthy and still enjoy the foods you love.

About Celiac Disease and Gluten Intolerance

One in 133 Americans has celiac disease., an autoimmune disease that damages the small intestine and causes nutrition deficiencies. People with celiac disease can't tolerate gluten, and the only treatment for those who are diagnosed with celiac disease is to maintain a strict gluten-free diet. Gluten Intolerance, a separate disorder, also requires a gluten-free diet, but does not cause the same damage or deficiencies as celiac disease.
