The Gluten-Free Mall, Announces Grand Re-Opening

NEW HOLLAND, PA. – The Gluten-Free Mall, which has offered the best in gluten-free products since 1989, is pleased to announce its grand re-opening under new ownership, but with the same commitment to providing the best in gluten-free products to our customers.

There will be a number of changes to the Mall, some happening immediately and some over the next few months. But in the midst of these, we will continue to offer the same high-quality products and commitment to customer satisfaction.

“We’re very excited about the changes coming to GlutenFreeMall.com and we think our many loyal customers will be, too,” says Sally McDonald, head of information technology for Gluten Free Mall. “Not only will shoppers continue to find everything they’ve grown to love about shopping with us, but they’ll also find new products, pricing and delivery options to make ordering from us even better. Through all the changes we’ve made and those yet to come, our commitment will always be to our customers’ satisfaction.”

As a part of our re-launch, the company will be making its shipping procedures more efficient, updating customer e-mail lists for better communication, and offering special promotional pricing and incentives to customers.

Since 1989, The Gluten Free Mall has offered convenient online shopping for those on gluten-free diets, with the best prices and selection of gluten-free, wheat-free, casein-free and other allergy-related health foods and special dietary products. All of our gluten-free products are specifically designed for those who must cut gluten from their diet because of celiac disease.

Celiac disease affects 1 in 133 Americans, with only 1 in 4,700 diagnosed. For those who go gluten free for life usually see eventual recovery.

The Gluten-Free Mall, Marks 10th Anniversary

The Gluten-Free Mall began in 1998 with the simple goal of providing people with gluten free and food allergy needs the highest quality, and widest range of foods free of wheat, rye and barley gluten, soy, dairy, eggs, corn, and other common allergens. At that time, doctors thought gluten intolerance and gluten allergy were rare, and that celiac disease affected just 40,000 people. The National Institutes of Health now estimates that about 3 million people (1 in 133) suffer from celiac disease, and that only a small fraction (3%) of celiac cases have been diagnosed, while 97% of celiac cases remain undiagnosed.

SANTA ROSA, CA, April 16, 2009 - Scott Adams is on a mission to make the world a better place for people on gluten-free diets due to celiac disease or food allergies. In 1995, after a string of well-meaning, but under-informed doctors had failed to explain the range of symptoms he was experiencing, Scott read something about celiac disease which finally led to his diagnosis. Celiac disease is an auto-immune disorder triggered by the proteins in wheat, barley, and rye, and treatment for it is a life-long gluten free diet.

In an effort to better understand celiac disease, and to help provide accurate, up-to-date information for others who may face it, Scott Adams founded Celiac.com, which became the first online resource dedicated solely to providing the latest, most reliable information on celiac disease and gluten-free living.

In 1998, dissatisfied with the selection and availability of gluten free food to support his diet, Scott founded The Gluten-Free Mall, with the simple goal of providing people with gluten free and food allergy needs the highest quality, and widest range of foods free of wheat, rye and barley gluten, soy, dairy, eggs, corn, and other common allergens.

At that time, doctors thought food allergies and gluten intolerance were rare, and that celiac disease affected just 40,000 people. In the last decade, the number of Americans diagnosed with celiac disease has nearly tripled, to at least 110,000 today, and that's just the tip of the iceberg. The National Institutes of Health now estimates that about 3 million people (1 in 133) suffer from celiac disease, and that only a small fraction (3%) of celiac cases have been diagnosed, while 97% of cases remain undiagnosed.

With awareness and diagnosis on the upswing, food manufacturers and retailers are scrambling to increase the number of gluten free food options. Since 2004, food retailers have added nearly 2500 new gluten free products to their shelves. In 2008 alone, retailers added more than 728 new gluten free products. Nielsen Co., reports that the gluten-free products sector increased 20% in the 12-month period ending June 14, to $1.75 billion from $1.46 billion the year before.

The market for food-allergy and intolerance products is projected to reach $3.9 billion this year according to New York research firm Packaged Facts. The market research company Mintel projects the market for gluten free food to maintain 15% to 25% annual growth through 2012.

It's not just people with food allergy, celiac disease and gluten intolerance hitting the checkout stand. Mintel estimates that nearly 10% of shoppers currently purchase gluten free foods, and Cynthia Kupper, executive director of the non-profit Gluten Intolerance Group of North America (gluten.net) says that 15% to 25% of shoppers are interested in purchasing gluten free foods--numbers far greater than the 1% of shoppers with celiac disease and gluten intolerance.

The Gluten-Free Mall now stocks nearly a thousand products designed specifically for people who need to eat gluten-free foods to treat celiac disease, autism, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADD, ADHD) or other health challenges. The Gluten-Free Mall offers products only from those gluten-free food manufacturers that demonstrate total commitment to producing the highest quality, best tasting gluten free products.

For more than 10 years The Gluten-Free Mall has offered the best prices and selection of gluten-free, wheat-free, casein-free and other allergy-related health foods and special dietary products on the Internet!

Celiac.com Kicks Off "Gluten Busters" Celiac Disease Awareness Campaign

Company Offers Gluten-free T-Shirts and Clothing in Effort to Boost Celiac Disease and Gluten-Intolerance Awareness.

SANTA ROSA, CA, April 17, 2007 - Celiac disease is one of the most common chronic health disorders in western countries. Celiac Disease affects at least 1-in-133 Americans, although only 1-in-4,700 is ever diagnosed. In most cases, treatment with a gluten-free diet leads to a full recovery. Despite the fact that around 3 million Americans have the disease, there is still a tremendous lack of awareness and understanding regarding both the condition and its treatment—a gluten-free diet.

In an effort to increase celiac disease awareness and educate people about the gluten-free diet, the folks at Celiac.com invite everyone to empower themselves and educate others by becoming a “Gluten-Buster.”

According to Scott Adams, founder of www.Celiac.com and www.GlutenFreeMall.com, a Gluten Buster is someone who has experienced far too much celiac disease and gluten-free diet ignorance—perhaps when dealing with their doctor, with a chef or wait person at a restaurant, or with a relative or acquaintance—and these negative encounters have snowballed and caused them to reach a breaking point…a point where they have decided to take action and do something about it—and now they can.

Anyone who has reached this point (or anyone who just wants to help out and do something positive) is invited to join our team and become a true superhero—someone who is dedicated to spreading knowledge and awareness about celiac disease and the gluten-free diet—become a Gluten Buster!

Definition:

Gluten Buster: [n] A superhero-like person who is dedicated to wearing clothing that is designed to spark up conversations with total strangers in the hope that, if need be, they can be educated—one by one—until celiac disease and gluten-free diet ignorance is totally wiped out and eradicated from the planet Earth!

For more information about celiac disease visit www.Celiac.com. Our celiac disease awareness shirts can be purchased at www.GlutenFreeMall.com.

GlutenFreeMall.com Examines Gluten and Toxins in Pet Foods: Are They Poisoning Your Pet

GlutenFreeMall.com examines recent news indicates that wheat gluten tainted with melamine, a chemical found in Asian fertilizers, and forbidden in American pet foods, has been implicated in the sickness of as many as 8,800 pets, including the deaths of up to 2,797 animals, mostly cats, and explores whether or not gluten should be in pet foods at all, and looks at its effects on humans and pets.

(PRWEB) April 12, 2007 -- GlutenFreeMall.com examines gluten and toxins in pet foods: are they poisoning your pet?

Tainted Wheat Gluten Suspected in Pet Deaths
Recent news indicates that wheat gluten tainted with melamine, a chemical found in Asian fertilizers, and forbidden in American pet foods, has been implicated in the sickness of as many as 8,800 pets, including the deaths of up to 2,797 animals, mostly cats.

bones, pieces of carcass, rotten greens and fruit, fish guts, discarded seeds and grains, animal guts and heads, some discarded human food and wastes
The Irish Setter is a breed known to suffer from gluten intolerance, but it is clear that gluten is affecting many other breeds of dogs and cats. And why wouldn't it? It is affecting humans and we have had millennia to adapt to eating wheat. Our pets have only been eating wheat-based pet foods for about 20 years now.
Wheat Gluten is Not Part of Your Pet's Natural Diet
These stories invite a deeper consideration about the role that non-tainted wheat gluten may play in chronic illness and degenerative diseases in our beloved cats and dogs.

The simple truth is that cats and dogs are, by nature, primarily meat eaters. Dogs are historically scavengers, whose natural diets, according to a recent study by biologists Ray and Lorna Coppinger, consisted of "bones, pieces of carcass, rotten greens and fruit, fish guts, discarded seeds and grains, animal guts and heads, some discarded human food and wastes". In the wild, a dog's diet included only the smallest amounts of grains, while cats are almost totally carnivorous, and subsist in the wild on a diet made up almost exclusively of small rodents. The natural diets of both cats and dogs provide large amounts of animal protein and fats, water and little in the way of carbohydrates.

Dogs and Cats Should Avoid Grains and Carbohydrates
Most veterinary textbooks agree that both cats and dogs need almost no carbohydrates, yet the so called "recommended" diet of dry pet foods, which is a major component of most pets' diets, contradicts both their natural diets and the veterinary literature. Many of these dry pet foods are high in carbohydrates, low in animal protein and fats, and contain almost no water -- this fact is largely ignored by major pet food producers

Many pet owners who feed canned, moist food to their cats and dogs do so believing that they are providing much-needed meat and moisture to their animals. This is largely true, but what is also true, as came to light in the recent spate of illnesses and deaths from tainted wet formula pet foods, is that wheat gluten is a significant ingredient in such foods.

The problem is that the digestive systems of dogs and cats have not evolved to digest plant proteins like gluten -- they are designed to digest animal protein, and gluten is not the same -- and feeding these animals foods that contain gluten can result in many of the same problems that afflict their human counterparts who are sensitive to gluten.

Toxic Effects of Wheat Gluten and Other Proteins in Pets -- and Humans
According to veterinarian John B. Symes ("Dogtor J"), gluten and other proteins that are added to dog and cat foods are causing many of the same diseases that they cause in their human counterparts. Dogs and cats that have suffered and died from consuming tainted pet food belie the fact that even untainted gluten can cause many of these same problems and more. In human celiacs and gluten-sensitive individuals, untainted gluten can induce both chronic and acute kidney failure. This form of kidney failure is typically called an IgA nephropathy, in which antibodies and immune complexes formed against gluten are deposited in the kidneys, which leads to damage and ultimately failure. Again, this can be chronic leading to persistent blood (microscopic) and protein in the urine or it can be acute.

Dr. Symes claims that it is a startling but well-established fact that the lectins of gluten (wheat, barley, rye) dairy products (e.g. casein, lactalbumin) soy, and corn are all capable of inducing serious health issues in those humans who are sensitive to them. He takes this belief even further and states that such foods are actually not healthy for anyone -- neither pets nor humans and they just happen to be more harmful to some individuals than others. According to him anyone who consumes or feeds these foods to their pets on a daily basis will encounter resulting health problems -- it is only of matter of time.

All one needs to do, according to Dr. Symes, is to study celiac disease to see how all of this works and appreciate the health implications that accompany this extremely common condition. That a similar condition does occur in dogs and cats has become painfully obvious during the past seven years that he has been studying the issue. Dr. Symes states: "The Irish Setter is a breed known to suffer from gluten intolerance, but it is clear that gluten is affecting many other breeds of dogs and cats. And why wouldn't it? It is affecting humans and we have had millennia to adapt to eating wheat. Our pets have only been eating wheat-based pet foods for about 20 years now."

The average American dog lives 12 years -- 13 for cats, when their wild counterparts, eating a natural diet, can live to be nearly 30 and 40 years respectively. For the cause, we need look no further than what we put in their bowls. A European study shows that pets fed with table scraps lived an average of three years longer than those fed commercial diets alone. Why? The answer, at least in part, is that highly processed foods cannot possibly contain all of the essential nutrients found in fresh meats, fruits and vegetables.

Dr. Symes' Top 10 Gluten-Free Foods for Pets--All are gluten-free and low carb:

1) IVD/Royal Canin - L.I.D.s
2) Nutro Natural Choice Lamb and Rice
3) NaturalLife Lambaderm
4) Canidae and Felidae - Dog and cat foods
5) Dick Van Patten Natural Balance Duck and Potato, Venison and Brown Rice, and Sweet Potato and Fish Formulas

THE GLUTEN-FREE MALL®, YOUR SPECIAL DIET SUPERSTORE!® UNDERWRITES PUBLIC RADIO DOCUMENTARY ON CELIAC DISEASE: "GUT REACTION."

Santa Rosa, California…The original "one-stop shop" on the Internet for wheat and gluten-free foods has underwritten a new Public Radio program called "Gut Reaction." The one-hour program was produced by Richard L. Paul of rlpaulproductions, LLC, many Public Radio stations across the USA have already aired it, including WAMU in Washington, DC, WILL-FM in Champaign/Urbana, IL, WBE in Chicago, IL, WCPN-FM in Cleveland, OH, seventeen stations on the Minnesota Public Radio Network, and it is scheduled to air on many more stations in the future--including next weekend on WFUV in New York City. Several stations who aired it got such an overwhelmingly positive listener response that they have decided to air it multiple times.

The touching documentary details the difficult real-life stories of several individuals who, after suffering for many years with severe, unexplained health problems, were finally diagnosed with celiac disease. Unfortunately their stories are not unique, and resemble many of those who have been affected by the disease. According to Scott Adams, Founder of The Gluten-Free Mall® and Celiac.com: "We underwrote Gut Reaction with the aim of getting the word out about celiac disease to millions of people across the USA, including to those who are unaware that they have it--a full 1-in-133 Americans have celiac disease, but only 1-in-4,700 are ever diagnosed--which is not an acceptable ratio. Hopefully this program will have a positive impact on those who hear it, and will ultimately lead to the diagnosis and treatment of many people. It is also our hope that the program will lead to a better understanding of the disease among those who don't have it, so that it will be easier for those with it to maintain its only acceptable medical treatment--a 100% gluten-free diet for life. "

Mr. Adams emphasizes that: "We believe that Public Radio is the perfect vehicle to deliver this important message about celiac disease to people across the USA, because its function is public service and education via quality, educational programming--and Gut Reaction is just that." He continues: "You can help us to get Gut Reaction aired in your community by going to:
http://www.celiac.com/articles/857/1/Help-Celiaccom-Get-Gut-Reaction-Public-Radio-Documentary-on-Celiac-Disease-Aired/Page1.html
and following the steps listed there to contact the programming director at your local Public Radio station." He explained that Public Radio programming is decided on a station by station basis, and each station's program director decides which shows get aired on their station--so each person who contacts them can have a huge influence on which programs get chosen.

Since 1998 The Gluten-Free Mall®, Your Special Diet Superstore® has provided online shopping for wheat and gluten-free foods for those on special diets due to celiac disease, wheat allergy or other health reasons, via their Internet site: www.glutenfreemall.com.
