Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Gluten is what that gives elasticity to dough, and it is found in all sorts of everyday foods. Sensitivity to it causes some people a host of issues including bloating, migraines, fatigue, joint pain, and more. Others suffering from celiac disease or dermatitis herpetiformis must cut gluten from their diets in order to avoid becoming very ill. Unfortunately, trying to eliminate the substance entirely is a difficult and often overwhelming. This new guide will go a long way to helping people navigate both grocery shopping and eating out. The concise introduction explains what is gluten is, discusses common misconceptions, and includes lists of gluten-free and gluten-containing foods. The bulk of the book is dedicated to a listing of foods divided into categories, such as fats and oils, vegetables, fruits, dairy, etc., as well as a section on restaurants. Each section begins with an overview of the food type as well as shopping tips, standard portions, and any relevant word of caution such as chances for the food type to be cross-contaminated with gluten. Verdict Anyone attempting to live gluten free will find this a comprehensive, highly usable, and portable resource. People will need to remember, however, the books isn't meant as medical advice, and the information on the foods covered is provided by the companies and restaurants mentioned, not by any lab analysis of the food itself. Further, there are no government rules for gluten-free labeling of foods.—Lisa Ennis, Univ. of Alabama at Birmingham
