You are not alone! More than one in five Americans claim to be following a gluten free diet because for many, eating gluten can cause serious health issues. If you’re following a gluten free diet, you’ve definitely come to the right place! Not only are ALL Maplegrove products created under the strictest possible GF manufacturing standards, but we also respect your desire for foods that prove once and for all that gluten free and taste free need no longer be synonymous.
It is an autoimmune disorder that can cause damage in the small intestine as a result of gluten consumption (gluten is the group of proteins found in wheat, barley, rye and elsewhere, including such foods as pasta, pizza, cakes and cookies). Affecting some 1 in 100 people worldwide, with some 2.5 million Americans believed to still be undiagnosed and therefore at risk, celiac disease requires a strict lifelong adherence to a gluten free diet. Continuing to eat gluten when you have celiac causesa myriad of problems, from intestinal atrophy, malnutrition, and increased mortality to heightened risk for certain cancers and other complications.
Maplegrove maintains exceptional levels of vigilance to ensure a completely gluten free production environment. Unlike other brands in the space that risk cross-contamination by making GF and non-GF products in the same facility, we ONLY produce gluten free products and follow standards set by the United States FDA and the Canadian Food Inspection Agency.
There was a time when having Celiac Disease meant saying goodbye to many of the foods and flavors you grew up with. Well, how’s this for great news? Those days are gone! Thanks to Maplegrove Foods you may not only forget you’re following a restricted diet – but now you can have a meal the whole family can enjoy.
