Recipe swaps, Latest Pharmaceutical Testing, Cookie Winner
Post a recipe, share a recipe, borrow a recipe – yes even gluten-free recipes – it’s all happening on the mainstream food site belonging to Land O’ Lakes.
The company website has an area called Simple Rewards Club, where the cooks in your family can go on line and share their recipes with others as well as borrow others’ family favorites. Or the thing that’s new is the specialty kitchen feature – one is specifically for gluten-free cooks.
By either goingto the gluten-free kitchen or by just doing a simple search of gluten-free you will find more than 50 gluten-free recipes with simple-enough ingredients to make at home! Impressive – the Food Network site only had five when I checked last month. I found a corn bread recipe and a pancake recipe I would like to try. You may want to check it out, it could be something you’ll like.
Testing for celiac pharmaceutical treatment
Alvine Pharmaceuticals is now enrolling more people to be part of yet another phase of testing on the company’s treatment for celiac disease: a pill that essentially digests gluten. This phase will look more specifically at at its efficacy. “This study is designed to assess the ability of ALV003 to prevent gluten-induced mucosal injury caused by the gluten that could contaminate an attempted gluten-free diet, by evaluating changes in intestinal histology, serology and symptoms,” reported the news release that came out Tuesday. The way I read this quote – basically it appears to be studying whether it can prevent damage to your gut from cross contamination.
I’m sure we’ll be hearing more about this in the months to come.
