There are approximately 300 potential symptoms associated with gluten intolerance. Do to this staggering amount many people have gut issues when eating foods containing gluten even thought they don’t have celiac disease. This is sometimes called non-celiac gluten sensitivity, gluten intolerance or gluten allergy. People who have celiac disease vary widely in their symptoms. Some have uncomfortable stomach problems, some don’t have any digestive issues at all. Where others, only show fatigue or skin problems while many of them have no symptoms whatsoever. The only treatment for both celiac disease and non-celiac gluten sensitivity is a gluten free diet. Switching to a gluten-free diet is a big change, and like anything new, it takes some getting used to. Here is the story of how one family dealt with celiac disease hands on, literally.

“In 2001 our daughter Morgan was born, happy, healthy, thriving, and we were elated – delighting as every parent does in every smile, coo, and new skill.  By the time Morgan was two, she was extremely thin (despite the massive amounts of food she ate) with chronic dark circles under her eyes, complaints of bellyaches, and night sweats almost every night.  Little did we know that simply removing gluten from her diet would resolve her symptoms and cause her little 20-pound body to gain 8 pounds in only 8 weeks!

In the meantime (before Morgan was diagnosed) we had our second daughter, Sydney.  Sydney suffered from chronic diarrhea and a belly that was so rounded we thought it would surely pop if she bumped into something too hard. Once we discovered celiac disease, the symptoms miraculously disappeared. 

And so our journey began…

I went to work in the kitchen, spending countless hours trying to prepare baked goods that I could serve with confidence to our non-celiac friends and family.  As a result, Gluten Free Sensations is born.  It is the culmination of endless hours of research, time, laughter and tears. 

Gluten Free Sensations is a small company founded on old-fashioned principles, values and integrity.  I often say I am a handshake kind of girl in a contractual world.  We are determined to “do the right thing even when no one is looking”.  That means producing a high quality product with transparency and standing behind our product guarantee.  If you don’t love it, it’s on us!

Not only do our products have to taste AMAZING, they have to pass the “clean” test as well.  No fillers, no artificial flavors or colors, no GMO’s, no trans fats, no artificial anything!  I like to say we leverage the ingredients that nature gives us.  If I won’t feed it to my kids, I would not expect you to feed it to yours.
