It’s time again to chat with Ellen Bayens of Ellen brings us great articles and tidbits about celiac disease and the gluten free diet all month long and this is our opportunity to discuss.  First, we talk about an article that tries to define the differences between food allergies, intolerances and sensitivities – it’s a big and somewhat confusing job. Easiest to note that Celiac is none of the above, but many of us have an allergy, intolerance or sensitivity in addition to celiac.

Have you ever wondered what xanthan gum is exactly?  I had not, until Ellen raised the topic. You might be surprised at what you learn.  Recently, Health Canada re-vamped their sign up for food and other recalls. Ellen gives us a summary of the changes and how the new process is so much easier.

Ellen highlights the Tuesday questions answered by Selena DeVries RD on Instagram. Her website is Healthbean Nutrition and you can find her Instagram @celiac_dietitian.

We talk about what makes the Honeycomb app unique.  This is of special interest to those who have additional food allergies, or those who want to know exactly what to order at a particular restaurant to be safe.

I have a great story for Ellen that follows up from a discussion we had about a foreign celiac student staying with a family in Victoria.

May is Celiac Awareness Month. So, Stay tuned.
