May is Celiac Awareness Month and I am pleased to be collaborating with the Canadian Celiac Association to produce podcasts to support their theme of “Beyond the Gut”.
The CCA hosted a conference on The State of Celiac bringing together researchers, doctors, dietitians, food producers, influencers and others who had a stake in the future of celiac disease and the gluten free diet. I was fortunate to attend this event and was able to have short interviews with some of the speakers and attendees. During this last week of Celiac Awareness Month, the podcast will consist of five interviews each highlighting one of the speakers and topics that I found of interest.
This episode I talk with Jerry Bigam, President and CEO of Kinnikinnick Food Inc., located in Edmonton, Alberta. Jerry has seen numerous changes in the gluten free food industry during his many years in the business. We chat about the changes that Jerry sees happening now and the trends he has identified that we, as gluten free consumers should be aware of. As informed consumers, there is action we can take to keep our favourite foods on store shelves.
