Gluten-Free Medications
It came to my mind today that some of you may not be aware of the great resource glutenfreedrugs.com.

Gluten-Free Grain Nutrition Facts Periodically I like looking over the nutritional information of various grains. It reminds me that variety is always a good thing, and sometimes it encourages me to try something new. I included wheat (which is not gluten-free) for comparison sake. This is a basic chart which does not include vitamin facts. More comprehensive information can be found from a PDF file, New Horizons for Whole Grains and the Gluten-Free Diet, by Carol Fenster and Shelley Case. At Nutrition Analyser you can click on an individual grain and get a long list of nutritional information. What are your favorite gluten-free grains?
