Sweetly Offbeat A Gluten Free Bakery

It’s been more than 15 years since Jane Mitchell, owner of Sweetly Offbeat, discovered she has celiac disease. Celiac disease is an auto immune disease in which people can't eat gluten because it will damage their small intestine. If you have celiac disease and eat foods with gluten, your immune system responds by damaging the small intestine. Gluten is a protein found in wheat, rye, and barley. It may also be in other products like vitamins and supplements, hair and skin products, toothpastes, and lip balm. It’s extremely difficult to diagnose as each person with the disease may experience different symptoms but the bottom line is, it doesn’t make you feel very good every time you eat something with Gluten in it.
