Huckleberries Online

Gluten-free anyone?

There's a new acronym out there and its usage is growing daily in popularity.

“No pie for me, thank you.”

“You must be GF.”

“How'd you guess?”

GF, to the uninitiated, stands for Gluten Free. And nowadays you may see those words everywhere from supermarket shelves to health food stores.

Gluten, according to the Mayo Clinic and the National Institutes of Health (NIH), is a protein found in grains like wheat, barley and rye. George Kingson, Cda Press

Can't tell you how many friends and family members are going gluten-free— none of them with celiac disease by the way. Would you try a gluten-free diet?
