Information on gluten-free offered in Morris

“Gluten-free” is one of the newest label crazes, but why has it become so popular? While some consumers see gluten-free as a weight-loss diet, about 1 percent of the U.S. population suffers from celiac disease and risks serious health problems by consuming even a breadcrumb worth of gluten, according to a news release from the University of Illinois Extension office.

Learn about celiac and other gluten sensitivities, the surprising sources of gluten in foods and tips for living a gluten-free lifestyle.

The University of Illinois Extension Grundy County office will be offering this program from 1 to 2:30 p.m. Friday. It will be at the U of I Extension Office (Farm Bureau Building), 4004 N. Division St. in Morris.

Drusilla Banks, nutrition and wellness educator, will be the presenter and share important information on the topic. Tips on shopping, cooking and eating gluten-free will be discussed, and handouts will be provided, according to the news release.

To register or for information, contact the Grundy County Extension office at 815-942-2725. Registration is needed by Thursday.

This lesson is free to HCE members and costs $5 per person for non-HCE members. If you need a reasonable accommodation to attend this lesson, please let us know at the time you register.
