Chronic Diseases

In May, we observe Celiac Disease Awareness Month

One in 133 Americans (about 1% of the population) has celiac disease—It's a chronic digestive system disease that damages the small intestine. It's a protein found in bread, pasta, and cookies. Also, it's a protein found in foods such as lipsticks, toothpaste, vitamins, and nutritional supplements.

Symptoms of celiac disease include tiredness and abdominal pain, and if you don´t treat the disease, it can become serious because it does not allow the body to take in the nutrients it needs.

We offer the followingrecommendations to use during storage, preparation, cooking and serving:

Store foods in closed containers, identify them and separate them from those containing gluten.

Use exclusive oil, broth, or cooking water to make gluten-free preparations.

Use only utensils and containers for spreadable foods (cheese, butter, jams, etc.)

Store them on the top shelves of cupboards, refrigerators, and freezers.
Clean and disinfect surfaces (counters, tables) before preparing them
Please wash your hands with soap and water before handling them

To prepare only gluten-free dishes, allocate difficult-to-clean utensils.

Use exclusive oil, broth, or cooking water to make gluten-free preparations.

Cover food while cooking or heating.

Check that the utensils and dishes you use are clean
