    Alice Bast from NFCA on Domino's GF Pizza- Gluten-Free Voice

    in Health

    Gluten-free expert, author, coach and advocate Jules Shepard hosts a weekly show offering news, interviews with intriguing guests, gluten-free baking tips and otherwise lively conversation.
    The announcement this week, that Domino's Pizza has released a new gluten-free pizza, has grabbed everyone's attention. The fact that this pizza is not designed for those with celiac disease or "severe" gluten sensitivity though, has upset many in the gluten-free community.
    Domino's worked with the National Foundation for Celiac Awareness (NFCA) to devise a gluten-free crust and to train its employees on giving their disclaimer, in efforts to educate consumers on whether this pizza will be a safe choice for them. The NFCA's "Amber Designation" was given to Domino's, symbolizing "the restaurant is using gluten-free ingredients and has completed staff training to understand the health needs of those with gluten-related disorders. However, these restaurants cannot guarantee an environment free of cross-contamination"
    In this special hour-long episode, Ms. Bast will take a limited number of questions on this issue, and will explain the NFCA's "GREAT" program, as well as how Domino's fits in.
    To post a question for Ms. Bast, go to Jules Gluten Free Flour Facebook Page and post the question. To call in, leave Jules a private message on that Facebook Page with your question and your phone number in advance, so Jules can expect your call and recognize your number when you call in.

    in Food

    Twenty-four-year-old Westport, Connecticut native Parker Kligerman comes from humble beginnings at the local kart tracks of Connecticut, but Kligerman has achieved remarkable results, and has become one of racing’s most promising young talents.


    Kligerman's talent helped him climb the NASCAR ladder, running both the Camping World Truck Series and Nationwide Series, leading him to earn a spot in the top tier, the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series.


    The Gluten Free Car


    When Parker was diagnosed with Celiac Disease in 2010, his life changed for the better. Until that point, he was living in a fog and constantly feeling sick. A fellow racecar driver recommended that he get tested for Celiac, which ultimately allowed Parker to get back to his energetic and healthy lifestyle. Now, Parker has made it his mission to spread the word about Celiac Disease and to show people that a gluten-free lifestyle can include delicious food choices and a variety of options at their favorite restaurants.


    The mission of his Gluten-Free campaign:


    * Spread awareness about Celiac Disease and how to get tested.


    * Promote options for Celiacs and those who are living a gluten-free lifestyle.


    Join Jules and Parker as they discuss overcoming celiac disease and spreading awareness of the benefits of a gluten free lifestyle, on and off the track.
