San Diego, CA (PRWEB) May 15, 2013
As companies and associations gear up to raise awareness of celiac disease this month, Earth Source Organics recognizes the impact of this autoimmune digestive disorder year-round. For an individual who lives with celiac disease, the body attacks itself when ingesting any foods containing gluten, a protein found in wheat, barley, and rye. According to the National Foundation for Celiac Awareness, 1 in every 141 Americans has celiac disease. Even more alarming, 83% of sufferers are either undiagnosed or misdiagnosed.
During Celiac Disease Awareness Month, efforts are made to help those with the disease manage their dietary restrictions while urging food companies to maintain honesty and transparency in their product ingredients. Earth Source Organics understands the importance of this stating, “The repercussion of harming someone who may eat our products is tremendous. As a dedicated allergen and gluten-free facility, we stand by our word - we are not only righteous in our chocolate, but in everything we do.”
A person with celiac disease must carefully monitor all that they eat in order to avoid ingesting ingredients harmful to their digestive systems. While awareness of this disease and gluten-free dietary alternatives are on the rise, many companies still manufacture their products in facilities where gluten is present and where there is a risk of cross contamination. As a manufacturer of gluten-free raw chocolate products as well as a co-manufacturer of other celiac friendly product lines, Earth Source Organics adheres to strict guidelines in their dedicated certified gluten-free facility.
Although living with celiac disease may entail a daily clash with product labels, it doesn’t need to mean a reduction in the quality of food and life. Earth Source Organics is part of a movement that strives to offer gluten-free foods that provide numerous health benefits and taste delicious. Their chocolate line Righteously Raw gives those looking to lead healthy lifestyles premium products made with pure ingredients and low-glycemic, all-organic sweeteners.
