September 2015 Meeting Summary

The Prescott Area Celiac and Gluten Free Support group held its' September 2015 meeting at Prescott Valley Public Library on Tuesday, September 8th from 12-2PM. It was a terrific, well-attended meeting. Several members were able to share the businesses they own/work at or volunteer for. 

The support group includes Linda, Interior Designer; Suzanne, Bowenwork Representative; Kathy, Home Inspection Business Owner; Sharon, Home Health Care; and Janet, Volunteer with United Animal Friends. It was fun learning about all the talent in the group and to spend a few moments not just talking about "gluten"!

During September's meeting, time was spent continuing to discuss the new GF Cheerios Cereal issues.  Warning: Consume at your own discretion and risk, due to possible cross contamination at the factories.

Many of the group's members have enjoyed a new grocery product available in the area called "Just Mayo".  No dairy, no eggs, no soy, gluten free, etc.  It is a terrific product that has a very reasonable price point and can be found now at Whole Foods in Prescott. However, a recent newspaper article revealed that they are been attacked, harassed and threatened by The American Egg Board, because they have a delicious egg-less mayonnaise at a great price! Renee R. has been in contact with Hampton Creek, the makers of this mayo.  Find more info at Anyone that cannot eat eggs or dairy can purchase this delicious mayonnaise at Whole Foods. Please check out a petition that was initiated by a mom, Jessica, who heard about the attack on Hampton Creek and decided to take action.

The organization's next meeting will be on Tuesday, October 13th, 2015 from noon until 2p at the Prescott Valley Public Library.  See you then!
