Gluten-Free Baking | Diabetes Forecast Magazine

Gluten-Free Baking | Diabetes Forecast Magazine | diabetes and more | Scoop.it

“Bakery is chemistry—gluten-free baking is really a science,” says gluten-intolerant baker and blogger Rella Kaplowitz of pennypinchingepicure.com.

Kaplowitz began experimenting with gluten-free cooking to deal with frequent stomachaches. She went back on gluten for a few months so that she could be tested for celiac disease. Although that test came up negative, she’s adopted gluten-free eating to deal with her gluten intolerance.

Kaplowitz’s first few forays into baking without gluten yielded some disappointing results. The muffins were “so hard and dense, they went right into the garbage,” she says. Undaunted, Kaplowitz put on her lab apron and started to experiment.

Beyond the Ice Bucket: The Real Challenge for Diabetes Advocacy

Beyond the Ice Bucket: The Real Challenge for Diabetes Advocacy | diabetes and more | Scoop.it
In the diabetes world, I saw numerous commentators extolling the need for a parallel ice bucket challenge to raise money for diabetes research. This made me wonder why the idea of "making a difference" is almost universally equated with fundraising for research to the exclusion of all other needs in the global diabetes community.
