OMG…It’s Gluten Free! Frankfort, IL

OMG…It’s Gluten Free! is a 100% gluten free bakery & café, serving the Chicago and area with a large assortment of delicious gluten free foods.Wheat was only developed 10,000 years ago. Before that, people ate lean meat, fish and vegetables. When wheat came on the scene, it was completely foreign. Human bodies have to adapt in order to tolerate it and a lot of people don’t tolerate it well at all.Current research suggests that as many as 1 in 100 people have celiac disease (CD) which is equal to 1% of all Americans or 3 million people, 97% of whom are undiagnosed. 1 in 22 people are estimated to have it if a parent, child or sibling has it. The average child visits 8 doctors before receiving a correct diagnosis.

It takes an average of 11 years to be diagnosed with celiac disease in the United States. 60% of children and 41% of adults diagnosed with celiac disease showed NO symptoms during the five years they were tracked for a multicenter study of celiac disease.

Wheat free doesn’t mean gluten free!

* Depression
