On June 19, Dowd and Rogers Inc., the American manufacturer of wheat-free and gluten-free products, announced the launch of its Gourmet Flour Blend line of cake mixes. Addressing the needs of individuals intolerant of gluten and those allergic to wheat, the mixes contain a gourmet blend of fine white rice flour, Italian chestnut flour, and tapioca flour. According to a new study by the University of Maryland Center for Celiac Research, nearly one out of every 150 Americans suffers from celiac disease. Individuals with celiac disease are unable to eat foods that contain gluten, a protein found in wheat, barley, rye, and oats. Research also indicates that celiac disease is twice as common as Crohn's disease, ulceric colitis, and cystic fibrosis combined. Source: Dowd and Rogers, Inc.
