Celiac Month '16
It’s estimated that 18 million Americans are sensitive to gluten, which is the general name for a protein found in wheat, rye, barley and triticale. These grains are found in thousands of different foods making it a challenge for many to follow a gluten-free diet – and enjoy it! Most people don’t realize that Idaho® potatoes are naturally gluten-free. And, with their versatility and impressive nutritional profile, Idaho® potatoes are the perfect addition to any meal – breakfast, lunch, dinner or snack. The Idaho Potato Commission has continuously been adding delicious gluten-free recipes to its website, including three new ones this month. For a quick and easy appetizer try Idaho® Potato and White Bean Skordalia. Sliced carrots, celery stalks and broccoli florets are great scoopers and add even more nutrition. Idaho Potato South African Curried Meatloaf will be a slam-dunk family favorite, and Russian Beet and Idaho Potato Salad adds a splash of color and flavor to any lunch or supper. Try them all during National Celiac Month…and all year long.
