According to the National Foundation for Celiac Awareness approximately 1 in every 133 Americans suffers from an autoimmune disorder called celiac disease. This number is based upon a milestone multi-center study of blood samples collected from 13,145 people from February 1996 to May of 2001. This means that there were over 2.1 million undiagnosed people with celiac disease in the United States in 2001.

Celiac is the most extreme form of gluten intolerance. You can be allergic to gluten without having the disease. Gluten is a protein found in wheat, barley, rye, spelt, kamut, and oats.
