Bill Clinton "Gets" the Gluten-Free Boom

Former president Bill Clinton, husband of New York Senator Hillary Clinton, noted this weekend that Rwandan cassava flour "has 'enormous potential' as an export to Western nations since it is gluten-free," according to this item from Good Morning America.

I wouldn't want to argue with that, as I'm a big fan of gluten-free high-fiber crackers made from cassava—and they've been pretty scarce around here lately. I miss them!

The Clinton Foundation helps Rwandan farmers grow cassava.
So, in case you had any doubts, you can certainly count Bill Clinton along with Nita Lowey and Kemp Hannon as area politicians who are gluten-conscious.
