O Canada!

July 1 is Canada Day

Just thought I'd offer a round-up of various items related to our neighbors north of the border....
  • At this week's Fancy Food Show in New York City, I enjoyed the gluten-free (and egg-free) butter crunch (sample at right) from Toronto's CocoMira.

  • Quebec microbrewery Les bières de la Nouvelle-France now advertises two gluten-free beers: Messagère pale ale and the new Messagère Red Ale. Judging from the website, it looks like the brewers expect distribution in the United States soon!

  • Thanks to Saskatchewan dietitian Shelley Case, I'd like to draw your attention to Health Canada's Celiac Disease: The Gluten Connection, a clear, concise, and recently produced overview of celiac disease. (For the inevitable United States comparison, click here to see materials produced as part of the Celiac Disease Awareness Campaign of the National Digestive Diseases Information Clearinghouse of the National Institutes of Health (NIH).)

  • Here's Health Canada's Celiac Awareness Month 2009 statement (May 4) from Canadian Minister of Health Leona Aglukkaq.

  • And here's a videotaped May 4, 2009 statement by Ontario politician Yasir Naqvi.
