Grocery tour today focuses on gluten-free diets

Trinity Health’s Nutrition Services Department will offer another in a series of grocery store tours today at 6 p.m. at MarketPlace Foods, located at South Broadway and 20th Avenue.

The theme of this month’s tour is “Celiac Disease and Gluten Intolerance.”

Living a gluten-free life takes some adjustment. A registered dietician from Trinity Health will lead the tour and offer guidance on the importance of reading food labels to identify which foods are likely to contain hidden gluten.

Participants are instructed to meet at the east entrance of MarketPlace Foods, near the deli. Each tour lasts about an hour. Nutrition Services is offering a grocery tour each month during 2013.
