Gluten Free Eating Series

Gluten Free Eating Curriculum consists of three, one hour lessons. Each of the three lessons covers different aspects of gluten free eating and includes activities and recipe suggestions for tastings or food demonstrations. Each lesson includes handouts for participants to use as a reference and hands-on activities. A three week series will be held at OSU Extension Learning Center on February 7, 14 and 20, 2018 from 6:00-7:00pm. The cost for the three week series is $10.00.

About twenty percent of the U.S. population is looking to reduce or eliminate gluten from their diet. For people who make the decision to eat gluten free as a matter of dietary choice and not a medical necessity, there are many important considerations. As a result of the program, participants will gain insight into the considerations involved in gluten free eating. Participants will increase their knowledge about gluten free shopping, dining, cooking and baking.

The program was developed so that participants will increase knowledge of:

  • Foods that contain gluten
  • Potential sources of hidden gluten
  • Potential sources of cross contact
  • Precautions to take when dining out
  • How gluten free flours work differently than wheat flour
  • How to read food labels for gluten ingredients
  • How to adapt recipes to make them gluten free

To register or for further information, please call OSU Extension at 937-548-5215 or email Diane Barga at Registration needs to be completed by February 2, 2018.
