Celiac disease, also known as gluten intolerance, is one of the most prevalent genetic conditions on earth. Symptoms vary and include high blood pressure, anemia and fatigue. One in 150 Americans suffer from celiac disease, making it a national health issue. This prevalence of gluten intolerance has bolstered a gluten-free movement in the food world. From pasta to pizza, gluten-free options abound.
At 2 Degrees, we receive a lot of positive feedback about our gluten-free commitment: all 2 Degrees bars are gluten-free (and vegan).
