In a recent interview with The New York Times, Gwyneth Paltrow, actress and CEO of lifestyle brand Goop, said that her 2015 cookbook helped inspire the popularity of the gluten-free diet. According to Paltrow, “when I did my gluten-free cookbook in 2015, the press was super negative and there were personal attacks about what I was feeding my children and what kind of mother I am. Now the gluten-free market is huge.”

Gluten is a family of proteins found in certain grains, including wheat, rye and barley. A strict gluten-free diet is the only treatment for celiac disease, an autoimmune condition that affects 1 percent of the population in the United States, or at least 3 million people. On the market since 1995, Gluten-Free Living provides readers who have celiac, wheat allergy and gluten intolerance with trusted and reliable information about the gluten-free diet and lifestyle.
