This Gluten Free Event is Coming to Oakville

 

Eating gluten-free, or reducing your gluten intake, has become increasingly popular over the past couple of years. 

While some people choose to eat gluten-free, others do not have a choice. 

In fact, according to Organic Garage in Oakville, it is estimated that one 133 people in Canada are affected by celiac disease - a disease where, according to celiac.ca, the absorptive surface of the small intestine is damaged by gluten.

Gluten is often found in wheat, barley, oats, and rye.

If you’re someone who suffers from celiac disease, or are just someone who wants to learn more about eating gluten-free, you may be excited to learn that a gluten-free event is coming to Halton, more specifically, Oakville.

On Saturday, May 25 and Sunday, May 26 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., Organic Garage (579 Kerr St.) in Oakville is hosting a gluten-free event.

At this event, attendees can sample gluten-free products sold at Organic Garage, ask questions, and meet representatives from some of the brands that the store carries.

The event is also being held at three other locations, these locations can be seen below.
