Amazon is now a proud sponsor of Celiac Disease Foundation (CDF), a national nonprofit organization dedicated to driving diagnosis and treatment of celiac disease through advocacy, education, and advancing research to improve the quality of life for all people affected by gluten-related disorders.
Celiac disease, a genetic autoimmune disorder in which the ingestion of gluten leads to damage in the small intestine, affects 1 in 100 people worldwide, and often goes undiagnosed. It is estimated that 83% of Americans with the disease are unaware that they have it. By sponsoring CDF, Amazon will help make gluten-free living easier and tastier with its gluten-free storefront, where you can find a wide variety of gluten-free foods, baking supplies, snacks, candy, and more.
“It is with great pleasure that we welcome Amazon’s sponsorship of CDF,” says Marilyn G. Geller, Chief Executive Officer of Celiac Disease Foundation. “This new relationship with Amazon will have a significant impact on celiac disease and gluten sensitivity awareness, and provide critical expansion of our community outreach. We look forward to all that we can accomplish together and to furthering our mission with Amazon’s support.”
Amazon.com is a proud sponsor of the Celiac Disease Foundation and has a gluten-free store where you can find a wide range of gluten-free breakfast foods, baking supplies, pasta, snacks, candy, and more. Amazon is committed to offering Earth’s widest selection, including selection for customers who live gluten-free.
