About Us

Gluten Free Vancouver is an online resource for anyone living a gluten free lifestyle because of celiac disease, gluten intolerance, or as a dietary choice. 

Who are we? We are two sisters who were diagnosed with celiac disease in 2005. At that time we struggled with understanding this condition, and how to manage our daily lives while trying to make the switch to a 100% gluten free diet. It was really difficult at first, and there were very few resources which could help us make the transition safely and easily. We started Gluten Free Vancouver in 2009 because we are passionate about celiac disease education and awareness, and helping others like us.

Our reviews of restaurants, local gluten free bakers, and retailers come from our first hand experiences, and we enquire about safe food handling practices and information on other allergens such as dairy, eggs, soy, and nuts as much as possible. In several cases we have provided input into gluten free best practices in commercial kitchens, as well as menu creation and product recommendations to local businesses looking to develop their gluten free menus.
 
Our social media pages, which include facebook, twitter, instagram, and pinterest, receive a lot of interaction among local and international readers looking to share gluten free experiences and resources, and learn about new ones. Follow us as we navigate our gluten free lifestyles in Vancouver and abroad!
