Apps for Gluten Free Living
I use many of these apps on a daily basis!
Celiac Disease Diet Tips – Available for Android
Want to learn more about Celiac Disease or how to lose weight? This app is a great go-to to learn about Celiac Disease, gluten sensitivity, especially when sharing information with your friends and family. It also provides tips and guides on how to diet and make healthy choices with Celiac Disease.
Locate the restaurants around you that offer gluten-free options. This is great when you are traveling and need to find lunch quickly for you or your family who are naturally dying of starvation. The app only lists restaurants that offer gluten-free options and you can see which restaurants have been voted Celiac friendly by reviewers.
Scan products while you are shopping to find out whether they are considered safe. There are so many unlabeled gluten-free products. The database includes over 500,000+ products!
