Celiac Disease: ZeroCarb LYFE Can Help
by ZeroCarb LYFE on May 04, 2023
Did you know celiac disease is hereditary? People that have a parent or sibling that has been diagnosed with celiac disease run a 1 in 10 risk of also developing it.
Approximately one out of 100 individuals are diagnosed with celiac disease. When those who have been diagnosed consume gluten, it causes an immune response which results in their body attacking its own small intestine. Unfortunately, this can affect the way their body absorbs nutrients.
“It is estimated that up to 83% of Americans who have celiac disease are undiagnosed or misdiagnosed with other conditions.” - Beyond Celiac
Gluten is most commonly found in ingredients such as wheat, rye, and barley, making it challenging for those living with celiac to find delicious gluten-free foods. The good news is… not anymore!

Our ZeroCarb LYFE frozen chicken crusts provide those with celiac - and everyone - the opportunity to be creative in the kitchen without compromising their diet.
