Res Has Low-Gluten Hosts!

Yes, Resurrection Parish offers the low-gluten hosts approved by the US Conference of Catholic Bishops, and made by the Benedictine Sisters in Clyde, Missouri!  Here is their website for more information: http://altarbreadsbspa.com

The low-gluten hosts contain less than 0.01% of gluten which is safe for most celiac people according to Dr. Alessio Fasano of the University of Maryland. This is far below both the FDA and Celiac Support Association thresholds. The ingredients are wheat starch, water and lots of prayer.

Maintaining a healthy gluten-free diet is very important to controlling celiac disease and wheat allergy. Remember even  0.01% of gluten can be critical for someone with a true wheat allergy. Patients should consult with their physicians.

If you come to Mass at Resurrection and would like a low-gluten host, let an usher know.
