Israeli Celiac Group Stands Up for Gluten Free Israelis

The Israeli Celiac Association notified the Ministry of Health that some foreign products on Israeli supermarket shelves that were labeled "gluten free" actually contained gluten. The products, specifically prepackaged instant couscous from Morocco and wheat semolina products were removed and replaced. The Israeli Celiac Association advocates for those allergic to gluten, a type of protein in bread products. They also offer restaurant guides and tips for celiac travelers to Israel.
