FEATURED ITEMS
DLM Old-Fashioned Bartlett Pears
Our sweet jarred Bartlett pears are an easy treat. Enjoy them with ice cream, pound cake, or alone for a simple dessert. They are locally produced for us in Holmes County, Ohio. These pears are not your typical soggy “canned fruit”. They have that snap normally only found in home canned foods.
 
Melt Away Pounds with Sauerkraut
Many people don't eat sauerkraut very often, but it's surprisingly healthy and versatile. It's low in saturated fat and very low in cholesterol. It's also a good source of calcium and magnesium, and a very good source of fiber, vitamin C, vitamin K, vitamin B6, folate, iron, potassium, and copper. It can serve as a pizza topping, a low-calorie side dish, or part of a salad or soup. Pair it with du Breton Natural Pork or DLM Pork Sausage for a traditional New Year’s celebration. Bulk Barrel-Cured Sauerkraut 99¢ lb • save 30¢ lb with Club DLM card through Tuesday, January 1.
 
Sartori Asiago with Basil and Olive Oil
This Asiago is hand rubbed with extra-virgin olive oil and encrusted with basil, which is a symbol of love in present-day Italy. This award-winning cheese's slow maturation of at least six months creates a slightly sharp flavor and makes it great for snacking!

Common Nutritional Deficiencies in People with Celiac Disease.

KEY POINTS:

• Nutrient deficiencies are caused by vitamins and minerals in the intestine that do not get absorbed. They can also come from a diet low in vitamins and minerals.



• In newly diagnosed or untreated celiac disease, damage to the small intestine can lead to poor absorption of vitamins and minerals. Diarrhea, which is often seen with celiac disease, can also add to this problem.



• A person with celiac disease must avoid foods containing wheat, rye, and barley. These foods are high in B vitamins, iron, and other minerals. He/she may also need to avoid dairy products (high in calcium and vitamin D) due to lactose intolerance. Avoiding these foods can lead to many low vitamin and mineral levels.



• Common deficiencies in newly diagnosed and untreated celiac disease are iron, B12, calcium, vitamin D, zinc, and copper. This depends on how severe the disease is and the person's diet.



• Low vitamin and mineral levels can cause health problems, such as feeling tired and poor bone health.



• Carefully following a balanced gluten-free diet can fix low vitamin and mineral levels. It can also restore good health. Most of the time, gluten-free vitamin and mineral supplements are needed. Note the site states can restore good health, NOT will restore. This can be an ongoing issue for people who are carefully following the G/F diet as well. Your doctor can order tests to help you monitor these levels.



Speak to your doctor or dietitian about your nutrient and supplement needs.
