Welcome Sans Gluten members, new and old, to a new year! To kick off the year and give members insight on our gluten-free club at JWU, we all got together to meet this year’s officers and committee chairs, reiterate the club’s definiti

on, brainstorm ideas for our future lab meetings, and try out a goody-bag full of gluten free products.

We allowed this meeting to not only be about the club, but the students as well. We gave them a chance to speak about their allergies and what foods they missed the most as a result. Then, we took note of the following foods that we aim to make during our meetings through out the year:

Chocolate Cake
Pie Crusts
Bagels
Cronuts – doughnut-croissants
Pancakes/Waffles
Tortillas
Cannolis
Fettuccini Alfredo
Granola Bars
“on the go” snacks
Fried foods – breading – chicken fingers, onion rings, etc.
Gravy – Thanksgiving themed day with stuffing etc.
Candy theme for October
Pretzels

At the end of the meeting, we concluded that 18 out of the 22 students in attendance has Celiac Disease or Gluten-Intolerance. Numbers like these make us eager to begin our lab meetings, where we will make our members feel comfortable and hopeful while we experiment with gluten-free flour blends to create homemade products that will put smiles across the faces of every club member.

Thank you to all in attendance. Let it be said that the Sans Gluten Club of the 2013-2014 school year has officially began!
