Shelley Case knows GF. She lives GF. She is internationally known for her GF expertise and most of all she communicates with the people who are down in the trenches eating a GF diet to find out what is best and what they recommend. This has only increased the validity and popularity of her internatonal best seller Gluten-Free Deit: A Comprehensive Resource Guide. She coveres everything in her book - from getting onto the diet, some balanced recipes, where to shop in North America, grains and how they work in your body, how best to maintain a GF diet that is nutritional - I could go on. I have purchased every edition of her book - her current edition is 2008 and it is currently so under [...] in both Canadian and US dollars. She even has a fund raising component that if you buy a box of books you get a discount and can sell them to your chapter as a fund raising too. She is giving back to the community. You should try and hear her speak - despite talking at the rate of a train, she has a vast knowledge and will answer every personal question to the best of her ability. She is a true gem in the Celiac world.

Shelley Case is known throughout North America as the "celiac expert". A review of her revised and expanded Gluten-Free Diet book lists 3100 gluten-free specialty foods and a directory of over 270 American and Canadian Companies that support this community and creatively supply celiac patients with food that fits their diets. Meal plans, recipes and cooking hints are all part of the book and certainly helped me as I tried to understand what can and cannot be part of a celiac diet. Great resource book and one that you pick up frequently for clarity around food ingredients. I have learned more about the gluten-free diet from it than any other single resource. It is a must for the celiac resource library in any home or institution that educates around the disease.

My Dr. recommended that I get this book and read it to help me better understand my recent diagnosis of Celiacs stating it was a most valuable resource to have.
What can I say? If you have Celiacs, an intollerance or have chosen a Gluten Free lifestyle, this is the must have book to have in your collection. Shelley provides a ton of information, recipes, shopping tips, and companies that make gluten free foods and her experience with them.

I'm looking forward to seeing what her new book has in store when it's released sometime this fall.

HASH(0xa773530c) out of 5 stars The Bible on the Gluten Free Diet May 12 2009
By Dina Aronson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Perfect Paperback
Successfully following a gluten-free (GF) diet involves much more than just avoiding gluten. It is about getting optimal nutrition from healthful foods. And it is not all about GF breads and cookies, it's about eating a bounty of whole foods and incorporating healthful whole GF grains, using them in ways that maximize their nutritional benefits.

As a registered dietitian, I refer to Gluten Free Diet on a regular basis; I trust that the information is research-based, backed with science, and 100% reliable. It is the number-one resource on GF diets / GF living for myself and for my clients.

Shelley Case, a registered dietitian who herself follows the GF diet, is an international expert on celiac disease and the GF diet. The book not only covers the GF diet in detail, but common medical questions and issues that arise among folks suffering from celiac disease, or wondering if they might have it. From everyday concerns to more remote issues, all topics are covered in an easy-to-understand prose, complete with useful tables, appendices, and easy recipes.

The book gets updated regularly, so is up to speed on the more controversial issues such as oats (are they GF or not?), hidden sources of gluten in the diet, cross-contamination issues, limiting nutrients and where to find them, whether a "dedicated facility" is important or not and other labeling issues, and great resources for anyone needing support and information on going GF. One of the best sections of the book is Case's well-researched list of GF manufacturers/brands, bakeries, stores, distributors, and web-sites.

If you've been diagnosed with celiac disease or want to follow a gluten-free diet for any other reason, this is the only book you'll need.

I purchased this book for my daughter, who may be gluten intolerant. It answered ALL the questions that the local doctors were unable to. I highly recommend this to anyone who may be gluten intolerant. Great resource book!!

HASH(0xa77bccc0) out of 5 stars Not for the beginner Sept. 12 2010
By fgjay - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Perfect Paperback Verified Purchase
I purchased this book because of the 5-star rating it received and was highly disappointed. Yes, it is a comprehensive resourse guide, but it is aimed at other registered dieticians or medical professionals, not the average person looking for answers or help with living gluten-free. The sections are not straightforward and are difficult to follow. With the exception of the first few pages on what items do or do not contain gluten, I came away no more educated on the subject than I was before buying this book.

HASH(0xa77bcd8c) out of 5 stars Scholarship and attention to detail May 17 2009
By Peter Felker - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Perfect Paperback
After 25 years working with mesquite (Prosopis spp) as a university researcher, in cooperation with other partners, we began to produce and import mesquite flour into the USA. Very shortly after I got a call from Shelley Case with requests for information about nutritional quality. She requested scientific journal articles going back to the early 80s with all information about mesquite. She called all domestic and international suppliers for information on their products. She prepared an excel spreadsheet to look for glaring differences among the nutritional information. Following this exhaustive literature search and analyses, she summarized the work for her book. The two things that come to my mind when I think of this book are attention to detail and scholarship. One can be sure the data is all inclusive, up to date and correct.

HASH(0xa77bd2dc) out of 5 stars Great resource for celiacs & people following a gluten-free diet May 6 2009
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Perfect Paperback
RE: GLUTEN-FREE DIET, A Comprehensive Resource Guide by Shelley Case, B.SC. RD. Shelley Case's book is THE BEST resource for people who need a gluten-free diet. Although there are few absolutes in terms of a gluten-free diet, registered dietitian Shelley gives us the most accurately researched information on ingredients and other details. There's no point avoiding an ingredient that we really don't have to worry about. You need to know about meal planning, shopping guidelines, nutrition, cross contamination, tips for eating out, GF labeling regulations, & directory of GF specialty vendors and GF products. This book should be one of the first GF reference books you buy.
