Do you remember those special moments with your parents after a youth sporting event when your entire family sat down together for a scoop of ice cream? For me, it was after a long week at a swim meet. My mom would take my siblings and I out for something special after all that hard work competing.
My husband and I, and our Red Mango family want families to make those special memories like we used to as kids. So, all of our yogurt is gluten-free for those suffering from celiac disease. According to the Mayo Clinic, celiac disease is a digestive condition triggered by the consumption of the protein gluten. Those with celiac disease who eat foods containing gluten, experience an immune reaction in their small intestines, causing damage to the inner surface of the small intestine and an inability to absorb certain nutrients. This can cause abdominal pain and diarrhea. Eventually, the decreased absorption of nutrients that occurs with celiac disease can cause vitamin deficiencies that deprive your brain, peripheral nervous system, bones, liver and other organs of vital nourishment.
Those who live a gluten-free diet, especially children, may miss out on some of the yummiest of treats on special occasions (post-soccer game celebrations). Yet, Red Mango RiverPoint offers yogurt without gluten so that you and your family can celebrate with the best of them.
Come on in...you deserve to celebrate too!
