FERNDALE, Wash. — Botanical Labs on Tuesday introduced its gluten-free line of liquid dietary supplements across its Wellesse line of liquid supplements — calcium/magnesium, vitamin D3, iron and B-complex — at the Celiac Disease Foundation's South Florida Chapter Gluten-Free Expo in West Palm Beach, Fla.
Gluten intolerant consumers and celiac disease sufferers are a fast-growing group, the company stated, totaling approximately 3 million diagnosed and undiagnosed cases throughout the United Syayes. Many existing pill-based medications and supplements use excipients found to contain gluten, Botanical Labs noted. As many as 18 million Americans suffer from gluten sensitivity, who are predisposed to certain vitamin and mineral deficiencies.
Botanical plans to have all its Wellesse liquid supplements formally qualified as gluten-free through the Gluten-Free Certification Organization.
