I love this food scale. It light and compact so that it does not take up allot of room in the kitchen. It is so easy to use. I turn it on and then I press the Unit button, it measures in ounces, pounds, grams and in Kilograms. And it will easily subtract the weight of the bowl or plate from the item you are weighing. I love the look of the scale. The scale comes in allot of different colors. All in all I give this scale 5 out of 5 stars. This is an amazing product.
I love CSN Stores. It is easy to order from them and it usually takes from 1 to 2 weeks to get the item, depending where it was shipped from. I give CSN Stores 5 out of 5 Stars.

It is estimated that for each person diagnosed with gluten intolerance, celiac disease and dermatitis herpetiformis, 90 are undiagnosed and dealing with health consequences. The average time it takes to diagnose celiac disease from the onset of symptoms is 10 years. Having celiac disease but not being treated for it could lead to serious health problems from osteoporosis to lymphoma to stomach cancer. While other diseases may be treated with a prescription pill, celiac disease has one cure - complete avoidance of gluten, the protein found in wheat, barley, rye and contaminated oats. Gluten free foods are now more widely available, but generally at a higher cost then comparable wheat based products. Three of our local GIG branches have banded together to organize this annual food fair allowing folks to sample foods from over 25 vendors and hopefully find products they enjoy and want to buy regularly.
The Gluten Free Food Fair is a family event, where one can enjoy meeting people and sampling delicious gluten free foods. There will also be a door prize drawing with an estimated 25-30 baskets of gluten free products. The GIG support groups will be distributing information about monthly meetings and other events in the area. There will be resource tables staffed by health care providers knowledgeable about gluten intolerance.
