In 2018, Dr. Schär is the exclusive food sponsor of the Celiac Disease Symptoms and Conditions Checklist, available on celiac.org. Most people with celiac disease are undiagnosed.

A complete list of Schär products, as well as delicious gluten-free recipes made with Schär products, are available on celiac.org.
