About Me


Gluten Free Jio is my brainchild. It is an online destination, where people concerned about Celiac disease can get information and advice from a teenager’s perspective on Celiac disease, gluten-free living, recipes and travel tips . More importantly by sharing my personal experiences, I want people to know they are not alone, and instead of being overwhelmed by the Celiac tag, they can tackle life by the horns and come out as winners.


I am a 15 year old girl, called Annika Dhariwal, who was diagnosed with Celiac disease at the age of 9. As someone who attends boarding school overseas in the U.K. and has traveled over forty countries , I hope to encourage and inspire other children and adults on a gluten free diet to dream big. Having a serious restrictive diet is no reason to mope at home and hide from the world. Through my blog and website I would like to share some personal experiences of being a gluten free teen in a boarding school abroad, and tips in leading a gluten free lifestyle while at home in India. Gluten free Jio is a platform where you can seek help and find a community for yourself or your loved ones, get comprehensive knowledge about being gluten free in India and abroad, and find comfort knowing that you are not alone.
