Nutritional Advice For Gluten Free Diets
Have you recently been diagnosed with coeliac disease and been advised to follow a strict gluten free diet? Perhaps you have been following a gluten free diet for a long-time now but are starting to experience some difficulty and need some assistance.
What is gluten? Gluten is a general name for the proteins found in wheat, rye, barley and triticale – a cross between wheat and rye. Gluten helps foods maintain their shape, acting as a glue that holds food together. Gluten can be found in many types of foods, even ones that would not be expected.
Coeliac disease is an autoimmune disease where there is a permanent reaction to dietary gluten which can cause damage and cause inflammation in the intestine. A lifelong gluten free diet should be adhered to in coeliac disease.
