GLUTEN-FREE FOODS FOR PEOPLE WITH COELIAC DISEASE
Coeliac disease is an inflammatory disease of the intestine that causes damage to its mucosa. The cause of this inflammation is gluten, and more specifically prolamin, which makes up gluten.
But which foods contain gluten? This protein can be found in certain cereals, especially in spelt, rye, barley and many others.
More than you might expect, therefore, these cereals and therefore gluten are present in many everyday foods such as bread, biscuits, pizza, cakes etc.
Although the symptoms vary from person to person, the main ones that should cause concern and call for investigations are: bloating and abdominal pain, diarrhoea, nausea and vomiting.
