What is Gluten, and Celiac Disease?

Gluten is a type of protein that is commonly found in wheat, barely, rye, and oats. It gives these certain types of grains the elasticity/ability to hold together.

Some well known foods that contain gluten are, pizza, cakes, cookies, and pasta.

Some not very well known "foods" that contain gluten are, soups, seasonings, packaged meats, medications, condiments, and even candies and gum.

I'd like to suggest this piece for the group;
Because of the article behind it's creation! I know it might look unrelated at first glance, but give it a chance and read the whole article - it will make sense and I think it could help a lot of people here!

This one as well :3
A pangolin never forgets :3

Thankyou very much for accepting me :) I have been gluten free since December 2010 due to a severe Auto-immune liver disorder. great to see a site like this on DA.

Welcome indeed! My wife has been gluten free at least four years. A bit over five years ago she had her appendix burst. After it was removed, she began developing allergies, starting with sulfa drugs, milk, nuts, and peanuts. Soon eggs, tomatoes, and wheat joined what became an ever growing list. She eventually got a few things back: pork, blueberries, and coconut, but she cannot eat most seeds, beef, and so many other things besides what I listed above. While it may not be Celiac she suffers from, she is under the same, if not tighter, restrictions, as her reaction to wheat and gluten is anaphylactic, and therefore even trace amounts can be deadly.

I hope she is feeling much better :) it is amazing how severe wheat, barley, oats and rye are to the immune system. Perhaps in time, she might be able to eat some things again, I have heard of people with gluten intolerance actually also becoming lactose intolerant for a short while too.

My advice, and I am sure you and your wife know this is that be careful of some companies that have gluten free products but also make other products which contain gluten. I know one company who processes wheat products and offers a gluten free alternative, but the trace amounts can be there.

Oh, we are all too aware of cross contamination. It's been just over five years now since she started having problems, and we've learned a great deal about how to work around her many allergies. A handful have gone away, but we cannot count on that to happen with them all. I do a lot of innovative cooking in an effort to insure that she has plenty of things she can enjoy which are safe for her.
