It is unfortunately quite common to hear people say they can’t eat any product containing gluten because they have coeliac disease. Gluten is a protein that is found in some grains, such as wheat, rye and barley. Coeliac disease is also known as coeliac sprue or gluten sensitive enteropathy.

When food containing gluten is eaten by people with coeliac disease, their body will have an immune response that will damage the small intestine.

The antibodies in gluten formed by the immune system can lead to damage in the villi, which are small fingerlike projections that line the small intestine. Nutrient absorption is normally promoted by the villi. If the villi get damaged, nutrients cannot be absorbed properly into the body, and the person will end becoming malnourished, no matter how much he or she eats.

Unfortunately, coeliac disease is much more common than we can imagine. It is a hereditary disease, that means that the risk for people with an immediate relative – parent or child or sibling- with coeliac disease has the possibility of 1 out of 10 of developing the same disease. Coeliac disease can develop at any age.

For people with coeliac disease it is absolutely important not to eat anything containing gluten, not even products that have been in contact with gluten, as the gluten-free diet is the only treatment for coeliac disease.

The gluten-free diet includes naturally gluten-free foods, such as meat, fish, fruit and vegetables, rice, potatoes, legumes and some cereals such as corn, rice, sorghum.

As the number of people with this disease has increased a lot, there are also a lot of gluten-free substitute foods that are now available, such as bread, flour, pasta, crackers and biscuits that are specially made gluten-free.
In Italy we really pay attention to the quality of what we eat: there are several gluten free options of excellent quality and taste.

There are different kinds of pasta, prepared with different ingredients. For example, there is pasta that is made with rice and white or yellow corn flour, but there is also pasta prepared with rice four, quinoa and amaranth.

The brands that produce gluten free pastas normally suggest a cooking time on the package, but they recommend to taste the pasta a few minutes before in order to discover how you prefer it.

During cooking, gluten free pasta normally turns the water into a white colour. Don’t be afraid when you prepare it for the first time!

It is possible to find not only good gluten free pasta, but also biscuits, cookies, cakes, crackers, toasts, breads, and also ham and salami. People without coeliac disease don’t understand how serious the problem is and that you can find gluten in almost everything!

gluten free buy onlineMost of the gluten free products have a special label on them. The Society for the Celiac Disease, AIC, in Italian called Associazione Italiana Celiachia, has a registered symbol for the products without gluten: it is a red ear crossed on a white circle.
