What Is Celiac Disease?
One of the most heavily-scrutinized gastronomic lifestyles today is the gluten-free diet, for although an estimated three million Americans live with the gluten intolerance, the choice to abstain from the group of proteins has also become a popular—albeit annoying—choice for many people unaffected by the disease.
Coeliac Disease, commonly called Celiac Disease or just Celiac’s, is an autoimmune disorder that has a common symptom of pain or discomfort in the digestive tract as a reaction to gluten intake.
What Is Gluten?
Glutens are a mixture of proteins most commonly found in grains like wheat, rye, and barley. Hundreds of different types of proteins compromise gluten, and not all gluten causes adverse effects.
While it’s estimated that 1 in 100 people around the globe suffer from Celiac Disease, it’s estimated that the overwhelming majority do not show symptoms or live with the disease unawares.
