Coeliac Disease is an autoimmune disorder that primarily affects the small intestine. It is caused by a reaction of the body to gluten, a group of proteins found in wheat and other grains such as barley, rye and spelt. Antibodies are formed which can lead to inflammation and shortening of the villi and can cause malabsorption of nutrients. Coeliac Disease is not a wheat allergy and is different from Gluten sensitivity. Symptoms of Coeliac Disease vary greatly. It is important to see your Health Professional to get the correct Diagnosis. Do not limit your gluten intake until either CD has been confirmed or excluded as cause for your symptoms. Diagnosis for Coeliac Disease requires a biopsy of the small intestine. This can be difficult if you remove gluten too soon from your diet.
Yes, we have found companies in Europe that are producing their gluten free products to the same high standards required by New Zealand and Australian companies. The gluten content of all products sold on this site are <3ppm, so that they can be safely enjoyed by coeliac disease sufferers.
