What is Celiac Disease? People who has allergy to gluten suffer from celiac disease. In people with celiac disease, gluten attacks the small intestine lining and damages the tiny villi. The function of the villi is to absorb nutrients and with damaged villi the body is not able to take in enough vitamins and minerals which result in celiac disease. Without villi, a person becomes malnourished–regardless of the quantity of food eaten.

What is Gluten-Free Diet? People with celiac and other gluten intolerance issues must eat gluten free foods for their entire lives in order to maintain their health. Living a gluten-free lifestyle can seem to be nearly impossible, but because it is gaining popularity it’s getting easier. It was really difficult to find any gluten-free foods that tasted very good, but that seems to be changing as manufacturers develop new recipes and new products hit the market. There are a lot of online resources that offer tips, recipes, and medical advises as well.
Gluten free foods are like unprocessed fresh fruits, vegetables, eggs, meats, fish and poultry and anything that is not made with wheat, barley, and rye.
