Hydrolyzed Wheat Flour Reduces Celiac Symptoms

A new study finds that  wheat flour that is chemically manipulated using sourdough bacteria and fungal proteins did not cause symptoms or antibody response in patients with celiac disease. A 60-day diet of baked goods made from hydrolyzed wheat flour, manufactured with sourdough lactobacilli and fungal proteases, was not toxic to patients with CD Source: […]

Traditional Gluten Free Diets Fail

Researchers give the traditional gluten free diet an F… In this study only 8% of the patients recovered from intestinal damage while following a traditional gluten free diet. After a median 16 months GFD, 38 (8%) patients had histological ‘normalization’, 300 (65%) had ‘remission’ with persistent intraepithelial lymphocytosis, 121(26%) had ‘no change’ and 6 (1%) […]

Biopsy and blood markers for gluten intolerance fail again

Another new study shows just how flawed the biopsy and serum markers are at confirming a diagnosis. RESULTS: Celiac disease was detected primarily in first-degree relatives and patients with autoimmune disorders (40.6%). A gluten-free diet was prescribed to 20/106 patients because of symptoms, which were relieved in only 11. Eighty-nine of the 106 patients entered […]
