According to the Daily Mail, one in 40 supposedly gluten-free foods are now packed with various ingredients and it turns out that some of these could, in fact, be dangerous to those who suffer from Coeliac Disease. The topic of gluten-free foods and the ingredients within them is certainly becoming a hot topic, and Test Your Intolerance are determined to find out how badly these ‘gluten-free’ meals could be actually be affecting your health and lifestyle.
The Mail reports that one in 40 gluten-free foods do not comply with the national standard and this could be incredibly dangerous for those who are suffering from coeliac disease. On the back of the recent breakthrough in Australia about a potential cure for Coeliac Disease, it is important gluten-free foods are correctly labelled, and of course, are good for people with Coeliac Disease to eat.
This reported research will be quite alarming for those who suffer from Coeliac Disease, especially as living a gluten-free life is very important to their health and wellbeing.
What is Coeliac Disease?
It is a common digestive symptom which many people suffer from. The small intestine becomes inflamed and is therefore unable to absorb any nutrients. The symptoms of this condition include diarrhoea, abdominal pain and bloating. If you think you may be suffering then you should look at avoiding wheat, barley and rye grains.
The Next Step
The most important thing to consider is whether or not you do actually have the condition or whether you may simply be suffering from a food intolerance to allergy. You can do this by ordering an intolerance test from us and although this will not identify or rule out Coeliac Disease, it will rule out a food intolerance, or in some cases, confirm a food intolerance.
What must be noted, however, as pointed out in the article is that gluten content in gluten-free foods was generally low. It could still be harmful though. Although the manufacturers have taken the certain steps needed by recalling these foods, it is still something that people need to be careful about.
