A Cure For Celiac Disease By 2026?

By Laura (The Gluten-Free Traveller)

Is a cure for celiac disease on the horizon? The University of Chicago Celiac Disease Center believes so and their goal is to find it by 2026.

For this goal to be met would mean everything to 1 in 100 Americans suffering from celiac disease but making it happen will be challenging.

“this goal requires coordinated effort, intensive research, and adequate funding.”

Why You Might Be Feeling Your Oats: They’re Probably Not Gluten-Free!

By Bridget

As most Celiacs know, oats are a questionable food item due to cross-contamination. But many may not know that the risk is deeper seeded than the process plant cross-contamination risk. Years ago, I was told by my doctor that steel cut oats were safe because they were less processed than the old-fashioned version, but that is not true. While I initially believed it was due to amount of processing (believing that steel cut were closer to their whole form), the oats could actually be contaminated due to the ground in which they’re grown, not just the plant where they’re processed!

Domino’s Announces Gluten-Free Crust: One Cheesy Leap for the Gluten-Free Kind

By Zach

Let’s see what’s on the gluten-free dinner table this evening: maybe it’ll be rice noodle spaghetti and meatballs, or maybe a zesty quinoa salad with chicken, or perhaps…a half veggie, half sausage gluten-free crusted pizza from Domino’s! Wouldn’t that be exhilarating? Well, now you can have your own whack at any kind of pie from Domino’s now that they have gone on the record to claim that their glutenless crust is “appropriate for those with mild gluten sensitivity,” however, it is not suggested for people with Celiac Disease – discouraging we know.

Before we get your hopes too high, yes, of course, there’s always some kind of catch or folly with such good news as this. I’m sure this progressive step for the pizza industry isn’t as piquant to those who don’t get to reap the benefits, rather it just keeps you a bit cynical and on the edge. The fact that Domino’s only recommends this new concoction to people with mild gluten sensitivity almost nullifies half the gluten intolerant demographic.
