Conquering Celiac Disease: Essential Gluten-Free Products and Tips

Celiac disease is a gastrointestinal disorder where gluten consumption leads to inflammation in the intestines. Managing this condition requires adhering to a specific diet, eliminating particular foods, and choosing gluten-free options. Netrition offers a range of products that cater to those with celiac disease, making their gluten-free journey more enjoyable.

Celiac Disease Explained

When individuals who suffer from celiac disease consume gluten, their immune systems respond inappropriately, attacking the small components of the small intestine known as villi. These villi are essential for nutrient absorption. Consequently, when they're damaged, celiac sufferers risk becoming malnourished during flare-ups due to poor nutrient absorption.

Embracing a Gluten-Free Diet for Celiac Disease

In order to manage celiac disease effectively, it's crucial to avoid gluten consumption. Gluten is a protein present in various grains. Following a gluten-free lifestyle involves steering clear of these grains:

  • Wheat
  • Semolina
  • Farro
  • Barley
  • Rye
  • Spelt
  • Kamut

It's important to remember that some processed foods might also contain gluten, such as certain seasoning mixes, soy sauce, salad dressings, and imitation crab.

Conversely, these grains are gluten-free when they are correctly labeled:

  • Corn
  • Oats
  • Rice
  • Buckwheat
  • Quinoa
  • Amaranth

The following food items are also safe on a gluten-free diet:

  • Meat, fish, and poultry
  • Milk, yogurt, cottage cheese, and cheese (check ingredients of processed dairy products to ensure they're free of gluten-containing additives)
  • Nuts and peanuts
  • Fruits and vegetables
  • Potatoes and other starchy vegetables
  • Soybeans, beans, and lentils

Although it may seem like gluten is present in various foods, there are alternatives available. Netrition provides a variety of Gluten-Free Products that make great substitutions for traditional gluten-containing items. Some examples include:
