Gluten Free, Wheat Free, Easy Baking, Bread & Meals Recipes Cookbook

There are a number of reasons why you may want to cook Gluten-Free. These can range from having a medically-diagnosed autoimmune disease through to gluten sensitivity or making a personal, lifestyle choice.

Celiac/Coeliac Disease and Dermatitis Herpetiformis 

Are both autoimmune diseases whereby eating gluten causes damage to the lining of the gut  (Celiac/Coeliac Disease ) or causes a rash with red, raised patches and/or blisters, most commonly found on knees, elbows, shoulders, bottom and face (Dermatitis Herpetiformis). If you or a family member has been diagnosed with Celiac Disease (as it is called in the US) or Coeliac Disease (as it is called in the UK) or Dermatitis Herpetiformis, you will already know that these are life-long, gluten-triggered autoimmune diseases. The charity, Coeliac UK, estimates that Celiac/Coeliac Disease affects 1 in 100 people, although only 1 in 4 sufferers have had the condition diagnosed, and that 1 in 10,000 suffers from Dermatitis Herpetiformis. In America, over 3m people have been diagnosed with Celiac Disease. These are life-long conditions caused by a reaction to the gluten, which is a protein found in wheat, barley and rye. Anyone who is diagnosed with either of these conditions will need to follow a gluten-free diet for the rest of their lives. Celiac/Coeliac Disease does run in families, which unfortunately means that if an immediate blood relative (mother, father, brother, sister) suffers from the disease, then the chances of also having it yourself increase tenfold to 1 in 10. This disease can develop at any age, even in someone who has previously been able to eat gluten without an issue.

Gluten Sensitivity

In addition to the two autoimmune diseases described above, there is growing evidence of non-coeliac gluten sensitivity. This is when someone experiences symptoms similar to Celiac/Coeliac Disease, but there are no associated antibodies and no damage to the lining of the gut. Currently this is much harder to diagnose. However, it is established medical advice that anyone experiencing these symptoms seeks proper medical diagnosis and is tested for Celiac/Coeliac Disease, before eliminating gluten from their diet.

Choosing to Eat Gluten-Free

Surveys have shown that up to 1 in 3 adults are interested in following a Gluten-Free diet and that interest is growing. In fact, one survey found that 3 out of 4 people who follow a Gluten-Free Diet do so for reasons other than a diagnosed medical condition. Lots of people believe that a Gluten-Free Diet promotes general digestive health and that it reduces toxins in the body.
However, do you think that gluten free baking and meals can't possibly taste fantastic?  Does the idea of wheat free bread and pastry conjure up images of heavy and unpalatable food? Do you think that eating gluten and wheat free meant turning your back on all your most-loved recipes?
