Gluten Family Tree
Posted 15 September 2005 - 08:18 AM
I am so mad at myself that I lost it! I have a binder with all Celiac info in.... just not my little family tree. I don't even remember where I got it from. It was a handy tool though!!
So, if anyone has one or knows where I can find one.... I would REALLY appreciate it!
Diagnosed 12-2003 positive biopsy confirmed w/bloodwork
gluten-free from 5-2004

"Spelt (Triticum spelta) is a species of wheat.
Spelt is considered to be a hybrid of emmer wheat and einkorn wheat that originated in the Near East, where it was cultivated at least 3000 years ago...
As it contains a high amount of gluten, it is suitable for baking. However, the gluten in spelt is different from that in normal wheat and therefore spelt can be consumed by some gluten-intolerant people."
SOME gluten intolerant people -- not all. And some who are allergic to wheat can eat it. But I know plenty of people with celiac who have gotten very sick.
