In Topic: Communion Wafers

13 January 2006 - 04:01 AM

I am a devout Catholic and I know that I can receive low gluten wheaten hosts. My question are:
1. Can a Coeliac tolerate low gluten hosts? I beleive the allowable gluten ratio is 200 (I think this refers to 200 parts per million).
2. If you can tolerate a low gluten host, why can't a person receive a very small portion of a normal wheaten host? In other words, only ingest a very small portion of the host, perhaps half a fingernal or less?



Hi, I'm catholic too and my church offers me gluten-free free wafers for communion and they are made from corn.
I'm the only one who has celiac disease in our parish so I have to go tell them I'm there so I can receive the host.
Som catholic churches in the area won't allow gluten-free free wafers. Why I don't understand the reasoning. Jack

Hi,

I am a 37 yr old male competitive celiac cyclist (Mountain, Road, Track and Cyclocross) from Eastern Canada.

I find that my energy levels drop considerably after 1:30 of racing and / or long rides. I hit the wall big time no matter how much carbo loading I do beforehand. Any suggestions as far as on the bike nutrition? I have been using gels and Gatorade.

I also find that my recovery is slower than other cyclists my age, level... Any suggestions?

I've just started using Vega (www.myvega.com). Still not sure how well it will work.

Thanks...
Mike



Hi, I live in Norhtern New York on Vermont border and also have gluten-free problems. I road cycle and was wondering if anyone knows how to make their own energy bars. I have not found any here that are gluten-free. I also use gaterade. I'm doing a Cycle tour of Utah with Adverture Cycling in June and they are having a gluten-free menu for me. Any help or support for a fellow cyclist is appreciated. Jack

I cycle almost everyday that the weather permits, and also do spinning at the local Court Club 4 nites a week. But having Celiac Disease has kept me from doing any more Cycling Tours. Does anyone know of any US Cycling Tours that offer Gluten Free Meals? Thanks Jack
