    Can Sourdough Make Germinated Rye Safe for Celiac Patients?


    Jefferson Adams

    Celiac.com 05/07/2014 - Current treatment for celiac disease is to eat only foods which are gluten-free. But, what about foods processed to remove gluten? Is it safe for people with celiac disease to eat foods that have been processed to remove gluten?

    Photo: CC--jeffreywProcessing may render gluten-containing foods technically safe celiac patients, but so far live safety testing can only be performed on actual patients, not in laboratory computer models.

    A team of researchers recently set out to test the safety of germinated rye sourdough in a celiac disease model based on the adoptive transfer of prolamin-primed memory T cells into lymphopenic mice. The research team included T.L. Freitag, J. Loponen, M. Messing, V. Zevallos, L.C. Andersson, T. Sontag-Strohm, P. Saavalainen, D. Schuppan, H. Salovaara, S. Meri. They are variously affiliated with the Department of Bacteriology and Immunology at the Haartman Institute of the University of Helsinki in Helsinki, Finland.

    For their study, they modified a celiac disease mouse model to test antigenicity and inflammatory effects of germinated rye sourdough, a food product characterized by extensive prolamin hydrolysis.

    The team then injected Lymphopenic Rag1(-/-) or nude mice with splenic CD4(+)CD62L(-)CD44 high-memory T cells from gliadin- or secalin-immunized wild-type donor mice.

    The team found that:

    1. Rag1(-/-) recipients challenged with wheat or rye gluten lost more body weight and developed more severe histological duodenitis than mice on gluten-free diet. This correlated with increased secretion of IFNγ, IL-2, and IL-17 by secalin-restimulated splenocytes.
    2. In vitro gluten testing using competitive R5 ELISA showed widespread degradation of the gluten R5 epitope in germinated rye sourdough.
    3. However, in nude mice challenged with germinated rye sourdough (vs. native rye sourdough), serum anti-secalin IgG/CD4(+) T helper 1-associated IgG2c titers were only reduced, but not eliminated.

    In addition, they found no reductions in body weight loss, histological duodenitis, or T cell cytokine secretion in Rag1(-/-) recipients challenged accordingly.

    From the results, they concluded that Prolamin-primed CD4(+)CD62L(-)CD44 high-memory T cells do induce gluten-sensitive enteropathy in Rag1(-/-) mice.

    Moreover, germination of rye sourdough does not completely hydrolyze the secalin peptides, which retain B and T cell stimulatory capacity and remain harmful to the intestinal mucosa in this celiac disease model.

    Current antibody-based prolamin detection methods may fail to detect antigenic gluten fragments in processed cereal food products.

    Again, HUH? So bottom line, is it OK for us or not? I think the answer is no. But it's kinda hard to tell from your article. It's way too technical. Please tone it down for us idiots?

    This recipe comes to us from Carrie in Canada.
    1 tablespoon fresh lime juice

    4 fresh tomatoes, blended until juice (I cut them up into small pieces and use a garlic press)
    3 cloves of garlic, minced
    5 green onions, diced
    1 onion, diced
    1 teaspoon cumin
    1 teaspoon coriander
    1 teaspoon turmeric

    2-3 tablespoons of olive oil
    Optional: 1-2 cups of vegetables, shrimp, or other meat.
    Cook onions, garlic, and ginger root in the oil until done. Add tomato juice, spices, honey, and lime juice. Add vegetables or shrimp and simmer until done. Serve over basmati rice.

    This recipe is very exciting to me, because it is a vegetarian version of my favorite food. Prior to going gluten-free and eliminating meat from my diet, I loved chicken tikka masala. This recipe is wonderful because it is an easy gluten-free, dairy-free, and meat-free recipe!
    Vegetarian Tikka Masala (Gluten-Free)
    (serves four)
    Ingredients:
    Masala Paste:

    2 teaspoons fresh ginger, minced 2 teaspoons garlic, minced 1 teaspoon cumin powder 1 teaspoon coriander powder ¼ teaspoon turmeric 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper powder 1 tablespoo paprika 1 teaspoon garam masala Everything Else:
    4 tablespoons olive oil 5 cardamom pods 1 cinnamon stick 1 ½ sweet onions, finely diced 1 large tomato, finely diced ½ cup water himalayan or sea salt to taste 2 medium russet potatoes, diced ½ green cabbage, sliced into thin strips 2 cups frozen or fresh peas coconut milk To Make:
    Mix all of the ingredients for the Masala Paste together. Start  cooking the rice cooking according to the package instructions. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the cinnamon stick and cardamom pods for just a few seconds to add fragrance to the oil, then remove them. Careful not to leave them too long or it will overwhelm the flavor of your masala. Add the onions and stir until they are browned. Add the masala paste and stir for a minute, then add the tomato and stir for another minute, then add the water and bring it to a simmer.  Add Salt to taste. Add the chopped potatoes, cabbage, and peas. Reduce the heat to medium-low and cook, stirring frequently, until the potatoes and cabbage are tender and a fork can slide easily through the potato pieces. Add coconut milk to taste--the coconut milk will create a sauce. Note: you can substitute yogurt for coconut milk if you like. Serve over aromatic Basmati rice or rice of your choice.

    Chicken Marsala is one of those Italian delights that rely on the marriage of a few simple ingredients to forge a rich and satisfying main dish. In this case, butter, wine, mushrooms and cream come together to deliver a delicious sauce that takes the chicken to another level.
    This easy to make recipe for chicken Marsala delivers an elegant gluten-free version of this classic Italian dish.
    Ingredients:
    2 skinless, boneless, chicken breasts
    salt and freshly ground black pepper
    1/2 cup gluten-free flour
    up to 1/2 cup olive or vegetable oil
    8 ounces container of mushroom, sliced and cleaned
    2 tablespoons butter
    1/2 cup sweet Marsala wine
    1/4 cup chicken stock
    1/4 cup sherry or dry white wine
    Optional: 2 tablespoons heavy cream
    Garnish with chopped parsley or oregano
    Directions:
    Cut chicken breasts in two lengthwise.
    Use a meat tenderizer or a mallet to pound meat until flat and about a quarter inch thick.
    Generously season the chicken with salt and pepper on both sides.
    Dredge the chicken in gluten-free flour.
    In a large skillet, heat oil to medium-high heat and sauté each piece of chicken for 3-4 minutes per side until golden brown.
    Place cooked chicken on a paper towel, lightly dab tops to remove extra oil, and cover with foil.
    Reduce the heat to medium and add butter and mushrooms same skillet.
    Season mushrooms with salt and pepper, and sauté for 4-5 minutes. Add marsala wine, sherry, cream, and chicken stock. Cook for 3-5 minutes so liquid is slightly reduced.
    Plate the chicken breasts, and to with mushrooms and sauce.
    Serve with your favorite gluten-free pasta, or your favorite risotto.

    Celiac.com 07/17/2013 - I recently read somewhere that chicken tikka masala is the number one most popular dish in England. That does not surprise me. it's a delicious dish, and seems to be popular wherever it is offered. Many Americans also love chicken tikka masala.
    This kebab recipe offers an easy way to enjoy the tasty goodness of chicken tikka masala at home, with minimal muss and fuss.
    This recipe works great for outdoor summertime grilling, and will definitely have your family and any guests smiling. 
    Ingredients:
    1 cup yogurt
    2 tablespoons garam masala,
    ½ cup chopped cilantro,
    1½ teaspoons grated garlic
    1½ teaspoons grated ginger
    2 tablespoons tablespoon lime juice, plus 1 tablespoon
    salt and cayenne pepper to taste
    Note: Garam masala is a blend of spices. I don't have a special brand, but I am always cautious about spices, and encourage you to read labels to make sure that your brand does not include any wheat or gluten ingredients.
    You can easily make it yourself with a little effort. A typical Indian garam masala includes: black and white peppercorns, cloves, cinnamon, black and white cumin seeds, along with black, brown and green cardamom pods.
    Directions:
    Chicken Tikka:
    Marinate cubed chicken thighs in 1 cup yogurt, 2 tablespoons garam masala, 1/2 cup chopped cilantro, 1½ teaspoons each grated garlic and ginger, 2 tablespoons lime juice, and salt and cayenne.
    Skewer and grill over medium-high heat.
    Serve with yogurt mixed with lime juice.

    Celiac.com 06/23/2018 - If you’re looking for a great gluten-free Mexican-style favorite that is sure to be a big hit at dinner or at your next potluck, try these green chili enchiladas with roasted cauliflower. The recipe calls for chicken, but they are just as delicious when made vegetarian using just the roasted cauliflower. Either way, these enchiladas will disappear fast. Roasted cauliflower gives these green chili chicken enchiladas a deep, smokey flavor that diners are sure to love.
    Ingredients:
    2 cans gluten-free green chili enchilada sauce (I use Hatch brand) 1 small head cauliflower, roasted and chopped 6 ounces chicken meat, browned ½ cup cotija cheese, crumbled ½ cup queso fresco, diced 1 medium onion, diced ⅓ cup green onions, minced ¼ cup radishes, sliced 1 tablespoon cooking oil 1 cup chopped cabbage, for serving ½ cup sliced cherry or grape tomatoes, for serving ¼ cup cilantro, chopped 1 dozen fresh corn tortillas  ⅔ cup oil, for softening tortillas 1 large avocado, cut into small chunks Note: For a tasty vegetarian version, just omit the chicken, double the roasted cauliflower, and prepare according to directions.
    Directions:
    Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a cast iron or ovenproof pan until hot.
    Add chicken and brown lightly on both sides. 
    Remove chicken to paper towels to cool.
     
    Cut cauliflower into small pieces and place in the oiled pan.
    Roast in oven at 350F until browned on both sides.
    Remove from the oven when tender. 
    Allow roasted cauliflower to cool.
    Chop cauliflower, or break into small pieces and set aside.
    Chop cooled chicken and set aside.
    Heat 1 inch of cooking oil in a small frying pan.
    When oil is hot, use a spatula to submerge a tortilla in the oil and leave only long enough to soften, about 10 seconds or so. 
    Remove soft tortilla to a paper towel and repeat with remaining tortillas.
    Pour enough enchilada sauce to coat the bottom of a large casserole pan.
    Dunk a tortilla into the sauce and cover both sides. Add more sauce as needed.
    Fill each tortilla with bits of chicken, cauliflower, onion, and queso fresco, and roll into shape.
    When pan is full of rolled enchiladas, top with remaining sauce.
    Cook at 350F until sauce bubbles.
    Remove and top with fresh cotija cheese and scallions.
    Serve with rice, beans, and cabbage, and garnish with avocado, cilantro, and sliced grape tomatoes.

    Celiac.com 06/22/2018 - The rise of food allergies means that many people are avoiding gluten in recent times. In fact, the number of Americans who have stopped eating gluten has tripled in eight years between 2009 and 2017.
    Whatever your rationale for avoiding gluten, whether its celiac disease, a sensitivity to the protein, or any other reason, it can be really hard to find suitable places to eat out. When you’re on holiday in a new and unknown environment, this can be near impossible. As awareness of celiac disease grows around the world, however, more and more cities are opening their doors to gluten-free lifestyles, none more so than the 10 locations on the list below.
    Perhaps unsurprisingly, the U.S is a hotbed of gluten-free options, with four cities making the top 10, as well as the Hawaiian island of Maui. Chicago, in particular, is a real haven of gluten-free fare, with 240 coeliac-safe eateries throughout this huge city. The super hip city of Portland also ranks highly on this list, with the capital of counterculture rich in gluten-free cuisine, with San Francisco and Denver also included. Outside of the states, several prominent European capitals also rank very highly on the list, including Prague, the picturesque and historic capital of the Czech Republic, which boasts the best-reviewed restaurants on this list.
    The Irish capital of Dublin, meanwhile, has the most gluten-free establishments, with a huge 330 to choose from, while Amsterdam and Barcelona also feature prominently thanks to their variety of top-notch gluten-free fodder.
    Finally, a special mention must go to Auckland, the sole representative of Australasia in this list, with the largest city in New Zealand rounding out the top 10 thanks to its 180 coeliacsafe eateries.
    The full top ten gluten-free cities are shown in the graphic below:

    Celiac.com 06/21/2018 - Would you buy a house advertised as ‘gluten-free’? Yes, there really is such a house for sale. 
    It seems a Phoenix realtor Mike D’Elena is hoping that his trendy claim will catch the eye of a buyer hungry to avoid gluten, or, at least one with a sense of humor. D’Elena said he crafted the ads as a way to “be funny and to draw attention.” The idea, D’Elena said, is to “make it memorable.” 
    Though D’Elena’s marketing seeks to capitalizes on the gluten-free trend, he knows Celiac disease is a serious health issue for some people. “[W]e’re not here to offend anybody….this is just something we're just trying to do to draw attention and do what's best for our clients," he said. 
    Still, the signs seem to be working. D'elena had fielded six offers within a few days of listing the west Phoenix home.
    "Buying can sometimes be the most stressful thing you do in your entire life so why not have some fun with it," he said. 
    What do you think? Clever? Funny?

    Celiac.com 06/20/2018 - Currently, the only way to manage celiac disease is to eliminate gluten from the diet. That could be set to change as clinical trials begin in Australia for a new vaccine that aims to switch off the immune response to gluten. 
    The trials are set to begin at Australia’s University of the Sunshine Coast Clinical Trials Centre. The vaccine is designed to allow people with celiac disease to consume gluten with no adverse effects. A successful vaccine could be the beginning of the end for the gluten-free diet as the only currently viable treatment for celiac disease. That could be a massive breakthrough for people with celiac disease.
    USC’s Clinical Trials Centre Director Lucas Litewka said trial participants would receive an injection of the vaccine twice a week for seven weeks. The trials will be conducted alongside gastroenterologist Dr. James Daveson, who called the vaccine “a very exciting potential new therapy that has been undergoing clinical trials for several years now.”
    Dr. Daveson said the investigational vaccine might potentially restore gluten tolerance to people with celiac disease.The trial is open to adults between the ages of 18 and 70 who have clinically diagnosed celiac disease, and have followed a strict gluten-free diet for at least 12 months. Anyone interested in participating can go to www.joinourtrials.com.
