    GliadinX Breaks Down Gluten in the Gut

    Reviewed and edited by a celiac disease expert.

    GliadinX is a dietary supplement with the highest concentration of AN-PEP, Prolyl Endopeptidase (Aspergillus Niger), the most effective enzyme proven to break down gluten in the stomach. This high potency enzyme formulation is specifically designed to break down gliadin, and unlike other enzyme formulas that claim to do the same, there is a growing body of research that backs up the effectiveness of GliadinX (see Sources below).

    GliadinX does not prevent and is not a cure for celiac disease, however, extensive scientific research has been conducted at multiple medical centers which has shown that it effectively breaks down gliadin into small, harmless fragments before it can reach the small intestine. GliadinX is perfect for celiacs who still want to eat outside of their home, and not have to worry about cross-contamination, and for those who are gluten sensitive and wish to continue eating gluten.

    12. Treatment of the Extra-Intestinal Manifestations of CD

    the only one that is currently on the market is the gluten-specific enzyme, GliadinX (AN-PEP). Unfortunately, it is only capable of detoxifying 0.2 g of gluten or roughly that of 1/8 of a slice of gluten-containing bread. For this reason, it should only be used as an adjunct to the GFD when there are concerns for accidental gluten contamination and in an effort to ameliorate symptoms, not as a replacement for the GFD.

    I can't be sure...but I think this product actually works. I went to a BBQ where they were cooking burgers on the grill. I brought tin foil to put on the grill to at least safe guard myself. However, the guy cooking was using the same spatula for everything, putting the burgers directly onto the buns. Needless to say, I'm sure there was cross contamination going on. I popped 2 of these pills and I didn't react at all. It could just be that there wasn't any cross contamination...but it seems promising!

    I just wanted to point out that this article says that GliadinX/AN-PEP helps with gluten sensativity, a claim which is contradicted by the article posted March 2020 about enzymes for breaking down gluten.

    GliadinX/AN-PEP does not have any effect on celiac disease or gluten sensitivity because these are systemic diseases but it is very effective in breaking down the gliadin molecule and that's how it helps celiac patients and some gluten sensitive people (only the ones related to the gliadin molecule) maintaining a gluten-free diet. There is no contradiction at all because there is a big difference if something has an effect on the body or on the ingested food. GliadinX has no effect on the body and only on the food. It is clearly established that a gluten-free diet without any cross-contamination is very unrealistic. We can see just on this site alone how many people who are very careful, report cross-contamination or accidental gluten-ingestion. GliadinX breaks down the contaminants in the stomach into small harmless fragments but unlike a vaccine for example, it does not change the underlying disease and until we will have a cure that will change the underlying disease, this is the best we have so far and lots of research shows that it is very good. There are several people on this site who dispute that but are only either expressing their own opinion or referring to other opinions that are not based on any study because all studies with the exception of one study show how effective it is. The only study that is ambiguous is one in which celiac patients were challenged with gluten and AN-PEP was given. They did not have symptoms or got worse but the placebo did the same and this is because the study was much too short.

    Celiac.com 07/30/2007 - When I was growing up, one of the favorite things for my brother and I to have for dinner was fish sticks served hot out of the oven along with our favorite French fries.
    Sure, my mom made many healthy and nutritious meals. In fact, much to our chagrin, she favored healthy and nutritious meals, while my brother and I used to beg for things that tasted great and were sure to put a smile on our faces; like warm, crunchy fish sticks.
    Even through college, every so often, when I was in need of a comfort food fix, I'd head to the store for a box of my favorite fish sticks and a bag of my favorite   French fries, careful ...

    Lifeway introduces real gluten-free kefir! Many celiacs have digestion problems that have been proven  to be alleviated with the aid of probiotic cultures. Did you know that Lifeway Kefir gives you 10 strains of live and active  probiotic cultures per cup?  I tried the strawberry flavor and it tasted like a strawberry milk-shake--thick, creamy and sweet.  You can really taste the difference with Lifeway Kefir, it didn't have the chalky after-taste that other kefirs can have. This is a healthy snack that even kids will love! Not only is Lifeway kefir delicious, but it can  help those with lactose intolerance's while also providing probiotics, calcium and ...

    I recently tried Amy's new Gluten Free Rice Crust Margherita Pizza.  The picture on the box was enticing, and I was impressed with the list of natural and organic ingredients, so I just had to give it a try. 
    Upon opening the box I noticed chunks of real mozzarella cheese sprinkled with basil.  It was the perfect size for my toaster oven, but I have a pizza stone so I decided to prepare it in the oven.  The aroma was very promising, and it even caught the attention of my kids.  The pizza was done in about 12 minutes, and it looked just like the picture on the box.  The mozzarella melted beautifully and I couldn't wait to dig in.  The crust had a ...

    Finally someone has made a taco seasoning that is not only certified gluten-free and organic, but it also doesn't contain the usual preservatives, artificial colorings and flavorings—including MSG!
    Another plus about this mix is that it is salt-free, because most taco seasonings are loaded with salt—I like to control the saltiness of my food, thank you.  
    The tacos I made with Spicely Taco Seasoning came out great, and the mix is also free of milk, soy, eggs, fish, shell fish and nuts, for those of you who avoid these common allergens.
