  • About Me

    In 1994 I was diagnosed with celiac disease, which led me to create Celiac.com in 1995. I created this site for a single purpose: To help as many people as possible with celiac disease get diagnosed so they can begin to live happy, healthy gluten-free lives. Celiac.com was the first site on the Internet dedicated solely to celiac disease. In 1998 I founded The Gluten-Free Mall, Your Special Diet Superstore!, and I am the co-author of the book Cereal Killers, and founder and publisher of Journal of Gluten Sensitivity.

    Celiac.com 05/15/2013 - Lemon chicken may be one of those Americanized Chinese dishes, like sweet and sour pork, and chow mein that have become a staple at nearly every Chinese restaurant in the country. Still, I love it. However, being gluten free, I have to be careful when dining out. Even if the restaurant doesn't use flour outright, there's always the possibility of cross contamination.
    One way I've resolved this tension is by learning how to make a delicious gluten-free Chinese-style lemon chicken using a corn-starch-based batter.
    In this delicious recipe, chicken is battered in egg and corn starch, then cooked until it's crispy and golden on the outside, tender on the inside. It is then covered with a sweet, tangy lemon sauce.
    The taste will rival your favorite Chinese restaurant, and have your eating team trading high-fives. Serve it over rice, and garnish with a nice steamed vegetable, like broccoli.
    Chicken Ingredients:
    8 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves, cut in chunks or short strips ½ cup cornstarch ½ cup green onions, sliced ½ teaspoon salt â…› teaspoon black pepper ¼ cup water 4 egg yolks 2 cups cooking oil Lemon Sauce Ingredients:
    1½ cup water ½ cup lemon juice 3½ tablespoons light brown sugar 3 tablespoons cornstarch 3 tablespoons honey 2 teaspoons gluten-free chicken bouillon ½ teaspoon ground ginger, or more if desired Preparation:
    To make the batter, combine the cornstarch, salt, and pepper in a shallow dish. Beat the egg yolks with the water until combined. Add the egg mixture to the cornstarch and blend until smooth.
    Heat the oil in a large wok or skillet.
    Dip the chicken pieces into the egg mixture, until well-coated. Cook in the hot oil until golden brown, turning as needed. Remove with a slotted spoon and drain on paper towels.
    To make the sauce, combine all the ingredients in a saucepan. Cook over medium heat, stirring, about 5 minutes until sauce boils and the brown sugar and bouillon granules are fully dissolved.
    Place the chicken in a serving dish, top evenly with sauce, and top with the sliced green onions.

    Celiac.com 02/05/2015 - If you love fried chicken, and especially if you love great fried chicken that happens to be gluten-free, then you’ll love Japanese-style fried chicken that uses potato starch to create a golden crispy crust, and a truly tender, juicy fried chicken that will have empty plates asking for more.
    This chicken is marinated in soy sauce, ginger and garlic, then dredged in potato starch and fried until it is crispy, yet tender, and delicious, oh, so delicious...
    Ingredients:
    1 pound chicken thighs – boneless skin-on cut into 1-inch pieces 1 tablespoon fresh ginger, grated 2 cloves garlic, minced 2 tablespoons gluten-free soy sauce 1½ tablespoon sake 2 teaspoons granulated sugar ½ cup potato starch lard or vegetable oil for frying Lemon wedges as garnish Japanese Mayonnaise (Miracle Whip), as desired Hot mustard, as desired Directions:
    Add the ginger, garlic, soy sauce, sake and sugar to a bowl and whisk to combine. Add the chicken, then stir to coat evenly.
    Cover and marinate in the refrigerator for at least an hour.
    Line a wire rack with paper towels and have your tongs or cooking chopsticks handy.
    Put the potato starch in a bowl.
    Add a few pieces of chicken to the potato starch and toss to coat each piece evenly.
    Add 1 inch of vegetable oil to a heavy bottomed pot and heat until the oil reaches 360 degrees F.
    Fry the chicken in small batches until the outside is a golden brown and the chicken is cooked through.
    When chicken is golden brown, transfer to the paper towel lined rack. Allow to cool. Serve warm with small bowls of hot mustard and kewpie (Japanese mayonnaise).
    If you want the chicken to stay crispy longer, especially if you are transporting it, or plan to serve it later, you can fry the chicken a second time. Just repeat the frying process after it has cooled off.
    Serve with lemon edges, mustard and mayonnaise.

    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.
