    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.

    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.

    Hummus is naturally gluten-free and high in protein, making it an excellent choice for a power snack. Finding a pre-made gluten-free hummus  is not that difficult, but to avoid possible cross-contamination, it is always better to make it yourself. The nice thing about this recipe is that it is very basic, and you can add other things like sun dried tomatoes or bell peppers to give it the flavor you prefer.
    Traditional Hummus (Gluten-Free)
    Ingredients:

    1 cup dried garbanzo beans 7 cups water - for cooking 1 teaspoon baking soda 1 ¼ teaspoons salt- or to taste ½ teaspoon minced garlic ¼ cup tahini ½ cup fresh squeezed lemon juice To Make:
    Rinse the garbanzo beans, drain and cover with water to cover by 3 inches. Soak beans for 4 to 6 hours. Drain in a colander and rinse thoroughly. (Please note: the key to this hummus recipe is to just soak the beans for the 4 to 6 hours the recipe calls for. If you soak them overnight they will absorb too much liquid and you will have very mushy beans and lots of water. If you don't have time to do a 4 to 6 hour soak, you can do a quick soak by bringing the beans and soaking water to a boil and boiling for 1 minute. Remove the beans and water from the heat and let stand for 30 minutes before draining and continuing with the recipe. ) In a large pot combine soaked beans, the 7 cups water and the baking soda. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer until the beans are falling apart, about 1 hour. Stir any foam that comes to the surface back into the beans while they cook. Pour beans and any remaining cooking liquid into a large bowl and cool to room temperature in the refrigerator. Transfer beans and liquid to a food processor. Add the salt, garlic, tahini and lemon juice and process until smooth. If the mixture is too thick (it should be the consistency of thick cream), add water 1 tablespoon at a time until the hummus is smooth. Serve with veggies or gluten-free chips, or crackers and enjoy!

    I love just about every type of curry under the sun. Before I started eating gluten-free, one of my favorite curries to make was S&B's Golden Curry. It's an easy, cheap, delicious curry block that is available nearly everywhere I have ever traveled.
    The S&B company makes a number of delicious curry blocks that I now cannot use because they all contain wheat flour. However, I was shopping at Nijiya market in San Francisco's Japantown recently, when I noticed a red S&B box with Japanese writing. It looked to be an import from Japan. Unlike the other S&B curries, which list wheat flour as an ingredient, this one contained sorghum. The product is called "Curry No Ohji-sama." It comes in a red box with a cartoon of a child with a band of yellow stars across his head.
    Now, technically this product is not sold as gluten-free, so please evaluate it based on your own personal needs and judgement.

    The English label listed the following ingredients: Palm Oil, Corn Starch, Dextrin, White Sorghum, Salt, Sugar Beet, Vegetable Paste (Palm oil, pumpkin, carrot, cabbage, sweet corn, spinach, tomato, bell pepper, molokhiya), Curry Powder, Chinese Cabbage Extract Powder, Caramel, Fruit paste (Canola oil, Mango, Pineapple, Passion fruit, Apple, Banana), Yeast extract powder, Sucrose fatty acid esters, Artificial flavor, Paprika color.
    After my first try, I found that I needed to modify the curry with a bit of additional curry powder, and a dash of soy sauce. However, once I did, the result was a rich, delicious curry that goes great with rice or with your favorite gluten-free noodles.
    Lastly, this recipe also works well with pork or beef in place of chicken. It is also delicious as a vegetarian dish.
    Ingredients:
    2 tablespoons olive oil
    1 chicken breast about 6-8 ounces (substitute pork chop or beef)
    1 small onion or ½ large onion, chopped
    1 large potato or 2 small potatoes, chopped
    1 large carrot, chopped
    4-6 Crimini, brown, Shitake, or other button mushrooms
    ½ cup zucchini
    1½ tablespoons of curry powder - I use Trader Joe's.
    1 tablespoon gluten-free soy sauce or tamari
    Directions:
    Cut vegetables into bite-size pieces. Halve or quarter mushrooms, depending on size.
    In a medium saucepan, sauté onion in oil over medium heat until soft. Add meat and cook until lightly brown.
    Add remaining vegetables and sauté for a few more minutes, until vegetables are slightly cooked.
    Add 2½ cups of water and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 15 minutes, skimming off and discarding any foam. Remove from heat.
    Add S&B curry cubes, curry powder and soy sauce. Cook according to package directions.
    Serve over rice, or with your favorite gluten-free noodles. Also goes great over quinoa! Makes 4-6 servings.

    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.

    Celiac.com 06/19/2018 - Could baking soda help reduce the inflammation and damage caused by autoimmune diseases like rheumatoid arthritis, and celiac disease? Scientists at the Medical College of Georgia at Augusta University say that a daily dose of baking soda may in fact help reduce inflammation and damage caused by autoimmune diseases like rheumatoid arthritis, and celiac disease.
    Those scientists recently gathered some of the first evidence to show that cheap, over-the-counter antacids can prompt the spleen to promote an anti-inflammatory environment that could be helpful in combating inflammatory disease.
    A type of cell called mesothelial cells line our body cavities, like the digestive tract. They have little fingers, called microvilli, that sense the environment, and warn the organs they cover that there is an invader and an immune response is needed.
    The team’s data shows that when rats or healthy people drink a solution of baking soda, the stomach makes more acid, which causes mesothelial cells on the outside of the spleen to tell the spleen to go easy on the immune response.  "It's most likely a hamburger not a bacterial infection," is basically the message, says Dr. Paul O'Connor, renal physiologist in the MCG Department of Physiology at Augusta University and the study's corresponding author.
    That message, which is transmitted with help from a chemical messenger called acetylcholine, seems to encourage the gut to shift against inflammation, say the scientists.
    In patients who drank water with baking soda for two weeks, immune cells called macrophages, shifted from primarily those that promote inflammation, called M1, to those that reduce it, called M2. "The shift from inflammatory to an anti-inflammatory profile is happening everywhere," O'Connor says. "We saw it in the kidneys, we saw it in the spleen, now we see it in the peripheral blood."
    O'Connor hopes drinking baking soda can one day produce similar results for people with autoimmune disease. "You are not really turning anything off or on, you are just pushing it toward one side by giving an anti-inflammatory stimulus," he says, in this case, away from harmful inflammation. "It's potentially a really safe way to treat inflammatory disease."
    The research was funded by the National Institutes of Health.

    Celiac.com 06/18/2018 - Celiac disease has been mainly associated with Caucasian populations in Northern Europe, and their descendants in other countries, but new scientific evidence is beginning to challenge that view. Still, the exact global prevalence of celiac disease remains unknown.  To get better data on that issue, a team of researchers recently conducted a comprehensive review and meta-analysis to get a reasonably accurate estimate the global prevalence of celiac disease. 
    The research team included P Singh, A Arora, TA Strand, DA Leffler, C Catassi, PH Green, CP Kelly, V Ahuja, and GK Makharia. They are variously affiliated with the Division of Gastroenterology and Hepatology, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, Boston, Massachusetts; Lady Hardinge Medical College, New Delhi, India; Innlandet Hospital Trust, Lillehammer, Norway; Centre for International Health, University of Bergen, Bergen, Norway; Division of Gastroenterology and Hepatology, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, Boston, Massachusetts; Gastroenterology Research and Development, Takeda Pharmaceuticals Inc, Cambridge, MA; Department of Pediatrics, Università Politecnica delle Marche, Ancona, Italy; Department of Medicine, Columbia University Medical Center, New York, New York; USA Celiac Disease Center, Columbia University Medical Center, New York, New York; and the Department of Gastroenterology and Human Nutrition, All India Institute of Medical Sciences, New Delhi, India.
    For their review, the team searched Medline, PubMed, and EMBASE for the keywords ‘celiac disease,’ ‘celiac,’ ‘tissue transglutaminase antibody,’ ‘anti-endomysium antibody,’ ‘endomysial antibody,’ and ‘prevalence’ for studies published from January 1991 through March 2016. 
    The team cross-referenced each article with the words ‘Asia,’ ‘Europe,’ ‘Africa,’ ‘South America,’ ‘North America,’ and ‘Australia.’ They defined celiac diagnosis based on European Society of Pediatric Gastroenterology, Hepatology, and Nutrition guidelines. The team used 96 articles of 3,843 articles in their final analysis.
    Overall global prevalence of celiac disease was 1.4% in 275,818 individuals, based on positive blood tests for anti-tissue transglutaminase and/or anti-endomysial antibodies. The pooled global prevalence of biopsy-confirmed celiac disease was 0.7% in 138,792 individuals. That means that numerous people with celiac disease potentially remain undiagnosed.
    Rates of celiac disease were 0.4% in South America, 0.5% in Africa and North America, 0.6% in Asia, and 0.8% in Europe and Oceania; the prevalence was 0.6% in female vs 0.4% males. Celiac disease was significantly more common in children than adults.
    This systematic review and meta-analysis showed celiac disease to be reported worldwide. Blood test data shows celiac disease rate of 1.4%, while biopsy data shows 0.7%. The prevalence of celiac disease varies with sex, age, and location. 
    This review demonstrates a need for more comprehensive population-based studies of celiac disease in numerous countries.  The 1.4% rate indicates that there are 91.2 million people worldwide with celiac disease, and 3.9 million are in the U.S.A.
