    Photo: Wikimedia Commons: Jana ZillsGwyneth Paltrow is set to launch a new organic gluten-free meal line with her famous trainer, Tracy Anderson. According to People Magazine‎, the new line will be called 3 Green Hearts.

    However, Paltrow's gluten-free foods will not be available in the local grocery stores, but only to visitors at one of her two Hamptons fitness studios. That's right, 3 Green Hearts products will be available in the Hamptons, and only in the Hamptons. So, if you're gluten-free and happen to be on Long Island, by all means, get yourself over to Paltrow's studios for a gluten-free celebrity meal.

    Now, 3 Green Hearts could catch on and grow beyond the Hamptons. Reports by the Daily Mail, that the venture will also include business partner Maria Baum, would indicate that the whole thing might be poised to move beyond the wide lawns of the Hamptons.

    Meanwhile, back in Manhattan, Taylor Swift and her new boyfriend Calvin Harris were spotted munching salad and gluten-free pizza at a small pizza place.

    A source told E! that the pair ordered salad and two gluten-free pizzas. Swift and Harris recently adopted a gluten-free diet.

    Paltrow - not my cup of tea. Nose in the air and head - we need better examples of celebrity concern and involvement.

    One bad reason to go on a gluten-free diet is if you REALLY have that condition you destroy the evidence that helps diagnose that condition (that you are a celiac--gluten intolerant).

    As long as you don't need a certificate from a doctor to help you stay on the diet, this isn't necessarily a problem. On the positive side you also keep a celiac disease diagnosis off the record books, so you won't have to pay higher life and health insurance rates for the rest of your life!

    Celiac.com 07/08/2014 - Gluten-free tennis superstar Novak Djokovic won his second Wimbledon title by outlasting the Swiss player, and seven-time champion, Roger Federer in five sets last Sunday.
    Up 5-2 in the fourth set, Djokovic was unable to capitalize at match point, but held on for a 6-7 (7), 6-4, 7-6 (4), 5-7, 6-4 victory at Centre Court.
    The championship returns the 27-year-old Serb to the world’s No. 1 ranking. Djokovic has seen his fortune improve since moving to a gluten-free diet, and credits his subsequent successes on court to his diet and to his mental conditioning.
    The rivalry between Djokovic and Federer has remained evenly balanced over the years. The two have faced each other 35 times, with Federer leading 18–17.
    They have faced off in a record 12 Grand Slam matches, including two finals, and a record nine semifinals.
    The win marked Djokovic's seventh Grand Slam title, ending a streak of three consecutive losses in major finals, and in five of his past six.
    Stay tuned for news on Djokovic’s progress, and on his gluten-free diet.

    Celiac.com 10/07/2014 - Never far from the intersection of irreverential humor, current events and controversy, Comedy Central's South Park is running the gluten-free gauntlet in its most recent episode, provocatively titled: Gluten-free Ebola.
    In addition to fever dreams of Aunt Jeminah and an upside-down food pyramid, the episode features confident riffs on second-hand gluten, a gluten-fueled Jekyll and Hyde, and gluten-burning townies fearing a gluten-free apocalypse caught up in battles between the FDA, the USDA.
    To mix metaphors, the episode manages to milk just about every facet of their gluten-free diamond for all it’s worth. When Mr. Mackey goes gluten free, he annoys everyone by preaching about how great he feels. But, when the citizens see the damage gluten can do to the human body, SOUTH PARK becomes the first town in America to go gluten free.
    Check out South Park’s Gluten-free Ebola on Comedy Central:

    Celiac.com 11/14/2014 - Jennifer Lopez is our latest celebrity to tout the benefits of a gluten-free diet. Lopez began a dairy- and gluten-free vegan diet in April, and says it helped her shed an unwanted 10 extra pounds.
    Jennifer recently began incorporating some fish and chicken back into her diet, but remains dairy-free. Sources close to Lopez say that her current diet emphasizes vegetables, with protein added as needed.
    Sources close to Lopez report that, even though she is no longer 100 percent vegan, she still follows a largely vegan diet because “…even if you’re 70-80 percent vegan, it’s so much better having those vegetables, greens, and plant-based stuff.”
    Lopez began her initial push after being inspired by the 22-day vegan diet “cleanse” undertaken by Beyonce and Jay-Z in December 2013.
    In addition to a healthy, largely vegetarian diet, Lopez maintains her age-defying physique with rigorous workouts. Following a training regimen developed by Tracy Anderson, Lopez is joining the ranks of celebrities like Gwyneth Paltrow, Victoria Beckham, and Kim Kardashian.
    The method includes work on muscular structure, in addition about a dozen different exercises that change every 10 days, along with dance aerobics.

    Celiac.com 02/12/2015 - Gwyneth Paltrow is making gluten-free celebrity news again for helping her longtime stylist go gluten-free and drop some major weight.
    David Babaii is one of Hollywood's top hair stylists. In addition to Paltrow, his celebrity roster includes Kate Hudson, Scarlett Johansson, Christina Aguilera and Uma Thurman, among others.
    After working with Paltrow for about 10 years, the man Vogue-crowned the "king of curls" had ballooned to 285 pounds with a 44-inch waist. At just five feet five inches tall, he became compelled to lose weight.
    In a recent exclusive with Marc Malkin in eonline, Babaii opens up about how Paltrow and Equinox trainer Will Castillo helped him lose 135 pounds in just four months.
    Babaii says that Paltrow was very supportive, non-judgmental, and encouraging of his efforts. When Babaii asked Paltrow about gluten, he says she advised him not to do anything drastic, and to take it slowly.
    And, armed with determination and with Paltrow's support and encouragement, Babaii began his transformation in earnest.
    Of course, being a personal of Gwyneth Paltrow has its perks. In Babaii's case, whenever he was hungry or in need of support, he could "email her any time of the day and if she wasn't sleeping, she'd reply right away," he told Malkin. "She would say, 'Try this. I think you'll like it. It's not boring.'"

    Celiac.com 04/23/2018 - A team of researchers recently set out to learn whether celiac disease patients commonly suffer cognitive impairment at the time they are diagnosed, and to compare their cognitive performance with non-celiac subjects with similar chronic symptoms and to a group of healthy control subjects.
    The research team included G Longarini, P Richly, MP Temprano, AF Costa, H Vázquez, ML Moreno, S Niveloni, P López, E Smecuol, R Mazure, A González, E Mauriño, and JC Bai. They are variously associated with the Small Bowel Section, Department of Medicine, Dr. C. Bonorino Udaondo Gastroenterology Hospital; Neurocience Cognitive and Traslational Institute (INECO), Favaloro Fundation, CONICET, Buenos Aires; the Brain Health Center (CESAL), Quilmes, Argentina; the Research Council, MSAL, CABA; and with the Research Institute, School of Medicine, Universidad del Salvador.
    The team enrolled fifty adults with symptoms and indications of celiac disease in a prospective cohort without regard to the final diagnosis.  At baseline, all individuals underwent cognitive functional and psychological evaluation. The team then compared celiac disease patients with subjects without celiac disease, and with healthy controls matched by sex, age, and education.
    Celiac disease patients had similar cognitive performance and anxiety, but no significant differences in depression scores compared with disease controls.
    A total of thirty-three subjects were diagnosed with celiac disease. Compared with the 26 healthy control subjects, the 17 celiac disease subjects, and the 17 disease control subjects, who mostly had irritable bowel syndrome, showed impaired cognitive performance (P=0.02 and P=0.04, respectively), functional impairment (P<0.01), and higher depression (P<0.01). 
    From their data, the team noted that any abnormal cognitive functions they saw in adults with newly diagnosed celiac disease did not seem not to be a result of the disease itself. 
    Their results indicate that cognitive dysfunction in celiac patients could be related to long-term symptoms from chronic disease, in general.

    Celiac.com 04/21/2018 - Dear Friends and Readers,
    I have been writing articles for Scott Adams since the 2002 Summer Issue of the Scott-Free Press. The Scott-Free Press evolved into the Journal of Gluten Sensitivity. I felt honored when Scott asked me ten years ago to contribute to his quarterly journal and it's been a privilege to write articles for his publication ever since.
    Due to personal health reasons and restrictions, I find that I need to retire. My husband and I can no longer travel the country speaking at conferences and to support groups (which we dearly loved to do) nor can I commit to writing more books, articles, or menus. Consequently, I will no longer be contributing articles to the Journal of Gluten Sensitivity. 
    My following books will still be available at Amazon.com:
    Gluten-free Cooking for Dummies Student's Vegetarian Cookbook for Dummies Wheat-free Gluten-free Dessert Cookbook Wheat-free Gluten-free Reduced Calorie Cookbook Wheat-free Gluten-free Cookbook for Kids and Busy Adults (revised version) My first book was published in 1996. My journey since then has been incredible. I have met so many in the celiac community and I feel blessed to be able to call you friends. Many of you have told me that I helped to change your life – let me assure you that your kind words, your phone calls, your thoughtful notes, and your feedback throughout the years have had a vital impact on my life, too. Thank you for all of your support through these years.

    Celiac.com 04/20/2018 - A digital media company and a label data company are teaming up to help major manufacturers target, reach and convert their desired shoppers based on dietary needs, such as gluten-free diet. The deal could bring synergy in emerging markets such as the gluten-free and allergen-free markets, which represent major growth sectors in the global food industry. 
    Under the deal, personalized digital media company Catalina will be joining forces with Label Insight. Catalina uses consumer purchases data to target shoppers on a personal base, while Label Insight works with major companies like Kellogg, Betty Crocker, and Pepsi to provide insight on food label data to government, retailers, manufacturers and app developers.
    "Brands with very specific product benefits, gluten-free for example, require precise targeting to efficiently reach and convert their desired shoppers,” says Todd Morris, President of Catalina's Go-to-Market organization, adding that “Catalina offers the only purchase-based targeting solution with this capability.” 
    Label Insight’s clients include food and beverage giants such as Unilever, Ben & Jerry's, Lipton and Hellman’s. Label Insight technology has helped the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) build the sector’s very first scientifically accurate database of food ingredients, health attributes and claims.
    Morris says the joint partnership will allow Catalina to “enhance our dataset and further increase our ability to target shoppers who are currently buying - or have shown intent to buy - in these emerging categories,” including gluten-free, allergen-free, and other free-from foods.
    The deal will likely make for easier, more precise targeting of goods to consumers, and thus provide benefits for manufacturers and retailers looking to better serve their retail food customers, especially in specialty areas like gluten-free and allergen-free foods.

    Celiac.com 04/19/2018 - Previous genome and linkage studies indicate the existence of a new disease triggering mechanism that involves amino acid metabolism and nutrient sensing signaling pathways. In an effort to determine if amino acids might play a role in the development of celiac disease, a team of researchers recently set out to investigate if plasma amino acid levels differed among children with celiac disease compared with a control group.
     
    The research team included Åsa Torinsson Naluai, Ladan Saadat Vafa, Audur H. Gudjonsdottir, Henrik Arnell, Lars Browaldh, and Daniel Agardh. They are variously affiliated with the Institute of Biomedicine, Department of Microbiology & Immunology, Sahlgrenska Academy, University of Gothenburg, Gothenburg, Sweden; the Institute of Clinical Sciences, Sahlgrenska Academy at the University of Gothenburg, Gothenburg, Sweden; the Department of Pediatric Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Nutrition, Karolinska University Hospital and Division of Pediatrics, CLINTEC, Karolinska Institute, Stockholm, Sweden; the Department of Clinical Science and Education, Karolinska Institute, Sodersjukhuset, Stockholm, Sweden; the Department of Mathematical Sciences, Chalmers University of Technology, Gothenburg, Sweden; the Diabetes & Celiac Disease Unit, Department of Clinical Sciences, Lund University, Malmö, Sweden; and with the Nathan S Kline Institute in the U.S.A.
    First, the team used liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry (LC/MS) to analyze amino acid levels in fasting plasma samples from 141 children with celiac disease and 129 non-celiac disease controls. They then crafted a general linear model using age and experimental effects as covariates to compare amino acid levels between children with celiac disease and non-celiac control subjects.
    Compared with the control group, seven out of twenty-three children with celiac disease showed elevated levels of the the following amino acids: tryptophan; taurine; glutamic acid; proline; ornithine; alanine; and methionine.
    The significance of the individual amino acids do not survive multiple correction, however, multivariate analyses of the amino acid profile showed significantly altered amino acid levels in children with celiac disease overall and after correction for age, sex and experimental effects.
    This study shows that amino acids can influence inflammation and may play a role in the development of celiac disease.

    Celiac.com 04/18/2018 - To the relief of many bewildered passengers and crew, no more comfort turkeys, geese, possums or other questionable pets will be flying on Delta or United without meeting the airlines' strict new requirements for service animals.
    If you’ve flown anywhere lately, you may have seen them. People flying with their designated “emotional support” animals. We’re not talking genuine service animals, like seeing eye dogs, or hearing ear dogs, or even the Belgian Malinois that alerts its owner when there is gluten in food that may trigger her celiac disease.
    Now, to be honest, some of those animals in question do perform a genuine service for those who need emotional support dogs, like veterans with PTSD.
    However, many of these animals are not service animals at all. Many of these animals perform no actual service to their owners, and are nothing more than thinly disguised pets. Many lack proper training, and some have caused serious problems for the airlines and for other passengers.
    Now the major airlines are taking note and introducing stringent requirements for service animals.
    Delta was the first to strike. As reported by the New York Times on January 19: “Effective March 1, Delta, the second largest US airline by passenger traffic, said it will require passengers seeking to fly with pets to present additional documents outlining the passenger’s need for the animal and proof of its training and vaccinations, 48 hours prior to the flight.… This comes in response to what the carrier said was a 150 percent increase in service and support animals — pets, often dogs, that accompany people with disabilities — carried onboard since 2015.… Delta said that it flies some 700 service animals a day. Among them, customers have attempted to fly with comfort turkeys, gliding possums, snakes, spiders, and other unusual pets.”
    Fresh from an unsavory incident with an “emotional support” peacock incident, United Airlines has followed Delta’s lead and set stricter rules for emotional support animals. United’s rules also took effect March 1, 2018.
    So, to the relief of many bewildered passengers and crew, no more comfort turkeys, geese, possums or other questionable pets will be flying on Delta or United without meeting the airlines' strict new requirements for service and emotional support animals.
