    Reviewed and edited by a celiac disease expert.

      If gluten is detected, a wheat symbol will appear. Otherwise, a smile will show up if the sample contains less than 20 parts per million (ppm) of gluten. 

    Celiac.com 11/13/2019 -  First off, it’s important to note that making the transition to your new gluten-free diet can feel overwhelming. This, is normal. If you are newly diagnosed with celiac disease or a gluten intolerance, you just discovered something major about your body and the way it handles nutrients.

    While I eat anything except beets, liver, and haggis, I pre-ordered a NIMA gluten tester as a present for my Celiac partner, and it recently arrived. We are looking forward to a more relaxed dining-out experience knowing we have the option of verifying staff statements when they do not give us confidence, which happens not too infrequently. Up until now, our only choices were living with the insecurity, or leaving and finding another place to eat, which is not a great way to start an evening...

    Since being diagnosed with celiac disease I have found that adding gluten-free vitamins to my diet has been particularly helpful with my overall healing process.  Unfortunately, the vast assortment of gluten-free vitamins that were necessary to incorporate into my daily diet had quickly taken over my cupboard, and it wasn't long before I started to grow tired of the whole process of figuring out which vitamins I needed to take, and when to take them.
    I was looking for an easy way to simplify this whole process, and that is when I discovered CeliAct, a nutritional supplement made especially for people with celiac disease.  This is not just your typical g...

    I've now been gluten-free for over 20 years, yet I've never broken down and purchased a bread machine, nor have I ever used one. It should go without saying that I am also eating very mediocre gluten-free bread.
    Recently I was given the opportunity to review Panasonic's new SD-YR2500 Automatic Gluten-Free Bread Maker. This is the first bread maker made by Panasonic specifically for making gluten-free breads. Needless to say, I was very excited to finally get to test out this machine and discover why they are so popular among those who are on a gluten-free diet.
    The machine arrived undamaged, which was no surprise given how well it was packaged—...

    After years of dreaming about such a device, a pocket-sized home gluten sensor is finally here!
    I received mine and immediately began testing products that I eat often, just to make sure that they are really gluten-free. It is well known that even products that are labeled gluten-free sometimes test positive for gluten.
    After opening a fairly large box that it was beautifully packaged in, I was surprised to see that it is indeed pocket-sized! The quick start guide allowed me to run a test almost immediately, and the first product I tested was a can of re-fried black beans that I eat regularly on corn tostada shells.
    The test was very simple...

    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...
