World's Longest Apple Tart Promotes Apples, Celiac Disease Awareness

Celiac.com 01/13/2012 - In an event that was part local apple festival, part celiac disease awareness promotion, and one-hundred percent record-breaking bake-off, a team of community members in Buenos Aires has baked the world's longest apple tart. One third of the 984-foot tart was made gluten-free to promote celiac disease awareness.

Enthusiastic volunteers removed sections of the tart from numerous bakery trucks parked along Rivadavia Avenue, the world's longest avenue.

They then assembled them end to end, making sure to keep the gluten-free portions carefully separated from the rest of the tart.

This is the third year in a row that the tart-baking group, which is based in from Cinco Saltos, Argentina, has organized the tart bake-off.

Another goal of the event, say event organizers, is to draw attention to their local apples, which they call the most delicious apples in the world.

Says organizer Maricarmen Garcia, "It is the longest tart in the world but this time on the longest avenue in the world. We are happy to bring the tart here to the people of Buenos Aires for them to try. It is exquisite. It is homemade and we are promoting that we have the best apples in the world."      

About twenty-four thousand people helped to consume the tart.

Too close for comfort -- cross contamination is treated as an afterthought in this "separate 1/3 gluten-free pie".

You would think that there is enough people out there, people with celiac disease, that we'd be able to push for a better standard than 20ppm. The problem is the FDA. Too much lobbying involved. It's no different than the fight people are having with Monsanto. I hear that there are several medications that are showing promise in Canada who I think also has a better standard than us.(not positive about that though)

Make sure that you ask the doctor how long she has to stop the supplements before you have her levels tested and be sure to take them all with you when you have the appointment so the doctor knows what she is taking.

Talk to your doctor. With your family history and symptoms he/she may be able to diagnose based on resolution of your symptoms and family history. Also check with your local hospital if it has it's own lab. Mine covered any labs at a greatly reduced cost based on a sliding fee scale. Did you have an MRI before they did the spinal? Celiacs with neuro impact will have white spots on an MRI that resemble the lesions found with MS. Many neuro doctors don't know this. I went through what you did and they did a spinal on me also based on the MRI results. If my doctor had know what the UBOs (unidentified bright objects) were I would have been diagnosed a couple years sooner than I was. Make sure if you supplement that you ask your doctor which ones you need to stop taking and for how long before they do a blood test to check levels. Sublingual B12 is a good idea when we have nervous system issues, but needs to be stopped for at least a week for an accurate blood level on testing. I hope you get some answers and feel better soon.

Thanks for that. Will get her tested for deficiencies. I did take her to a naturopath and get her on a bunch of vitamins, but she never was tested via bloods, so will get on to that, thanks

Hi Could a mod please move this post: and my reply below to a new thread when they get a chance? Thanks! Matt
