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".

In the beginning, you might find ANY gluten free bread abhorrent. So, you might wait a few months to give yourself time to forget what wheat bread tasted like.

In my brief research, I did not find any public papers indicating villi blunting for Losartan specifically. There was research and a law suit on olmesartan (other celiac.com members have pointed out). Dr. Hart may have been making clinical observations or has access to medical research that is...

I did find a local store that carries the Canyon House brand and will give that a try. It can be tough as I live in a fairly rural area and we don't have a lot of the resources many of the more urban areas do. It is a 1 hour round trip just to get to the closest town with anything like a Trader ...

Hello, Often drugs that end in ?artan are ARBs, and they work by blocking the angiotensin receptors. I?m not sure what the exact difference is between the two medications you mention, though. Have you called the manufacturer of losartan to see if any of the fillers contain gluten? It might b...
