Can Lactic Acid Bacteria Improve the Therapeutic Benefits of Gluten-free Bread?

Celiac.com 02/22/2013 - Scientists estimate that about 1% of the global population has celiac disease. For those who suffer, following a gluten-free diet is the only treatment available. Among doctors such treatment is known as 'medical nutritional therapy (MNT).'

A team of researchers recently set out to assess use of sourdough lactic acid bacteria as a cell factory for delivering functional biomolecules and food ingredients in gluten free bread.

The research team included Elke K Arendt, Alice Moroni and Emanuele Zannini. They are variously affiliated with the School of Food and Nutritional Sciences at University College Cork, Western Road, and the National Food Biotechnology Centre at University College Cork, in Cork, Ireland.

More and more, consumers are demanding higher quality gluten-free bread, clean labels and natural products. Still, replacing gluten in bread presents significant technological challenges due to the low baking performance of gluten free products (GF).

Sourdough has been used since ancient times to improve quality, nutritional properties and shelf life of traditional breads, sourdough fermentation may offer a better solution for commercial production of GF breads.

In a recent issue of Microbial Cell Factories, the research team highlights how sourdough lactic acid bacteria can be an efficient cell factory for delivering functional biomolecules and food ingredients to enhance the quality of gluten free bread.

Thank you i have the colonoscopy on Tuesday and am dreading the prep more than anything lol. I think what ever the outcome I will try a gluten free diet to see if it helps with the symptoms. I've read so many stories of people going gluten free and symptoms such as depression, anxiety...

A positive on any one celiac test should lead to an endoscopy/biopsies being done by a gastroenterologist. You should keep eating gluten until the endoscopy is done.

Hi LexieA, It's perfectly ok to grieve or feel down because of a diagnosis of celiac disease. Feelings are not obligated to perform on command. But, over time you can adjust to the new diet reality and even like it. Getting used to eating mostly whole foods and more natural foods is a goo...
